I love this bag. I found it on SAC for a super great deal, but the sale price here isn't bad either. If you compare the quality and features of this bag to any other on the market, you cannot beat this bag for this price. best deal around. hands down.

The bag is super lightweight and compressible. The 800-fill down is very nice and holds a lot of loft.

The bag material I have found to hold up very nicely. It seems to be a very fine grid rip-stop fabric. It is incredibly soft on your skin and very nice to sleep in.

I've also found this bag to be very warm, almost too warm for me because I tend to be a very warm sleeper.

I am 6' tall and 175 lbs. (I purchased the long) I find this bag to fit very well, with just enough room at the feet and around my body to stay warm and still be able to move around to get comfortable.

The front zip is a great feature that I like a lot. It allows for easy ventilation if you get too warm, and easy in-and-out if you want to sit up and do things in your tent, etc. I have had no trouble with the zipper staying in place. works great.

The hood and draw-strings work well for me. They slide easily and stay in place. lots of down all the way around the hood.

The inclusion of a storage bag and a compression stuff sack is awesome. both bags are very nice quality. the compression stuff sack works very well and it can actually hold a few additional items it you wanted to compress those down as well. the bag packs down very small and the straps seem to be very well made.

Overall I am very happy with my purchase. Like I said it is nearly impossible to find a bag of this quality, with these specs, for this price. (15 degree rating, 800+ fill down, included compression stuff-sack, rip-stop, super soft fabric, etc)

I dare you to find a better bag for a cheaper price.

I don't own these boots, But do have a pair of Bates with a Gore-Tex lining in them... I work in the fire service and I have flushed hydrants and stood in pools of water for long periods and remained completely dry. Here is a link to the boots I own in case you are curious. (http://www.zappos.com/bates-footwear-gx-8-gore-tex-side-zip-black). Gore Tex is great stuff.
