Good bag, but not a Marmot Helium

Verified Buyer Reviewed by West Thumb from California on Wednesday, October 11, 2017
I just returned from 5 nights backpacking in the Sierra, sleeping in 25-35 degree temps in a tent. I sleep cold and it kept me warm with just a fleece on in the bag, but I had to have the thing really snugged up with just nose and eyes exposed to keep me warm. The bag is definitely warmer than my older 600 fill 15 degree bags and is much lighter and more compact. It does not appear to have the DWR finish of the Marmot Helium, nor the curved baffles. The draft tube is kind of wimpy and the hood is nothing special. I'm not sure if the Helium is worth $150+ more than this bare bones but functional bag. I may wish I had the DWR outer of the Helium but this one worked just fine on this trip and I only hope it is a durable as all my other Marmot gear.
