All good except the color

The only thing that's hard to take is the bright orange color. I guess it could be a good thing for aerial search & rescue - high visibility.
What's great about this bag is the continuous baffles. The down can be shifted from bottom to top or vice versa to accommodate a wider range of temps. The cut is just about right for me. I like room to turn easily and to sleep with a leg cocked sideways, yet not so roomy that efficiency is significantly compromised. This bag is virtually the same cut as a Feathered Friends Osprey if that helps. The shell is Pertex Quantum - great choice for strength and breathability. The DWR works great, as on any new fabric. Time will reveal how water resistant the weave is on its own.

Stuffing it in a stuff sack is a pain as the fabric is so wind proof the air struggles to flow out of the baffles - don't be in a hurry. Two things that I would change if I could custom order this thing other than the color: one is to put more down in the draft collar - what's there is a bit skimpy. The other is a wider length of reinforcement fabric along the zipper to minimize catching. The fabric seems to catch fairly easy, but this is nothing I'm not used to from my other bags so I'm already in the habit of using both hands when zipping.

800 fill down, an honest 7+ inches of loft, and a Pertex shell for $300. I can live with orange.
