Finally a bag I fit into comfortably!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have been a quilt person for the last year of my camping life for two reasons 1. I’m a side sleeper 2. I’m on the bigger side (5’10 & 250lbs). This has led me to some chilly nights where I was wishing my backside was covered and where I’ve envied my friends with their sleeping bag hoods. When I hammock camp this is not a problem with my top/bottom quilt setup but when I ground dwell I toss and turn that quilt right off of my body. So far I’ve only gotten to take a nap in my house but rolling around has been little to no issue even with my added knee pillow. I’d say initial impression - I’m going to be one VERY happy camper. But I’ll update if that changes on my upcoming trip.
