Voted 5/5

This is a great addition to my North Face bag. On trips when I am not worried about losing a little warmth, I put this in and have a nice, rommy, comfortable night's sleep. It does not effect packing it into the sleeping bag compartment. A real plus on those summer trips.

Voted 4/5

When I discovered this item from North Face I rejoiced because I was always so uncomfortable in tight fitting bags. Adding it has pushed the limits of my stuff sack but a little extra effort is all that is needed. The downside here and the largest weakness is that is compromises the warmth of any bag it is added to. It is thin and does not seal well when added to a bag with a zero rating or less.
