Pros Spacious and comfortable cut, extremely light weight, among the most compressible bags in our review, Made in the USA, extremely versatile, best feeling fabric in our reviewLight for warmth, fantastic hood design, cozy internal fabric, incredibly compressible, nice foot box, sweet internal zippered pocketWarmest bag in our review, lightweight, great no catch zipper design, excellent compressed sizeLightweight, warmer than other 30F models, extremely compressible, fantastic feeling interior fabric, Made in the USA, zipper snags less frequently than other ultralight modelsWarm for its temperature rating and overall super lightweight for its warmth, lighter than most 30°F models, extremely packable, cozy interior fabric
Cons Included stuff sack is a little big and doesn't compress it as small as it otherwise could be, expensiveSmall zipper is prone to catchingExpensive, very warm for mid-summer, weak velcro closure for draft collar, slightly on the tight side dimensionallyTighter than average interior dimensions, included stuff sack could offer better compressionTighter than average internal dimensions, on the more expensive side
Bottom Line If we could only have one bag this would be it, as it's nearly the lightest and most packable model that offers spacious dimensions and above average warmth.One of the best overall sleeping bags on the market for its weight, warmth, and compressed size.This is the warmest 20F we have tested while remaining one of the lighter and more compact models in our review.This superlight and extremely compressible model offers some of the best warmth to weight ratio of any option out there.If you are looking for a performance-oriented model but run on the cold side, this model is warmer than many 25F models while being lighter than most 30F.
