User Review: Marmot Men's Helium
Fill: 900 fill down
Temperature Rating: +15
Weight: Just under 2 lbs
Price Paid: $350
This bag is awesome. It's light, compressible, big and warm. I have used this bag where it has gotten down to 7 degrees at night and I have always been toasty warm in it. Yes, it does live up to its +15 rating and surpasses it.
The only part of me that got cold was where the bag hit the bottom of the tent and where the sleeping pad did not cover there. So there is that to consider…cold weather camping requires a sleeping pad, but this is true with ANY down bag. I suspect the one negative review here was from someone unfamiliar with this fact.
All in all I am a big guy. 6 foot 1 and about 240 lbs. No part of the bag binds me like some others have. This is probably about the best full featured bag you can buy. Seriously. The only potential negative is the price…but hey you have to pay the most to get the best. Don’t forget this thing comes with 900 fill down. The best down available.
