How would you grade this itemʼs materials, construction and workmanship?
How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I really like this bag. It is super light and packs down to about 10 in x 5 in x 5 in, and is quite comfortable once well lofted. I am 5'3 and weigh 113 and this bag fits me well– a few inches of space lengthwise and a decent amount of space widthwise.
The most extreme condition I took this bag out in was tent camping in 26 degrees fahrenheit. I used a foam pad and a therm-a-rest inflated pad under the sleeping bag but had a cold spot on my bottom. I also put a fleece sweater over my feet, which kept them warm. I wore cold gear–top and bottom, a pull over, and the Ghost Whisperer down jacket and was okay for most of the night (it got cold but wasn't unbearable). I ended up putting a fleece blanket over my bag during the night. It wasn't the most comfortable sleep but it was still bearable.
I was perfectly comfortable while tent camping in 50 degree weather.
My greatest complain is that the synch cord slipped out and slapped me in the face. Now I can't get it back how it was before. The key to keeping warm in this bag is making sure that you synch the bag tightly around your face and sleep on your back, rather than your side, so that the heat doesn't leak out.
