i am new at backpacking and this was my new bag for the trip. it wieghed in at 3.8 lbs and a little bulkier than i thought. it had to ride on the outside of the pack. i was sleeping in a hammock tent in about 40 dagrees out and i woke up cold quit a few times. i admit i am skinny and get cold easliy but i thought the bag would be a little warmer. on solid ground i am sure it would be much better but the bottom side let air in and get chilly. we were hiking in bishop at about 10- 11,000 feet. o yeah the zipper handle broke off the second night but was able to put back on and rebend tab
I bought 3 of these, one for myself and one for each of my boys, who are starting in Boy Scouts. The quality seemed great on all three and they arrived promptly in excellent condition. The workmanship and details seems first rate. After camping the weekend in an adirondak (open air cabin), at around freezing temperatures, my elder boy reported that it was plenty warm enough and compared favorably to a -30 down bag he'd been borrowing despite being half the weight and size.
The company specifies that these are lightweight bags that are aggressively labled, so if you don't know how to stay warm/don't have the other necessary equipment the temperature rating is probably far lower than you will want to use them comfortably. A tent would have been far warmer than the cabin because of the open airflow, and he was using a medium weight pad and wore his base layer to sleep in.
These compress to around the advertised size and stuff easily. The stuff sacks are good and a nice bonus for the price. If you're not worried about weight or size, these may not be for you. But if you plan on packing sleeping bags around, I don't know if you can find anything comparable for around this price. I've done a fair bit of mountaineering and mountain climbing and I have owned nicer bags, but not for less than three or four times this price.
This is a well constructed, lightweight (seriously), and all around comfy bag. The stuffing is a little thin for a zero degree, but it'll keep you comfortable with little more than your birthday suit on in 25+/-5 degree weather. I prefer the stuffing being the way it is due to the fact that I don't like half my backpack being filled by my sleeping bag. This rolls up nice and small (and lightweight), has a side pocket for your flashlight or wallet, zips down one side, and has a cord to pull the opening shut around your shoulders. It was easily worth the price I paid for it.
Conclusion: Get it unless you are messing around with temps in the subzero range; it might be a good idea to get a bit more stuffing (or at least some long Johns) for less than 0 degrees.
I bought the featherlite 0 deg. bag because I knew I was going snow camping. Snow being frozen and all I thought I needed a good sleeping bag for the occasion and because it was a hike I needed a lightweight bag.
The bag is defiinitely warm but not warm enough to be snow camping. I use a gortex shell around my sleeping bag to stay dry, I slept in medium wieght polypropylene longjohns and was on a thermarest medium weight sleeping pad. We were in a snow cave, however, there's no way I would have slept outside in this bag. I know my sleeping pad was insufficient. I could feel that. But I could feel the cold through the bag and I was inside out of the weather and the outside temperature only got down to 20 degs F. So the ambient temperature never got down to zero and this bag was not warm enough to sleep inside a snow cave, even with a shell over the bag and longjohns. I could feel the chill on any point that seemed to touch the sleeping bag. Elbows, knees, toes. It was a chill. I wasn't going to die but I was chilled all night. Not enough to shiver but definitely enough to be uncomfortable. Disappointing for sure.
Construction seems decent. The weight is great. It's just not what it cllaims to be. I wonder how they test that.
I took this sleeping bag into the Andes for some overnight hikes. The temperature dropped to 30 degrees on most nights. I did not zip up the bag on any of the three nights, and I was wearing a long shirt and long pants. My guess is that it would probably be comfortable down to about 15 degrees, zipped up and wearing regular clothes.
Not bad for the price, and about as lightweight as a synthetic bag can get.

I got a great deal on these bags the day after Thanksgiving when they were on sale. Wish I had bought 2 more for my wife and I at the sale price! The sleeping bags made my two sons very happy. They will use the sleeping bags on Boy Scout camping trips and family camping trips.

I recently took this sleeping bag on a week long camping trip where my husband and stayed the night in Colorado and Arizona. Even though the climates were different in each state the sleeping bag kept me a comfotable temperature at night. I love it and highly recommend it!

I use this sleeping bag mostly for motorcycle camping. So far I've got about 2 weeks of use on it and everything has held up well. I've been caught in a couple of nights that were in the upper 30's and the bag kept me warm. I don't think I'd want to sleep in this bag much below that temperature though. Seeing that I use it on my motorcycle, weight is not a huge issue, although to me, it doesn't seem very heavy but I'm not lugging it on my back all day. The bag packs down fairly small but not as small as the more expensive bags. This is a great all around bag for the money.

It should be ok according to the reviews I have read. They recommend loosely loading in a top load or better yet, a front load because there is no agitation. Wash with care and tumble dry on low with a couple of tennis balls. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 23, 2012
