My Wife Likes It!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by tcjrod from Washington on Sunday, July 31, 2016
I purchased this bag for my wife because I was looking for something similar to my older Marmot Helium 15 degree bag. This bag comes pretty close, but has water resistant dri-down and a better water resistant outer shell. It isn't quite as poofy as my Helium, but I expected that since my Helium is 850+ fill down and this bag is 800 fill down. This bag packs down small enough to fit into my 40 liter pack with other overnight gear for a summer backpacking trip. So far it has kept my wife very warm and cozy in temperatures down into the 40's, which isn't much of a test, but is a good start. The quality of this bag is as good as I would expect from Marmot, and I foresee this sleeping bag lasting my wife a long time. All things considered, I would purchase this bag again because I think it is the perfect balance of cost, temp rating, and pack-ability for summer and shoulder season backpacking in the Cascades.
