Him 35 or VE 25?

My winter bag is a 6'6" Western Mountaineering Kodiak. I also sleep on a 25" pad. Would the Him 35 be big enough for two guys over 6' tall (long sleeping bags) and a couple of dogs, or would the VE-25 be a better solution?

You would have enough room if it wasn't for the dogs. Though not much, they also need their space. The VE 25 would give you an extra eighteen square feet of floor space, four season capability, & a few ounces lighter in weight.

The Him 35 and VE 25 will both give you enough room. It seems to me you will camping in cold conditions, so I'd go with the VE 25 have less space to heat. The duel vestibules will give you some more storage room in the VE as well.
