I used this bag for the first time over Labor Day weekend up in the Sylvania wilderness, when it got down to the lower 40s at night. In just my underwear and nothing else I was toasty warm, despite the howling wind and chilly rain. This is a great sleeping bag for lower temps. It is a little bulky, ...

Bought this bag for our 7 year old after a cold night camping with the cub scouts the month before. Bought it for car camping and not for backpacking as it would be too bulky and heavier than I'd want for that. We're not using this in sub 20 degree weather but figured our little guy could always unzip the bag if too hot. Used it in probably mid 40's this past weekend in Joshua Tree Ntl Park and he said the temp was fine. The bag does seem like it's for those 5' 10" and below to me. It's not a kids bag but, for the price, I thought this bag would be very nice for its purpose --and it is.

Sure, it's big and bulky, but it's a synthetic 0-degree bag. Get a compression sack and you can shrink it down to fit in a backpack pretty well. Just used it in 30 degree overnight temps, and it performed like a champ. No complaints at all, especially for the price!

Bought this for my wife. She is always cold. We plan to camp in the summer months. She climbed into this sleeping bag in our 67F living room in her winter pajamas and was comfortable, but not hot. Time will tell whether or not this bag will really be able to keep her warm.
On a negative, I thought I read some online descriptions that stated this bag had a neck collar (like the 20F ALPS sleeping bag that I have does), but the bag we received contains no such neck collar to keep the cold out of the bag.
The ALPS Mountaineering 0Â°F Echo Lake Sleeping Bag has a stuff size of 18" x11", with a compresion sack you should be able to compress it a bit more, though it would not be much more.

No. This bag is just super thick, and the material it uses is not very compressible. I worked to pack this bag as small as possible and ended up having to attach it to the outside of the backpack due to its girth/size. Compression sacks can only hold something that is compressible in a compressed state; they cannot compress something more than it can be compressed. (Duh.) This bag cannot be compressed.

I bought the -20 alp bag and bought the compression bag - bought both the large and xlarge - neither of them fitted, so i had to buy a 2xx compression bag and got it to go but barely - the 2xx is 50L. granted too the -20 is a bit bigger. plus it is a long
