This is an outstanding value for the money. I bought two for my kids thinking that if they get torn up, no problem. Very well made, been out camping with them and had no issues. There are, certainly, better bags available but no better value, particularly if you combine them with an STP coupon.

This is a great bag for car camping. It is warm and soft and not too heavy but it has a HUGE stuff size. Not good for hiking or backpacking. But overall, as long as you are not also carrying a bunch of stuff with you, it is quite nice to use. Warm and cozy. Just big.

I'm 5'11" & big chested, but this bag fits well anyway. It's very warm in 30-40 degree weather. In 20 degree weather, I would want a wicking liner, to minimize humidity, and a really good insulating ground pad. As a backcountry hiker and camper, living and camping in the Rocky Mountains for the past 20 years, I have to say this bag is neither heavy nor too big for backpacking. It's a sturdy, functional bag; suitable for use as a blanket in hot weather, as a bag in spring and fall, and as a component in truly cold weather. It's a good tool to have in the camp bed toolbox.
I couldn't tell you for sure exactly what type it would need, but it doesn't compress that much so you'd need a pretty big one. The overa size in the sack that comes with it is about the size of a basketball.

I purchased the Alps Mountaineering Medium compression sack, it works great!!! I stuff my bag down in it instead of rolling it up and putting it in the stuff sack. It compresses down nice.

Customer care didn't answer your question so I will...||Using the Medium sized Alps Cyclone compression sack I get it down to 7"x16". ||For what it's worth... The Alps Cyclone series are the best compression sacks available because unlike most, they compress in 2 directions.
