Thinking this would be a cheap, compact summer bag, I grabbed one at the Sportman's Show in TO last year.

Well, it was cheap, compact and fairly light-weight, bythe 0C rating is ridiculous. I've slept in it indoors with long underwear on, and still been chilly.

This bag was not covered under 3M's 'Sleep Warm' TM Gaurantee, so I couldn't trade up for a warmer bag.

It's really only good for the hottest nights, but I am going to try it as a liner bag with my 3-season in the winter.

Beware cheap bags, their temp ratings are often even more exaggerated than normal! Always check how much fill is inside,

and how well it lofts up.
