General comments: The Mountain Equipment Moonwalker 2 is a great bag for many pursuits in all weathers. I bought this bag as I needed a synthetic bag to cope with milder condition where I would be mainly biviing. This put down out of the question as I have experienced a wet down bag before and didn’t want to have that happen again. The bag is rated to –4 so is good for the spring and summer months although Mountain Equipment do say that its extreme temperature is –20 (I wouldn’t use it in that). The fill is polarguard delta, which provides great insulation and relatively good compressibility. The outer has a ripstop finish treated with DWR, this does work and repels light rain and dew well. The bag has the mountain Equipment EXL system that reduces cold spots in the bag, I have always worn clothes when bivving sand have never felt cold in this bag. The toe area is shaped to allow a more natural resting position for the feet, this works very well. The neck collar works well and the hood is a great fit. I find that when you close up some hoods you can feel a little claustrophobic, I haven’t found this in the moonwalker.
Pros: Good value bag for spring and summer.
Cons: Havent found any yet.

General comments: I have been using this bag for a few months now and have been very impressed with it. It compresses very well for a synthetic bag and I have found the -4 temperature rating to be quite accurate though have not yet been able to test it below that limit. It has stood up to being shoved in the bottom of my macpac for numerous days on end without any effect on its insulating abilities, and it has been nice not to have to worry about keeping a down bag dry. The DWR treatment to the outer shell works well particularly when I am using my lightweight single skin tent which sometimes has a condensation problem. Occassionally, despite it s claim to be anti-snag, I have caught the baffle in the zip but that may be my clumsiness.
Pros: Compressability for a synthetic bag
Cons: Poor compression sack provided with it- to get it properly squashed you need to buy a different one
