I had a chance to use this bag this past weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is very warm but I kept my camper at 55 degrees. I have no doubt I would stay very warm and much lower temps. The fill is very lofty and this makes for a very compfortable and warm bag. The only complaint I have is the incredible chemical smell it has. It's powerful. The smell filled the entire 2 upper floors of my house within minutes of opening the bag. I left bag unzipped and open lying on the floor of one room for a week before putting it in my camper. It still smells bad. While camping and sleeping in it I kept waking up because the chemical smell was irratating my sinuses and throat. Once out of the bag my clothes then reek of this smell. So, I'm guessing it's from the dyes used in the canvas cover. This chemical, whatever it is, kind of worries me as this bag is made in China and they are not exactly known for making safe products. Anyway I'd be interested if other buyers experience this with the cavas bags. I intend to call the company and ask about this issue. I would not by another due to this issue.
How accurate was the sizing? sizing seemed to be fairly accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality seems good. There are a lot of loose threads in the stitching. I'm not sure if they are going to be a problem or are just left over.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I purchased the sleeping bag for my boyfriend (who loves to camp), but since it is cold in the NE at the moment we aren't really able to use it. He loved it so much that we now have "camp outs" on the family room floor to watch movies! It is great for an adventurous couple (or even a cozy movie night couple!)
This is a great bag, warm and has more room than you need to fit 2 large framed adults; 5' 5" and 6' 3". Needed leg and shoulder room for my husband, and this bags fits the bill ! The zippers can be a bit of a pain; go slow with them because they can be a little tricky. Don't lose the storage bag that this sleeper comes with, because you'll need it to store and travel with this beast. Great purchase.

Love the stuff sack system for this sleeping bag. The bag is so big can't believe how easy it is to get it back in and compact. We use the bag as a mattress when it is too warm to sleep inside. Roomy and warm. The two side zippers are great.
I do a lot of winter car camping and wanted a fleece lined, double sleeping bag. After a lot of online research I settled on this brand. After it arrived and I unpacked it to take a look at it, my nose was assaulted by very strong and unpleasant chemical smell. I'm assuming it might be the required fire retardant used. The smell was so bad and so strong I aired it out for a few days and used fabreez on it hoping it would dissipate. Since I didn't like the idea of sleeping in strange chemicals, I opted to take it to a Laundromat that had large capacity washers and driers. What a pain! It is a very large and bulky sleeping bad and not easy to lug around. However, once it was washed the smell was gone. I just got back from a 5 day camping trip in 33 degree weather and the sleeping bag was very comfortable, warm and cozy. Due to its size and fluffyness, it is a bit of a challenge to roll up and stuff into the stuff sack. You gotta have determination to get it back in.
In summary, its a great sleeping bag if you wash it before you use it and don't mind a bit of extra work to get it back into the stuff sack.

Purchased this sleeping bag for my boyfriend and I. We are regular campers/outdoorsy people and needed a sleeping bag that would accomodate us on warmer summer trips as well as cooler fall/winter trips. This bag was EXACTLY what we needed. Both of us are 6ft tall and usually feel claustrophobic in sleeping bags, not in this one. We had plenty of room. The double zippers were perfect since I usually wake up earlier than he does and try my best not to disturb his sleep and we could individually cool off in the event we got too warm. The lining is super soft and comfortable. I should also add that the stuff sack for it is great, super easy to get the sleeping bag packed again and seem very durable. All around possibly the best investment we've made in our camping gear in quite some time.

Is 10 pounds the actual bag weight or the shipping weight? It says bag weight but 10 lbs seems very heavy for a double 25 degree bag. It's important to me because of back-packing weight.pwerwath on Dec 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello pwerwath, yes, 10 pounds is the bag weight. Keep in mind this bag is for two people, and reviewers are stating the bag is most compatible for car camping. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 18, 2013
