Bought this bag while i was thru-hiking the AT during summer of 2011 ME-GA. Needed a lighter bag once i got out of the cold maine spring (started first day katahdin opened with a 20 degree). when to an outdoor store in nh and fell in love with this bag.
Super light weight and packs down to about the size of a nalgene. Was perfect for the rest of the summer/fall. Got a bit chilly up at 5000ft when it was snowing, but then again, maybe i should have packed more clothes. Besides those few nights, i was plenty warm. On the hotter nights, I used it more like a blanket, it worked ok that way.
Anyway bag fit is great, a bit snug but not cramped. Im 6' 175lbs, and im ok in it.
2 things that i wasnt wild about:
1. the double zipper was ok, but i would suggest taking one off the side and moving it to the feet. my other bag has a foot box zipper, perfect for warm nights!!
2. The draw string system is awkward, the hood and chin are different materials (one cord, one elastic) pick one and stick with it please.
Besides that, lasted 2,000 miles 130+days and has plenty more life in it!
I would recommend this product.

This is my second UL45 bag and they are awesome for ultralight backpacking excursions in mild temperatures. The weight and compressibility are excellent for a synthetic bag. The liner is comfortable and the shape of the bag is great for warmer temps for which the bag is designed. The zipper configuration takes some getting used to (kept looking trying to pull right side lower at night) and although it works, I would prefer a standard zipper to vent my feet better. The compression sack that comes with the bag is excellent! Overall stoked on this bag which is why I bought two of them over two seasons (one for clients/friends that come to TX with too warm a bag)
I would recommend this product.

This bag is TINY. I know I should write TINY in small letters but I want to emphasize how TINY it is!
It is also warmer than I expected. I used it for about 30 nights last summer/fall. It worked well. In the summer it was the perfect weight and warmth, almost too warm at some points.
I pushed it using it well into the fall and was only cold one night, and that was at 8100' feet and tempuratures around 28 degrees. I wouldn't want it any colder than that, I woke several times during the night, but I didn't freeze.
This bag has lived up to my expectations and beyond.
The only reason it didn't get five stars was the zippers. They had a tendency to get caught on the fabric around them which can be very annoying, especially at night when you have to get up and relieve yourself. Also, I had to take one star off for the simple reason that it is so light I wasn't sure if I packed it, which made me unpack my backpack a couple times to double check that it was still there! :)
I would recommend this product.
