Rated5out of5byathiker1951fromA Great Sleeping Bag.I used this sleeping 6 times on the AT. I was very comfortable. I'm 5'10" and I had plenty of room. Some previous comments were that the zipper snags easily. I had no problem as I zipped the bag slowly. For the price it is a great buy, although I purchased it when it was on sale. I still would pay regular price for it.

Rated4out of5byCallensThoughtsfromGreat Bag. Losing Retention @ Year 3First real bag I've owned. First REI purchase. Satisfied with the product but after living in a tent for 2 years, the fella has lost heat retention or I am a wimp, or both...
Used the bag nightly as I nomadically traveled from house to house (or backyard to backyard) in Austin during college. Served me well. Approximately 450 nights of warmth, but it's far from a 25 degree bag nowadays.
Still looks clean on the outside, but inside it is full of death. (Matthew 23:27)
I'll keep the Lumen around for the summer, but my eyes are fixed on the REI Igneo for a warmer option.
Perhaps the front load washer only warning wasn't a bluff?

Rated4out of5byTwistedtreesfromAhhh...bed!I have very specific needs that involve being able to be warm on a cold boat, especially in the PNW, over the winter months. Warmth, as well as condensation, is a consideration in any overnighting I do, and I have found that climbing into this bag eases any worries I have about waking up cold and damp. I like the pouch in the head for keeping pillows and clothes close. Ultimately, this is a great bag, for both boat, as well as camping usage. I dislike the zipper's often snagging, but am patient, and find that the reasons to stay in the sack are often welcome.

Rated4out of5byjmitchellfromGreat Sleeping BagI bought a youth version for my son and adult long for myself, 6'2" @ 160 lbs, to use during cub scout camping trips. I chose this model as they are very well made and have features like small zipper pocket just outside hood for flashlight or whatever, pillow pocket to hold camping sized pillow in place, and was rather light and compact for the temperature rating of 25degF. After laying in a lot of them this one had the most room in the shoulder and knee area for me.
Our first trip got down to upper 40s and with pajamas on we were more than comfortable. I actually got hot and my son slept with arms out most of the night. I am normally a cold sleeper. It rained one night and our tent leaked a little but the water mostly beaded on top of the sleeping bags rather than soaking in which was a nice surprise.
I look forward to many good trips with these bags and am not hesitate to use them this weekend when it's suppose to get to 32degF.

Rated5out of5byzzyzx2fromLite weight, compactCan be compacted into a small space. There is a nice place in the hood for a compact pillow. There is plenty of room for the legs to move around. Not just for car camping as it is lite weight. I went with the long version which is suitable for someone up to 6 ft 6 in. I am 6 ft tall. Someone who is closer to 6 ft 6 in may want to make sure that there is plenty of room for the legs to move if desired.

Rated4out of5byJust1morefromWarm in very cold weatherI recently used this bag in the Eastern Sierras while backpacking. The first two nights were 11 and 17 degrees, respectively. The Lumen kept me warm all night, although I was wearing one layer of clothes, including wool socks. The bag was a little shorter than expected. I'm 5'8" and I not sure if this bag would have been comfortable had I been and inch or two taller.

Rated4out of5byLike a JackalfromGood buyPacks down really well, didn't get to test the degree rating though. The temp only got down to high 30's, it was really toasty so I am inclined to trust the temp rating on this one. Best feature by far is the built in pillow case as it were in the hood, I stuffed it with some extra clothing to make the best camping pillow for me to date. Yes you could rationalize that it's unnecessary, the stuff sack that comes with the sleeping bag can be stuffed and used as a pillow. Yes it can, but it slides all over the place during the night. So I really liked this little feature, as well as the little zip pocket on the side.

Rated5out of5byAsian Mountain ManfromPerfect 3 Season BagBest Performance to Price ratio i can find. I purchased this bag during their annual sale. Even without the sale i think this has everything you need as far as tech and features in a <$200 bag. I recommend this bag to anyone who asks.
I don't know about the durability. I have only used it 4 times so far. I'll check back when i feel like i have abused it.
