    runs a little small

    Just a note for prospective purchasers that the bag does run a little small.

    I picked up one of these sleeping bags thinking it might make a decent PeaPod imitation.

    Unfortunately, it's way to snug for my comfort.

    It's a nice sleeping bag though. Huge loft!

    Peace,
    David

    I Agree

    I also bought one and found it too small to use. I'm 5'10'' and even though specs say it will fit up to 6', it's too short for me and will not zip shut over my shoulders. It is a beautiful bag, but I'm sending it back unless someone offers me $200.00 for it and agrees to pay shipping.

    I could barely zip mine, and getting it unzipped afterward was really difficult.

    I'll be returning mine.

    I'm 5'6, 170 pounds. I have fairly wide shoulders though.

    The width was more an issue for me than the length.

    I'm 5'10" and 210lbs. with a 46" chest, measured under my arms. Manufacturer's specs say shoulder portion of bag will expand to fit 60", but I couldn't get my shoulders in even when it was fully expanded.
    I guess it all depends on how big your chest is?
