I want to start out by saying overall I found this bag to be extremely comfortable. I’ve had problems with mummy bags in the past mostly because I move a lot at night. If I can’t easily twist around at night I start feeling claustrophobic and get really uncomfortable. I am 5'9" and found the regular size had plenty of extra length but the Casper is also available in a long option for you really tall gals.

The Casper is designed to be a three season, backpacking sleeping bag. It’s filled with Rteq insulation, a polyester blend designed to balance warmth, durability and compressibility. The foot of the bag has been designed to give your feet more room and allow them to rest in their natural sleeping position. To add to the warmth of the bag the zipper has an insulation-filled draft tube that thwarts warm air from escaping and made it so I never turned onto a cold zipper! One insignificant annoyance was I really had to fiddle with the zipper to get out.
Although I never did get the sleeping bag back into the original compression sack because I’m not a machine or the incredible hulk. I had no problems stuffing the bag into its respective place in any of my backpacking packs. The Casper isn't bulky it just comes in a serious compression sack!
Also a little bonus feature Eureka throws in, is an internal pocket which is perfect for your cell phone or glasses.
Unfortunately I am a cold sleeper and the few below freezing nights I spent in my Casper I was cooler than I would have liked to have been. I did find that adding a fleece liner provided just enough warmth to make those freezing nights comfortable. I liked that even though my feet were cold it was because my entire body was cold. One thing I can’t stand is when a sleeping bag creates hot and cold spots. Now that the nights are getting warmer I am looking forward to many more camping trips! If you’re a cold sleeper like me, I would bring a liner along for the really chilly nights.
All said and done ladies you’re getting a comfortable sleeping bag for a low price.
