Big Agnes King Solomon bag

I was concerned since I'm 73" tall that I wouldn't fit. It's OK, but just barely. I think 73" is the maximum height for this bag. Two 72" long, 20" wide rectangular pads are needed to slip into the bag. I may have an old one, there's no way to couple the pads, as they have separate sleeves. The sleeves do have a slight gap, but it's not an issue. Anyway the bag is great for my wife and I. It was warm down to 20 degrees F. It's a good 15 F bag for backpacking since it only weighs 42 ounces per person, and you get to sleep with your wife.

Apart from the sturdiness and affordability the factor of comfort does play a big role in choosing a sleeping bag. When you are buying a sleeping bag and want it to be quite comfortable, you tend to opt for the expensive ones. One thing you should always remember is that, if something is expensive that does not mean it is good or will be able to fulfill all you requirements.
