I bought this bag for my last spring trip to Big Bend. My wife got the women's version called Couloir. They both are excellent sleeping bags.
Since I got the right-side zipper, we were able to join them together easily which was added benefit. I used a liner to keep the inside clean (recommended for all sleeping bags by the way) and I was quite warm in the bag alone and connected during 30°+F nights in the mountains. In fact, I would say this would be overkill during the summer, I had to open up the bag several times to get some air early in the evening.
I'm 6' tall and the regular sized bag was both roomy where needed and cozy when I curled up. This was my first down bag and you can tell the difference. It comes with a small trinket pocket which you can load with a handwarmer if desired (not that I've tried it or suggest it).
The zipper was way superior to anything I've used; I had no trouble with snags at all. I could see how zipping it the entire way around the face-area would keep you warmer but I didn’t have to test it yet. Did I mention how light this thing is?
I am planning on taking it into the Colorado mountains in early spring and will see how it performs in colder/wetter conditions. I'll post a second review when I return.
