It took me many different buys and returns at REI to find a bag I'm happy with. It fits large people well, I'm 6'1 and 250 lbs and it's not tight at all. It's true to its rating of 10 degrees, with mid weight thermals and socks, I was warm in 12 degrees. This hasn't been true with many other bags (even zero bags). A little on the heavier side, but what's 3-5 ounces if it's reliable and true to its rating.
Also for a regular price of $229 it's really affordable. I personally don't notice a temp rating difference between my old Marmot Colour ($449) 0 degree and this bag. Don't be fooled by its low price, knowing what I know now, I would probably buy it again if it was $100 more.
This is a great bag and on sale a fantastic value.

This is a great bag and on sale a fantastic value. It is not an ultra-lite bag but it is only ounces away from being one. Since it is not an ultra-lite it has benefits that are important to me.
It is made with heavier material and doesn't leak much down. It is roomier (bigger) and the material doesn't feel fragile. It also has been treated with DWR so water beads off. It packs small too.
Don't get caught up in high tech ultra-lite bags. They only offer a few ounces of savings at the expense of thinner material and tighter fit. This bag feels durable. Oh, it is plenty warm too...
Here's what other sites are saying:
Designed with comfort and weight savings in mind, the warm REI Radiant +10 sleeping bag has a mummy shape but offers a spacious, relaxed fit. High-quality 650-fill-power goose down is warm, lightweight and compressible; ripstop nylon shell resists water and abrasion. Smooth taffeta lining is comfortable against your skin. Exclusive REI Down Fill Calculator optimizes the amount of down per baffle for the most warmth with the least amount of down. Baffle spacing allows the down to remain fully lofted and keeps it from shifting, preventing cold spots. Relaxed fit from the shoulders to the hips increases comfort by providing ample space to move around. Equally distributed insulation all the way around the bag accommodates the multi-position sleeper. Contoured hood, face muffler, draft collar, roomy footbox, full-length antisnag zipper, and full-length draft tube with ground-level seams keep body heat in and cold air out. Differentiated drawcords (1 round, 1 flat) let you adjust hood and neck easily in the dark. European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags. Includes nylon stuff sack and cotton storage bag.
