Bought this bag for a one-nighter on my way to the top of Mt. Washington, NH. The temperature rating is based off of being able to survive (not necessarily in comfort though). The temperature on the mountain was around -15 so I slept with most of my gear on and did fine, but would not have counted on the bag alone. It's really hard to get situated inside of and the zipper can be a real pain. I super-glued the bottom end of the zipper since it was always coming undone during my test runs and is nearly impossibly to put back together in the dark. It's bulky and heavy too but I wasn't going too terribly far and compromised size for price. In the end, it was about what I expected. Not an awesome bag, but it was cheap and kept me alive.
My favorite and warmest bag. -20 is the extreme rating and id consider it comfortable at -15 with long underwear. Great material and compression sack. Comfortable with room for someone a little bit bigger or a lot taller, Im 5'10 170. Pros durable 250 thread nylon shell, double stuffed hood, great loft and comfort, compression sack with four sinch straps, very compressible and light. Cons short 1/3 length zipper makes a very warm bag, not very usable above freezing
I bought this bag hoping to use it for winter kayak camping. I was expecting temperatures to be in the low 30s F. The price was right and the bag cozy but I couldn't pack it down tight enough to fit into the hatch of my kayak. Sent it back, will try out the Ledge Featherlite Ultra Lite instead.

I took this sleeping bag up to Lake Superior in the winter, and it worked great. I'd say the low was somewhere around 0-10F, and it kept me warm. The weight and comfort were both ok, and the built in compression sack is pretty nice. It's a great value for the price.
This sleeping bag was bought to use this winter. We camp in 30 degree and lower weather and you would not know it while all snug in this Ledge Featherlite Sleeping Bag. The price was unbelievable low. I would encourage anyone to buy it. Sure it is not your bed at home but that is the point of getting away from home. To do something different. Sleep somewhere different!!
Took two of these in the hill country of Texas where it got down to the lower 20's. Roomy, comfortable, warm (lived up to its promise) and satisfied with the durability. Overall, good buy! The con is that it is bulky and not made for backpacking.
