I took this bag outfor the first time in late december for a couple of nights. Temps only got down to about 15 degrees with strong winds. I paired this with a thermarest z lite sol and a big agnes insulated q core bag. I slept with base layers and a hat on and was plenty warm. I wanted a light weight bag and the decision was between this one and the western mountainering bag. In just a couple of minutes I was able to compress it to fit it in the sleeping bag compartment of a 65L pack. Its got a lot of down and a lot of loft. I also spilled a small amount of water on it and the water beaded up and i was able to wipe away. It has not leaked any down as of yet. I am pretty confident it will perform in colder conditions. The zipper does snag pretty easily which is the biggest drawback i could find. All in all i'd recommend it as a lightweight, warm, winter sleeping bag.
How does Brook Range Drift -10 compare to Valandre Bloody Mary temperature . The Bloody Temperature rates on the net is from 30 degree to 5 degree all the way down to -22 degree. How can I tell what the true ratings are?.
Irving sorry for all the confusion surrounding the temperature ratings. So the Valandre Bloody Mary has a comfort rating of 30 degree and a lower limit rating of 5, like you said. This means that you will be most comfortable using it in 30 degree temps but, would survive if it got as low as 5 degrees but, you certainly wouldnt be comfortable. I need to try and contact Brooks Range to see where this one falls but, the -10 rating seems to be in the middle. You would survive if it dropped lower than that but, it will also be more comfortable in a 0 degree setting. They both use the same quality of down at 850 fill. The Drift -10 is filled with 36 ounces and the Bloody Mary only has 21 ounces so the Drift is definitely warmer.
