I used this bag for a 4-month outdoor semester, sleeping in this bag for roughly 80% of the nights. My semester was in the Fall of 2012 in the mountains of NC around the AT. This bag performed very well for the variety of conditions we expeirenced.
The temperature never got below 30-so I can't exactly comment on it's comfort level vs it's rated. However, I can say that it kept me warm even when I was soaking wet and sleeping in a puddle of water in the 40s.
The bag comes in a very useful stuff/compression sack, which lets you really sinch it down and pack it up tight. After 4 months though, the seams look like they're pretty well stretched, and I don't think it was designed to be sinched down as much as I did- so that's a thing to note.
Also, the zippers initially were very stiff. It includes both a zipper by the head and by the feet, which was very useful.
The mummy-head cover has an elastic pull-tab so you can make it right around your face.
Overall very satisfied! Would definitly recommend-although it is more expensive than ones you can buy at walmart-the increased quality of the marmot brand I think is worth the cost.
There are alot of people who claim you'll be warmer in a sleeping bag if you're inside of it naked. This is rediculous. Wear more clothes and you'll be warmer. Stuff the empty space inside the bag with your extra clothes and you'll be warmer.
At night sometimes my feet got cold-I stuffed my rain layer down to cover my feet, and they were no longer cold. Really simple.
Another practical tip- if you're hiking all day and you want to put on dry socks in the morning- sleep with your socks in the sleeping bag. Your body heat will dry the socks over night. I would lay my socks accross my abdomen or my sides as I slept. It really does work!

Love love love this bag. It's a men's regular which reaches 6 ft. and I'm 5'9" so the extra space gives me a little room to wiggle and extend my legs and feet entirely. Read morePublished on July 28, 2014 by Carina Wedel
Haven't tried the bag on a packing trip yet, but it fits well and is warm. Reason for the 3 I it did not come with stuff bag. So I had to spend another $20-25 for one at REI.Published on April 15, 2014 by Findadeal
