I purchased this bag to help reduce my pack weight and volume - and it did not disappoint. While not uber light, it's a good value at STP's discounted price with add'l coupon code. I tested this bag on a weekend trip where temps dipped into the upper 20's and was raining/snowing steadily throughout the day and night. The bag handled the damp conditions well and kept me toasty warm with a thin liner (Haglofs sleeping bag liner sold at STP) and light weight base layer. Woke up to condensation in the tent, but the bag seemed to shed any moisture well. The comfort mummy cut was nice but not overly spacious as to induce cold spots (I'm 6'1", 175 lbs with fairly broad shoulders) and the hood is well designed. The long version had enough space to hold me and also warm extra clothes for the morning and fuel can. Draft tube is nicely designed and had slightly heavier weight nylon on one side which seems to help prevent snags as you're opening / closing bag. Zipper seems a bit beefy (probably an area where some weight savings could be had), but probably helps keep snagging in check. Hood is also well filled and has 2 draw cords to customize the cinching ... was very comfortable to sleep in. Finally, small zip pocket on the outer chest measuring about 3"x4". My first MH and down bag, and am very pleased.
