The Snugpak Softie Chrysalis 2 is a sleeping bag that has evolved to the next level; putting you in control of temperature and comfort by transforming from a warm, snug sleeping bag, into a cool and spacious one, with a built in LED torch to assist you.
The bag boasts all the features of a quality Snugpak mummy-style sleeping bag but the jumbo zip baffle can be opened out to give much more room within the sleeping bag by opening the expander panel. The extra space within the bag allows air to move around, keeping the bag cooler. And if the temperature drops? Just zip the bag tighter and instantly boost the warmth around you

Note on temp rating: This one claims comfort at 36F and a low range of 27F; I don't think either would be nearly the case for me, but that's not unique to this bag. Comfort depends on what you wear, the temp inside your shelter, how much breeze there is, etc. I always add 20F to the nominal temp rating, I've had this one down to 50F no problem. In the 40s I'd go with my 20F down bag; in the 20s-30s I'd go with my 0F down bag. YMMV.
Original review below:
I bought this elsewhere, but it's the same one. Clever designs both for shortening it for kids and for expanding it to give additional girth. The light on the hood - well, I haven't installed it, can't imagine using it, but who knows, maybe I should give it a try. [Update: light did not work; it came with 2 CR2032 installed - which were noted to be "for demonstration only", i.e., don't count on them lasting, and 2 more CR2032 for regular use. All four coin batteries were dead, and the LED light was lightly corroded inside. It's not clear if it would work with fresh batteries. Mine was on clearance so it all may have been old and/or not stored well.]
Have only used it indoors thus far, so I can't speak to the temp rating, but I am happy with it for the then-clearance price I got. One thing I don't like about it is the quality of the zipper. It's a fairly large-toothed plastic zipper that seldom operates smoothly. It catches a lot - either on the fabric or it just won't travel unless the unzipped parts are lined up just so.
Compression sack is a nice touch. Some claim the straps rip out easily, but I think the key may be to compress it by hand first and then take up the slack in the straps, rather than use the straps as the compressing force.
