Clark makes a great product and I used mine for several years with no problems but the pockets have to have real insulation of some kind to keep you warm
I tried the infalted ziplock bags just once - in 40 degree temps, and they didn't seem to work. The podcast also stated Clark offers tree straps to prevent damage to trees but that is not true. After listening to the podcast I'm considering returning my second Clark. Misleading statements like that reflect on the entire product.
