This a good bag. The radial baffle system is as good as anything else I've tried (though not necessarily better), it lofts well, it's durable and the microfiber shell sheds moisture well. The weight is fine, and the temperature rating seems accurate (for me anyways); I've yet to do it all the way up, even on some milder winter trips. One irritating thing though, is the zipper. It doesn't ride cleanly and often gets caught on the draft tubes. This warms you up from the physical effort you expend trying to get the thing done up, but makes for mighty tired arms and nocturnal frustrations when nature calls in the wee hours. It needs some improvement here. All 'round though, no huge problems. It's comfy.
