LOVE this sleeping bag - extremely well constructed with a differential cut (inner layer is smaller that outer layer to allow down to fluff) and filled with quality goose down (90/10 - NOT from live plucked geese). I also love that Haglofs is an environmental friendly Swedish company. The bag lofts like crazy to keep you warm with no COLD spots (had problems with cold spots with higher end sleeping bags from Marmot) and opens up fully to use as a blanket in warmer weather. I hesitated a lot between the 30 and 15 degree bag and ended up keeping the warmer one and I am glad I did. Both are extremely well made, roomy for a mummy bag, with a great fluffly collar to keep the cold out and a comfy hood. The zipper is one of the best I have seen in a sleeping bag with its snagless feature to minimize snags. This bag lofts up high no matter how much it has been compressed and comes with with a nice, quality compression bag and all cotton muslin storage bag (rather than mesh which is common). Fabric is very comfy and quiet and feels like sleeping in a cloud. I highly recommend the 15 degree over the 30 degree one if you are looking for a all year round bag because you can always open it up if too warm. Temperatures rating appears to be accurate and being cold sleepers, I expect this bag to keep us warm in temperature in the low 20's, which is plenty for Northern California. Remember that in any down sleeping bag, you are the radiator, so if you enter your bag cold, indeed it will take longer to feel warm. Have a hot drink and move around to warm up before entering the bag and you will be toasty and warm all night long! Highly recommend is brand for its quality and attention to details although it is not much known in the US (being a leading outdoor company in Scandinavia and highly popular in the UK). You won't regret it.
