Coleman River Gorge 20°F Sleeping Bag
Decent bag for my young boy scout
My son used it in his first campout last weekend and the overnight low was 40. He was cold, but it was tolerable. Will need to add a liner to make it warmer for colder nights. Was a soft bag though and lightweight. Good value for the price.

This product is very small.
Went in to Dick's, where the prices are usually higher than other stores, but thought I had come upon a steal of a deal. I found this sleeping bag for about $45, I was elated, I even bought two. I then came back to reality when I got inside my bag. It is longer than some, but the width was pathetic. I could not get comfortable at all in this bag. I finally zipped the two together and slept together with my 10 year old son, who tosses and turns all night. The store did not have any on display and I guess I just didn't pay any attention to the width because it kept going on about the length. Oh well, chalk another one up to "buyer beware".

For short people only
I am a medium to short person in height - 5' 6". The bag only covered my chest(top came up to my chin) and my feet were at the bottom of the bag. Who is Coleman fooling by saying it fits someone over 6ft. You will have to buy a cover or ditty bag for storage. The bag only comes with strings to keep it rolled up.
Other than these 2 items its an ok bag.

Good for shorter people.. Not for anyone over 5' 10"
Very short bag due to cut out for the "Scoop". Got it home and tried it out only to find that the top of the bag does not even come up to my shoulder. Even laying on my side sort of curled up its still very short. No way I could lay on my back without having my upper torso and shoulders out of the bag.
Probably a good value for the shorter people out there

Good Buy - My Son Loves It
This is a cozy, quality bag with good padding and shape. My 13 year old son loves it for sleepovers, Church lock-ins and uses it on his bed for his bedspread too.
It's not so big that I cannot wash it in my home washing machine which is good because its gets a lot of use.
It is rated for very cold weather but we haven't used it outdoors yet.
I got it on sale at a great price.
Only drawback is the zipper is tricky and not good for kids to try to get if it accidentally gets unzipped all the way. "Dad" had to get it done for us. Otherwise we would have given this 5 stars.

I nabbed this sleeping bag on sale. Based on having priced other sleeping bags in other stores, this was a great value, especially for the 20 degree rating.

The bag was listed as 81 inches, yet the actual size and design made it shorter than a 72 inch bag.

Good bag just don't be too tall
The bag worked well in tent with temperature outside about 30 degrees. The only caution is make sure you are not too tall. I am 6'1" and I could not get the bag above my shoulders. It worked out okay but a little uncomfortable so what ever bag you get make sure it has enough height and width for you.

Exactly what I was looking for!
This sleeping bag was perfect for what I was looking for. The material is very comfortable and it's nonsnag which is great. Its increadibly warm! Very good quality! We camped at the beginning of October and it was perfect (even warm one night). No other blankets used either...just the sleeping bag.

Perfect for overnights
First night my son used this sleeping bag was tent camping on a 30 degree night. Was warm all night long and the lining was comfortable. Easy to roll up and lightweight to carry to the campsite, but is too bulky if you are hiking. I will get the same for myself to replace a 5 year old 30 degree bag that weighs more and not as roomy.
