When I saw the ads for this bag last year in Backpacker I just had to get one. I've never been able to find a comfortable 3 season bag and for someone that spends at least 50- 60 nights a year sleeping on the ground, getting a good night's sleep is crucial. And now i can, this is one SWEET bag! It's a little bit heavier than most other 3D bags with a 15 deg. rating but the comfort trade off is well worth it if you like to sprawl when you sleep like I do. I've used the bag in temps bet 10-15 deg and found the rating to be on the money, for me anyways. I tend to be a "warm" sleeper and used a full-length Z-rest under a 3/4 Therma-rest during the coldest nights.
SD is putting the "flex" feature in several more of their bags for 2000, some Down, some 3D, so if you like some room and still be warm, these are the bags for you.
