Great bag all around. I've used it in Oregon during long, cold, wet nights, and have woken up well rested. To be honest, I was first using it with many layers worn during the night and not being able to warm up. It wasn't until my second weeklong trip that I realized that the less clothes I wore, the warmer I was. Leave it to the synthetic fill.
The Cat's Meow is best used with a sleeping pad, I have found. When compressing any sleeping bag when using it, it will lose its "warming" abilities. hus, an insulating layer is required between the bag and the ground/floor. I use a Thermorest 3/4 pad and it works perfect.
