Summary

Well made, but not for me. I'm up and down numerous times during the night.

Pros

  • Excellent materials and manufacturing

Cons

  • Cumbersome ingress/egress

Received one as a warranty replacement for a failed Zissou 700 and returned for credit the next day. Though it's warm and roomy I found it a chore to get in and out of. I'm up numerous times during the night and in and out is a bothersome challenge.

Because the blanket is sewn in at waist level one must slide in the legs to hip level and squiggle down and exiting is the opposite. I couldn't bear it, so I returned it and got the Nitro 800/20 and that's my bag; of course, another review.
