Marmot 40°Trailblazer Synthetic Sleeping Bag
Perfect size for kids under 12.
Kept my daughter warm and comfortable during a weekend camping trip. Lowest temperature outside was 42-45 degrees in the evening. It's lightweight and easily rolls up to a small, compact size. My 10 year old was able to roll this up herself.

Had to return it. The width was not listed in the specs and the bag was very narrow. Should be re-categorized as a youth bag.

I was not really impressed with this product. I was looking for a lightweight backpacking sleeping bag that I could use for summer use. The bag is indeed lightweight as advertised. No issue there. Bag is rated at 40-degrees F. Bag will keep one warm at or near 40F, but you will need to be wearing poly-propylene and fleece layers and probably need a hood. I normally sleep pretty warm. The sleeping bag is also pretty narrow at the shoulders. I selected the bag because it was inexpensive ([$]), lightweight (2.5lbs) and not as restrictive at the feet as most lightweight bags (mummy bags). If you don't mind layering up or expect to be sleeping at 50F or warmer and are small at the shoulders this might be a good bag for you. Another pro - I got the bag wet. It seeemed to dry out pretty quickly.

My winter bag will also be by Marmot!
It's light weight makes it ideal for backpacking and I have also used it for front-country (car) camping. The locking zipper keeps the bag closed. The straps on the storage bag make it easy to secure to my backpack. I have used this bag at least two nights a week since I purchased it.

Not For The Back Country
I do have to say I loved this sleeping bag until my 2 week summer adventure in Northern California & Oregon. Backpacking and camping along the coast, Redwoods National Park, Crater Lake, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite. I am not a minimalist but anywhere I can save some weight I will. Of course with any backcountry trip you have to prepare yourself for dangerously cold weather, soaring hot temps, and rain. But what I wasn't expecting was the snow.We had to deal with snow and low temps. the bag can't handle snow or temps below 40. Which of course the rating for this bag is right and should only be used for mild temps. My sleeping bag did get wet and it didn't bother me but I can't tell you if it dried quickly because we were always on the go. It was so light and comfy that I thought I could get away with using this sleeping bag for the trip instead of my down mummy but I was wrong based on the type of trip. What I love: The bag is roomy but not too much and is tapered at the feet to provide the mummy feel without the hood. You can comfortably move around in the bag while you sleep. The bag packs down small. I can fit this sleeping bag anywhere. I love that. I do love the bag but will only recommend it for mild temps.

The small size in the bag and unlike downs, you can actually put it in the washer is what makes this sleeping bag so useful.
