Great value, large & roomy for women but warm

The specs on this will show you exactly what you're getting into with bulkiness and weight. You won't find a better value anywhere though.

I've used this on about -5 F nights and was toasty warm in my 3-season tent with a lightweight baselayer as my PJs. It doesn't have a big puffy draft collar like some bags, but it does have a drawstring to cinch it around your face.

An XL compression sack reduces the size a bit. It's perfect for camping. You can definitely backpack with it if you can't afford a smaller 0 degree bag. I'm a minimalist backpacker but I also have a minimal gear budget so sometimes I just have to deal with larger and heavier gear. I shoved the bag into a 60 L pack with all my other stuff, including a 4 lb tent, 4 days of food, fuel, stove, etc. It was heavy but winter backpacking is always heavy unless you can buy the top gear.

I usually buy women-specific sleeping bags (I'm 5'5", 145 lbs) but didn't have a choice when looking for an affordable 0 degree bag. This one is so big and roomy that I can fit my summer bag (2009 EMS Velocity 35 F women's) inside of it with room to spare. This means I now have a setup that I can use way below zero!

I haven't had any problems with the zippers, they snag about as often as my other bags (not infrequently if you don't use care).
