Hi!! Does anyone know if this bag (or any other high quality one) is treated for allergies? Thanks!

Marmot has the best down in terms of being hypo-allergenic. They clean there down thoroughly. Hardly anyone is allergic to down itself but people with allergies to it are just allergic to the dust that is on it. Here is a link that may answer more of your questions on down allergies: http://marmot.com/sites/marmot.com/files/Tech%20Manual_10_FINAL.pdf.
Pages 25 and 26 will bring you to their sleeping bags and down quality.
But having said that if you think you might be allergic to down then go with something like the North Face Dark Star -40 sleeping bag.
