Perfect for the 5 year old
This was absolutely the bag to go with. I considered just going ahead and buying my son a full size bag so that I don't have to buy another one down the road but this was a great price point and the fact that he can use this for many years (5 ft 4 in) makes me think I made the right decision. We took this bag on a three day camping trip in southern Utah and my son loved it and slept great. The weather started around 50 at night and then dropped to 30 and the kid slept great all night. My only complaint would be the built in compression storage sack could shrink the bag down even more.
