After buying several so called "big and husky" bags, I found my North Face Goliath and haven't looked back since. I have used my bag year round in Michigan for the past 4 years and absolutely love it! Yes, it's big and fairly heavy at 4 lbs 4 oz. but I'm 6'2" and 300 lbs myself. A big guy needs a little more room than the average fella. I have used mine in deercamp where the low was -20 F. and high was +15 F.above for 2 weeks straight, the only time I got cold was when out hunting. When this bag says "comfort temp; 0F/-18C" they really mean COMFORT, not just a survival rating.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I am 6'2" 245 and athletic, not big bellied. I hike in the North Cascades and tend to sleep cold after a long day hike in. I looked and looked and bought several high end $250.00+ bags with unsatisfactory results. If you are muscular, wide, or have a big belly and don't mind carrying 1 to 1/2 lb more in bag wieght, this is the bag for you. I have slept in 20 degree weather in windy conditions and stayed very cozy. I have also been in near zero temps and never had a problem staying warm.

I really do like this bag. I am 6' 4'' and I have more than enough room in this bag. It feels like sleeping in a bed at home. It is just WAY too heavy and doesn't pack down nearly small enough. I can barely fit it in the sleeping bag compartment of my backpack. I sleep warm, so this bag is good for me down to about -25 F.

A nice warm bag with lots of room which I still take on shorter, really cold trips.

The warmest synthetic bag I have ever used, this bag ROCKS, I had to strip down to skivies on a -25C Canadian night. All my previous experience has been with Military issue down bags. I was warmer in this bag than I ever was in Mil. Spec bags, now if only I could afford a 4 season tent!

Finally, fat men can sleep in comfort in the back country. I am 5' 11" and 245 lbs. I slept through one the windiest nights at 12,800' in Rocky Mountain National Parks Boulder Field snug and warm in my TNF Goliath. Yeah its big and yeah it heavy... but so am I!
