WARM

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Kept me warm well into the teens. Only tried it once so far. Definitely lofty! It's the bag on the left of the picture. Kind of hard to see (wasn't focused on taking gear pics at the time...), but there it is. Very warm. Not tons of foot room, but not too constricting either. I'm 5'11 and the length of the long was ideal for backcountry skiing, allowing me to shove my boot liners and some other stuff down at the bottom without feeling too cramped.

Enjoy!

I'm 5'10", 155lbs with size 12 feet and am wondering If i should get this bag n regular or long. Primary use will be winter camping on multi-day back country tours in the Sierras. Yes a warm bag for the sierras but I sleep cold and hope to venture on to other winter ranges. Thinking the long will provide space for water bottles / boot liners but is wondering if that will be to long. Trying to avoid $400 mistake :)

thanks
Scott

There is a simple fix to those zipper problems. Zip it up, take a candle and run it lengthwise along the zipper to lubricate it. Unzip it zip it back up and you should be good to go.

Great Bag, Terrible Zipper

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this bag, warm and light and I get goose bumps every time I take it out to use it. Sadly though as at least one person already wrote, the Zipper snags every time. It would easily get 5 stars if it weren't for this problem. I plan on keeping my bag for the reasons above, and am sure to be frustrated in the future. Debated if I should give 3 or 4 stars, but I gave it 4 because I'm still keeping my bag.

Mountain Hardwear, please wakeup and fix this problem! Then if you would be so kind as to send me a replacement, I'd gladly sing from the roof about how wonderful this bag is and give it the 5 stars it deserves.

Zipper is sadly horrible..

  • Gender: Male

I wanted to make this bag work but could not deal with the zipper. Super light down bag, compresses to nothing, great loft and fit to the bag. Sleeps super warm. I badly wanted to make this bag work but the zipper is a huge problem. Snags almost everytime and isn't easy to fix. If they could fix the zipper, this bag would be perfect but until then, i'd save your money.

SO TRUE!!! GREAT BAG, ZIPPER IS TERRIBLE.
Like whip11462 said, snags EVERY time. Sad because it's a great bag. I'm still going to keep mine because it's super light weight and warm, but I expect to have many moments of frustration. Oh well.

Responded on

Although the zipper is bad, the bag is so amazing and with the sale price i got it, i decided to keep the bag. and gonna trip the candle wax trick to see if it helps

Warm, light

What else do you need in a o degree bag? This bag has held up well with extended use, with minimal feather loss. The shell material has held its DWR coating and sheds morning condensation remarkably well. It's worth buying a waterproof eVent dry-compression stuff sack to get this bag to its smallest, and with that it can get remarkably small for a zero degree bag.

Pluses -- Light, accurate warmth rating (compared with other brands, it feels about right), quality construction
Minuses -- It's expensive, but the price is certainly within reason compared with other brands of this quality.

Responded on

How about the zipper? was it any time a problem for you? Does it snag often?

Responded on

Like any sleeping bag zipper, it only gets stuck when I really, really have to go to the bathroom. In reality, it's a YKK zipper and it gets stuck about as much as any other bag I've used.

Crazy Warm

Bought this bag for mountaineering and ski touring because I dread a long cold night with a bag that isn't warm enough. This one might actually be too warm for California temps, even in midwinter. Zipper is well designed and the baffling keeps the heat in just fine. The long size is perfect for me (6'3").

Super warm!

This bag is ridiculously warm...and that says a lot coming from a girl who is always cold! I took this bag up Kilimanjaro with me and had to sleep with it unzipped every night until it got below freezing. I'm 5'10" and have a regular size bag which was plenty to put pretty much all my clothes in. My only two complaints were 1. I was so warm that I woke up every morning with mad amounts of condensation on the top of the bag, it would be soaked. I'd dry it the best I could, pack it away and then lay it in the sun the next camp we got to. 2. There is so much loft around the shoulders and neck that the zipper got stuck for me a lot. It was fine if you were paying attention...but when you are groggy at 2am and trying to get out to use the bathroom, it was easy to get stuck!

When it got into the single digits at night I would put a hand warmer in the bag by my feet and they stayed nice and toasty...no bag on the planet would keep my feet warm without it!

What are the EN ratings for this bag?

What are the EN ratings for this bag?

Responded on

Anodos. Many manufacturers in the sleeping bag world don't give bags 0 degrees and below EN ratings. This is due to the methodology of the testing process which diminishes the accuracy of the results. So, as to not give bad info to our customers these ratings are not published. Some manufacturers do give EN ratings to 0 degree bags... but, most do not and you won't find any EN ratings on really low temp bags. I hope this info helps!

ps. I have a Phantom Zero and have used it alpine climbing in Peru in very cold temps and been happy!

So, I'm 6' and weigh 190. I'm not sure if I sould go for the regular size or long. I like to have a little wiggle room when sleeping but don't need too much... I'm not sure how snug the regular is and if it would be worth just getting the long?? Whats my best bet?

Responded on

Luke,
Alot of folks go for the long so that they'll have room in the bottom for water bottles, boot liners, extra clothes, etc., to protect them from freezing. If you'll be using this bag on multi-day trips, that might be something you want to consider. As far as the fit of the regular, I'm about the same size and can fit into a regular Mtn Hdwe bag, however, I haven't tried the Phantom in particular

Can this bag be zipped together with another bag?

Responded on

Ellora. The Phantom does have a full length zip and will zip together with any other bag that has the same sized YKK zipper. So, best bet would be to mate two Phantom's together... but, outside of that any bag that has a similar zip should work. I hope this info helps!

Where does the goose down come from? I.e. What country?

Best Answer Responded on

MHW's down is certified to be from European gray geese. Their specs don't mention a specific country of origin, but the majority of European down comes from Eastern Europe (Finland is a pretty major supplier to the industry), and can vary considerably in quality.

the phanthom

have not used this in super cold temps yet, only temps around 20 degrees and it was super toasty. great bag, and the material feels quality. as a note the regular height is 78 inches not 72 inches, however even at 5'7" I feel that the little extra room is great for putting boot liners and anything else that you need to dry. looking forward to taking this down to 0.

Warm and Super Light

So this thing is light. It packs down not much smaller than the stuff sack it comes with, but if you're using a 50L+ backpack, it fits nicely at the bottom of your pack, laying horizontally. Now on to the warmth factor: It's very. I sleep cold and was almost sweating in 15 degree cold and wind. I had to sleep with this thing unzipped. When zipped all the way up, you can cinch everything down to where only your mouth is exposed so this thing could withstand cold well below 0 if needed. The Euro Rating System has ranked this bag at -27 to keep you alive, so a 0 rating is ultra conservative.

The baffling, workmanship, and down are all top quality. I've used the Grizzly GWS 0 degree Western Mountaineering bag and I prefer the Phantom bc it's just as warm and has a much better hood. The WM hoods are bush.

Get this bag! It will keep you hot when it is Sub Zero and will last you at least 7 seasons with very regular usage. Lastly, it doesn't leak down like everyone says. Mine has been awesome! And YES, there is a zipper pull inside the bag for you to open and close with ease. This is the best 0 Degree bag out there.

Responded on

Absolutely correct on the hood design and it's importance in cold conditions. Hard to believe that Western Mountaineering, considered to be the best down bag maker, uses the cheapest hood design.

Money Bag

Very warm for how compact-able and light weight it is! I've used this for winter camping over the past season and I fell in love with it during out first night together. I'm 6'2" and there was plenty of room in the Long even once I stashed boot liners in the bottom and a few layers i needed to dry out through the night. It's a comfy mummy, not restricting like some. The neck baffling is really cozy and allows you to keep your face warm without breathing into your bag making it damp. My worry was that this bag would 'pack out' a lot and loose it's warmth, but it's nice to find that isn't the case. There are very few pieces of gear I find that aren't in need of some improvement, but I really can't find any issues with this bag.

Warm & Light

I've had this bag for a couple of years now. A 0 deg bag was overkill for me, at the time, but it was a good deal and I didn't know how cold I'd eventually go. I live and play around VT.
The bag is very light for its temp rating. The shell has not torn or worn despite its delicate texture. I do not have down poking through at all. The zipper has thick smooth nylon around it which limits catch. I use a waterproof compression sack that did not come with the bag.
I have been out in below freezing temps with this bag, but never down to the single digits, always in a tent or shelter, and always with a ground mat. This thing has kept me very warm. Above freezing the zippers stay open. The loft meets all expectations for a quality down bag. The head baffles are simple and effective. A small non intrusive pocket for headlamp etc.
Conclusion: great backpacking cold weather bag.

Responded on

I've had this bag for about a year. It's super light and super warm. I was climbing with a group when the temp dropped into the low 20's. Everyone else said they had a 0 degree bag and they were cold. I was way too hot and had to unzip to regulate the heat. I'll be doing some more winter mountaineering this year so I can test it out in some colder weather. So far it's been a great bag but then again it had better be for the price.
