This is one of the most fantastic sleeping bags i have seen.

It is a little pricey, but not comparatively to other bags of this warmth and weight. It is true to its weight claims and compresses well for such a warm bag.

Its unique elastic baffles give you the reassurance of space, which is good for all those claustrophobics out there like me, but keep the bag close to you to eliminate cold areas.

I was a bit skeptical about the stretch factor at first. I thought it sounded like a gimmick, but it is actually great!

I haven't yet tested this bag to its limits, but from use so far I would say it will have no problem keeping me toasty right down to 0F.

A nice little bonus, although they don't mention it, if you get a left zip and right zip you can easily join them together to make a cozy pod for you and your partner.

The only downfall I would say is that it is not very waterproof and you may find the bottom of the bag gets quite damp from the condensation on the tent. It does dry very quickly, but is an unfortunate side effect from the lightweight (but seemingly strong) outer fabric.

I am a cold sleeper and my feet are usually cold when sleeping in most bags. My feet stay perfectly warm in my MontBell bag. Although spendy it is worth the price. Its compressibility is wonderful taking up minimal space in your pack. The foot box at the end of the bag has a drawcord so you can compress the foot space minimizing the air space around your feet. I have used it during the summer up around 12000 feet, and just leave it unzipped if I get to warm. Best bag I have ever owned, with great craftsmanship.

Slept out 5 nights in a row, the low temps were around 6f to about 12f. I slept in my base layer and was fine. The worst part is getting out to go to the head. But in seconds this bag warms right up when you get back in it. Feet stayed very warm. Even when damp they dried out by morning. Packs so small. I plan on testing this bag down to -25f. I'll let you know how it goes.

I love this sleeping bag and have added it to my regular rotation depending on the conditions. It is warm and as compressable as my 25 degree bag. The elasticised stretch baffles give the bag a roomy feel while remaing close to your body. My only regret is that I wasn't able to get a left hand zipper, if left hand zip is even available.

I would strongly recommend this bag.
