Great bag for cold weather conditions. Very comfortable; easy to slide in and out of. Temperature rating was accurate. Kept me very warm on a clear and cold 14 degree night. Keep the good deals coming STP.

I am returning this, as it is not big enough in girth for me at 325# and 6'1, and not as long as needed either. No doubt if you are thinner, it might also be a little longer, but still seems it might be a bit short for taller people over 6'2".
One positive note, it seemed quite warm, just trying it on for size. I did like the color, and feel if the material, but the other cons outweigh those minor details.
Also, one or two of the threads in the outside of the bag were loose, so I don't know how it would hold up over time.
Also, unless you are very strong, don't try to stuff it back in it's cover-it's not suitable, and my wife and I had to do it as a team, on the bed, to make it happen, after 2 tries. I don't know how anyone could do it while camping. Besides that, I think I strained my arm and hands in the process (I have arthritis and am prone to tendonitis), so beware if you are not in prime condition to attempt getting it back in the provided cover.
Next time I may spend a little more to get a better bag, and one that will surely fit me better. Lesson learned.

I decided to take a chance on this bag based on other reviews. It will be my bag for all car camping and Elk camp. I'm 6'3" 275 with broad shoulders, and while I wouldn't call this bag "roomy" I do fit in it comfortably. It is a very bulky bag, which is understandable being I bought it for $50.00. It has a good amount of insulation and a nice foot box area. I liked the way the hood fit my head and when cinched left me a decent breathing hole. If you're looking for a backpacking sleeping bag, look elsewhere. But for all other uses, I think it will be great. I can't attest to the 0 degree rating yet, but I will say I couldn't stay in it more than a few minutes in my house:) I'll try to remember to update after Elk camp in a couple of months. The zipper did want to snag in a few places, but when I slowed down a bit and used a little care, it worked fine. Again, $50!!

This sleeping bag fits my 6'1" husband perfectly, will have to wait for cooler weather to try it out. Zipper does seem to be a little tricky. I may be almost afraid to zip it completely as it could zip up and around your shoulder, but what if it got stuck??
Yes it can, we have washed ours in cold water and air dried it for about a half hour, don't used fabric softener at all, but you can use a dryer sheet to make it smell nice and fresh, our at least that is what the wife say's!! :-)
