Just used my bag for the first time in Yosemite last night. When I first got a look at it in person I thought, "Oh oh, it's a little mummyish in shape". I cannot sleep in mummy bags. Way to confined. (If it wasn't for quilts I'd have a very hard time sleeping in the backcountry. I use the Sierra Designs Backcountry quilt 30 degree 800 fill.) I was a little anxious during the hike up to the top of Yosemite Falls wondering if I'd be able to sleep that night? Especially since it was going to be much colder than we anticipated that. We were expecting a low of 41 degrees, it actually got to 18 degrees. I would've never believed that until my friend came into my tent at 3am because he was to cold in his hammock. I was actually sweating a bit. (I was wearing long underwear.) I released the bungee cord that keeps the comforter in place and was really surprised how well the comforter seals in the heat. It also made sleeping on my side no problem at all and very comfortable. I was as comfortable on my stomach as I would be using my quilt. I was even able to bend my legs comfortably.
I use a 2.5 inch thick 20R for a pad. The fit was a little snug, but it still only took me 10 seconds to slide my pad in. That reminds me about one of the best things about the bag. It stays put on your sleeping pad. So nice not having to do the nightly readjust.
The bag is also compressible. It was in a 15 liter compression sack with my puffer, 2 pairs of socks, beanie, and long underwear (top/bottoms). I still had about 6 literally left to use in the sack. I was able to lay the bag sideways at the bottom of my bag. It made for a perfect base. It is a 65 liter bag for reference.
All in all this is the best bag I've ever owned. The only thing I would suggest is try to find a way to make the bungee less noticable when you're on your side. It definitely did not hinder sleep, I could hardly feel it, but it was noticeable. This will be my go to bag 3 1/2 seasons out off the year. I can't believe I said that about a sleeping bag!?

Holy H***! Is this bag HOT! Well, more accurately, it is warm. But never was I uncomfortable in it either. I have never used this style bag before and was extremely hesitant about buying one. But, after seeing strong reviews and having a close friend rant and rave about his bag, I decided to pull the trigger. I could not be happier with my purchase. I was camping in temps in the teens (sleeping inside the SD Convert 2) and never once was I cold in this bag. Much less, was I ever uncomfortable! I hate mummy bags! But this quilt/blanket design completely changed my world! I was easily able to side and belly sleep comfortably. The blanket top is plenty long and wide enough to keep itself tucked in on the sides and over your head if you need it. There is also a brilliantly placed detachable little bungee cord across the opening that helps keep the bag opening wrapped around you and the blanket. One thing to mention is that a sleeping pad is an absolute must as there is NO stuffing on the back of the bag from the hip up. You won't notice with a good sleeping pad though! In the end, the title says it all. This is a quality bag with a great design that will ensure comfortable sleep anywhere I go! Marc on Oct 27th 2017
