I'm 5'1", 105 pounds wet, and staying warm has always been a huge problem for me. As a medical doctor I've worked as a missionary in Nunavet, Kotzebue, the Ukraine, and Northern Russia, and before I owned the North Slope sleeping bag it was impossible for me to stay warm at night.
The bag is light enough for me to carry easily and has made it possible for me to work in remote areas where I couldn't before.
