Don't settle for less than cozy.
While hearing the word "homestead" might elicit memories of your fifth grade history unit on the Gold Rush Pioneers of The West, The North Face Homestead Twin Sleeping Bag is above and beyond the hay-stuffed blankets of the early 1800s. Constructed with durable exterior, this twin-sized sleeping bag is designed with a rectangular shape that's akin to your favorite down comforter at home while the full-length zipper enables you to zip together two Homestead Twins for a queen-size bag. Not to mention, the Heatseeker Eco synthetic insulation keeps you warm down to 20F, even when wet—so should your thatched roof leak suddenly, you'll be snug as a bug in a rug. An internal cell-phone pocket is equipped with see-through mesh that enables you to hit snooze before the alarm even destroys your eardrums and a shorter side zipper permits you to fold the bag over for optimal body temperature regulation or a more homey feel.

Perfect for Car Camping!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for my sister as a gift and she loves it. Here's her review: "This bag hooked me with its adorable print, but it's an all-around winner for car-camping and staying cozy. Very well-designed and I love that the stuff sack has backpack-style straps. I can't wait to use it on my early-fall camping adventures! "
Snuggle for the Win

Best car-sleeping bag ever! When you and your partner are freezing cold in separate sleeping bags, this thing is the answer to keep you warmer and closer to your significant other. I like the synthetic insulation too, because sometimes it actually gets too hot (when the sun is hitting your tent in the mornings, condensation) so having the ability to dry out quickly is key.
Comfy and warm, but needs socks
My ski lease doesn't provide bedding, but we're allowed to keep our gear including storage bins there. This sleeping bag has served me well for that purpose. It's very comfortable and I'd call it a warmer Marmot Yurt (only went to 40*F).
I would imagine that it would work well enough for car camping with enough room to keep the pad in with you, too. The included stuff sack has backpack straps and is pretty novel. It's still a large mass, so I don't think many would use this for backpacking.
The only negative I can think of is that the nylon gets cold where you aren't. So when I first used it in a really really cold room, I woke up when I moved around and hit a cold corner. So that's where the "needs socks" line is about.
Can you unzip all the way on the right and bottom to make it flat so that I can use it as a blank? Also, how big is it compare to the north fact dolomite 20 sleeping bag?
