What a great bag for the bigger folks out there. I'm 6'1" and about 260 lbs. I'm a stocky guy overall and had a hard time finding a bag that would clear my shoulders. I bought the Casaval XL long version and it has plenty of room. For those who don't like the mummy style, this one has that extra room to move around a bit. The length is a bit much for me but I didn't want to chance the shorter bag at 6'4" rated height. I don't mind the extra length as it can be used to keep my feet warm with my fleece gear when it gets cold.
As far a performance, it's great. I've used it out in about 10 degree Celsius weather in Canada and it's not too warm and not too cold for me. I am going to test it out to its limits this fall when I go elk hunting.
