I bought two of these for a March camp-out in Nebraska and the wind was howling with single digit wind chill, yet the bags were warm. Length should be adequate to about 6'4" by my estimate. However, be aware that the girth of this bag is a bit snug. I wear a 44 inch jacket and can barely cross my ...

Went camping this weekend. Stayed nice and toasty! New England is frequently cold during the nights so we wanted to be sure we didn't get chilly. We had to unzip during the night. Only drawback is that it is large. So if you anticipate this, then you should have no problems. I would gladly sacrifice a little space for ensuring my warmth.

I tried this bag out on my deck, sleeping on a cot, no pad. The temperature was 17 degrees, 5 degrees with the wind chill factor. During the night the 28 mph wind would blow down the neck of the bag, making my upper body cold. I couldn't get the drawstring to draw up tight because I wear a CPAP. So,I retrieved an afghan, stuffed it around my head/neck and covered the bags entry hole. After that, I actually got a little hot and had to come out of my sleeping clothes. Slept great the rest of the night. My wife thought I was crazy. I thought it was the ideal environment to test the bag. If anything goes wrong, I'm only 3 steps from a nice warm house.

Very nice and lofty bag with lots of room. Unfortunately, I was looking for a bag for winter backpacking it's way to big to pack, even using a compression bag. Definitely recommend it for car camping though!
Sleeping bag can be compressed down to the stuff size of 18x 10".

Yes it can be done. My best friend puts it inside his Cabela's Alaskan II backpack and still has ample room for our hunting trips. I use a medium size compression bag and then I put it inside a dry bag and pack with it on the outside and bottom of my pack frame.. It won't fit in a small bag like a "Cat's Meow" and it won't fit nicely under my backpack frame.. It's a little on the bigger side to pack, but it's warmer than my smaller "Cat's Meow" and it's worth the extra size. It still packs under the frame without a concern if you have good two compression straps. I hope this helps.

This is more of a comfort rating and you should always error on the side of caution and if you want a bag for that temp go for the next temp range. Each person is different with regards to how they respond to weather conditions so they cannot pin point it to an exact temperature.||Please refer to our shipping chart regarding international shipping questions:|http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/InternationalShipping.html
