Feathered Friends is arguably the finest sleeping bag manufacturer out there. I have owned and spent many nights sleeping in Western Mountaineering, Marmot, TNF, Snowlion (any one remember them!?) and Mountain Hardwear bags and IMHO Feathered Friends is either no. 1 or tied for no. 1 with Western Mountaineering. WM makes a slightly lighter more compact bag for the temp rating but FF construction details are superb...well almost. The only flaw that I have experienced on the four FF bags I have owned is the infamous zipper snagging. I have modified my technique over the years to limit the occurance but it does happen from time to time.
The temp rating was a little on the low side for me but not by much and realistically your comfort level can vary throughout the night based on many factors. With a down jacket and fleece pants I slept in relative comfort at an unexpected -20. The fit is about spot on for me (5'9" 160) and even allowed my usual "fetal" position.
The only downside to a FF bag is that with care you will never wear it out so make sure you get what you need and want or you will end up with multiple bags. Not a bad way to go but it can get expensive. I still have a FF bag from 1973 that is still serviceable and has had a through hike of the PCT and hundred of other nights outdoors in addition to being my bedding for college.

This is an amazing bag! Comfortable, warm, completely wind and waterproof with the dryloft shell. It is a little pricey though. If you have the money, take a good long look at the Feathered Friends line of products, they have the best bags on the market.
