So far so good.

Just bought this bag and did a trial run in my backyard with my two boys. Slept on a ground cloth and rain fly combo, so wind was able to still get in. Temp only got down to about 33F, but with the wind it was still pretty chilly. The bag was great. Loved how light it was and was surprised at all the loft. I had to strip off my fleece bottoms because I was literally roasting. I still struggle with mummy bags because of the more confined feel, but you can't beat the design for warmth. I'm a scout master and will be using it on numerous occasions in the upcoming months. I'll check back in tell you how it performs in real cold. I'm in SE Idaho, by the way. Getting below 0 degrees Fahrenheit is the norm during the winter.

So far so good.

Finally used it in a legitimate winter campout. Cold and snow with temperature around 15F. Slept warm and snug all night long. I sleep cold, so I through in a small fleece blanket just in case. As a scoutmaster, I've had my fair share of cold winter camp outs, and it is the best bag I've ever had in these situations.
