User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Phantom 15°
Fill: 800 fill down
Temperature Rating: 15 degrees F
Weight: 1 pound, 15oz
Price Paid: $200
This bag's best feature is its warmth-to-weight ratio, although the 15 degree F rating is quite optimistic. I have experimented with all kinds of sleeping pads, layering, etc. and found this bag's rating to be more accurate at 20 degree F. If you are a cold sleeper, you MAY be able to stay warm with minimal layers at 15F, but for the average sleeper expect to be wearing long underwear and a fleece to stay cozy at 20F. With a weight under 2 lbs, it's hard to expect more from this bag!
Don't pay full retail for this bag as it's not worth it. Like posted before, if you have the money go with Western Mountaineering who can actually stand behind their degree ratings guaranteed.
This is a great 3-season bag that is superlight, but is overpriced and doesn't stand up to its degree rating.
