Poor quality control.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sergio from Flourtown, PA on Tuesday, November 9, 2010
When I unpacked the bag it seemed like a nice product. The stuff sack is great and allows for vertical and horizontal adjustments. The first night, I tried closing the hood. It would not close. No matter how hard I pulled on the cord, it would not adjust. Later, in daylight, I noticed the wonderful Chinese labor/quality control had sown the draw cord to the bag. I removed a couple of stitches and then the hood closed. It is still not a good system. I have 3 other mummy bags (2 Eurekas and a Cabela's). All three work great and adjust much easier.
The zipper snags so easily I could not give this bag to my 12 year old Boy Scout son because I knew he would have problems so I will keep the bag for myself.
Mountainsmith needs to improve their quality control!
On the positive side, the bag keeps you warm and is lightweight but it is small. I'm 5'10" and my feet touch the bottom. I would not recommend it for someone taller.
