Here's what other sites are saying:
The Helium 600 down sleeping bag by Mountain Equipment showcases 50 years of experience in making down bags. They understand the needs of climbers and backpackers and it shows. Insulated with high-loft, premium 725-fill-power duck down for warmth, light weight and compressibility. Downproof and wind-resistant, the densely woven synthetic shell is light, compressible and tough; silky soft lining is also downproof and highly breathable. Durable Water Repellent finish on shell causes water to bead up and roll off. Ground-level side seams allow top layer to fully wrap around body and keeps draft tube in place, further helping prevent cold air from seeping through the zipper. Slant box wall baffle construction uses slanted walls for stability and thermal efficiency; construction keeps down from migrating, eliminating cold spots. 4-baffle trapezoid footbox is wide in toe area and narrow at the heels for comfort that does not compromise warmth. Protecting the head and neck, the hood features 5 baffles and an anatomic fit to provide warmth and low weight. Alpine Fit features a semi-tapered mummy profile with a tapered lower leg section to maximize warmth and minimize weight without restrictiveness. Single antisnag draft tube (along the 3/4 length zipper) and semi-floating neck collar drapes comfortably, blocking the escape of heat and sealing out drafts. Mountain Equipment Helium 600 sleeping bag comes with a lightweight stuff sack and mesh storage bag.

Why waste precious space in your pack with unnecessary materials. The Helium 600 +14 Down Sleeping Bag from Mountain Equipment is highly compressible and will leave you with plenty of room to spare.

The anatomically shaped foot box with a 4 baffle end allows your feet to rest comfortably without compressing the down so you stay warmer. A shaped hood and neck collar ensure that you retain as much heat as possible so you get a good night's sleep.
