A great choice for three-season hiking trips and car camping excursions, the roomy Wenzel Grande is an affordable rectangular sleeping bag that's temperature rated to 5 degrees Fahrenheit. It's filled with 6.5 pounds of Wenzel's hypoallergenic Insul-Therm polyester fiber fill for excellent warmth retention and loft. The bag has a rugged 10-ounce cotton duck cover and a soft, warm 100 percent cotton flannel inner liner with classic plaid pattern. The quilt-through construction helps reduce the bunching of fill to eliminate cold spots. Other features include self-repairing zippers, a personal storage pocket at the foot, and three integrated compression straps.

Smallest it rolls to is approx 18 inches long by 12 inch diameter so DO NOT consider unless you have a car or bigger for transport.
Below freezing I'd put an insulating mattress in car, plus I would want my mummy bag to hand because I suspect that id have to use it as a liner - having said that, I'm in my 50s and feel cold more than most people. I intend to go up north where its well below freezing at night, and I'll update review to let you know how I got on, but wont be until a few weeks time.
I paid well more than I normally would for a sleeping bag, but if I keep warm up north, it will have been worth it.
When I woke this morning in bag in car, I didn't want to get up because it was lovely and warm in bag. It hasn't got any satin or silk in the lining, but it adds a bit of luxury to car camping. Its too big and heavy to go backpacking with. Do I regret the purchase? No. Do I think I could survive -15 deg C? Not without my fleece lined snow trousers, loads of layers of jumpers, hat, two pairs of thermal snow socks and gloves; or else with my mummy bag as my liner. All said and done its my primary bag unless the 1200g down bag that's on order proves to be warmer.
The negatives so far are just nit picking and not worth mentioning.
Took it Camping with my Cubs last weekend the temps dropped down to 3 or 4 c by the time I was in bed, after throwing a water bottle in it for 10 mins before I got in it removed the chill completely.
There is enough room should you need to to duck in side it if it gets really cold.
It packed away very easily with a stuff sack for it, even when I rolled it back up there was plenty of room left in the bag for it.
The only issue that I can remotely think of is that there is no water proof cover for the opening in the bag, but given that this isn't something you will be hiking with due to its size and weight its not a problem

The bag has two compression straps stitched to the bottom of the bag, as well as a nylon cover wrap, which lets you fold the bag in half vertically then roll the bag up. Once fully rolled up, the nylon cover wrap surrounds the bag material, and you can then snap the compression strap buckles in place to keep the bag rolled up. Be careful when tightening the buckles on the compression straps, as on my 6th or 7th use the stitching on one of the buckles broke apart. You would be better served tightening the buckles BEFORE snapping them together, get the right tension, then snap the buckles together after to prevent stripping the stitching.
The zipper is prone to get stuck, so it is important to zip/unzip the bag when it is spread out and flat, so that the zipper has a straight line of direction. Otherwise, the plush material may get caught in the zipper, which is a nuisance to get unstuck.
The bag could be improved with a sleeping bag dormer. There is no lip separating the zipper from the inside of the sleeping bag, which contributes to a little draftiness (plus it makes the zipper cold if you happen to touch it while sleeping!). However, the bag is still adequately warm and did a great job in 30 degree weather.
This bag makes me very happy. It's kinda retro being canvas on the outside and flannel on the inside but that is a plus for me, no sliding around on a synthetic slick covering material. I usually camp in walk-in sites (no generators!) so the size and weight is no problem. It's not really all that heavy, but if I were hiking to a back country site I'd want something more compact. I have not used this bag yet in below freezing temperatures so I can not comment on the zero degree rating.
