Definitely warm, roomy.
- Gear pouch inside
- Includes compression bag
- Great when damp
Like everything Marmot makes ... it WORKS as described. It also packs a few extra pounds (see my review on my Marmot Swallow tent elsewhere ... totally worth the extra pounds) — each ounce of which is worth it.
Interior is roomy though, as noted, a little slip-slidey due to the fabric but this is a minor point. Nice zippered gear pouch inside. Dual side zippers are helpful for in/out without full unzipping. And zippers work pretty snag free, no real problems — even fumbling in the dark with cold hands.
Used it in the mostly-outdoor Guyot shelter in the Whites a couple weekends ago. 8 degree or less outside, without windchill and I was plenty warm ... even after an unfortunate accident with an unclosed water bottle I'd put inside it to keep the water from freezing, the synthetic is worth the weight and loft for that quality — no loss of heat I could see, and I spilled a good pint or so inside.
See my comment on compression — works fine. Just don't roll it ... wad it. I'm right at 6', and the 6'6" is essential, even without stuffing some clothes overnight in the toes, I think I'd have been cramped in the 6'.
