This kept me warm down to a 25 degree night. It was roomy for my 5'9" frame. The only thing I did not like was how much i rolled and got twisted up. i rolled off my pad several times. I'll be sticking with Big Agnes for this reason. Otherwise a very solid and warm bag. It also packed down very small and the light weight was very good.

I used this bag on an elk hunt twice this past week. From very cold temps of 24-36 degrees it kept me very warm and was very comfortable. A tiny bit of condensation got on it at the foot of the bag, but it did not affect the warmth etc.The bag dried very quickly in the morning sun. I was pleased. I am planning on exchanging it for the Blackburn only to save weight and bulk in my pack. My knees are telling me every once counts. There is a half pound difference between the two, but if you are not worried about weight or bulk, this is an awesome 3.5 lb bag

I love the sleep system concept. However, this is the second bag from BA that has not held it temp rating for me. I started to feel cold at 40 degrees. A rare 31 degree night just this last week in August sent me back to my truck looking for the Horse blanket to cover up in this bag. Nice material, great as far as roomy, but the temp ratings are at least 20 degrees higher in BA bags. I am a cold sleeper, but I had to put on sweats, under armour 1st layer and a fleece jacket before I was warm. Purchasing a storm King and going out this weekend to the same spot. We'll see how it goes.
