Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this and compared at home the Stoic Somunus sz 15, the north face superlight 0 degree bag. The marmots material inside and outside are not as soft and confi as any of the others which use the soft pertex water resistant material; however it has the same weight as the Stoic and it is lighter than the north face superlight. North face is supposed to be warmer though and it is 4 season, however I am not willing to carry another pound when I mostly use it in the 3 seasons. The insulation at the neck and nose convinced me that this is a better bag than the stoic. Marmot has extra insulation and tightening loops at the neck to seal the cold air out as well as another loop that you can tighten around your face or nose. This helped to stay warm in the Sierras where my water bottle started freezing. No cold air entered the bag when I moved around at night. I completely sealed out that. I don?t think I could do that with the Stoics simple one loop design. Also the marmot long has more wiggle room at the foot and the hips and felt like it has more down in it. Since I put my clothes in the bag to keep them warm I have more room left in the marmot. The zipper snags if you are not used to it, but there is away to use it without sagging if you practice a bit. Also the zipper glowed in the dark. I love the hood it can hold your pillow too. I think for the price between $220 - $260 it is one of the best bags out there. It is not water resistant so I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. I bet this would be the next thing they will upgrade in the future.
