Excerpt: When my previous bag, a moderately priced store brand synthetic, had its zipper break at the same time that the fill lost most of its loft, I decided to move up to down. I do a lot of camping while motorcycle touring and, while weight is not especially critical, the volume of one's kit must be rigorously minimized if the bike is not to become unroadworthy, or even unrideable.

Excerpt: This bag lives up to its rating. My son and I were 500 feet below this freezing level one night and I did not notice that fact until I woke up and had to take care of business in the middle of the night. It was freezing out there but I was very warm and comfortable in my bag. I had used the Sawtooth before (the 600 fill version), and did noticed the difference in the way the the 800 fill envelops your body rather than lay on your body.

Excerpt: We bought a pair of these for each other four years ago. They are absolutely awesome. I sleep warm and she sleeps cold. We both love the bags. The temperature ratings are conservative, we've been quite comfortable in the low teens with base layers on. The zipper runs the length of the bag so it is easy to use as a quilt on warm nights. Mating two bags offers a large volume for a couple (just don't do it in winter - you'll freeze).

Excerpt: Used this bag in the 40's and actually sweated during the night. Very comfortable fabric and great packability. Avoid over-compressing the bag with an aftermarket compression sack and use a liner to keep it clean use after use.

Excerpt: I have owned this bag for two years now and I have no complaints about it. The first trip I took it on was on Mount St. Helens in December where temps got as low as 5* Fahrenheit. I am a cold sleeper but in this bag I was almost sweating. I have never had a cold spot or cold night in this bag. It packs very small and is uber light. It is perfect for any type of weather.

Excerpt: We bought two of these about six years ago. buy this bag. it has been flawless. we got a great buy at sierratradingpost.com. it has it all--we use them even in our RV in lieu of blankets. but it shines on the trail. tiny, warm, convenient, not confining, state of the art design and workmanship. i sat on mine once while we had it hanging on a hook at home after a trip-YEEOUCHH--i tore it.

Excerpt: Wow! I can't say enough about this bag. Camped at 7000 ft in Death Valley in December on the slopes of Telescope peak during a clear night. Temps dropped into the single digits and all I had on were my thermals and a pair of light weight socks. The bag is rated 10 15 F but that's pretty conservative, I think it's good to around 5 F actually. I was on a thermarest (which probably helped) but I never once was cold in this bag.
