Great bags, perfect weight
These bags do zip together and I think they were the perfect weight...but we were not backpacking. They are 3 lbs 10 oz.

i am 6'2" 240lbs i dont care about the weight of the bag but i do need one that is reasonably priced and big enough for me is this the right one for me.
Judging by your height/weight, a rectangular bag is definitely up your alley in the way of comfort. This is a good price for a 20 degree North Face bag, so it all depends on when you'll be using it.
I would like to have two bags, zipped...
I would like to have two bags, zipped together for van camping. One should have a right hand zipper and one a left hand zipper, correct? I was looking at this bag but it only comes with right hand zipper. What do you suggest? Mixing this bag with another?
One bag will be on top of the other, rather than each bag side to side. the right zipper on the top will become a left on the bottom. We have two identical bags and zip together top and bottom constantly for both van and tent camping. You just need to ascertain that your bag opens all the way flat.
Is the zipper on the new model compatable...
Is the zipper on the new model compatable with the zipper on the 2008 model? I'm trying to make one big sleeping bag with the two, let me know..Thanks
Good Bag. Packs Small. Estimated 5-10 pounds.
I first used this bag Halloween of 2009 in Arches National Park. I'm not sure what the temperature was, but it was definitely below freezing. I could not get warm in this sleeping bag. However, it might've gotten below 20 degrees and the alchohol probably didn't help either.
I just recently used this bag in Yosemite this first week of August 2010. Because it was summer, I thought it wouldn't get that cold. I was wrong. Down in the valley it was warm, but at the higher elevation (We stayed at Crane Flat) it was cold at night. I shared the sleeping with my fiance and we were never cold. Others who were also sharing sleeping bags complained about the cold.
The bag that it comes with is really small and I was concerned about being able to get it back in there without having to wrestle with it. I had no such problems. Roll it tight and it'll squeeze in there.
I would recommend this sleeping bag. It packs small and it doesn't seem that heavy (We were car camping). I'll probably buy another one to replace my fiance's bulky sleeping bag we bought at Walmart.
Giving it 4 stars because of my first experience with it.

Are the weights for this bag correct? I've seen it listed as [Regular] 3lb 10oz (1640g); [Long] 3lb 14oz (1770g) elsewhere.
Our weights are posted wrong, good catch!
*Weight: [Reg] 3lb 10oz (1640g); [Long] 3lb 14oz (1770g)
These are the correct weights, our tech specs will be updated soon.
nice but pretty heavy
I actually returned this. I had bought 2 to zip together and although the website gives the weight/dimensions, somehow when i actually saw/hefted them i thought 'ohmygoodness too heavy' . i intend to use them on bicycle tours (carrying everything.) These would be great for car camping, but too big/heavy for backpacking or self contained bike touring. But that said, they look warm and well constructed! I ended up buying down bags that are waaaay more expensive and don't quite look as warm.
