Have used the Phantom 15° since 2011. Winter, spring, summer and fall conditions in the Sierra. Bag is warm, fits comfortably and packs down small. I sleep on my side and still find this bag gives me sufficient room.
Sub 15° on a winter ascent of Mt. Whitney's Mountaineer Route and the bag was perfect temp while wearing a base layer. I find this bag too warm during summer trips in the Sierra even when above 10,000ft - usually sleep with zipper fully down with one leg in and one leg out.
As with every MHW sleeping bag the zipper gets annoying when you're not careful about zipping it up in the middle of the night. Small price to pay for a 2lbs 15° bag at the price point.
Highly recommend this bag if you don't want to break the bank! The Taffeta lining on the inside I find more comfortable then the Pertex used in competitors bags. No cold spots experienced. Extremely high loft!
I would recommend this product.

I have the previous version of this bag (sans Q-Shield) and have been very happy with it. I'm particularly pleased with it's cut. I'm 6' tall and ~170 lbs. I can comfortably layer up for winter alpine trips (belay jacket & insulated pants) and take this bag's range down to zero easily. I also don't find it overly big when just in my skivvies.
I do agree with previous reviewers that the zipper gets stuck. I have learned to live with this as I've never owned a bag where this wasn't the case. Fix the zipper & this bag earns the full 5 stars.
I'd pull the trigger on this bag again. Especially with the Q-shield down at no added weight. Nice work MH.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased my Phantom 15 about three years ago. (Red and Slate) I must say it is one of the most comfortable cold weather bags I have ever owned. That being said, there are two glitches for me: 1. The zipper sticks and it's annoying in the middle of the night. 2. The 15 degree rating is a bit generous. Wear your thermals and a good watch cap in any weather under 20 deg. I would recommend it to a friend but with the two cautions. Thanks
I would recommend this product.

This is an amazingly warm and comfortable sleeping bag. This is my first impression after one camping trip. With the night temperatures in low 40s to high 30s, I didn't need any base layer, and didn't even bother to zip this bag up.
The material is very thin, and one should be careful while handling this bag. I hope it will last a long time.
And one more thing to mention - apparently, I've got a previous version of the bag, one that is red "lava" in color. But the discount that I had made it a perfect purchase.
I would recommend this product.
