Voted 4/5

The 30 degree rating is a bit inaccurate in my opinion. I think this bag could easily handle 20 degree temps. One morning I woke up and the thermometer in my tent read 25 and I was toasty as can be. The bag is very comfortable as well. The 800 down fill allows it to pack down real tight, about the size of a real football. Very lightweight. The only think I dont like would be the zipper. I wish it went down a bit more, but I suppose that would compromise weight and packability.
