    I recently sold mine. It was a good bag for the price, I used it as a top quilt comfortably down to about 30*. The hood kinda get in your way a bit though.

    I was looking to get one when GoLite had a sale on top quilts that I took advantage of. I'm glad I don't have zippers and such to contend with. You might prefer a top quilt over a mummy. Worth thinking about.

    A good TQ is roughly twice the cost and half the weight!

    I have this bag and it functions just fine as a top quilt for me. I have had it down to 36* with no issues. The hood can get in the way some but that is a minor issue. It packs down well in the supplied stuff sack or you can get a compression sack and get it smaller. I just stuff it in the bottom of my BP. With all of that said I do plan to upgrade to a TQ someday.

    I had this bag till yesterday when I took it back to sports chalet for my money back and used it to by a marmot sawtooth that claims 15 degrees. This bag was too heavy to only take me down to 35 degrees unlike its claim temp which is based of a military standard that guarantees survival at that rating for four hours. I have a great top quilt from wilderness logics and an 800 fill zero degree from golite but sometimes when Im lounging in the morning of winter I want absolute darkness and warmth while I lay alone with no one around me.

    I've got a Kelty light 20 down and I've had it down to 9* as a top quit! An extreme situation but I didn't freeze!

    I wanted to cut the hood off and make booties or a diy black rock beanie (instructions somewhere in diy) , but ended up selling the bag.
