Voted 5/5

For a 0 degree down bag, you can't really beat the price. It's under 4 pounds, and compresses ok. The supplied compression sack can cinch down the bag fairly well, although fitting it sideways inside smaller packs can be a challenge at times. It lofts fairly well for only 600 fill. I would believe the temp rating, as I've slept in single digits in just my underwear briefs and was warm. Again...for the price, it's hard to beat....
