When Dave Swan ordered a “large” sleeping back from Amazon, he expected to be able to fit inside it.
The 31-year-old, who admits he’s “overweight”, wasn’t able to zip the camping item up.
While he could squeeze into the £12.67 Kounga Store bag, his arms wouldn’t fit inside it.
So the social work student, from Stirling, had to get his wife Trisha to help him out.
The 28-year-old was able to get her partner into the sleeping bag eventually – but it’s not comfortable enough to use.
Dave is going to buy a new camping bed instead, which he’ll have to do before his trip to the Highlands this weekend.
Dave, who weighs 25st, said: "My wife picked up some camping stuff, we are starting to get out and about more.
"We thought about going camping and we got some tents and stuff.
"I'm definitely overweight but I'm trying to lose weight and have started hillwalking.
"But I'm too big to fit inside the sleeping bag, I'm 6ft 2 and quite heavy.
"I think they should know they are not big enough. I couldn't get my arms zipped in.”
Dave continued: "I had to get my wife to zip it up, and I had to lie on the couch to get it zipped up.
"It is not comfortable at all.
"I have never used one before, that's the first time I've tried.
"It is a bad experience for the first time.
"It looks like it was made for kids. I'll be taking the duvet instead."
The Amazon shopper took to Facebook to complain about the item.
He shared a picture of himself, writing: "Are these things a standard size or am a inside a weans one?
"It was like trying to squeeze a hippo into a hold-all."
A spokesman for Amazon has since responded to the complaint, writing: "We will be contacting the customer directly to arrange a return."
