Mountain Hardwear Lamina 32 Long
I ordered this before I saw the golite quilt sale... It is new w/ tags and stuff sack. Greenish brown (mostly brown) "Lamina 32- long lizard gris vert", looks awesome, but a down quilt is in my very-near future This would be a great bag for somebody who might do some occasional (gasp) tent camping on the side, it has a full-length zipper so it can be used as a quilt in the hammock.
It is synthetic insulation with Mountain hardwear's laminated construction (suposed to be better than stiching in certain areas)
$110 shipped (CONUS)

I have one of these and think it an excellent bag. I have used it down to freezing and find it warm if you zip it right up and close up the hood (leaving your mouth/face open).
I have one of those rated at 0 degrees. It's a really good bag just bulkier and heavier than down. I recently bought a down Western Mountaineer 30 degree....very sweet. Hopefully a 0 degree down WM is in my fiuture to replace the MH.
