I am very happy with my purchase of my Super Stretch. I sleep in all sorts of positions and I wasn't disappointed. On my first trip out with this bag it got down to 17 deg. F and the bag was comfortable. A good amount of condensation ended up on the bag from my tarp, and none of it made it in to me. The hood was easy to pull over my head and still leave room for my nose to poke out for fresh air.
The best part for me was the fact that I was warm within two minutes of crawling in the bag from the cold night air. My next sleeping bag purchase will be more from this line of bags.

I had a rectangular sleeping bag prior to purchasing this Montbell. I hated how much room it took up in my backpack, but other sleeping bags esp mummy bags just didn't have enough room for my feet/legs to move - I felt claustrophobic or constricted by them.
But this bag was great! Not only does it compress better to take up less space, the way it stretched accommodated every move I made, whether just pulling my feet apart, moving my legs, or even turning on my side. I didn't really have to adjust the bag like I did with my other one which would get all tangled or pulled aside as I tossed and turned.
It was hard getting used to the material as I'm used to cloth on the inside, so it did feel a little clammy to me at times, but overall it just kept me comfortable and warm. Would highly recommend and will probably buy a colder rated model if I do any winter camping.

I usually hate mummy bags, because I feel like I'm tied up when I'm in one. This bag is the exception. I can move more in this bag than I can in a rectangular bag. The stretch system is great and has held up well through over a year's hard use. The bag hugs to your body to help you stay warm, but doesn't squeeze or constrict you.
I've slept in tents and AT shelters in temps ranging from 35 degrees F to 90 degrees F and was very comfortable on all nights. The loft is amazing for how small this bag compresses. The fill material feels like down, but won't soak up water and stays warm even when the bag is wet. A great bag that I will buy again... if this one ever wears out.
