I found the Speed 32 to be quite snug, but this is an acceptable sacrifice when weight and speed are major factors. Believe the EN 32F lower limit. I pushed it and spent one very uncomfortable night.
My only real gripe is the zipper. A jammed zipper in any bag is irritating. The zipper in this tight fitting bag can be totally frustrating, especially in the middle of the night when nature gives you a panic call.
I would recommend this product.

This bag is great. It's light, it's warm for the weight. It's perfect. It's too good to be true. Its fatal flaw: the zipper. I read the reviews on the bag and thought, "how bad could the zipper really be?" It's bad. Real bad. Mine broke on the first night. I wish it were a zipperless bag or just a functional zipper; that would make it perfect. I feel bad giving it one star because the rest of the bag is phenomenal, but the zipper negates all that. Go with the phantom 32-- you'll be glad you did.
I do not recommend this product.
