Design: oversize mummy
Temperature Rating: really cold to really warm
Weight: 8 pounds
Price Paid: gosh...expensive
This bag requires an entire shift in your way of thinking. It is waterproof and does not breathe. You stay dry because you start sleeping with the top at its thinnest setting and increase it if you become cold. I have stayed warm to 10 degrees with the top but an inch thick. It adjusts to three inches or more.
Your head will get cold (this mummy has no hood) so you MUST take a thick fleece or quilted hat with you.
On the other hand, I have slept at 102 humid degrees in Baja by using the bottom only, bug screen in place, and slept in a silk bag liner. Wierd Huh?
I did fall off a ledge in this bag, dropping 6 feet onto some EXTREMELY sharp rocks. Down flew everywhere. It is really good down, I would say 700 fill or better. I stuffed all I could back inside...used the on-board patch kit to repair the two tears...shifetd the down around a bit to insure there was no insulation "void" in the bottom and presto...I have been using it for another 8 months no problem.
I have no doubt that had the rocks been any less sharp, it would not have required patching.
I believe I could use this unit as a raft in case of a flash flood during slot canyon hiking.
