Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: received it as a personal gift

Summary

Truly the most comfortable bag one could ever sleep in, plus it's pretty damm sexy as well... Did I just say that?

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Roomy
  • Packable
  • Full length zipper
  • Built-in pillow
  • Vertical baffles

Cons

  • Price

I must admit when I first saw this bag at REI for the first time I fell head over heels. Three months later I got it for Christmas and had to test it out immediately.

So, for her first outing I took her up to Jerky Meadows in the Golden Trout Wilderness where the temp was around 14 degrees. My first night after a couple of scotches was pretty much as I expected.... Heavenly. I don't remember waking up once in the night to adjust myself or to put on extra layers just a good long night rest. The pillow that comes in the hood, even though small, still made a difference with a stuff sack with my jacket in it. 

Now I know a good bag is priceless, but when you see the price tag just try not to puke. I have to admit even though it was free I would not hesitate to pay full price for it. That's how bad ass she is.
