I bought this bag for my 14 year old "linebacker" of a son. He loves it. It is big enough to fit his broad shoulders, and it is super warm. We went camping in sub freezing (28 degrees) temperatures, and he slept outside, with no tent (thought he was Bear Grylls), and said he wasn't cold at all. May be a bit heavy to hike in, but let's face it, if you are buying an XL sleeping bag, you ought to be able to handle a little more weight in your pack!
