Summary: I have taken this bag backpacking in March when the nights got down in the high 30s. I was nice and warm, but even with the compression bag it only gets down to a soccer ball size. I loved that you could unzip from the bottom or top—was able to air out my feet this way. I'm only 5' 4" and this bag was just my size. Total weight is 2 pounds 13 oz. Overall, a really nice bag.
Pros: Two zippers, Soft and has good insulation, Comes with a storage bag and a compression sack, Fairly inexpensive, Perfect size
Cons: Wish it could be compressed to a smaller size for easier packing

Excerpt: I believe I have the 2010 version. I paid $160 for this bag. I purchased the long for myself and the regular for my wife. It's filled with 600 power goose down. I've had it down to a temp of 21 deg F. I was wearing a hat, base layer shirt and johns, and merino wool socks. No liner in the bag and I was warm during the night. With my silk liner and similar clothing I could probably squeak out 10 deg but no less than that.
Pros: Quality materials for a bag in this price range, Lofts well, Hood is easy to cinch up, Warm with little to no down shifting, Great compression sack, Zipper at the foot end, Not the lightest, Zipper sometimes snags on the draft tube, The shortened zipper restricts venting options
Cons: Not the lightest, Zipper sometimes snags on the draft tube, The shortened zipper restricts venting options

Excerpt: This is a great bag. I like Kelty products because they tend to be very sturdy, this bag is no exception. Though it is fairly light the fabric feels strong and light while the down is lofty and compactable. It is a warm bag with features like a thicker band of down near the neck and different shaped drawstrings so you can tell them apart in the dark. Kelty thought of everything and the result is a great bag.

Excerpt: This is a great bag overall. I purchased last year's model from REI's outlet and it didn't show up so they gave me the current model. This bag is very light, very compact, and very warm. It has a great feel. The ripstop fabric is extremely lightweight, relatively soft, and quiet when you move around in the bag. It has a foot-zipper which I love because I like to have my feet out of the covers when I fall asleep, then I usually get cold and drag them in.
