With a 59" shoulder girth this efficient bag is good to 20°. The Split-Full Collar helps to seal in heat around your neck without adding excess bulk, and 14 oz. of high lofting down pumps this bag to 5". The total weight of this very compressible package is only 1 lb. 10 oz.

Voted 5/5

I bought this bag for light fast trips where warmth was required and weight was factor. I've been quite happy with this bag on two seperate accounts this year. First I did a two day fastpack on the High Sierra Trail and then a two day Palisade traverse where we camped at 13,800' . In both cases I was warm and comfortable while hauling the bag was a dream due to its light weight and compact size. I also examined the craftmanship of this bag and found it to be excellent. Stiching is precise and the zipper works perfectly. This bags lofts nicely after being packed.

I've used mine for seven years with no complaints. It hasn't lost any loft, is very light for the warmth, and is durable. The only time I don't use it is warm summer nights. This is the best sleeping bag I've found yet!
