I've used this bag twice and both times I was disappointed. Both times the temps got down to mid to high 30's but I was not warm and tosty like my other 2 Marmot bags. I don't know exactly what the problem was, but I was disappointed in it's performance. I own a lot of Marmot products and this is the 1st time their bag has not kept me warm, I have a Marmot Atom 40* bag that I can take down to the low 30's and be warmer in it than in the Arroyo. I'm only keeping it because I got a killer deal and I'll end up using it for an extra summer bag for my friends.

Just got done using this shovel on a 3 day 2 night backpacking snow trip. It worked flawlessly, even in single digit temps the handle still came apart and went together no problem. I like the nice big surface area, light weight, and bright green color, makes it easy to find in the snow. The only thing that would make it even better would be a longer handle, but for the weight and price you can't beat this little shovel. As always great service from the gang at Backcountry.

I just tried this shovel out this last weekend 3-13-2010. Temps got down to single digits and we had 15" of snow one night. The shovel worked flawlessly, never froze up and everyone wanted to use it. I had a Snow Claw on the last trip but the shovel works better, although heavier its more versatile. I also like the bright green color goes with my pack, and is easy to find in low visibility conditions. The only con would be that it is a little short and the handle doesn't collapse into the shovel for storage, but for the weight and how it performs I really can't complain. LOVE THIS LITLE SHOVEL !!
