Needed to replace some old BPA-filled Nalgenes so go two of these for free with my FB coupon! Got them in two days, sweet. Other reviews said the paint on the bottles scratches so I picked the plain metal ones with blue and green tops, no issues and the plastic tops/threads work just fine. Happy that I can carabiner them to my pack for BPing trips too. I washed it once and don't notice any bad tastes either.

I've only used this bag once so far but am so excited that I slept through the night and didn't wake up cold. I backpacked to 11,800' near Colorado's Mt. Evans in July and was definitely glad for the extra warmth. I used a 2" sleeping pad so that probably helped with the insulation. This bag was roomy enough for me to turn on my side and even sleep on my stomach without feeling trapped. I thought the draft collar would annoy me but actually was quite nice. I was happy the "regular" had a little extra room at the bottom for me to keep my clothes warm down there for the morning (I'm 5'9" and burrow into my sleeping bags.). This bag is a little on the bulky side but I was able to jam it into my backpack and still had room for all my usual gear. I will probably upgrade to a down bag when my budget allows but this is definitely a great deal for the price.
