We didn't find any comparison tests of rectangular sleeping bags for car camping, but over two dozens owners review the L.L.Bean Flannel-Lined Camp Bag at LLBean.com. We also found over 65 reviews of L. L. Bean customer products and customer service overall, at Epinions.com. A thorough review of a different L.L.Bean sleeping bag at BackpackGearTest.org confirms the construction quality of this brand.
For a summer sleeping bag, owner-written reviews recommend this roomy rectangular L.L.Bean sleeping bag for car camping in nights as cool as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Owners praise the construction and comfort, and say it holds up after repeated washings (in a commercial front-loader). The 5.6-pound weight is fine for car camping (where you don't have to carry it), and you can also get a longer size (*est. $70) and a size for kids age three to 11 (*est. $40). If you sleep cold, you can get a 20-degree bag (*est. $70). The bags come in six colors, and L.L.Bean provides an unlimited guarantee of satisfaction. You can open the bag flat to use as a comforter, or zip two together to make a double sleeping bag. For a less expensive but heavier double sleeping bag, consider the Coleman Hibernation Sleeping Bag (*est. $70).
More than two dozen owners review the L.L.Bean Flannel-Lined Camp Bag here, giving it a nearly perfect average rating for both adults and kids. The sleeping bag earns praise for soft roomy comfort and its lifetime guarantee, and reviewers say it launders well and does double duty opened flat as a comforter.

These user-written reviews of L.L.Bean as a retailer are relevant, since this is the only source for their Flannel-Lined Camp Bag. Most of the nearly 70 customers are very satisfied, but a few say back-ordered items didn't arrive when predicted, or have other customer service complaints.

This review covers a completely different L.L.Bean sleeping bag suitable for backpacking, but it's worth noting that the owner praises the quality of construction even after two years of use.
