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.
- 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.

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
