Cannot wait to try it out!
Very hard to rate when I have not used it and am only going on what it looks and feels like. This sleeping bag looks super warm, feels soft and comfortable and is really light. My only concern is shell looks very thin and I can see the feathers through it. I will change my review after I have tried it out.
