I bought this bag for much less new than it costs new now. So when I got it, it was a crazy deal instead of just a great deal. Still a superior product though. For this bag's price, it goes above and beyond expectations. I had three friends who had this bag and raved about it forever, so I finally bought one. It's the best sleeping bag that I have ever owned. I recommend it to everyone I know who asks me about sleeping bags. I am one of those people who is always cold, especially when I sleep. I've never been cold in this bag though. I've woken up in a crappy tent with frost on the outside of the bag and having it be a little bit wet, and I was toasty and warm all night. The worst part of this bag is getting out of it on cold mornings!
