I bought the short bag that's 72"L. I did consider taking the hood off but changed my mind when I used it the first time in 20 degree weather. I like the hood there and I kind of wrap it around my head creating a tunnel to breath through. But the zipper could go with a seam ripper but only for weight savings, it really doesn't bother me.
