Perfect for me!
5 5

I love this bag. Its my first winter bag and feels like with the right care, will last a long time. Kelty's design for this bag is great for people who don't mind a little extra bag weight and would rather have the extra wiggle room. The picture above is accurate--it's not a traditional mummy cut, but it's a little tighter than rectangle bags. SOOOO comfortable when I used it in the Wisconsin winter, with temps ranging from -5 to 30 degrees. With a light insulating layer, a good sleeping pad, and a hot water bottle in a wool sock down by your feet--this bag is absolutely perfect for what I wanted. Even without the hot water bottle, the draft collar most certainly did it's job and I never felt the bitter air. Love the full zipper, the zip off hood, and the material of the bag. I also use it as a comforter in my cold-ass college house. It comes with a nice big storage bag AND a great compression sac. As an upgrade (if you're worried about a wet bag) I got a Sea-to-Summit eVent Compression Dry Sac, size medium, for this bag and it fit perfectly. Chest pocket is nice for your headlamp too. Overall--plenty of room for extra pillows, SUPER warm, and great fit for someone who likes to move in their sleep. Can't wait to use it again!

I just got the bag Wednesday, and used it Friday and Saturday for a weekend climbing trip. The weather sucked in WI, with rain (some of it freezing) and wind. Never ended up climbing, but this bag was my go to for a nap and night time. It's not too tight of a mummy cut, with some wiggle room, which is good for me because I move quite a bit at night. Used Thermarest Prolite sleeping pad to stay off the ground and the combination of the bag, the pad, and a light insulating layer of clothing and some wool socks kept me warm all through the 35 degree nights. I am a cold sleeper, so I didn't mind seeing my breath in the tent...and the bag did it's job. I say its a true 40 degree bag. It's pretty light for the price, compresses small--I fit it in a Sea-to-Summit eVent Compression Sac and used the size small which worked perfectly. I'm very happy with the bag after it's initial use, and definitely recommend for starters or broke college students like myself. The bag was tested in some nasty weather--cold and rainy--but I couldn't wait to crawl inside it the second night. Treat it right and it will last a while too. I got my money's worth.
