My wife has got one and this bag is thick! Lots of down! I just notice they got mens on sale too! 20 degree same price!

    Very good advice, my wife and I sleep double in our hammock and use the sub-kilo for an under quilt and a kilo plus for our top quilt. Very good bags for their price.

    What are your thoughts on the temp ratings? Everything I have read about them says that they are really only good to 30 or so, which is why I have held off on one.

    I would agree that they're rated warmer then they should be, but I'd say the difference is ~5-10 off, not 15. I bought both of mine at REI garage sales with blown out seems that could have caused the difference in how mine function.

    Another cheap top quilt, I found the rectangular Kelty Galactic +35 down bag on sale at Sunny Sports for $55 shipped.

    Might be a good way to make yourself a couple of cheap under and over quilts.
