I really like the quality and the feel of this bag. But, and that's a big "but," for a "three season" bag, this is just not very warm.
For a little bit of context, when at home, I am a very warm sleeper. My wife has a thick quilt on her and I might have a sheet. I've used this bag while backpacking from Montana to Utah to Japan and I'm just not impressed.
I actually have a lot of other Marmot gear, tents, jackets, etc., and I love all of it. This bag, however, should be rated at 45 degrees at best.

By combining lightweight goose down and synthetic insulation, Marmot has created the award-winning Fusion bag--it delivers the best of both worlds! Using the great features of down and the protection of a synthetic, Marmot has created the new Fusion bag--delivering the best of both worlds.

Six-Baffle Hood envelopes your head in warmth, while the Face Muff allows hood to be cinched snug without digging into your face. Insulated draft tube backing the zipper seals cold out; zipper guards prevent snags. Draft collar features easy-access drawcord; locking, two-way zipper prevents bag from inadvertently opening during the night. Ground-level side seams eliminate cold air leaks. Trapezoidal footbox allows down to loft fully around your feet for optimum warmth and comfort. Roomy yet efficient cut provides better fit and warmth; vertical baffles keep the down from shifting. Outside stash pocket near top of bag conveniently holds night time necessities. Includes stuff sack and storage sack.
