Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was looking to reduce my pack weight during a 2014 AT thru-hike. I thought I could drop my nearly 3 lb winter weight bag for a summer bag, even just for a few months. At first, I was thrilled with the great packability and light weight of this bag. But, I seriously froze my tush off every night, in 50-70 degrees (early June through late July)! I would wake in the wee hours and wrap whatever I had handy around my body to stay warm, and shiver my way to morning. This thing does NOT rate to 45 degrees. Additionally, I was annoyed to find that the material is so lightweight (um, cheap) that the seams were coming apart after only a month of use, and the velcro on the "pillow" pocket was creating pulls and holes in the bag fabric. BTW, the pillow pocket is useless, because it's so slippery. And on warm nights your face just sticks annoyingly to the fabric. Yuck, all around, a bad buy. I switched back to my winter weight bag in August and for comfort & durability vs weight, I did not regret it.
