Outstanding but not quite a 15
Bought this bag in 2012. I love it. It's extremely light and packable and has the comfort of high- thread- count sheets. I've used it three times on winter trips and, in my opinion, it's about 10 degrees overrated. However, I like the bag well enough that I'm thinking of having down added.
Overall very nice bag.

This bag is awesome. Really warm, packs really small, weighs little, super comfortable hood, and looks cool too. I had heard before I purchased that the zipper is delicate. Although I haven't had any issues to date, I would agree that the zipper does feel like it would give way if put under serious stress. So I have been a little careful, and I havent had an issue. On the plus side, the zipper doesnt get caught on the surface fabric at all.
We camped on a ledge about 6 pitches up on Infinite Bliss, up in Washington state. Our plan was to get up real early and get a jump on the rest of the climb. Unfortunately, due to alarm malfunctions, we ended up waking up around 10 and pretty much negating any advantage of sleeping on the route. But it was still great.
Great bag. Perfect for higher-altitude 3-season backpacking. I've spent about 20 nights in this bag from spring to fall, and have never been cold. Minimal down leakage and I really like the draft collar. Had to wash it due to a cat pee incident (somehow they know to find your most prized possessions and pee on them) and I can personally attest to how difficult it is to saturate this bag with water, even in a bathtub. However, once it gets soaked through, it will stay that way for a long time.
All the materials are extremely lightweight, so you won't want to be dragging this bag across sticks and stones, but your back will be thanking you the next time you are slogging up a hill. It's very light and packs down very small.
Almost took a star off due to the price being out-of-market but that's not really the bag's fault. One other quibble: the zipper does stick, like with all sleeping bags. This can make it a little claustrophobic if you have it zipped up all the way.
If you can deal with the price tag, or you get it at a discount like I did, buy with confidence. Especially if you are trying to reduce your weight and bulk.
Does anyone know if the zipper has improved...
Does anyone know if the zipper has improved over the previous model?
