Wanted to get lighter weight bag for bike touring. This will work well. I'm 5'12" and weight 225 lbs. Bag fits well room to move.
Thanks Sierra Designs! Ed on Mar 19th 2018
I bought this bag because I desperately needed a sleeping bag that was light enough and compact enough to take backpacking. The bag is lightweight, easy to fit into the stuff sack, and the stuff sack fits into the sleeping bag compartment of my 65 L pack with room to spare. I'm 5'8", 130 lbs, and the sleeping bag fits me well. I have enough extra room to stuff gear in if I want to make it warmer, but not so much room that I have cold spots.
I used it this past weekend, hammock camping. It got down to the lower 40s, upper 30s, and the 30% chance of rain meant that it of course rained cats and dogs all night. I slept in this bag on top of a Thermarest Z-rest to keep the down from compressing against the hammock and leaving my back cold. I was warm all night. Around 10 PM, one of my friends arrived to the campsite, and moved the log half my rainfly was tied to, dumping a load of icy cold rainwater on me and my sleeping bag. The fabric of the bag resisted the water very well, and the bag didn't soak up much, if any, and stayed just as warm as it had before.
Two things that I wasn't 100% thrilled with: I like the comforter, and think it would be great for using the bag in warmer weather, but I sort of wish that the drawstring went all the way around the face opening as it does in most bags. If you move around a lot while you sleep and it's very cold, you will need to re-tuck the comforter around your face. This is a very minor complaint for me, but it might be more of a deal breaker for some people. The other thing is that I assumed both the zippers went all the way down to the foot box, allowing you to stick both feet out if you get hot. Only the left zipper goes all the way down. Again, very very minor complaint that might bother other people more.
I'm really pleased with this bag, and at the sale price, this might be the best gear purchase I've ever made. I feel confident that the temp rating is accurate, and that with a fleece liner I could easily use it to 20 degrees. A wonderful opportunity to get a quality down sleeping bag at a great price.

I have been told I do way more research than the avg. guy. It’s true! I read all the reviews and ask all the questions- from REI, forums to other campers/ hikers, I am asking what they are using and how happy they are? After an extended time I decided on the SD Zissou bag. This has a lot of the same specs as bags 2-3Xs the cost. It’s light and can compact easily with a compression sack. I have recommended it to other hikers and the boys in my Scout troop prior to the Philmont trek. TIP- if the person is over 5-10” go with the tall. Scout Dad on Dec 24th 2017
I needed a bag that was under 3lbs for some high adventure hiking. The REI guys spoke highly of the brand but I had to order direct. This price point was a big seller as I did not want to spend a lot- but needed to address hiking bullet points. Weight-Space-Temp-Cost

Used it for the first time during a short backpacking trip north of Yosemite. Was at elevations above 9,000 ft and overnight temps dropped down between 30-40F. The design made it easy to get in and out of, I was never cold, and the breathability made it so I was as comfortable as I've ever been in a sleeping bag. The lightweight build and the packed down size were just icing on the cake. I'd recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for a great bag for backpacking. Jose on Oct 2nd 2017
This bag has everything you could want in a sleeping bag. First, it is light and takes up minimum space in my pack. Second, I really enjoy the style of this bag. I like how I can unzip it and the blanket feature will keep me plenty warm. Great sleeping bag Unknown on Aug 4th 2017
I had been using a Sierra Designs 30° mummy for six years. It was light and compact, but was cramped, had a short zipper so I couldn't open the bag in warmer weather, and of course had very little insulation, which led to cold spots where the down migrated from.
I bought this bag one year ago and I like it so much better! Here are the reasons:
Features: I love the double zipper, one on each side near your head. You can unzip them and it is very much like having a blanket to pull up under your chin. This also allows for more room.
Weight: It weighs more than my old bag, but it is much less expensive and is it really worth the extra bucks to save a few ounces? Not to me. I'd rather save weight other ways.
Warmth: I like being able to regulate my temperature with the dual zippers when it's warm. In the middle of the night when it's colder it still zips up nice and snug. I'm 5'11, 165# and the regular is a good fit. Plenty warm for nights in to the 20s. I mean, you're going to have a jacket and hat and such you can wear if it gets cold.
Price: for all the above perks, the price is fabulous. It's less expensive due to the 700 fill, but that only adds a few ounces for many dollars saved. Well worth it for me. Dan on Jan 24th 2017
