Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Design: semi-rectangular
Fill: supposedly 700 fill down
Temperature Rating: 32 degrees F and above
Weight: 2.96 pounds with stuff sack provided
Price Paid: $126

Bought this on clearance from altrec.com. I have the goose down version. $126. altrec didn't charge shipping fees or tax. the first thing that strikes you about the bag is the lack of loft. The bag is rated at 23 degrees. This is optimistic to say the least. the second key thing is the weight. Ihe long version that I have is supposed to be 2 pounds 5 ounces. My bag in the stuff sack weighs 2.96 pounds, significantly more than advertised.

Having said all this, the bag is a good buy. When used in temps above freezing, the bag performs as advertised. Converting the bag into a jacket means you can leave your warm jacket at home. wearing the bag/jacket around camp is a real plus. in recent years, i've tried to buy gear that serves more than one function as a weight saving measure. The wallcreeper fits the bill nicely.

Design: rectangular

I am a cold sleeper, but can't stand the confinement of a mummy bag, wanted light weight, so I chose this bag. It is a clever design, with some fun, handy features (the zippers for freeing your arms are great), but I froze in it at 45 degrees with layers of clothing on underneath.

I found the hood and neck to be claustrophobic, but necessary to retain heat, and the velcro around the neck uncomfortable around my chin/face/neck. I am offering it to a friend who says that he sleeps like a furnace. I also think that its versatility as a long jacket is a great idea, but dangerous and useless near fire. If you are a hot sleeper, it could be just the ticket.

Design: mummy modified
Fill: 700
Temperature Rating: 25 degree
Weight: 2lbs4oz
Price Paid: $120

I bought mine for hammock camping, bought it at backcountry gear a close out item. The shell is pertex quantum, microfiber lining, 700 fill down, not a very lofty bag for being rated at 25 degrees, narrow girth, approx 60 in.

Manufacturer's weight is 1lb 14oz. I weighed it at 2lbs and 4oz. Have not used this bag yet, am very skeptical about using it.
