it depends.

for long term in the field use, i would suggest using a 30 to 45 degree synthetic sleeping bag as an overbag, or get a cottage manufacturer quilt in the same degree range. This will not only add degrees to your 0 degree down bag, but more importantly, moisture from your body prespiring at night will be trapped inside the synthetic instead of the down bag, which is easier to manage, dry, etc.. if you put a synthetic inside your 0 degree down bag, the odds are that your moisture will cool down passing through the synthetic, and freeze inside the down bag, which will cause problems after continous days of use and cause clumping eventually which will make you have to wash the entire bag.

in a pinch, perhaps for a day or two, you could use this as a liner though without any negative consequences to your down. It should add around 7 degrees to your rating.

i would only use this as an overbag for moisture management in extreme cold situations, and not rely on it that much for temperature boost, hence me suggesting a warmer synthetic for that.

It looks like, from the photo's, that at the bottom where you can put your sleeping pad, that those straps are very short. Has anyone who owns this had problems with big pads being able to fit?

Also i can't tell from the photo, but on the front compartment, does the zipper go all the way down on one side, or is it just a short zipper accesss from the top? Also, it doesnt look like there is a very big pocket on the lid. How big is it? Does anyone have any clue or guess at how many L the main compartment can hold - not inlcuding all the pockets?
