Summary: I was really disappointed in this bag. I needed a bag to use in temperatures from 30-50. I read all the reviews and narrowed it down to the Horse Thief 35 degree and the Marmot 40 degree bags. I purchased both bags so my wife would also have one. At 40 deg my wife was cold all night which was surprising since she is a very warm sleeper. I tried the bag also at 40 degrees and was cold all night also.

Summary: I really like this bag and the integrated Big Agnes pad system. It packs down super light and small and feels roomy enough for me and my big manly shoulders (I'm a tick under 6'0, a tick under 200 lbs., and I have the long version of this bag). I don't think I've gotten close to pushing the 35 degree rating, because cold weather camping is for maniacs and insane people, so I'm withholding a star until I can confirm the rating.

Summary: I originally purchased this bag with the insulated-air core pad for the affordable savings in weight. For the money, there's no seeping-pad / bag combo out there that hits my sweet-spot for comfort, warmth, weight and price. The bag and pad together weigh under 3 lbs and I spent around $250. Used to be if you wanted something this light, you'd have to pay a mint for something potentially flaky. So for me, this is a bargain.

Summary: Not for me this. I spent three nights with the Horse Thief and mummy sleep mat combo and didn’t have a good night’s sleep once. There has been a lot said and written about the Big Agnes system, which in theory seems a winner. However, I found myself cocooned in the bag and any movement caused the whole thing, mat included, to tilt off the deck with me. It felt as if my legs were taped together.

Summary: This is a nice comfortable bag. If you are larger than 5' 10" and weigh more than 200 lbs. it may be too small for you. It was perfect for temperatures in the 50s so the 35 degree rating may be optimistic. Light and packs small.
