I needed a synthetic bag for an arctic trip and liked the components of the Encampment bag. For an early August 10 day backpacking trip to the Yukon, it seemed ideal w/r/t weight, convenience, etc. It wasn't. The regular bag is short; Im 5'10" and my feet hit the bottom. More important, its cold. I did not buy the insulated aircore pad, which might have been a mistake. Nonetheless, below 30 degrees in a 2xwall tent with ALL my clothes on and I was freezing. Imagine it could be great for a weekend in the sierras, but not the system for cold nights sleeping on permafrost.
