The length given in the description is rather deceptive. Yes, the bag is overall 64 inches, but only if you pull on it on both ends! Also, the actual bag (not including the pillow area at the top) is only 52 inches long. This is definitely a short bag for a young child - there isn't much room to grow. We can probably use it until my son is about 6 years old but I doubt if it will be useful past that. Not what I was expecting.Otherwise it seems like a good bag - definitely cute (flannel inside is printed with camping equipment and tents) and seems like it is made well.I'd recommend this to a friend IF they only wanted a bag for a young child and planned to upgrade in the near future.
