I have read the reviews about warmth and this bag and feel they have undersold it. I just returned from hiking the John Muir Trail in CA and must say it performed excellent there. I have also used this bag on several spring and fall trips and a couple of winter outings and have not gotten cold in it.

I like the water repellancy of the seam zero. Other bags get wet from condensation and rainy conditions, this bag does not due to the seam zero water proof coating which does work.

The KEY to keeping warm is use a good pad. I find the Big Agnes Dual Core insulated pad works well. Couple it with Big Agnes sleeping green giant pad and you have a complete winter system that will give you a comfortable rest and assure you that you won't roll off your pad. Sometimes in winter camping I add an REI wool bag liner which is very stretchy and sleep just fine at temps down to 15 degrees.

Mt Connes in CA in late Sept it got down to 19 and I slept great. Some people sleep cold and should just get bags that are rated 20 degrees colder than the anticipated temp. My girlfriend is that way. I don't know why they stopped making this bag.

I got this bag from the retail location in Steamboat for the demo price about three years ago when I first came out. I used it on numerous cold weather trips with the standard core pad and I seemed to be a bit cold but now after a few years I can't really even stay warm in it at 30 degrees. I need to wear pants and socks or down booties.

Last year when I got back from a January trip I went into the store on Oak Street in Steamboat and inquired about the lack of warmth. The guy that helped me said that it was a bit light in down to be considered a 15 degree bag and offered me a great deal on an overbag, so it is definitely not a 15 bag.

I purchased this bag as a demo model off the Big Agnes website. I have only used it one time in on a rainy 35 degree night in Wisconsin on a kayak trip. The river was very high and we had two-foot swells on the Red Cedar River. Very wet and dangerous for my liking but we lived.

The bag is waterproof but I stored it inside the waterproof hatch on my Perception Sundance kayak. I had one of the best night's sleep I could have asked for inside this oversized bag. I'm an oversized person at 6'1" 270, very thick upperbody from lifting...? anyway this bag is large enough for any big man and very warm. highly recommended.

Well this bag is roomy and is well put together. I ca'nt take that away from them.

There are some concerns about the temp rating. For instance not only I but my girlfriend tried this bag out on different hiking trips and we both were very cold! We both wore head to toe long johns and sweaters and even a knitted cap, also when my girlfriend used it she had a 45 degree bag inside of it, and had a Big Agnes sleeping pad. The nights we used were in 25 to 30 weather!! Be careful this could be dangerous.

This bag is great for comfort as far as room and having the attached sleeping pad. But this is not a 15 degree bag becuase I just had used it in mid 20's and I was chilly. I am guessing that I should get the insulated pad for any more cold weather trips because I only have the normal pad. It is a light and compact bag for its size but would recommend long johns and a liner for cold weather trips.
