I've used this sleeping bag on several trips. It is comfortable and feels nice and soft. However, as soon as the temp drops below 32, it gets too cold. I wouldn't recommend this sleeping bag if tempretaures drop below 32 at night! Otherwise a great product.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased five of these. My three children(11B,12G,16B) used these with me on two 5 day trips so far and they have performed as expected. The weight is reasonable for them to accomplish 28-30lb packs. One used in a ENO hammock and the other two were in a tent on Big Bertha pads. The reviews that say this bag is not correctly temp rated surprise me. Although these trips so far were in VA and NC all of us were actually unzipping the bags thru the night in mid 40's. I was on top of it at points. My girlfriend is 105 lbs and she was comfy as well, we zipped together a L and R bag and it worked great in the MT Hardware Archer 2 Tent. Which also by the way is an amazing tent.
Zippers: Great
Foot Room: Great
Head Room: Perfect
Tear and Rip Resistance: Excellent so far.
I would recommend this product.

Good bag for spring/summer hiking

Purchased this bag last week. This is my first mummy bag that I have owned. I was concerned about it being too restrictive however it was perfect. I used it on an overnight hiking trip (Summer) to a high mountain lake. I estimate the Temp around 40 Deg and the bag was perfect. I could see the bag would be easily comfortable down to 30 deg. I did have a thermal top on but was not dressed for warmth. The sleeping bag is just over 3lbs and collapses easily in the sack provided. The sack that converts to a pillow was perfect. I would recommend this bag for spring/summer hiking for intro / moderate hiking.

Tempurture range is a joke

I've generally be happy with the quality of the Pinole 20 bag, however, to 20D temp. range is a joke. On a recent trip the night temp got to 38, I was wearing thermal underwear, sweet suit pants and a micro fleece top and was still cold. I'm not a cold sleeper and the bag is fine down to about 50 but below that it is not up to what is advertised.

Bag Temp Ratings
Posted May 7, 2012
Bag temp ratings from any vendor are only a guideline... Anything below 40 degrees (f) and you really should be looking at a 0 or -20 bag.
As a youth and an adult, (Living in a milder region of the southeast) I use a 20 bag for early fall, spring and supmmer, and because I like to be warm.. For Late fall and winter I use a -20 bag, even though I have never been in weather colder than 17 degrees. This bad is high quality and perfect for general weather. I did use it in 20 degree weather and as I expected, I had to use a fllece bag inside and sleep in thermals. It compacts VERY well and comes in right at 3lbs. If I had it to do over again for both Scouting and Backpacking, I would buy the exact same bag for spring, summer and fall (40 degrees on up) without hesitation, and use the bulkier heaver bag for anything below 40... Anything above, and I would be too warm (miserably).. SO please remember, temp ratings on bags are only a guideline and each individual takes to cold/warmth differently.. I hate cold, but some of my friends coul;d sleep outside in their underwear and be happy.. (Well.. not really, but you get the point..) Exceptiona 3 season bag.

I used this bag on a recent 4 day hike through south Florida and was very pleased with it. I used it in my hammock tent in conjunction with a therm-a-rest pad and slept like a baby. I switched out the stuff sack that came with it for a compression sack but other than that they bag is great, especially for the price. I especially enjoy the option of right or left handed zippers, it is easy to use the bag as a blanket if it is not cold out (like here down south)

Haven't yet had the chance to test the temperature rating of the bag, however, the fit is quite good. Initially, I was a little concerned about how snug the bag was but was quick to discover that there ample space exists in just the right places. Of particular comfort is the foot area. Plenty of room is offered here and actually, I found, helped to eliminate some of that confined space feeling found in other bags. The cut of the bag continued to impress me as it was "cozy" in the leg / thigh area and then opened a bit more in the torso area. Overall, a great balance of space and efficiency.
