30 degrees is Highly Optimistic

For an 800 fill down, loft is not great. Zipper slides open easily, too easy when you inside bag. Needs to be locked in place. Neck baffle is very small. Hood is so so. Round string and flat string style. Pocket on inside with velcro closure. Exterior is ripstop black ~30D, inside grey poly ~30D. Includes a small compression sack and storage sack. Has side baffle design. 3/4 length zipper.

I tried the 30° bag outside, no wind, no condensation. I used a Big Angnes Insulated Air Core pad (15° rating), wore socks, thermal top and bottoms, and a thermal hat.

When temp dropped to 37 degrees, I woke up cold. I would consider this a 40 deg bag.

I really wanted a bag good to 30°. So, this may go back. Bag needs about 3oz more down to make the 30 deg rating.

This is a 2 season bag, 40 to 70 degrees.

The use of 800 fill down over 650 does not buy you much weight savings for the extra cost. I would try the 650 down filled Wenger bags first.
