Awesome bag for summer, sleeps warm down to temps below freezing. Super light, super packable. It is nice to have a draft collar on a 30 degree bag. The fit is nice too, a lot of minimalist bags are claustrophobic. This bag has a full length zipper and I sleep well in it (I'm 6'1" 220).
I've used it all over the Rockies, mostly just the summertime, but a few nights it got below freezing and I was totally warm. The bag breathes well, one night didn't get below 50 and I was not overheating.
All in all I'm very happy. I was hesitant to use a 30 degree bag for a long time because I don't like being cold, but once I switched, I won't add the 2lbs I'm saving back into my pack any time soon.
