Rated 4 out of 5áby BigJake Nice bag, but maybe not for me I've been a tent camper for years, and just recently decided to get into backpacking. This is my first 'backpacking bag'. I was looking for something that would compress into a fairly small sack, and this bag does well for that. However, I'm a pretty big guy and while the bag is long enough, it's kind of tight. I'm not blaming the manufacturer at all, as I should have tried it out before buying it (and also because it's called the Minimalist, should have suspected it may be snug), but I'm already thinking about looking for something else.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sue Very narrow bag My boys are only 12 and 13. The bag was very narrow and we ended up retuning them. The nice thing about the bag is it is very light weight. August 19, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby NiTeMaRe Make sure you know what you're getting I bought this bag for backpacking due to its light weight. It is rated closer to 48 degrees, so the 40 is misleading. It wasn't too bad at 40 degrees with a liner, though...and having a liner is a good idea anyway. Bag is TIGHT, so tight that I only zip it up to my shoulders, and then my arms are pretty much stuck with no room to move. Awkward sleeping that way. Also the zipper is on the left, which is awkward for a right-handed person like myself. I looked the bag over carefully to make sure it didn't appear to be used, but I found a leaf in the bottom of the bag after I got home and flipped it inside out. Compression sack is very nice, probably worth more than $20 on its own. It went on sale for $10 less shortly after I bought it, PLUS I had a $10 coupon I could have used PLUS free shipping as well! Kind of sorry I didn't wait on this purchase. Knowing what I know now, I may have tried the WIDE or LONG versions of this bag to see if they had more room. Oh, and the material inside the bag is not comfortable on warm nights, like 68 degrees in my house. Feels like the material wants to stick to me so using a liner and unzipping the bag might make more sense. Also getting an SOL Escape Bivy to put the sleeping bag (and hopefully sleeping pad) inside and see how it works in worse conditions. This bag isn't for everyone but it might just work for what I want it for. For now. When I have more money, I'm going to get a decent down sleeping bag for at least twice the cost of this bag.

Rated 2 out of 5áby FamilyCamper Great design- not even remotely warm enough I took this sleeping bag camping in the hills on a warm summer night. Temps at night were not below 50. Despite the bag claiming to be comfortable down to 40, I was FREEZING. I was lucky to have brought extra blankets or else I would not have slept much. I will be returning the bag. The design of the sleeping bag seemed sturdy and we loved the stuff sack. Too bad it isn't useful for warmths unless you are camping in the tropics. June 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby kf4tdv Held up in 39F First mummy type bag ever used. Also, first time hammock camping. Temps dropped to 39F on Little Lost Cove Cliffs, NC 5/13/15. I'm 5'11" 260Lbs and felt too confined when zipping past my shoulder so left it zipped to below armpit. As long as I kept my shoulder covered, I stayed warm. Stupid me forgot about the hood feature, and so my head got cold. My feet were very warm. So with a rating of 40F & the weather being 39F, I think the bag done its part. I also think a sleeping pad would have helped, but I never felt like I was freezing. May 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Roger Warm and cozy I bought this for my daughter 12yrs old. No complaint. Its durable and it kept her warm. April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Kaylee Worked wonderfully I bought this sleeping bag for a girls retreat because I knew I would be sleeping in my Eno hammock instead of traditionally in a tent. This worked out wonderfully, it kept me nice, comfy, and warm in addition too providing me with plenty of protection from the bugs. Of course if you like to have lots of leg room this is not the ideal sleeping bag for you, but for my purpose it worked well. April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby ScoutDad Marmot Aspen 40 Minimalist Sleeping Bag I couldn't believe it when I saw a Marmot bag for $69 on sale at Dick's. I wanted a lighter weight bag for summer use and this seems to be it. I find the bag comfortable, not too confining. I'm 5'-8", about 165lbs and flux between large and X-large tees. The bag lofts well if it is stored outside of the compression sack between use. It is comfortably warm down to the 50 degrees that I have exposed it to so far. I believe it would be true to the 40 degree rating for me. It packs extremely small and light for the money. I do sometimes feel like I could use a bit more elbow room in the bag, but only during a restless night. It does seem to move nicely with me without becoming twisted up. The zipper has stuck on me on an occasion or two, once at a bad time for me anyway. With the hood cinched down I awoke and suddenly felt too confined and couldn't get out of the bag quick enough. Nothing like a jammed zipper to add to the anxiety. I have since learned to be a bit more slow and steady and zipper issues become minimal. I called Marmot to check the girth of the bag and they told me it is 63 inches at the shoulder. I did not get the hip measurement. Marmot did tell me that they do fully warranty the bag for life. Overall I recommend this bag for summer if you are of average build. February 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby coachcleats Summer Bag Only good for summer or not so cold fall & spring days December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Bro Ken Perfect for California camping or backpacking This bag fits true to size but is not too restrictive. It is light weight and compressible for backpacking or taking up less room in the family wagon on camping trips. It should be perfect for most needs in California except for the diehards who like it high and/or cold. September 9, 2014
