Extremely light and supremely warm.
- Highly breathable yet durable nylon ripstop shell helps expel moisture outside of the bag so it doesn't condense and collapse the down insulation
- Premium 800-fill down insulation is lightweight, traps in gobs of warmth, and retains its loft after repeated compressions
- Performance mummy cut maximizes warmth by providing a snug fit and reducing dead-air space
- Tight, five-inch baffling keeps down from shifting and developing cold spots
- Six-chamber hood, a draft tube, and a comfortable face gasket block drafts
- Single-handed cord operation simplifies adjustments
- Included stuff sack and storage bag

I recently bought this bag, and love it...
I recently bought this bag, and love it so far. One question: Is the stuff sac Water resistant? Obviously, the closure isn't Water tight, but it seems as if the fabric might be Water resistant?
Yes it is coated for some resistance but if you have major concerns about getting it wet I'd just get a dry stuff sack.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it fits snug (not too snug) for me and I'm 6 foot and a half inch and weigh 165. Super light, super compressible
warm light braggable.
My Mh phantom bag is sick. Its wicked light and compressible, i carry it more often than i should because it is so compressible. warmer than 15 degrees and comfy. nice job MH.
great bag, light weight
I bought this bag a few years ago and it paid off the first backpacking trip I took it on to Yellowstone. It snowed and I was real greatful to have such a warm bag. I have since taken it in the snow backpacking the Foothils trail winter 2012 and it has kept me really warm probably past the rating of 15 Great bag, light weight and worth the money.
Length Correction -
our description state's regular is for up to 6 ft 6, this is not correct. 6'6" will be the long model.
Best 15 Degree Sleeping Bag in my opinion, and here's why!
I have been a backpacker over 25+ years. I finally decided to purchase THE BEST 3 season sleeping bag on the market, bar none. After reading numerous articles and reviews, I narrowed it down to 3 finalists: Montbell UL Super Spiral Down Hugger #1, Marmot Helium 15, and the Mountain Hardwear Phantom 15.
Being a Backpacker Magazine subscriber for over 5 years(Excellent magazine) I was leaning towards the Marmot which has won the Backpacker Magazine Editor's Award. But then I found an excellent website which changed my mind: www.outdoorgearlab.com. It showed some of the most detailed reviews I've ever seen, and they are absolutely correct! Marmot has no neck baffle, which does not insulate the body from the cold air coming into the body area from the face opening. Also it has an unusually wide torso area which is good if you are a big stocky guy, but otherwise it is inefficient if you have athletic slender or medium sized body (I am 5'11" 155Lbs). Montbell is also excellent bag, but the hood design is pretty poor and I really dont' care about their stretching ability. It also adds few more ounces.
Finally there is one more bag out there, the most expensive Marmot Plasma 15 which costs $470, but it's way out of my price range.
So there it is, my final verdict is MH Phantom 15. And I love this bag! Backpacker Magazine just proved that they are not always right! :)
