Fill: Polarguard 3D
Temperature Rating: 30 F
Weight: 2.5 lbs
Price Paid: $175
This is a great warm weather bag. It weighs next to nothing and stuffs very small. The "crazy legs" feature is a great addition, giving your legs a little more room. It has a nice warm hood, and a comfortable lining. The temprature rating of 3O degrees F is a little optimistic in my opinion. I have slept in it very comfortably when the temprature was in the low 40's however. Also, I would have expected zipper pulls on both the inside and outside of the zipper on a bag of this quality. Otherwise, this is a great bag.

Price Paid: $165
While the quality of the bag is fine, I must say that even the men's long version is not for you if you wear a coat larger than a 42 or 44. I have had to purchase two of the bag expander tubes and I wear a size 48 coat. This has caused a $165 bag to suddenly become a $275 bag. If you have a large chest size, this bag isn't for you.

When the temperature drops, you simply reduce the bag's girth by zipping up the draft tube.
