Used the -20 Wraith on Aconcagua. The sleeping bag is very well designed and comfortable. I am 5' 8" and the regular size fit well. I often have cold feet while sleeping and this bag was exceptional for keeping the lower extremities warm on the coldest nights at 19,200'.
The only issue was the zipper. It was somewhat difficult to close or open due to the fabric getting caught. With use this seemed to improve or possbily I got better at using it!
A -20 degree bag was a bit of overkill on Aconcagua in January. A 0 degree bag probably would have been good enough except for maybe the highest camp.
I would recommend this product.

First of all, it's a great bag that will keep you super warm. Slept in 0 degree F conditions for two nights, and was sweating.
I did find the neck baffle and the zipper both frustrating. With the neck/shoulder baffle cinch chord, it would sit behind my right shoulder blade, making finding it frustrating. With a thinner sleeping pad, I could also see that being very uncomfortable.
Additionally, the zipper is just too hard to operate. The ability to zip the bag from inside or outside is nice, but the zipper just requires an extreme amount of pull to move it, making it hard to get the bag closed or open. This seems excessive given the internal zipper baffle and the DryQElite flaps that ensure the bag retains maximum heat.
It is a great bag, very warm, and I do recommend it.
I would recommend this product.
