Warm, fluffy sleeping bag!
I used this sleeping bag for two nights on Assataeague Island in late April. It was freezing at night (outside the tent I was wearing a wool t-shirt, under armor base layer, fleece jacket, very light down jacket, and a rain shell... and still had to sit around a fire), but I was toasty in this sleeping bag. The down is super fluffy, but it packs down pretty small in a compression stuff sack for backpacking. The surface of the bag near the tent wall got wet during the night due to condensation, but I wiped it off with my camp towel and it seemed to dry pretty quickly.
I found it hard to zip up the bag quickly without snagging in several places. It wasn't hard to un-snag, just annoying, especially when it's cold and you want to zip up fast! It comes with a mesh storage bag and a stuff sack (the stuff sack is on the inside of the sleeping bag near where you put your feet--I didn't even notice it until I was airing out the sleeping bag when I got home from my trip). This is my first backpacking sleeping bag, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I would recommend it!
Heavenly Warmth is RIGHT!
The first time I used my Sierra Designs Trail Angel was in the NC Appalachians on a cold, snowy night, around 20 degrees. I was worried that it wouldn't be enough for me because I am rather small and tend to be very cold most of the time. This sleeping bag was plenty warm, even without using a liner. I was thoroughly impressed at my comfort level all night long. The bonus was that there are two straps on the bottom side of the sleeping bag that wrap around my sleeping pad to keep it from slipping around throughout the night. I also had my small dog (7.5 lbs) with me that night. I put him in a sweatshirt before dozing off to sleep and he woke up with nothing on in the morning. I guess he stayed warm too! Another cool feature is that the zipper is compatible with my boyfriend's sleeping bag so we were able to zip them together to create one big luxurious bed!
I wish it would pack a little smaller, but I'll probably just buy a compression bag for that. It's fluffy but very lightweight. I bought it on sale so for the price, it was totally worth it. Can't wait to do more cold weather camping!
is the user max height really fixed? i am...
is the user max height really fixed? i am 5'9" and i would really prefer a woman's bag!
I think this bag should work for slightly taller people. I'm 5'8 and have a +40 Sierra Designs bag that I got years ago. It's super-girly: purple with star print lining, so it must be for women. And all the Sierra Designs women's bags seem to have a "max 5'6" rating, yet my other bag works great for me. I've never thought that it seemed too short.

Just got this bag and I've been sleeping in it in my bed for the past 4 nights. It is very warm and cozy, very puffy but SO light. It stuffs down super small but does not come with a small stuff sack, just a larger bag. Great purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone! Looking forward to camping for real with it.
