how is the women's long different from the Men's regular? I really like a roomy bag (rectangle) although I'm a 5'3" woman. I want a quality bag that will keep me warm well below freezing so a 0 degree bag. I have back issues so I toss and turn a lot at night, esp. when sleeping in a sleeping bag. Thanks.
MARK S The cut of the women sleeping bag is different than a mans bag particularly in the hip dimensions. Also the rating for a womens bag is different. A womens would be rated 15+ degrees higher for the same bag as a mens.
MARK S I don't have the men's version of the bag. I bought the women's long for my wife, she is 5'-6". She has similar needs like you described. The regular was definitely too tight and short for her since she doesn't like things pressing on her feet. She really likes the long bag. It is roomy without being so large she can't keep it all warm.
