Review: I purchased this bag as a Christmas present to myself and so far everytime I used this bag I'm not regretting my purchase. Last night for example Ohio got blasted with more Arctic air and the night time lows were forecasted to dip down to the 10 degree mark so I decided to put this mummy bag to the test. I was warm as toast all night long. All I can say Downright made a good decision by using Dupont's Hollofil II insulation which works just as well as the more popular (and trendy I might add) Polargaurd 3D insulation. Personally, I couldn't tell any difference between the performance of the two fills. Also the dimensions of the bag are just right for my 6 foot one frame with wide shoulders, the bag being 87 inches long and 33 inches wide. I don't wake up with the typical cramped shoulders like I did with mummies with a narrower cut. The bag suffers no insulating capibilities I may add with the slightly wider cut.
All in all, this is one decent performing bag for the 40 bucks I paid for it and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone seeking a affordable cold weather mummy.
