User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Phantom 15°
Fill: 800 Fill Down
Temperature Rating: 15 Farenheight
Weight: 2lbs 2oz
Price Paid: $330
For this bag's latest test, I just came back from a trip to the Big Sur area of California. During Thanksgiving night the temperature dropped to the mid 30s and I was nice and warm. Next day, it rained till noon and while tentbound the sky blue color of this bag really cheered things up.
Zipper did snag a bit, but overall it was a great bag. 3/4 zipper was easy getting used to since it allowed for much quicker exit than half-lengh zippers. Amazingly, this bag fit me incredibly well. It was perfect at the upper body, but most importantly for such a "narrow cut" bag, the leg area was very roomy, allowing my knees and legs to freely move around.
My only complaints are that the actual weight was 3oz heavier than stated (2lbs 2oz) and bag does not seem as warm as my Marmot Pinnacle, though it is 9oz heavier. Also, this bag's loft WASN'T 6 inches as stated by MH, but 5 inches in most areas and higher in the footbox.
All in all, great bag, but for the price I would try looking for a Western Mountaineering sleeping bag. Would have purchased the Megalite if I knew WM existed before buying this bag 1.5 years ago.
