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.
