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
Super duper lightweight
Unbelievably light and compressible. Can't wait to test this out once the mercury goes above zero. The zipper is definitely easily snagged, but the other benefits of weight, size, and quality can't be stressed enough.
"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).
