How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I bought mine last winter and have been using it since then. I'm a woman,5'5" 130lbs size 2-4 and tend towards feeling cold, live in the cold/wet Pacific Northwest. I think the sleeping bag is just the right size for me. I use this sleeping bag typically with an Exped Downmat 7 beneath it for camping on snow. I am warm enough with those to be naked or in a light baselayer in temperatures down to 15 degrees. If it's over 30, I have to leave it unzipped, but really- bring a less toasty bag if it's that warm. I haven't slept in it with temps below 15 since that hasn't come up yet, but I would probably add some clothing and/or a sleeping bag liner/warmer mat. The zipper is easy to catch, so you need to pay attention when you use it in the middle of the night- feel carefully in the dark or use your headlamp. I think this is because the zipper is small to save weight. There are two small inner pockets around the draft collar that I can put a headlamp, earplugs or light hat/glove liners into. The sleeping bag has gotten damp a couple of times, esp when camping in the open (no tent) or in my tarp (condensation) but it does dry quickly in the sun. I was worried about this being down and the damp NW but so far so good.
I would recommend this product.
