Marmot Lithium Membrane Sleeping Bag

After researching several bags I decided on the Marmot Lithium Membrane 0 degree bag as my second bag to use during the winter months. I have another brand bag rated for 15 degrees but find I need to add additional fleece layers for 35 degree temps so decided on this 0 degree Marmot bag . I wanted the water proof membrane version due to occasional condensation a tent can get while camping in colder temps. I have used this bag twice since buying it this month and have ben very happy with it. The first trip was snowshoeing at Mt Rainier, temps dropped to zero that night with 35mph winds. I wore a very light fleece pant and a medium fleece top and stayed warm all night and the membrane did great to shed the condensation I had in my tent by my feet. The bag is comfortable, light weight and was able to get it compressed down fairly small with a compression stuff sack. I am 5' 10" and had plenty of length. Very happy with bag, see picture of Tatoosh Range from my base camp at Mt Rainier Dec '11. Todd Mortensen
