I was looking for a comfortable, lightweight, inexpensive sleeping bag for late spring camping in the Smoky Mountains - not too hot, not too cold - and this one fits the bill! This is a comfortable bag, but the lower temperature rating of 40 degrees may be a little optimistic - I was just right at about 50 degrees, and I tend to feel warm. You may need to wear something warm in the sleeping bag if it gets much colder than 50. The lining is soft & comfy, and I like that the lining laps over the opening - nice and soft under the chin. The zipper works well. I slept in it for 6 nights, washed and dried it, and it looks like new. I think this would be too bulky and heavy for back-pack camping, but it is fine for "car" camping in a tent. Two drawbacks: 1 - If you have ANY rough places on your feet, you will need to wear socks - the lining will "stick" to those rough spots. 2 - I will never be able to get the bag back into the stuff sack again, which is not a problem for me - I can probably find another use for the sack. The ties seem to work well. It is listed online for $19.88 with a "prices may vary in stores" disclaimer; I paid $25.97 for this bag in the store last week. You may want to order it for the online price and have it sent to your local store and save a few $$.
