Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Design: mummy (loose fit)
Fill: 600 fill down
Temperature Rating: 20
Price Paid: $190

This bag kept me warm enough, and the good thing about it is that it's waterproof. Last night's goosedown in a leaky tent in a rainstorm situation...well, the waterproofing really came through. Great for the East Coast, or tents with condensation.

The down side (so to speak) is it's a bit difficult to stuff, the waterproof material is not soft and comfy, there's a velcro thingy at the chin that sticks in your face, and I think you can find a more insulative bag for the weight and stuffability.

Go ahead and take this down-filled sleeping bag into the wet weather--the DriZone shell fabric offers waterproof, breathable protection. Designed to fit a woman's body with more room at the hips and less at the shoulders, plus more insulation in the torso and footbox. Quality 600 fill-power goose down insulation offers a high warmth-to-weight ratio. Baffle construction allows the goose down to remain fully lofted and keeps it from shifting and migrating, thus preventing cold spots. Nylon ripstop shell has a waterproof, breathable laminate that protects the down fill from outside moisture. Breathable lining allows moisture to escape so it doesn't get trapped and condense; the goose down stays dry and lofted so you stay warm. Contoured hood features differentiated drawcords that make adjustment easy, even in the dark. Contoured, roomy footbox gives feet space to be comfortable and allows goose down to loft fully, maximizing warmth. Full-length two-way zipper with glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls is backed by anti-snag zipper guard and fully insulated draft tube to keep cold air out. Pad Locks™ at the shoulders and hips keep your bag and sleeping pad together no matter how much you roll over. Comes with stuff sack and large storage bag. Overstock.
