Summary

I have the men's version (gold and grey color). Awesome bag! Snug as a bug in a rug!

Pros

  • Light
  • Super loft
  • Super warm
  • Great hood, baffles, draft tube

I have the men's version of this bag, bought it in 2002 I think. The thing rocks! Its shell is water resistant (always a good thing with a down bag), and while there's higher fill-power bags out there, for the price you will have to look hard to find a better value in a sub-zero bag. 

I have taken this bag out in zero degree temps in Shenandoah National Park, sleeping in an open-sided shelter with wind-blown snow hitting me all night... and I stayed toasty warm with just a base layer on. It is SUPER silky-soft on the inside, yet durable. Packs down small.

The draft collar, tube, and hood are nice and thick — no drafts. And there's a micro-fleece layer around the hood area for your face. Plus nice touches like the hood/collar pull cords are different by touch and visual, so no fumbling around when trying to adjust in the dark.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed specifically for women, this compressible, ultralight goose down bag features smart insulation distribution for superior warmth. Premium 750-fill-power goose down is efficiently distributed for maximum comfort with 60% of the down on top and 40% underneath you. Contoured construction with efficient, slim fit is cut specifically for a woman's shape. Tightly woven ripstop polyester shell and polyester taffeta lining are durable, lightweight and water-resistant. Vertical Baffle construction lets the goose down remain fully lofted and keeps it from shifting and migrating, preventing cold spots. Contoured hood, locking full-length zipper, insulated draft collar, roomy foot box and full-length draft tube keep heat in and cold air out. Differentiated drawcords (one round, one flat) let you adjust hood and neck area easily, even in the dark. Pad loops provide attachment points to keep your sleeping bag and pad together to avoid rolling off onto the cold ground (straps sold separately). Includes stuff sack and large cotton storage bag.
