Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have ordered this particular shoe twice. I normally wear a 10 in this brand shoe so got a 10 the first time -- really big, so went down to a 9.5 thinking surely that will be enough - still freaking huge. Such a dissapointment. I want the style of a sandle but with the mesh that will keep the debri out. And the laces are not the stretchy ones that keen usually has. The shoe does not have the flexibility or the give of the Newport or H2 keens, so thanks to Backcountry's great return policy, these have gone back. The search for the perfect shoe continues.

Okay, so we have only tested it this winter .... in Florida. Hey, it's been cold for us. Glad to report this bag is a little on the warm side for a Florida winter. That being said, we purchased 2 - one for each.

The 6foot bag - regular- would probably not fit someone 6 foot. I am just shy of 5-9" and my feet touch the bottom of the bag, like it was made just for me. My husband at just over 6 foot fits the 6'6" bag nicely, my 6'8" son could still get in it, just can't straighten his legs (big shock there) I expect it will keep me toasty on my mount kili trip.

Only beef so far is since it lofts so much, extra care has to be taken to keep the zipper from snagging the material.

I really hate being cold so got this liner to add warmth to my 30 degree bag. If It added 5 degrees warmth I would be surprised. Will be good at keeping the bag clean, and maybe okay on a warm Florida summer night when a bag is just too warm. Otherwise I found this useless for it's stated purpose.
It does fit nicely in the bag and doesn't restrict my movement.

The montbell hugger bags have a cinch at the bottom of the bag that allows you to shorten the bottom and get your feet all snuggly.

My understanding of down is the larger the number the more fill in the bag - The warmer it will be -800 being the best. We went to the montbell store in Boulder - these bags are the ultimate. My husband who hates a mummy bag wants this one!!
