Quite possibly the perfect bag for quick and extremely light weight assaults in mild conditions. This bag has a TON of Pro's!
What weight? It is so light you don't even realize you have it in your pack and I carry it on most mountain assaults just in case I want to stay warm on the summit. TNF even heat transfered their logo onto the bag to save threadcount weight.
You can pack this bag down to the size of a softball if needed.
It is cut a bit tight to save weight and maximize heat so I would NOT recommend this bag for anyone that is claustrophobic. With NO side zipper this over sized potato sack could give you the impression of a straight jacket if you are not use to close quarters. There is however a vaulted footbox with a half dome zipper so you can sneak your toes out on warm nights or maneuver around the camp fire without fully exiting the bag (great touch).
Other Cool Features:
The hood cinch cord truly is a one hand operation. No zippers = no draft issues = better night sleep
All around this is an amazing bag and is exactly what I was looking for when I was looking for a lightweight bag.
