Wenzel Blue Jay Rectangular Sleeping Bag - 5.00 lb Insultherm
- Washing - machine wash cold using mild detergent in a front loading commercial washer. Top load agitator washing machines can damage a sleeping bag.
- Drying - Use a commercial dryer on low setting or air dry.
- Do Not Dry Clean - drying cleaning can damage your sleeping bag.
- Storing - when storing your bag for extended periods of time, do not leave it compressed in stuff sack. Instead place the bag in a larger storage bag, lie loosely on a shelf, or hang your bag in a closet.
- Stuffing Your Sleeping Bag - the best way to stuff your sleeping bag is to grab the top of the stuff sack with one hand, place the bottom of the stuff sack between your feet. Grab the foot of the sleeping bag with your extra hand and stuff it into the bottom of the sack. Grab the next section higher up and continue to stuff until the bag is all the way in.

I love these bags! Got two of them to zip together for a queen sized air mattress. First off, they are big and roomy. They're big even when packed in their included "stuff sack" - slightly bigger than a water cooler bottle. They are also extremely comfortable and I have no doubt they will be warm down to 25 degrees. But nicely, they don't get too warm either. The zipper can be opened from either end, and has a velcro flap at the top to keep it from coming unzipped during the night. Zippers work great and two zip together perfectly. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars is due to the elastic bands to hold it rolled up and the stuff sack. The elastic bands are sewn to the bag and I've had them before on other bags. After a couple of years, they lose their elasticity and are useless. Attached compression straps would be much better. The stuff sack is a little bit too lightweight to last very long and the seams are not reinforced, so it won't be long before it becomes torn up. I'm going to double stitch the seams to hopefully help is last a little longer. Overall, a great comfortable roomy sleeping bag that should hold up well despite a somewhat cheap stuff sack.
I bought this sleeping bag for my 11 year old son because he's always invited to sleep overs that require sleeping bags and sometimes the sleepovers are camping where they sleep outside therefore I wanted something comfy and warm. This sleeping bag was comfy and warm however it is way too bulky it's not fit for a kid because they can not roll it back into the bag, I could barely do it. It's nice if you don't want to travel with it.
