Coleman Oak Point 30º Big & Tall Sleeping Bag
Warm Sleeping Bag
I purchased 2 of these sleeping bags for my kids. They used them on a camping trip. They were plenty warm and they liked the soft flannel inside. I wanted to purchase one sleeping bag instead of buying a childs size. Since we camped during the Summertime the bag was hot if you wanted to lie on top of it. It is made from slick material on the outside that retains heat. So when you are laying down to take a nap, it is a little sticky and hot. We were camping in 80+ weather.So perhaps all cotton would be better if you were picky. At night it was just fine and very warm. It got down to low 50's at night. Because it had the slick material outside it was a little difficult to roll back up. I would recommend this bag.

Good General Use Bag
First the good. The bag is huge and there will be ample room even for larger people. You may even find that two people can share a single bag if they are skinny enough. Also the main zipper is heavy duty and showed no signs of snaging when opening and closing the bag. There is a second zipper at the foot of the bag which allows for air to escape when rolling it up after use. As to the comfort and warmth of the bag, the bag was quite comfortable. I haven't tried the bag at its perscribed limits but I found it quite warm in 50 degree weather.
Now the bad. The tie strings for the bag are quite thin and look like they will snap very easily. I would recommend purchasing tie straps. Also there is no stuff bag that comes with the sleeping bag so a stuff bag or a military style compression bag may need to be purchased as well.

Not what we expected
Taking this bag on our first camping trip, we discovered that the measurements of this bag were actually smaller than our old bags. We were expecting something longer considering the Big/Tall description. Also this bag seemed a little cold for camping in 45 degree weather, although rated for 30 degrees.
Not satisfied with this purchase at all.

I am 6 foot and 275 lbs and this bag fit well.
I was able to roll over w/o the bag bunching up.
Temps got down to the 30 so bag is true to temp
rating. Only reson it didn't recive 5 stars is that some of the insulation was bunched up in the corner. " Plow zipper" is a great invention.
