...don't leave home without it. Very warm and comfortable. Plenty of room to wiggle without feeling constricted; weight is not bad for the warmth, and it's nice to know the Conduit shell is there just in case things get moist.

Took it down to -10F and never got a chill. Packs up pretty small and is fairly light weight. Would highly recommend it.

Plenty warm at high camp. Outstanding for the price. The conduit really works and it is far more compactible than my 850fil Marmot and less than half the price.
Good deal.
