How will you fit? Our guide is based on the user wearing thin base layers.
Spacious: 5ft11 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 100 cm. The bag will be perfectly useable but you will have space within the bag. For this reason it will not be as thermally efficient as an optimum fit but it will be comfortable and you will easily be able to wear extra layers.
Optimum: 6ft4 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 124 cm. At this size you are the ideal candidate for this bag. You should be able to easily arrange yourself in the bag, and still have the space to wear an additional down jacket if necessary.
Tight: 6ft7 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 128 cm. At this size you will start to compress the down and reduce the thermal efficiency of the bag, especially in the foot section and have limited movement around your shoulders when the zip is full closed. You should still be able to take your socks off, but might struggle to take off a top layer without undoing the zip.

Absolutely love this bag!
I'm a big chap, 6ft 4in, built like a rugby player, so sleeping bags are a pain for me. Never long enough and very tight across my chest. I have now spent a week in Yorkshire over new year and a long weekend in Kent when the temp dropped right down to -7.
So weight first, I can't beleave how small this bag packs down, and it's light enough not to even notice in a full pack. Once it's spread out it soon lofts up and after a cold day working is a delight to climb into. Very nice material and it warmed me up fast and kept me comfortable all night.
I have got used to very tight bags, I hate them but resigned myself to it being unavoidable, well not any more, this bag is huge, has plenty of space to move around and roll round if your a fidgety sleeper like me.
The zips have never caught or stuck ( my pet hate) what more can I say, another great product from alpkit.
Tried and Tested - Great Bag
I’m 6ft 6in and have always struggled to fit in a “normal” sized sleeping bag. I needed a good quality sleeping bag in a long size that could deal with low temps for a trip abroad. A friend recommended I look at Alpkit and I’m glad I did.
The sleeping bag performed excellently! I used the bag for 3 weeks solid hiking to and around Annapurna Base Camp (4130m) in Nepal. I was warm every single night even when the temp dropped to -10 on a couple of occasions at higher altitudes.
There were no droughts round the neck or from the zip. The zip didn’t snag the hole trip and it didn’t lose any down. The quality of the bag is good. Solid stitching and nice material.
The bag compacts down to a good size and is light which was must for our trip.
In short great sleeping back that I would recommend to anyone (especially at the price it is being sold at).
