The bag is super light and compressible, but not anywhere near 0 degrees. I have spent a lot of time outside in a lot of bags and this one is not that warm. Froze my ass off in J-tree when the overnight lows were around 32. You can't rate a bag as 0 degrees when that is the absolute lowest possible temperature you could survive at in it.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

When weight and size are a major concern, pack The North Face Pyxis Sleeping Bag. The Pyxis' ultra light design and extreme compressibility effectively minimize your load. To reduce weight, The North Face even replaced their standard embroidered logos with a heat-transfer print. 20D Hyperlight ripstop material increases durability, and overlapping shingle construction traps heat in while eliminating escape seams. Retention loops keep you from rolling off your pad in the middle of the night and a storage sack helps your synthetic mummy bag retain loft when it's off the trail.
