So the last few months I decided to live out of my car, in Denver, Colorado, and needed a bag to keep me warm. I did my research and filtered through 50 bags or so and decided on the Valandre Blue. I've been sleeping nearly every night for 4 months in this bag and it is a near flawless bag. Plenty of space for layers or a liner, it has a very pleasant smell, a huge plus, the stitching is tight and the loft is fantastic, I spent a week at -5 to 0 degree weather and slept soundly and at no time felt cold, cool definitely, but not uncomfortable. This bag is large and hard to pack, and has some weight to it, but when it comes to tough weather, I trust this bag. It will take time getting used to the bag, it has some confusing velcro and draw strings, but in due time it all makes sense, when it got down to -5, I sure was happy to have them to tighten the hood around my head and to block the cold from entering into the body of the bag. This bag is the creme de la creme, the master of the elements, the king of cold weather. This bag is worth its weight in gold and is well worth the 4 months of rent and utilities it saved me. I've got only good things to say about this bag.
