4out of 5

Pros: Roomy, Durable, Adjustable Hood, Warm, Comfortable

Cons: Heavy / Bulky

Best Uses: Cold Conditions, Backpacking, Car Camping, 4 Season camping

Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational

What Is Your Gear Style: Comfort Driven

Was this a gift?: Yes

I was looking for a bag that would satisfy the following for my 3-yr old:
- Cold weather comfort while not being uncomfortable in the summer
- Kid friendly color scheme
- Also suitable for future backpacking excursions
- Provided some type of design to prevent him from rolling off his pad

This bag satisfied all those requirements. So far he has used in on probably half a dozen occasions with night temps ranging from 49 to 70 degrees. He uses this pad in conjunction with a BA Insulated Air Core, and sleeps very well in it. Even in the summer with night time temps approaching 70 degrees, I just unzipped the lower zipper to allow air circulation into the footbox.

The No-draft collar and zipper tube are fantastic, and I expect to give them a test this October in the Smoky Mountains.

The interior material is a very comfortable and stain resistant cotton/poly blend that is soft to the touch.

My Primary complaint is the overall size of the bag when compressed. It is a bit bulky for backpacking. However, I realize that this is a synthetic bag and I sacrifice pack-ability.

This is still a fantastic bag, and I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a bag for their little camper.
