I bought two of these bags for my children. I like that they have their own stuff sack however after we used this sleeping bag once, the bottom started coming apart and the stuffing is coming out. I would not buy this bag again. The other bag has held up so far but we have only used these a couple of times. They seem pretty cheap, which, based on the price, is accurate.
This is a great bag for a first timer camp outing. My son slept warm all night as the outside temp dropped to 32 F and we had 15 MPH sustained winds and gusts up over 25MPH, and this was in Stone Mountain GA in November. It was the coldest my son would expect to go camping in. He did keep on all his clothes. He did not wiggle out of it either. He slept for about 9 hours and never woke up. I like the weight and size as he can use this until he gets to be about 5'5" or more. Then either it will be worn out or he will have to have a longer one. If you expect to camp when it gets below 32 you probably will need a warmer bag. I have found that the sleeping bag ratngs are about 10 degrees lower than what most people find comfortable. At the rated temperature you better have on a base layer and a secondary layer of clothes. The stuff sack is just fine for the bag and it can compress it down pretty small for a young kid to get into a backpack or easily strap on the outside. I like the synthetic bags for kids as you can just toss them in the washer. Expensive down bags and kids don't mix very well. Most kids are not going to hike Ultralight for 12 miles a day to need a down bag. Happy camping!
This bag has it all-there is a nice drawstring toward the head to the child can nestle in warmly, there are also two rubberized anti-slip strips on the bottom of the bag. Plus the orange color is a little unique.
