I bought this sleeping bag about 3 years ago and have used the bag a number of times. I work in the outdoor retail industry and have to say that this is a great sleeping bag. Are there warmer bags out there? Definitely. But the weight and warmth ratio is very good. This bag is superlight and packs down super small (literally just barely bigger than a nalgene bottle). I've used this bag in temperatures in the teens (yes this is a 32 degree bag) The EN rating on this bag is actually rated at 29 degrees which is fantastic. When I used this with temperatures in the teens, I had also pitched my tent on top of snow and I was still fairly warm inside the sleeping bag. It is on the expensive side but you are paying for the higher down fill count (800 fill goose down) In turn, this allows the bag to compress more. The only downside that I see with this bag is that the stuff sack that came with the sleeping bag is very small and it made it extremely difficult to get the sleeping bag back into the stuff sack. I opted to buy a small sized sea to summit ultra sil nylon compression sack and have been extremely happy otherwise. For someone looking for a good 3 season bag, this is a great bag that will last you many years (as long as you take care of the bag). To care for this bag or any down sleeping bag. Never keep the bag compressed for long periods of time. As soon as I get back from a trip, I air the bag out by hanging it outside. I also store the bag in the included mesh stuff sack. This is crucial if you want your bag to stay lofty.
