This bag is pretty light for its weight. Hood setup works well, having the round cord for the neck and the flat cord for the hood makes it easy to adjust in the dark. This bag packs down very small, it fits in the sleeping bag compartment of my pack (Lowe Alpine Fitzroy) with my pad and Jetboil stove.. My only complaint is that the stuff sack could be a little bigger as it's pretty tough to get the bag into it. The sack has compression straps so making it a little bigger wouldn't have been a problem as you could compress it further after packing it away. That's the only reason for it not getting 5 stars. With my ExPed SynMat 7 it kept me nice and warm with an overnight low of 25 degrees. I'm sure it will hold up to its 20 degree rating, I'd probably be good at 15 but I do tend to sleep warm. The color is pretty intense but that could be a good thing in an emergency. Please, if you're going to write a review, use the product first. Saying its a great color or that you haven't used it yet doesn't help anyone.
