    • What is the length of the regular and long?
    • Thanks for the question. The regular length is 6', and the long is 6'6". I'll make sure this info gets added to the product description.

    • Hello,

      I love the look of this bag but I'm having trouble deciding which size is needed. I am exactly 5'6 which is the size small bag. But would this be big enough? Would a 6'0 be more comfortable? Or would the 5'6 bag be roomy enough? I'm athletic build.

      Many Thanks
    • Thanks for the question. It would most likely come down to preference in your case. The bags are sized so that someone exactly 5'6" will fit in the 5'6" bags, so you could make do with the short, but most people seem to go with the 6' bag when buying online.

    • Does this sleeping bag have a full Zip.
      What determines which side the Zip? I am right handed

    • Thank you for the question. The zipper goes down to the ankle, but it does not fully unzip around the bottom of the bag. It is considered a full length zipper though. Right or left zip is determined while laying on your back in the bag. Most right handed folks choose a left zip bag. This allows you to reach across your body to use the full motion of your right arm to unzip. Thanks!

Great bag but heavier than advertised Review by Henriette B

Got this bag some time ago and have now taken it on a number of spring glacier missions. Excellent bag, works very well. Only big bugbear is the fact that my bag was over 100g heavier than advertised on Western Mountaineering's website. Uncool!

Sleeping like a baby Review by Samson

Fits perfect in my tarptent. hikers have been complaining about the sub-freezing weather since I hiked to Springer Febuary 24 to begin my A.T. 2013 hike to Maine. Seems everyone I started with dropped off, many complaining they were too cold at night. I seem to have stayed amazingly warm and comfortable. Even spent a Zero day in my Tarptent in my sleeping bag during the Big snow. I would recommend the silk liner to go with it.

Thanks for another great product

Samson. 2013 Thu-hiker
