This is Duck Down and not Goose Down.
Backcountry.com should correct their description of this bag, because it is duck down and not goose down. From what I understand, this should make no difference in the quality of the bag, as duck down of the same rating as goose down performs about the same, but people should know what they're getting nonetheless.
Good Bag for a good price
Well so far I've only used this sleeping bag once and it wasn't actually very cold (probably got to just below freezing during the night). So I wasn't bundled up in it or anything. However, from my first impression this is a very comfortable sleeping bag. I especially like the wide-ish mummy style that gives room for some movement and gear to keep warm... Hopefully that doesn't sacrifice too much warmth! Ergnomically this bag has the drawcords in a convenient place, as well as a little pocket which I really like for keeping headlamp or whatever handy, and the side zipper has material along the sides to prevent it from getting stuck.
I've heard great things about Rab, somebody told me they're like the Arcteryx of the UK and from my experience and friends' experience with their products the only difference seems to be the price.
