I love our new cozy double sleeping bag. My boyfriend and I love camping, but two sleeping bags? That's lame. So we e-shopped really hard and found this one. We just went up to Canada and hit up early-spring campsites (it's Early April) and I am really glad we got this.

PROS: It's very good quality (it's northface after all) and compared to other ones in it's price range I was really happy with it's make, stitching and utility. For it's size, it's much lighter than comparable bags (6 pounds) and it's not that sticky/fuzzy/too-much friction-can't-move material on the inside like some sleeping bags are (which I hate!). It's smooth nylon fabric throughout, double zippers on both sides with contrasting green bungee cords and a pouch for carrying. There is AMPLE room for two people. The two of us aren't very big but we got the long version anyways. We could probably fit another person in there and there'd still be room to move around. We could completely surround and zip ourselves into the sleeping bag, which, when cold, is awesome.

CONS: It was cold in Canada. Maybe a little too cold for reasonable camping, but we wanted to rough it. Though it says 20 degrees fahrenheit, I don't think you could use this in actual 20 deg weather and not freeze a bit. It was around 28-35 deg lows during our trip and I was wearing sweatpants and a long sleeve (albeit thin-ish) shirt inside the sleeping bag and I was a little too cold for comfort. Maybe if you wore a jacket and were in the bag it'd be okay, but who wants to sleep in their coat? I think this is a max 30 deg. sleeping bag. Also, for the life of us, we can't find the "inside pocket for storing valuables". I don't think it exists. But it's not really a big deal.
