Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not the lightest but quite durable and reliable. I fold it in such a way that I use it as pad for my back in my pack. From Mt Shasta to Mt Rainier, it has never let me down. One poor fellow on Rainier had punctured his ultra light sleep pad and did not sleep well. Everyone was jealous when I told them I got a comfy 4 hours sleep before summit run.
"Sleep well tonight, tomorrow could be rough!"

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am 6'1 and was comfortable on a two day spring climb of Mt Shasta, good room at the feet and bag fit me well. Bag kept me warm but I don't know what the temps were at night, prbly in the 25-30F range. Very light and packs down super small which is great. Didn't have any moisture issues and the bag seems to have some sort of DWR abilities, water beaded up on it when I put a few drops on it. Overall a great bag.

I've been using one of these for years as a midlayer/insulator while active on alpine climbs and for chilling around campsite in milder conditions. Not the best insulator when it gets colder than freezing but still very versatile. Very light weight and keeps warm when wet. The thumbholes are nice for keeping your hands a bit warmer when your gloves are soaked and its cold.

Used on a climb of Mt Shasta last year (May 2011). Woke up at 3:00AM at Bunny Flat, checked the phone and it showed outside temp to be reported at 9 degrees. I was warm and snug all night and the next night at Helen Lake. The bag is relatively lightweight for its price and packs well. Remember that when camping on snow, your bag is only as good as your sleeping pad. If you are sleeping directly on snow, knock off about 20 degrees of your bag's rating.
