Have slept in many different kinds of sleeping bags over the years; many of them Coleman with fleece lining. They were great. This bag I bought via Amazon a year ago for $40 and have used it 3 times while camping in the Pacific NW forests. My only complaint is that the "tricot knit lining" acts like Velcro when coming into contact with many plant materials, ie moss, small ferns, lichen, etc. Then this debris easily come loose from your clothing and get embedded in this tricot knit lining. Then you have literally hundreds of pieces of scratchy embedded debris that is very very uncomfortable to sleep against. Then what compounds this issues is that each piece of plant material has to be painstakingly plucked, one at a time, and the piece of plant material usually breaks apart requiring multiple plucks to remove. I'd rather sleep in a bag my 9 year old consumed a box of crackers in. It took literally an hour and a half of plucking and couldn't remove all fragments without damaging the liner. Tried to run through the washing machine and that made no improvement in removing this scratchy debris left within the lining. This bag seem adequate in all other areas of design and comfort and would work out great if not used in a forest setting. I'm not sure what the engineers were thinking when using tricot knit lining and they certainly didn't do field tests within the Pacific NW. There may be a reason that Amazon has discounted the bag and sells this same bag for $20. Totally useless to me.
It is GREAT for cold weather, seriously.Here's a tip our trekking guide gave us and it completely changed my experience. This bags work with your own body heat, so when you get into your tent, take your clothes off and snuggle in. The first night on top of Mount Roraima I got inside of it with my cold weather pijamas and two pair of socks and I felt like my feet were going to fall off. Second night, after he told us this, I slept with nothing but my underwear on and at some point I had to take off the blanket because I felt it was getting too warm. I couldn't believe how when I had to go out it was sooo cold, while I was com warm and comfy inside.The only cons is that it is really big and in my case (8 to 11hr walk everyday, for three days up and 2 down) it made it a little hard for me to carry it on my back. I took only the essentials but it still added 2kg of discomfort. Yet, my trekking friends kept complaining about not getting good sleep because of the cold and I still don't regret taking it with me. My guides told me to leave it in the camp because it was too big and heavy, but for me, a pussy when it comes to weather, it was worth it.
After reading all the reviews of "how soft this sleeping bag is", I was super excited! Everyone said it felt like flannel... let me tell you.. that was a flat out lie. It is the WORST fabric for people with dry skin! The sound of my husbands hands across this is like nails on a chalkboard! Just snag after snag after snag! This is NOT flannel like! Dont fall for it. Not only that, when I was testing it out, I kept pulling these little plastic pieces out. Kinda like down feathers that poke through, but plastic hairs! I'll attach a picture. So incredibly uncomfortable.
