I would believe that length, too. I have the standard size and it fits me (5'10") but doesn't work for my 6'1" friend.
Sports Chalet is a reputable company. We have one here Visalia and I am there weekly. I also have the Kelty Cosmic 20. Great bag for the price and it packs small. 9X9 in a compression sack 9x14 in its stuff sack 2.8lbs. I have the regular and it is a snug fit for me @ 6' 245lbs. But I like a snug fit. It is my first down bag and fit's my seasons well.
"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books."
Should I get the 0 degree down for a four season bag/ TQ ?
With that said, I have used this bag to less than 10 degrees, but I had a DIY full length UQ with 16oz of 900 Fill power down. I was toasty, and actually had to vent a little. I was in a medium weight fleece, light baselayer bottoms, and wool socks.
In my opinion, you can get away with a 20 degree bag in Ohio year round, as long as you have good bottom insulation. You can always add a layer of clothing.
Sorry for the hijack Torch. I have heard good things about the Cosmic, but if you are using it as a TQ only, you may want something hoodless, like this: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/mar...colorFamily=01
That is basically a clone of my aforementioned "Wind River" bag, only the names have been changed to protect Marmot's marketing department.

Hopefully others who've tested this will add comments.
I used my Kelty Cosmic 20 bag this weekend, it packs ok and sleeps wonderful. At 5'9" I found it a little snugg, with a zipper on the side it is a little ruff getting into at first. At 39 degrees I was in my bag in my under close, warm.
