I'm in Alaska an I've had the bag for awhile now. Its a great bag for backing. It packs small, not heavy at all an keeps me warm. I sleep in a hammock in the summer time, when I do this with this bag I don't need to put my sleeping pad it the hammock. This bag works just fine. I got it at the end of last winter an was only able to use it once in the snow, but it kept me warm. My feet even stayed warm because of how tight the bag is.
