I used this bag for 8 months in Patagonia and it SUCKS. It was comfortable down to about 20 degrees. Below that and it is miserable. This bag has its place, and if you're aware of its limitations go for it.
Loses loft quickly. Yes it will be warmer than a wet down bag but it will be colder than other synthetic bags.
It is very, very heavy and is not very warm when wet and takes longer than any other bag I've used to dry. Does not pack down small and the zippers get stuck constantly. If you can't afford a better bag this is a great value but if you have the option to spring for a better bag you won't regret it. The only upside is that a friend was giving away a L zip and I had a R zip so it's possible to zip them together for a well you know...
