    Ledge Outdoors Scorpion 45 Degree Sleeping Bag clearance blowout on fleabay.

    Not connected with that seller in any way except that I just bought one. Hoping it's long enough to be comfortable. It's half the price of typical bags in this class, so seemed worth a shot.

    Much lighter and smaller than my 15-degree TNF bag, which is just overkill for riding the Husky around the south.

    Got the bag yesterday. I'm 6'4" and 250 lb. Plenty of length and girth. Packs up the size of a football. Slightly heavier (ounces) than some more expensive bags of the type, but not any bigger when packed. Comes with a compression sack. Has all the little detail bells and whistles you'd look for on a good bag. Should be a good piece for milder weather. Very happy with it so far. A great complement to my TNF down bag that is good for me in snow.

    How much extra room in length? I am 6'8" tall and have pretty much given up on finding a bag like this.

    great looking bag, the weight around 2 pounds too.

    I cant sleep in a mummy bag, normally. Just me I bet. If I get too hot, I gotta open it up, and I got the jimmy legs and I kick all night long like Chuck Norris.

    I saw this one actually linked from your guy's ebay listing, it's a different seller, but this guy is 100% for feeback. Same temp rating I think, a bit heavier, but same price range and free shipping. Probably does not roll up as small, but a guy could e-mail the seller and ask. Not as long perhaps either, but I am only freakishly tall in some Asian countries.

    Got some Spamazon in my inbox today. They're for sale there for less shipped than I paid. They are a clearance deal, so get 'em while they're hot. Search "ledge scorpion" and it comes up.
