This bag has been stored loose, which has kept the down light and fluffy. It has very minor signs of use, is free of stains, odors yet with a couple of very small holes (so small you can not thread repair them) in excellent condition throughout considering the minor noted holes, which don't even really leak. This bag has the original Eddie Bauer "Totem tag" that reads : "For the Rest of Your Life".
The fabric is ripstop nylon throughout, outside in blue in color the inside is a red orange color. Measurements: 32" wide x 81" in length when completely flat, measurements are approximate.
