Rated5out of5bymilypanfromSolid sleeping bag, warm and toastyMore like 4.5 stars.
I bought two of these so that my partner and I can zip them together into a double sleeping bag.
--> the fleece-y material on the inside. OMG, soo comfy! We were debating between this REI Siesta +20 (fleece-y) with the +35 model (not fleece-y) in the store, and this one is the way to go if you don't like the initial cold when getting into a sleeping bag, are not concerned with weight, and like to camp/sleep in comfort.
--> roomy. Plenty of room to move around and turn.
--> warm. We took these puppies out in late December, avg night temp in the low 30's, and these were perfect (granted, they're rated for +20).
--> easy to pack. The sack that comes with this is thankfully oversized, so you can haphazardly roll this thing up and start shoving it in, and it'll pack down easily.
--> zipper snags sometimes. Hard to get it going and it catches once in awhile.
--> loose drawstrings kept falling on my face. I imagine this is only an issue when the bag is used in a double formation, since the top sleeping bag is now rotated. Hard to explain, you'll see.
Overall, a great bag for the price, very glad we purchased these!

Rated3out of5byZambezifromHUGEI took this camping last weekend for the first time. It was probably in the mid 30s at night - not quite freezing. I was bit cold at night, by my camping mates didnt get a wink of sleep because they were too cold. I liked sleeping in this bag, but it was a huge hassle to pack. We could barely fit it in with all of our other gear. In the stuff sack, it's about 1.5' in diameter and almost 2' long. I plan to try to get a smaller stuff sack before trying to return it, but it's really only useful for camping if you're close to your car - it'd be a huge inconvinence if you're hiking to your site.
