REI Polar Pod +25 Sleeping Bagis rated3.0out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromSolid sleeping bagThe bag is very nice and has all the features that you find in upper end more expensive bag - draft tube covering the zipper, a pouch for a small camping pillow, wide chest area and a comfortable hood. I do have a couple of things that I don't like about the bag. The foot box is a little small and not very wide. I have a size 11 foot and I thought that it was tight. I am also 6 foot 4 and the bag is barely long enough. If you're taller than me it might not fit you. Lastly, I didn't think that it compressed very well. I have a mountain hardware 0 deg and a mountainsmith 20 deg bag that packs up smaller. With that said it will compress down small enough to get into your backpack's sleeping bag compartment. The bag is warm, comfortable and the price was very right. I would recommend this sleeping bag despite the noted designs deficiencies.

Rated2out of5byfromI'd give it a five out of ten.Used canoe camping in BWCA. I was in a rush on this last-minute trip and didn't think it through. Mummy bags were invented to torture people who are "sprawlers". My mistake for purchasing it. The bag is well-made, temperature rated properly (it got down to 33 deg. and I do not doubt it would have handle 25). I am 5'10", 220# and found the standard bag to be extremely cramped in the footbox area, short, and I could not comfortably zip it up fully or my arms would have been trapped. Like most bags it is "slippery" and doesn't stay on a pad well. A zipper pull needs to be on the inside of the bag. I did discover after my trip was over that there is a handy little zip pocket for a small flashlight, wallet, or what have you. To sum up, if you don't mind sleeping with your legs sandwiched together it was great, for us sprawlers who like to be able to turn over and move our legs, stick with a rectangular bag.
