Set Phasers To Sleep.
There’s more to the Phase than warmth, though. It’s lighter than a feather (well, a whole mess of feathers), and has slightly stretchy baffles so you can comfortably work on your sleep-dancing. Marmot even hooked up an internal pocket, so you can have your light handy when you wake up in the wee hours needing to explore the woods.

- Q & A
"The Marmot Phase 30 . . . compared to the best-of-the-best bags . . . is still lighter weight, roomier, and more compressible . . . from every standpoint, this is one of the very best sleeping bags currently available". Having now purchased one from Backcountry, I agree with this quote from Outdoor Gear Lab.
Zipper: The tiny zipper snags easily. You have to be careful, but it doesn't look like it will break. Personally, I'd rather have a tiny 3/4 length zipper on an UL bag then a larger 1/3 length zipper.
Comfort Range: For me this was critical. I have now spent a night in this bag at an inside tent temperature of 32F (0C) with NO ISSUES. (Male, no socks, only shorts + a quick-dry shirt, mat rated at R8).
