I had a summer bag and a winter bag, now I use this one for everything. I am a warm sleeper, so you my differ, but at the rated 27 degrees I was fine in just light underwear. I'm 5'-8 and 179 pounds and this bag seems to have plenty of room for my elbows and to roll over in. The regular length might be a bit long for me, but I have always put my clothing in the foot and a shorter bag wouldn't save much weigh. The zipper works well all the time if I take the necessary care with it. The zipper tab glows in the dark more brightly than I would have ever guessed. I like the features of extra water resistance on the ends and the synthetic pads. Before purchasing it I thought those might just be gimmicks, but now I think they add a real value to the bag. Most of all I like the weight. It does come in at just an ounce or so over two pounds in the stuff sack. Comes with a storage sack. The stuff sack could be smaller, but I just compress it in the bottom of my pack with all the other junk I carry. I have been backpacking and climbing for more decades than I care to remember and this is certainly the highest quality bag I have ever used. I did quite a bit of research before I purchased it using the weight vs rating vs price vs fill power vs ranking in reviews and this is what I choose and I'm a happy camper.

Quick sizing question- I'm 5'11" and weigh about 140 pounds, but won't have a chance to check sizing at a physical retailer before I order the bag. Would I be fine in the regular size or should I get the long? I have a hard time in sleeping bags that feel tight so I wasn't sure which way to go with the 3S.
Thanks!

Hey Maks,

If you tend to have a tough time with snug sleeping bags, I'd recommend sizing up to the Long, especially if you don't mind the extra two ounces of weight. You'd certainly fit in the Regular, but the Long will give you an extra few inches of breathing room.

Hope this information helps!

Would it be a terrible idea to get the Long even though I'm under 6' tall? I like the idea of keeping my puffy down at the bottom to have a warm jacket to put on in the morning

So long as you are filling that dead airspace of the long it should work just as effectively as the shorter lengths and I see no issue with going with that longer length.

What Wayne said. If you get the long and DON'T fill that space, your feet will get colder more easily. So you're sort of committing yourself to stuffing something in the footbox every time you use the bag, but as long as you're ok with that, go for it.

I am 6'1" and I've tried out the regular in a North Face store. It fits me but I'm thinking it might be a little snug overall. Should I bump up to the long?

I would definitely choose a long for you. Like you said yourself, you can fit into a regular but better to have that extra 5-6 inches of space in the long than risk discomfort with a too small bag in the regular.

Slup,

In addition to you being 6'1'' and getting the extra room for "comfort," one of the additional benefits is room at the bottom of your bag to either put your liners from your boots or additional layers at the bottom of your sleeping bag if you find that you're feet get cold or if you want to put on warm layers in the morning.
