Rated 4 out of 5 by Tommyhunts Too warm for summer
Well I purchased this sleeping bag for later season elk hunts but wanted to try it on my summer moose hunt. This bag is great with the exception of it being a little bulkier than I would have liked and it doesn't breath well at all making a "stuffy" sleep in warmer weather. All in all though this bag has proved to be quite amazing for the price.

This bag kept me warm in the mountains of Colorado in Oct in 20 degree weather. All I wore was a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. The Retain material is just like Arctic Shield's material where it reflects your body heat back to you. If you wear more than a minimal amount of clothes your body heat cant be passed through to the bag material and is not reflected and you freeze. So don't be the guy who layers up in the bag because you are slowing how much of your body heat is being reflected to warm you. Be the smart guy who knows what they are doing and use the bag the way it was designed!

I have used this bag 4 times now 3 in the low 30s and once in the low 40s. I wore one base layer and used a therma-rest pad with a R rating of about 3 and a half. Never once did i feel the slightest bit cold. This bag will keep you toasty you just have to make sure you have a good insulated sleeping pad under you. The hood is cut a little wide for a mummy bag making it bunch slightly when you close it up but its nothing to cry about. For the money this bag is the best value you will find as most cold weather bags cost around 500 bucks. I have no doubt this bag will preform in high single digits but if you are looking for a bag that will actually preform at -20 and think your going to spend 150 bucks for that you are going to get a quick reality check.
Also this bags looks sweet!!!

I used this bag last night with a Eureka Casper 15 degree bag inside it. I was also wearing two layers of underarmor and had my bags set up in a bivy sac on a closed cell foam pad. Last night it got to +28 degrees Fahrenheit and I was uncomfortably cold with the setup I had.
Much like many bags that aren't quality name brands, the company can put whatever temperature rating on it they want.
This bag isn't a bad deal for only $150, but you get what you pay for. Expect to pay several hundred dollars for a legitimate -20 bag.
The inside of the bag is much too spacious for me but is great for slipping another sleeping bag inside it. I would consider this more like a +20 degree bag since I was cold in it using it in combination with a +15 bag. I have used many sleeping bags over the years and have found that generally to be comfortable in 20 degrees you need two 20 degree bags--likewise to be comfortable in -20 you would need two -20 bags.
However, even with two of these bags layered up you might die in actual -20 degree temperatures.
The weight of the bag is accurate, it weighs almost exactly 5 pounds which isn't bad. I've slept in worse bags that were over 7 pounds.
