Too warm!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hiker from Niagara Falls, NY on Monday, August 13, 2012
I'm used to my LLBean Flannel lined bag and have never owned a mummy bag before. After 3 trips with this bag, I wish I had bought a different one. First, it's too bulky, as it barely fits in my backpack. Second, it's extremely warm. I was in 50 degree nighttime weather and it was too hot to sleep inside the bag. I know it is rated at 20 degrees, but I had no idea it would be too hot to use during the summer months. Third, I find it hard to sleep inside and move around, as the bag gets all twisted. I wish the zipper was on the right side.
It is well made and will last for many years, seems very durable.
It is a nice color and if you need something for cold weather car camping, then this will work. I don't think this is the best bag for backpacking, due to its bulkiness.
