If you are looking for a warm, roomy bag for car camping or hunting camp, then this baby is the ticket! As long as you don't have to pack it too far it is great for early and late season outings. Add in the price I got it for and I am all grins! Honestly, I think you would be hard pressed to find a bag this cozy with as much room and still be under $150.

I am happy with this sleeping bag. It is very comfortable. There's room to move around in it which I like. I used it camping in Joshua Tree where it probably didn't get below 30° and I was warm enough but I did wear thermal underwear when I slept. It could definitely not be used for backpacking because it is heavy and fits into a large stuff sack. I think it's great for car camping.

We read multiple reviews before purchasing a total of five Alps Mountaineering sleeping bags, some long and down to 0 degrees. Yes, they are a bit bulky, but warm!!! And stuff readily back into the stuff sack with no problem. Used for Colorado elk hunt where warm in late October at 15,000 feet is pretty vital. Not for our back-packing in the west, however. Good prices for a quality Alps Mountaineering product....from bags to tents to chairs. We've got them all and all are durable, functional and of high quality. We recommend!

The ALPS sleeping bag was unacceptable. The stitches holding the zipper on broke the first time I unzipped the bag. I called Sierra trading post and they said to mail the sleeping bag back for a full refund. I repacked the box, put on the return label and dropped it off at UPS. I got my full refund quickly. Thank you Sierra Trading Post.

This is a great bag for the money, took it camping in the High Desert mountains of California at June Lake in 20- 25 degree weather with 50 mph high winds this past weekend and I slept like a baby.. this is not a bag you would pack, it is big and bulky and you would not be able to pack this anywhere, I personally bought an X-Large compression stuff sack for mine since the bag is so big, it's something I would recommend, but it is great for Car\RV camping, if you toss and turn and roll over at night like I do then this bag is for you... with lots of room and an easy zipper feature this bag is great for men or women.... my wife now wants one for her after she commandeered it the second night camping... :-) or I should say now I have to buy myself another one.. :-)

Bought this bag to replace a bulky nylon/cotton one I've used for years. This is so much better for camping and hiking. It wasn't as compact as I thought so I'll will have to buy a compressor bag eventually. For now, it's warm, easy to carry and suits me fine for weekend camping with the kids.

Keep in mind I have not used this product ouside yet.
Initial impression is good. Comes with its own drawstring stuff bag, does not pack down as small as I thought it would, but its a winter bag, so how much can you really ask? I'm sure I could use a proper compression bag and get it much smaller. Zipper configuration seems appropriate, hood by the head is good. Zipper did not get stuck up on fabric when I tried it out, thats always good, of course your milage may vary. Seems every sleeping bag zipper gets caught at some point or other. Material seems to be appropriately durable.

This bag is warm, has a baffle protecting you from drafts through the zipper opening, and is VERY comfortable. It was well worth what I paid for it which with the coupon was around $47. Don't expect to bring this thing backpacking, it is super bulky and not lightweight. It is perfect for River trips (what I bought it for) or car camping. This bag has enough padding to get by without having a sleeping pad underneath. I'm 5'9 165 and this bag was roomy on me.
