I'm 6ft and this bag fits me fine. It unzips if you want to use it like a blanket, and two will zip together two form a double bag. Overall I'm pretty pleased with it. No, it isn't going to keep you as warm as a down mummy bag. No, it probably isn't actually a good choice for 40 degrees. Cheap bags always overestimate like this. I'd say if you wore a thermal and socks this bag would be fine down to 50 degrees though, which isn't bad for how cheap relatively lightweight it is.
This also works well as a summer bag if you want to lay on top of it or unzip. There are lighter bags for summer camping, but I wouldn't want to use those during spring and fall which I'd be comfortable using this one for.
The zipper works well and is fairly resistant to snagging. The inside is slick like the outside which I don't mind (some people like soft cuddly insides).
It is pretty easy to get this into the provided compression bag, and I was able to get this into the bottom compartments of both my Coleman Elate 65L and, to my surprise, my High Sierra Titan 55L (which people complain has a small compartment). It took a couple of minutes of compressing with my knee to get it zipped up, but I did manage it!
