This is an update of my previous review.
Since my last review I've camped with this sleeping bag at below 32 degrees---there were ice crystals on my tent in the morning---and I was warm even without extra clothing, confirming that the temperature rating is accurate.
This bag has been redesigned for 2012. Specifically the neck opening is now quite a bit narrower. That's too bad, because the wide opening was a positive feature on the previous model.

Why this sleeping bag is just about the best buy you will find anywhere:
This is the perfect 3-season sleeping bag for kayak campers, backpackers, and car campers.
- It's very cheap for the quality and weight.
- It's one of the very few down sleeping bags on the market that will fit a larger person. The size may be called "semi-rectangular," but essentially this is a large mummy bag that will keep you enveloped in down on all sides, including a hood. There is lots of room to stretch out your knees without being in a cramped fetal position all night.
- This bag is very light for its size! You can find 2-lb mummy bags, but not this large. It's so light it qualifies as a backpacking bag.
- LL Bean is honest and accurate with their temperature ratings. I haven't had this bag down to 35 degrees yet, but the amount of loft tells me that it will be warm at that temperature.
- The fabric of this bag is very comfortable both inside and out. The top surface is water repellent.
- LL Bean has an incredible return policy if you’re not happy with any product.
