I had the Halo 25 which was amazing, so I picked the 10 degree Halo at the REI used gear sale for $100. It packs about the size of a 6 pack of tall cans, and weighs under 3 lbs. It's rated 10+, but at 10 degrees, I felt no signs of the cold coming through all night and besides my face, was warm as could be. You ever slept in a ski mask? haha.
Remember to insulate underneath your bag as down compresses significantly under your body weight and you lose most of the insulative properties. Especially on an uninsulated air mattress.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The REI Halo +10 goose down bag offers the perfect of balance low weight, high-quality materials and top performance-great for backpacking in cool weather. Features premium 750-fill-power goose down insulation, a downproof, partially recycled ripstop polyester shell and lining. Exclusive REI Down Fill Calculator optimizes the amount of down per baffle for the most warmth with the least amount of down. In-the-round pattern wraps vertical baffles around perimeter of sleeping bag, from head to foot, creating a 3-dimensional bag that wraps you in warmth. Contoured hood, face muffler, trapezoidal foot box, full-length antisnag zipper, and full-length draft tube with ground-level seams all keep body heat in, cold air out. Wrap-around draft collar drapes comfortably over neck and shoulders, sealing out drafts. External chest pocket keeps essentials such as your headlamp, watch and glasses right at hand and easy to find in the dark. Differentiated drawcords (1 round, 1 flat) let you adjust hood and neck easily in the dark. Pad loops provide attachment points to keep your sleeping bag and pad together, so you needn't worry about rolling off onto the cold ground (straps sold separately). European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags. Comes with stuff sack and large cotton storage bag.
