How would you grade this itemʼs materials, construction and workmanship?
How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I am very happy with my purchase of the Phantom 32. I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger and this bag is about as light as a bag gets for the same temp rating as it's competitors. The shell material doesn't feel too delicate though I won't be throwing it around carelessly anyways. I'm 6'11" and the Regular just barely fits me. It's going to be fine but I felt the Long would be overkill and there would be too much extra space at my feet. My only complaint is that there isn't enough room in the hood to put a pillow inside the bag. Not a problem though as long as you strap your pillow (or whatever you're using as such) to your sleeping pad so it doesn't get away from you in the night. My only other concern is that the draft tube is a little lacking. I haven't used it in low temps but my initial impression is that drafts could still get in. Not a big deal though. I always use my bag with a liner and under garments
I would recommend this product.

Great spring summer bag

This is a great spring summer bag here in Nevada. I also use it for adventure racing as it packs up small and provides enough warmth for a few hours of sleep. I have a Phantom 0 degree bag for winter and cold weather but this is a great bag for all other conditions. I highly recommend it.
The weight and size of this bag is so small, it's awesome. Warmed me up quickly in the cold and wasn't bad to stuff it into it's liter size bag. The only issue I had with it was the zipper, it sticks often.
i bought this bag as an emergency bag for winter climbs. combined with MHW sub zero parka, sleeping mat and a light bivy you can have a solid shelter for about 4 lbs. this bag compress's down to the size of a Nalgene bottle. plus i can use it for spring/summer climbs when i have to camp at the base of the route.

Why wouldn't you buy this sleeping bag?

Under two pounds, warm, and I can fit it inside a Nalgene. Why wouldn't I want this bag? I regret not buying it earlier. The only thing I see being a problem is the outer layer of the bag ripping. With being careful I don't think it should be an issue.

It worked just great on a wispy 34 degree Sespe wildernes night, Packs down super small and fits perfect in a small 36L pack for fast packing. I love it and it's worth every penny.
I love this sleeping bag, it packs so small and is so light that i don´t even recognize it in my backpack! But with a bivy bag it keeps me warm even in cold and wet conditions! My first choice on several day mountain runs!
