Review this Week to Win Your Own Zissou

We're giving away a DriDown Zissou 12 sleeping bag to one lucky reviewer next week, thanks to Sierra Designs. Review your outdoor gear by Sunday, April 14, to be entered to win.

That's the Zissou 12 bag we're giving away, not Steve Zissou, protagonist of Wes Anderson's 2004 film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

So, how does the Sierra Designs DriDown Zissou 12 sleeping bag (above right) compare to Steve Zissou as played by Bill Murray (above left)?

Which one fits in the smaller stuff-sack?

A great question! I'm guessing that Steve Zissou would not willingly be placed in a stuff sack.  Not without some pithy comments and a fight.
