Being 5.2, this is the first bag I've tried that is shorter. Without the extra room that fills with cold air, this bag stayed warmed than bags I've slept in that are rated for much colder temperatures. I recently returned from a bikepacking trip in Colorado, where I slept out for 11 nights in super variable temps, and was comfortably warm... Read More every night! We had everything from a hot, first night camping near wildfires, where I could keep my feet outside of the bag, thanks to the zipper system, to freezing nights where we woke up to snow. The bag kept me comfortable and warm the entire trip. We had many stormy nights, that wetted the bag, but it was always quick to dry before sleeping the following night. The bag is also incredibly lightweight and packable, and perfect for bikepacking.
Great for backpacking
I give this a 5 star b/c it was great bag for my backpacking needs. With most great backpacking gear, it's light. Which means a "lighter" build trade off more often than not. In this case, the material is more susceptible to ripping IMO. I'm just more careful with this bag. But no issues so far. Great craftsmanship, very warm an...

850 19F/short - blue on the outside and orange on the inside
Bought this in March 2018 when it was blue on the outside and orange on the inside - looks like the fabric was switched recently. The first use was out in the high desert last weekend (Nov 10, 2018) - temp was in the 30s or lower at night - and I froze! The footbox is too narrow so that I had to struggle to lift put one foot and put it behind the o... Read Morether knee to warm it. Also, the orange material stayed cold to the touch the entire night!!! The next morning when I was looking down into the bag, I could see through the bag like down was completely missing in the foot area. I'm 5'5" and a 105 lb girl, so don't have a lot of insulation on me, but I expect an expensive bag from Patagonia to be warm!!! It seems like you guys are getting very skimpy with your down - it should be a lot more stuffed!
Favorite sleeping bag with perfect cut
I find this to be the best-designed sleeping bag I've ever owned. It's wildly comfortable,compressible,and warm. The center-zip with 3 zippers and the shaped foot box are perfection. I use it on overnights for alpine climbs,generally in spring,early summer,or fall in the High Sierra. Unlike the previous review,I found the fit to be perfe... Read Morect for me. I'm 5'4" and athletic build,and found the length perfect. I didn't have much extra length to spare in the "short",so think up to 5'6" probably makes sense. I'd agree that it's a slightly higher-volume bag,but not at all excessively so (perhaps it's too wide for very slender people?),at least for me.
Great looking bag but unexpected fit
The bag looks great and I think the design of the foot box and hood are fantastic,however,it won't be making it out the mountains with my wife nor myself. I purchased a Short (advertised for good up to 5'6"). She's 5'3" and she disappeared inside of it,so I tried it and the height would actually be perfect for me (an a... Read Moredded 1" would seal the deal). I can't understand how it's advertised for good up to 5'6",but would still fit me as well as my WM bag. What's more,the volume / width of the bag is enormous. I'm 6' 175lb slim build and it seems 1.5x too voluminous. Not really an issue if it was advertised as a high-volume bag,but unfortunately this will be returned. Apart from the fit,I think this would have been a great bag to take 3-season in the Canadian Rockies.
A bag I've been waiting for!
When I first saw the design of this bag I could tell that athletes were involved in its creation. That made me quite excited. So many features make sense; from the mid zip to the foot compartment design the bag delivers on all it promises. I've used it on two trips thus far in varying temperatures and conditions and it has been everything I ha... Read Mored hoped for. I can move around when sleeping and the bag moves with me. I don't fight with it like other bags as I move from side to side (I'm generally a side sleeper). Mid zip allows me to easily regulate temperature as needed throughout the night. I'm 5'5" and the short is a perfect fit. I have used it a couple times when it was a bit too warm and I just unzipped it,flipped it over and used it as a blanket. Perfect. LOVE this bag and am looking forward to it being a steadfast companion for many years!
Comfortable,light and functional
I am just returning from my first expedition with this bag. It got me through two and half weeks of cold,wet backpacking in the highlands of Ecuador and a week at a high basecamp near Antisana. From a temperature stand point,I was cozy when the temps were around 25F while sleeping in light baselayers. On a particular morning our tent did a less t... Read Morehan ideal job at keeping the water on the outside,yet this bag dried quickly and retained its loft through moderate saturation. I have the short version and am 5' 3" with wide shoulders and a habit of sleeping in strange positions. I felt there were enough rope in the bag to move around freely even when I was stuffing extra clothes in the bottom of the bag and near my torso. I really like the front zipper function for hanging out in,changing clothes and venting. I had the cinch chord on the hood pull through but it sounds like Patagonia is dealing with that as I write this. Regardless the hood is comfortable when pulled over,which is rare for me to find. Overall really excited to have this as a three season bag and to take it on more expeditions!
