Being 6'2" tall and over 250 lbs (18 stones) can be a problem when looking for a sleeping bag that doesn't make you feel like a bondage fetishist (I'm not, but hey, whatever turns you on). The roomy Pod (yes, even those of 'FB' size will find it spacious) provides the perfect solution. In both length and width there is ample space to toss and turn (or even just turn) all night long. And the extra space provides a fresher sleeping environment. I would accept that the Pod wouldn't provide enough warmth other than in very mild or warmer temperatures for most people, but those of us who have our own natural protection against the elements may find this suitable for all but winter use.

Folded and packed away it's not the smallest item to have to carry, but I sacrificed a few clothes in order to squeeze it into my rucksack, which I could then easily carry on my motorbike. It is bulky rather than heavy. It was worth it. I would highly recommend the excellent Pod to everyone - and particular to those who are 'bigger boned'.

This is a great sleeping bag, after reading the other reviews i did indeed purchase the adult size for my 7 and 9 year olds who are tall for their age and i am very glad i did! I am 5ft 4 and i would say it is just about long enough for me to stretch out, any taller and I would definitely go for the XL

Being over 6 feet tall and 'blessed' with broad shoulders, finding a comfortable sleeping bag has been something of a task. This product lives up to it's claims, allowing an impressive level of freedom of movement. I really cannot praise the space and comfort of this product enough. If like myself you struggle to fit into 'normal' bags, or find the shape of mummy bags too restrictive or claustraphobic this is a good investment. The built-in compression bag is a nice innovation, but be advised, even with the straps tightened as much as possible, this bag is still a little bulky when rolled up.

As for the warmth, it really is just on the cusp of being a decent 2 season bag, if you want a warmer bag with the same freedom of movement, I recomend the Gelert Beyond range (unfortuntely not available via amazon, but easily available elsewhere online) EDIT: It apears that Gelert's Beyond range is now as rare as hen's teeth, so don't hold your breath.

A great piece of kit if you get stressed out by sleeping bags restricting your night time movement! The XL version is a must for taller people, I found a 3 season version from another online retailer from the Gilert Beyond range and decided to go for that one, so will be able to use when the weather is a bit more chilly. Pack size is slightly on the large size but the compression straps help, im also going to try using my existing compression sack an see if we can't get it smaller!

Hi I bought this as my daughter already had the standard size pod. I am delighted with it. I am 5 '7 and a little on the large side and i have loads of room in this. I can move around to my hearts content and its really cosy and warm. A must have for camping in British or Irish summers

I returned this item as there was a manufacturing fault. The neck drawstring was loose and pulled straight through. To be honest I would have returned this had it not been faulty. Of course any product can have a fault and this is not the reason for a two star review.

I am really sceptical that this really is a three season bag as you can see light through it from the inside and Gelert have been really stingy on the stuffing.

Having camped for decades and owned and used many bags, I really should have known better than to expect a great product at this price. I was however attracted by the roomy design which I still think is good in principal and this alone is why I have not given it a one star review.

My time travellers advice to myself would be to save up and spend around £200 on a half decent bag, and if I was still tempted to order a sleep pod to go and see one in a camping store before ordering.

Bought the XLsleeping bag after reading the reviews on the adult bag. It is massive!. However it was nice to have extra room to move around.
