Pros Awesome warmth-to-weight ratio for the price, very compressible, tons of venting options, nice compression sack includedSpacious dimensions, super comfortable, great loft, lightweight, made in the USASuper lightweight, incredible loft, snag-proof zipper, cozy hoodBest-in-class zipper, best-in-class hood, awesome loft, great warmth-to-weight ratioSpacious hourglass shape, innovative venting "gills", waterproof footbox, sturdy compression sack
Cons Not as warm as its temp rating, no draft collar, uncertain durabilityExpensive, awkward hood, good but not great zipperUncomfortably narrow dimensions, bare-bones design, noisy fabricNarrow leg dimensions, no draft collar, heavier and bulkier than some 3-season optionsBelow average warmth-to-weight ratio, bulky packed size
Bottom Line Great warmth-to-weight ratio for an affordable priceIf we could only have one bag for the rest of our lives, this would be itThe ideal bag when you need the warmth, but ounces matter tooExceptional warm and loft along with our favorite hood and zipperAn hourglass bag with premium down and spacious lower dimensions
