    You are right about the frogsac not being very wearable in an active setting. Basically, once you get everything set up, and you just want to sit and eat, the frog sac is wearable. too much movement and the toggles will come apart. it is better to understand this as a wearable blanket than a jacket/sleep bag.

    However, the frogsac is longer for us folks who are 6'5, cheaper for those who are poor. I am not sure what the NS temp rating is as a stand alone bag but i assume it is lower than 40 deg?

    NS is good somewhere in the 30s for most folks...some can take it into the 20s.

    I did play around with the PeaPod today, wearing it around the house a bit. I can see where it could be usable for quiet lounging, eating, reading, etc. prior to going to bed. can pretty easily keep one arm out through the hook & loop for casual type activity. While sitting, you can have both arms out, but still pull it around you. Is also easy to pull the excess up to allow walking about. It is so big that when you are sitting down it ends up like you are in a giant pillow. I think I like this purchase!

    Will still be getting a NS or possibly the RMS - gotta help keep all these great companies in business. :-)

    Anyone know how long the Introductory Price will be available on the RMS?

    This is getting addictive.

    Dang, and I just broke down and paid full price for a PeaPod! At those prices, I might have got a Snugfit! Oh well, at least I like the PeaPod!

    I was too early. I just received my snugfit at regular price on Monday! The only difference I see, is mine is green on both sides, not silver inside. And my netting is black instead of white.

    I got the silver w/ white netting. I don't really care about the silver but the black netting would be nice.
