Good sleeping bag. Price is the biggest factor in regard to expectation of performance. A $1000 bag is going to bring expectations that are different. This review considers the discount coupon (email subscription/coupon) and low price.
The exterior fabric is diamond rip stop nylon, very heavy duty material in regard to wear and abrasion. The interior fabric is a very fine soft nylon. The bag's sizing is consistent with a bag for an adult male. I am 5' 11" 190 # and the fit felt just right full clothed, with some room to spare though not much. Temperature rating; 20 degrees in my happy zone, so anytime spring or fall here in Northern WI.

Overall, this is a serviceable sleeping bag. It's comfortable and warm, which are really the main things for me, but it is a bit bulky and heavier than I expected.
Despite the tag boasting of a special seam that keeps the material from getting snagged in the zipper, that seam is only on ONE side of the zipper. The other side snags about every 8-12 inches, so you need to backtrack, pull the fabric out, try to keep it out of the way of the zipper, then it inevitably snags again. It's a pain, but not one that is a dealbreaker for me, but I can't recommend the bag to those who might get frustrated too easily.
Best Uses: 3 Season Camping, Car Camping
Cons: Heavy / Bulky, Packs Too Large, Zipper Snags Easily

Bag is nice and warm, large enough to fit a big person, I am 6' tall and 275 and it fits me well. The only problem I have is the pack size, you will need to get a different stuff sack to get it small enough for backpacking.

I did not realize that I was going to be so bulky and heavy so I returned it for a smaller one-I just have to hope that it does not get that cold. It looks like a great bag but would only want to use it for car camping.
