I bought these bags as Christmas presents for my daughter and son-in-law. They loved them. I was very very happy with the price and they were delivered as promised. I am sure they will keep them warm when the camp this summer in the mountains.

The Grizzly 2 person sleeping seems to be a well made product. After only one outing I found it to be comfortable and very warm. You won't want to use the bag in summer. The zipper is well made and easy to use without jamming. The storage bag that this fine sleeping bag comes in is a piece of junk. The seams ripped out the first time I tried to put the bag back into it. It is too small for this giant bag.

Me and my husband love these sleeping bags! It took us a little while to figure out how to connect the two together though, lol. We've used them a few times, indoor and outdoor, and they're fabulous! I love that they open on both sides, no claustrophobia and it's your very own temperature control. The weight of the bag feels nice, and the flannel is great too. They fit well into their stuff bags, and it's easy to connect them and disconnect them (once you figure it out ;). We have used them up the mountains in Northern Utah on summer nights (still gets cold at night in the mountains), and they work great - I tend to get a little too hot, but that's what the zipper is for, but I would assume they'd work well for very cool temperatures as well. We haven't used the travel pillows. We love them!!

excellent sleeping bag for spring time or summer time camping or for taking it to friends house for sleep overs.

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.

We bought two of these for a summer camping/driving trip around the US. We stayed in some fairly cold places (about 30-40 degrees at night) and we were warm enough if we layered clothes before getting into the bags. Personally, I wouldn't recommend these bags if you are sleeping outside in less than 30-degree weather unless you have polar bear blood in your veins. When we slept in warm places, we usually stayed unzipped because the bag was too warm. Neither of us is fat, but we are very tall and the bags were long enough. If you are over 6'5", your feet will press against the bottom of the bag. Fyi: you cannot zip together two bags to make one large sac.

I bought these for my grandsons in Canada, and they love them. They love that the inside is a flannel, not a slippery nylon. Great for sleepovers or summer camping.

Like the combination of nylon outside, flannel inside for warmth; amount of fill is good for sleepovers, summer camping and more (yet to be determined). Very happy with it so far.

I bought this for my son for Christmas and he loves it. He has not actually camped yet but tried it out in the house. Very warm and in the summer he'll use it to lie on top of. The package arrived in just a few days.

We bought this double bag to withstand the cold summer nights tent camping in the Rockies and the Dakotas. The external canvas is sturdy, but doesn't smell like our old scout bags, and the inside is soft. We camped last night with it (low of 40 F) and it was really warm. You could easily use it in a cabin in colder temperatures. The bag rolls up larger than the tent, so be aware that it takes up a lot of your space. It is too heavy for anything other than car camping, but if you like a little luxury, this is great on top of the blow up mattress. The bottom is attached, and the zippers, which are large and easy to maneuver, go down to the bottom. You would have to professionally clean this. My husband is 6', and he said that some one a few inches taller could fit in it comfortably. It is wide enough that we could have added a kid (you could get two toddlers in with the parents if they don't kick). Very happy with this product, but I am unhappy that it is made in China and not North America.
