    Bought the large/long version to replace bulky rectang-bag on Alaska Caribou hunt. Fly-ins in small bush planes with limited space - while goose down bags are smaller and lighter, Alaska is wet - so I wanted a synthetic.

    Lack of bottom insulation make a relatively small package with the right compression sack. No extra bag for the pad - rolled it inside the bag. Nice package.

    Outfitter provided cots with mesh fabric - there was a slight draft along the edges of the pad the first night. I draped one of the small emergency blankets over the cot, added a doubled up "airline" fleece blanket over the emergency blanket and found the bag very comfortable for the remainder of the trip.

    At 6'0", 215 lbs, I was able to move around inside the XL bag and sleep in different positions even though the bag must stay oriented top and bottom.

    We filled our tags, called the pilots to come get us and broke camp, packing everything up except one of the two 6-man tents. But the weather turned bad and all 4 in our party wound up sleeping on the ground in one of the 6-man tents for the next 2 days. The pad is pretty thin, so sleeping on the rocky ground required some adjustments to avoid larger stones, but it was very warm with no air circlulation from beneath - and I was the only member in our group that wasn't rolling or sliding off their pad.

    This is the best bag I can imagine for my use. I guess it's probably too big for a backpacking bag - but if you're stranded in the tundra - this bag will keep you warm in high winds and cold temps. I'll use on my next trip. This equipment performed very well - inspite of one small issue with the zipper hanging up.

    Wind: None to 60+ max
    Temp: Min 18 to Max 40 (F) at night
    Sleep clothing: Wool wader socks, fleece wader pants, loose synthetic underwear top, lightweight fleece vest, thin smart wool skull cap.

    Lack of insulation in back requires that air mattress or pad be used in sleeve for warmth.
    Air mattress in sleeve restricts you to sleeping on back only. Have to roll off pad if you want to sleep on your side.
    If you rotate in bag to sleep on side, you can't use hood.
    Mattress in sleeve keeps the hood from closing snugly around head.
    Mattress in sleeve makes for a "bell shape curve" with colder spots at the perimeter of the mattress. You can't tuck in the dead air spaces for warmth.

    Great bag and pad. Plenty of room and perfect length. Only problem is it does not roll up small enough to go in your back pack.

    I bought the XL for myself, used it for a year, and then bought the regular sized one for my wife. Big enough for me to roll over and be comfortable in a mummy-shaped bag.

    Bought two for my husband and myself, then went camping with the kids and really saw the benefit of the sleeping pad combo when the kids were at the bottom if the tent in the morning. After the trip got two more for the kids. Now, everyone is happy!
