I got the 6' version. There is one size shorter and one size taller. I got this sleeping bag so I can put together an ultra light backpack gear. I am 5'9" and average.

The construction and material is as good as the name brand bags. However, this is a body tourniquet.

The bag is sooooo tight at the shoulders and chest it compresses the down in the upper body making the bag cold and comfortable. After a while the bag bag cuts off circulation at the arms and shoulders.

So now I know how WM made the bag so light.

I definitely DO NOT recommend this bag for muscular or obese people. However, for the 14-year-old high school cheerleader, it will be just fine.
