I was looking forward to taking this bag on a backpacking trip, but ended up having two restless nights of sleep. Im really not sure why BA did this, but the hood of the bag sticks out above the top of the pad. So, my head hung off the pad in a very uncomfortable way. If I added a small camp pillow, it took up so much space in the small hood that I couldn't cinch it around my head. If I scooted down in the bag and flipped the pillow pocket down, the hood opening was up on top of my head! Needless to say, I returned it and purchased a Marmot bag, which is so nice.
