Rated 5 out of 5áby Wheelsucker lightweight and good value
Plenty of arm and shoulder room. I like the mummy, rectangular hybrid so there is more room for the upper body but it may affect the 35 degree rating. 40 degree may be more accurate but I did not experience 30 degree nights. A baselayer with socks kept me warm at 40 degrees and was not too warm on 60 degree nights. Perfect bag for bike touring late spring thru early fall. An insert may be necessary for colder nights. Stuff sack is appropriately sized if bag is stuffed not rolled. If you are taller than 5'10", get longer bag.

Rated 1 out of 5áby CGNewLenox Temperature rating not accurate
My son used this for a 2 night campout. Weather was 45 first night and 35 second night. He froze. He had long underwear, two jackets and used a sleeping pad. It was very compact and lightweight. However, definitely not for cold nights. Returned this item.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Chris41305 AT Thruhike Tested
I purchased this bag to use on my 2012 AT Thuhike. It performed exceptionally well from nights in the teens to nights in the eighties. Had some snowy cold nights in teens and twenties and with the use of a Sea to Summit silk liner I stayed warm enough - it is a true 35 degree bag but will perform well at lower temps. Packs well in a 65 liter backpack. The only drawback is the drawstring on the hood is a little cumbersome. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5áby welshes99 Light and compact
Pleased with the overall weight and more importantly the ease at which to stow (get back in bag) after use. There are a few sleeping bags I've bought where the effort to get them back in the storage bag requires an advanced degree. Not the case with the Ultralight.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Presty Wonderful Bag
I bought this bag to do a two plus week trek which included 11 days of backpacking in New Mexico.
Importantly, the bag is lightweight and compact. It does indeed fit into its stuff sack. Also, the bag is plenty warm. I am not sure how cold we got but it got down to 40's and I was always comfy. Most nights were in the 50's and I had the bag partially unzipped. The ability to vent the bottom of the bag with the up zipper was key. I did that often.
I really like this bag and it suggest it for this temperature range and weight. I see that it is out of stock now, I hope they bring it back in.

Rated 5 out of 5áby smalltownprofessional packs small but big on warmth
I have used this bag for three week-long summer bike/camp trips. My most recent trip was unseasonably cold, with high 40's temps on three nights. Other campers were grumbling about their uncomfortable sleeping conditions, but not me. My LL Bean bag packs small but is large on features and warmth. It has an easy zipper, and being able to cocoon my face and upper body with the drawstrings was a lifesaver. And there was enough room to shift sleeping positions, and to bring in my cold clothes to warm them up before dressing.
Adding a secondary silk-cotton (or fleece) bag liner would make it useful over an even wider temperature range. All in all, a five star purchase that I will use for many years.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Nasp Graystone/Bright Orange Ultralight Sleeping Bag 35
The sleeping bag is great! It is everything it is "billed" as being . . please note it states it is only 35F if you wear a base layer while in it. I am assuming that is true because it has not been that cold for us yet. But the bag works well. The stuff sack, not so much. It is billed as being 6 1/2" X 11". I don't know who stuffed those with the bags, but for me and for my husband, it is not humanly possibly to get the bags back into those too small stuff sacks!! We had to go out and buy a compression sack with a little larger dimensions 9" X 11" and the bag goes in with no problem. And the 9" X 11" does go into the bottom of our backcountry back packs with no problem. The sleeping bag would probably go into an 8" X 11", but certainly NOT the 6 1/2" X 11"!!! Aarrgh! This is so totally unlike LLBean!

A great bag for summer use. The extra room of a semi-rectanglar shape is apprectiated. Workmanship is very good. I'm happy with the purchase.

Will be using this sleeping bag at the Boy Scout National Jamboree in July in West Virginia. I tried it on the floor in my home, was happy with the room it has. I feel it should work very well at the Jamboree.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MrMagee Excellent for Motorcycle Travel
I needed a compact sleeping bag for my motorcycle adventures on my vintage Moto Guzzi. I purchased this two years ago. Looks like it was discontinued for some time as it says new but I did buy here. Sleeping with a modest pad in a primitive tent this was the perfect bag on a cool Minnesota August night.
It's also easy to roll-up and compress!
We are buying a 2nd one now as my wife wants to put aside the all season one for summer camping in Nebraska.
