I have been searching forever for a warm bag for a small frame like mine that could also stuff down to nothing. I love the fabric and that it fluffs right back up after being compressed down really tight.

I've used this bag now for several camping trips with chilly nights as low as 30 degrees and very damp. I needed a liner and warm clothing but stayed warm. The drawstrings operate easily. It seems well made and is very light weight.

I bought this bag for my daughter to do a Trek at Philmont last summer with her Venture Crew. She loved it. Paired with a NeoAir ground pad, she had the best, lightest and warmest sleep combo of all the girls on the Trek.
Packs small, super lightweight.
Bought the male equivalent for my son to go this summer.

Perfect size for me with wiggle room (I'm only 5'2" and 94lbs), but I can see how this sleeping bag may be to short/snug for a bigger person. I really like it. And it was a pretty good deal compared to a chain/retail mountain sports shop.

After shopping around online for several days I chose this sleeping bag for its weight, down fill power, and temperature rating. I knew I wanted a minimum 600 fill power and this bag met my requirements. Delivery was fast. The sleeping bag came in a larger storage bag, but came with a smaller stuff sack. I used the stuff sack for my backpacking trip but I'm sure this bag would have compressed even smaller with a proper compression sack.
Temperatures dropped to the 30's, and the wind chill was even lower. There was a even a bit of snow and ice on the ground. Overall I stayed toasty warm in my 20F rated sleeping bag (and 3-season tent), but I was still wearing a hat and mittens and wool socks just in case. I actually got a bit too warm. Interestingly, my companion who had a well known outdoor store branded synthetic bag rated down to 20F (same as mine) had a cold night and had to warm up by moving over and leaning up next to my bag!
I did have to stuff a few clothing items at my feet to fill in the extra space in the footbox. I'm 5'4" and the bag is supposed to fit up to 5'6". There was actually almost a foot of extra length past my feet. I'm sure my feet would have been much colder if I hadn't filled the space. Not a big deal - this way my clothing for the next day are pre-warmed in the morning. :)
I rate this bag very highly. I am very pleased with the quality of the fabric - it is soft and quiet so not too much rustling noise when turning. Down is the best and lightest insulator, as well as the most compressible fill for sleeping bags. This Marmot Flathead Mummy sleeping bag for women is a great choice for casual camping and adventure backpacking. Sierra Trading Post always delivers when it comes to great pricing and quality products. You can't go wrong with this bag. No complaints here; five stars across the board.
They will not zip together.|In order to be able to zip two mummy bags together you need one bag to be a right rip and the other to be a left zip. Currently we do not have any bags available in both zips. So at this time we have no bags that can be zipped together.

“This bag length is listed at 79", which is as long or longer than most other manufacturers' women's long bags (bags designed for women as tall as 5'10"). Is this measurement correct? It doesn't sync with the "fits to 5'6" advice in the specs.”

The 79" is the exterior length of the bag laying flat. The 13' allows for the thickness of the insulation at the top and bottom of the bag, and for a little head and foot room. Marmot regular women's bags are designed for women up to 5' 6".
