Full Review: Took this bag on two trips Friday through Sunday. First trip to Tucker County Park and the second to Seaquest State Park. This bag comes with an attached carrying bag that folds up into a pocket at the base when not in use. The carry bag is more than ample and makes getting the actual sleeping bag into it more then easy. I think its a bit sloppy and would have liked a more precise fit even with the 3 compression straps, but most people won't be worried for space since its a double wide bag.

The bag has all the standard features: 2 small pockets near the head on each side for stashing small items, 2 pillow pockets for a travel sized pillow, and a draft tube with anti-snag lining. Another cool feature of the Eclipse 30 is that it can be zipped apart and made into two single bags. The bag fit perfectly on top of my queen size air bed and thus provides plenty of room for two people. I also noticed that the bag settles well on top of me when sleeping. This allowed me to unzip the side when I got too warm, but kept heat in for my partner who sleeps cooler.

"The Good" List: Comfy, ample size, and feature rich.

"The Not so Good List": Sloppy carry/compression sack.

The Bottom Line: Good bag with all the features from a reputable brand.
