Rating: rated 2.5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $165

Summary

I ended up not using this bag, opting instead for a warm wool blanket when it snowed at 5000'.
The loops that held the straps ripped the first week, and the seam on the small pocket (think of a pocket on your flannel shirt) ripped even though I never used the pocket.

My Haven was good for 20°, which is fine as long as it doesn't get wet.

Pros

  • Fairly warm
  • Very light 1lb 6 oz

Cons

  • Hard to get into
  • Hard to avoid air seeping out (or in) from the back.

Drafts are expected.

Not easy to get in or out of. God forbid a wild-land fire if you're asleep.

I was in 15°-75° weather.

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Haven 20 degree bag is Therm-a-Rest's newest and first sleeping bag. The idea behind this bag is that in order to keep you warm throughout the night you need to have insulation that has loft. When you sleep in your sleeping bag, however, you compress the insulation which prevents it from doing its job. Therm-a-Rest has eliminated the problem by completely removing it from the picture. This bag doesn't have a back panel, and instead it wraps around you and your sleeping pad to provide a fully enclosed sleep system. Don't worry about any draft either because this bag has a specially modified hood, foot box and a wrap-around design that will keep the cold air out. This bag is a great choice for gram counters. By eliminating the less useful insulation on the bottom, as well as removing a zipper this bag comes in at just 1 lb. 6 oz.Features: Technical Performance: Durable 20D nylon shell,and 700-fill down combine with a full hood, modified foot box andwrap-around coverage to provide reliable warmth with minimal draft. Exceptional Versatility: Can be strapped to any mattress, used on top in warmer weather or slip a tapered ProLite or ProLite Plus mattresses inside for maximum cold-weather performance. Unparalleled Comfort: No more sleeping like a mummy, trying to find out which way is up, orsearching for your zipper weve delivered room where you want itwithout excessive gaping for maximum efficiency.
