User Review: Western Mountaineering MegaLite
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $325
Quality construction, Excellent comfort, roomy and made in the U.S.A. Good to 20 degrees in a tent with light thermals and wool socks. I am 5'10", 210 lbs. With the 6' standard bag the fit was perfect with plenty of wiggle room.

My first trip was to Deer Creek (at 6800') and it got down to 20 degrees the first night. I was toasty warm wearing just ultra light thermals, wool socks and no balaclava.
This is the first bag I have with the zipper on the left side. It will take some getting used to. With a whole life of right zippers and all.
The 6'0" bag was a perfect fit for me at 210' and 5'10" height. I had plenty of room to move and wiggle. I appreciate the moisture resistant shell on the baffle that was touching my chin (It appears purple on the stock photos). I have not yet backpacked with this bag, so I cannot speak to compressibility.
The zippers are YKK, need I say more, But I will, they are flawless. With the balance between weight and usefulness so stressfully measured this day and age this bag meets a point of balance that rests on the razor's edge perfectly.
First time I used the bag, but not the last. I will see but I think I can easily take it down to 10 degrees? I will let you know the exact circumstances if it happens. I would buy this bag in a snap again and again.
