General comments: A stunningly warm sleeping bag, which certainly lives up to its stated ratings. It has been used on several occasions this winter in Scotland, with snow on the ground and I haven't once been cold. (Although I haven't been anywhere near the temperatures they say it can be used up to - in fact, I have generally been too warm). The lining is comfortable and the various neck and hood adjustments generally easy to use. The EXL body hugging system needs a bit of getting used to, but once you do, it works well (although if you don't like the feeling of being constricted, this is probably not for you). Personally, I would rather see bags being made that are generally the right shape for people, being a very skinny 6ft, rather than manufacturers using these gimmicks to try and adjust for size differences.. The only drawback that I can think of is its bulk - although it is provided with a compression sack, it is a still a pretty bulky bag (albeit fairly light). Having said that, I am used to using down bags, so maybe I'm being naive here, but uncompressed, it is probably about 15-20l (ME feel free to correct me?).
Pros: Good points...
Very, very warm.
Synthetic but light! (So easily washable)
Cons: Bad points...
Pretty bulky in your backpack.
Could do with a foot zip.
