While this sleeping bag seems nice enough and I really thought it was the one for me, I found it disappointing and will be returning it. Ill share the pros and cons with you to hopefully help you with your shopping decision on this sleeping bag. First the good stuff. What I really liked about this sleeping bag is the extended head area and the ability to cinch it closed a bit forming a hood of sorts for colder weather. This is a really nice feature without having to get a mummy style bag. The flannel lining is nice and soft. I also liked that it comes with a nice storage duffle bag and the sleeping bag is easily put back into it. Heres what I didnt like. First, it is not as big as it is claimed to be. The on-line description (and on the box) says it 40 X 90. That is not true. It Measures about 35 X 80. Thats a big difference, but not the real deal breaker for me. This bag is also bulky and would not be good for warmer weather camping. I was looking for more of a 3 season sleeping bag. Another thing I didnt like was that this bag cant be zipped entirely open and used like a blanket. Ive done a lot of shopping around for the perfect sleeping bag for me, and Im starting to think that all sleeping bags with the head area probably cant be entirely zipped open. The final kicker and the main reason Im returning this sleeping bag is that the nice flannel lining is not connected to the outer shell. Meaning it is not rip-stop fabric on one side and flannel on the other side. The flannel lining is almost like a separate sleeping bag inside of a rip-stop sleeping bag. I can see this getting all twisted up and annoying while trying to sleep in it. I hope this info helps you with your shopping /buying decision. Thanks for reading.
Great bag for car camping. This is big so your not hiking with it. That said, it is so warm and comfortable. Love how big and room it is and super warm.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Amazingly warm
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I have not yet camped in this bag, only tried it in livig room, but I wanted a soft annd roomy car camping bag with more room than my mummy bag, and this seems great so far. I like the way the head area has a special area, it seems more comfy. Can't wait to car camp soon!
We used our Grizzly Rip-stop sleeping bags last week on a camping trip. We were very pleased with the product. Very comfortable inside but durable on the outside. We slept well and didn't end up sweating . I recommend this sleeping bag.
I gave this sleeping bag as a present this Christmas and it was a big hit! The quality is apparent when first opening the box. It comes with a duffel bag for storage and transport which appears very durable. One feature that we discovered when we took it out of the box is that the top portion has draw cords so you can effectively make it like a mummy sack. I love that versatility. The flannel inside is very soft. I would definitely recommend this sleeping bag.
I have not used it yet, but when it came in the mail, I unpacked it and snuggled in it for a while. It is comfortable and cozy, warm and nice looking. I plan on using it when I travel. The quality and workmanship seem to be very good. I would recommend his to my friends.
