Is there heavy duty fabric inside at the feet?

Same material throughout, large amount of down in the foot.
This one is new, retails for $250.

Is it baffled or sewn through?

Is there a draw cord around the circumference? (I'm thinking this could be a great kids bag if it could be drawn up around their neck for a seal)

It's sewn thru, just the drawstring at the neck.

Kids bag! on 02/23/2013 11:38:56 MST Print View

Wish I had a bag like this when I was a kid! Nope, $10 walmart special says the old man. Ya know, the bags that compress down to the size of a beach ball? :P

Yeah, I hear ya, Dan! My first, very own, bag was a rectangular, hoodless, synthetic thing with duck print flannel inside and a heavy cotton like shell. It weighs over 7 lbs...as much as my entire load on wkd summer trips! I remember the day I got it like it was last week. Didn't know much different so was one proud 10 yr old! 34 yrs ago. Still have it. Resides in our camper van.

When I was in boy scouts we used to go backpacking in the winter in Harriman State park in NY and my friend Brian had a 50 degree flannel bag and he would freeze so all night long he would flip on his bic lighter inside the bag and then every once in a while the flannel lining would catch on fire and we would hear YaOugh!! as he slapped it out. Our bags were not much better than his but we slept in hammocks with foam pads that wrapped around us and kept us warm. We wore jeans and they would get wet and stain our legs blue. It's a wonder we lived, Some of those trips were around 10 degrees.
