"Awesome Bag, Yo!"
3 weeks ago
Summary: Great sleeping bag for the price! The fabric can feel a little cool to the touch when it is cold, but it will warm up. Packs pretty small too! My feet got a little cold when the temps dropped below 25F, but an extra set of socks nipped that right in the bud! BOOH-YA GRANDMA!
Summary: Great sleeping bag. Spent a couple of nights in it with temperatures that dipped below freezing and stayed comfortable. Packs down pretty small for a synthetic sleeping bag. My only complaint is that one of the straps on the stuff sack broke.
Summary: The Cat's Meow is, well, the cat's meow. If stuffs nicely inside the provided compression bag to about the size of a volleyball. The weight is not bad. I am right under 6' but opted for the long version as I like a little more room to move around. If you are used to tight quarters then you will not have an issue. I know that the less open space you have, the better, but this will not be going with me on snow camping trips. The color is ok and the inside is super cozy.
Summary: It is a nice looking sleeping bag, great construction. Compression Sack and Storage Sack are both nicely labeled; compression is even color coded to avoid mixups.I'm 5'11"/220 and went with the extra long for bit extra leg and hip room.Have the women's regular as well and they zip up very easy since the mens is Left Handed Zipper and the women's is Right Handed Zipper.
Summary: Feels weird being the first custy...anyways, this is a great bag. While it doesn't really pack down as small as I thought, it packs down pretty small for a synthetic. Thee new foot box really keeps your feet super warm. The draft tubes are awesome, and they help keep you super warm as well. The bag's comfort level is 34, but if you wear a shirt and thermals, you'd be good down to 20. Overall, super warm bag, and great for 3-season camping.

Summary: This is a very popular yet overpriced and underperforming sleeping bag best used during warm weather. The foot box is very small, while the torso area is extra roomy. The small zippered breast pocket is very useful for keeping earplugs or hearing aids, until the material gives out after a few months of use. The small flap of material that covers the soft nylon zipper is at the worst length possible, guaranteeing that the zipper will snag on almost every use.
Pros: Synthetic will stay lighter and warmer when wet, Lightweight, The breast pocket
Cons: Poor material used for the zippers, Poor design of the zipper, Not as warm as advertized

Summary: I bought the Women's Cat's Meow several years ago, so this may be an older version than the one you may be considering for a purchase. I am a 5'2" woman with a frame to match and my sleeping bag was said to be designed for a 5'6" woman. I am also a Southern Californian who is less adaptable to weather changes.
Pros: Glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls, Flannel like material at feet and as a muff like pocket for warm hands, Material feels clean
Cons: Feels cold at 50 degrees, Too much space to heat up, Zipper snags
