User Review: EMS MM 20
Fill: 600 fill down
Temperature Rating: 20dF
Weight: ~3 lbs
Price Paid: $200
Years ago, I got a clearout former rental bag for $20, and 180+ nights later, it is still great!
The down is very good for 600, and the microfiber shell is much more wind- and water-resistant than DWR nylon.
I work at a high-end gear shop now, and have access to (and own) nicer gear, but the MM20 is still a very sweet bag. Unlike almost all "shop-label gear", it holds its own against the top of the line stuff.
To get a bag this good from most manufacturers, you would pay much much more. And with EMS frequent price promotion (ahh, the advantage of a huge chain store) you could do even better.
Basically, I consider it the cheapest among the great high-end down 20s, and by far the most bag for the buck in the low $200 range. (It is a better buy than the Blue Kazoo, a solid benchmark bag in its own right)
After a year at the shop, I am pretty critical of gear, but I give this bag a very solid recommendation. If I had to pay retail, it would be my undisputed first choice in a 20.
