Excerpt: I avoided down for years. I used heavy and bulky synthetic fill bags. I accepted their shortcomings as normal. I kept reading about how great down was and since my 10 and 20 year old synthetic bags were getting thin I decided to try down. I did a lot of reading and decided on Marmot.

Excerpt: I have used this bag in temps ranging from 5 degrees F to 50 degrees F (more as a blanket at that point). Let me first say that the bag is warm and quite comfortable and if there were no design flaws or customer service issues I would highly recommend the bag.
I've used the bag a few times but never below 40F.

Excerpt: I've used the bag a few times but never below 40F. It's comfortable and has kept me warm. However, because I am a cold sleeper I will probably never use it for winter camping. I have a mountain hardware ramses w/ stormlight that seems warmer. On the down side, expect for this bag to lose down.

Excerpt: I have a love/hate relationship with this bag. I LOVE its construction, its advanced and very high quality materials, its generous cut (I'm 6'5" and weigh about 275 and this thing is cavernous even for me) and its warmth and coziness.

Excerpt: Excellent cold weather bag. Great loft for very little weight. The shell material is very light weight, so if you intend to use the bag in wet conditions I suggest looking into the Dryloft version. If you like to stay dry (i.e. not climb in the cascades) then you can't go wrong with this bag.
