I wholly agree with all the accolades above. I just received my second Arc Alpinist (wife gets the prior one). I ordered the latest in Epic, 3 oz down overfill, and a length averaged between a regular and XL, and it is still lighter than my Moonstone Lucid XL. The new one featured 3 straps. I highly recommend seriously considering the Arc Alpinist and when comparing it to other sleeping bags, look carefully at the girth, as many of the other light bags such as the Moonstone Lucid achieve their weight-savings at the expense of room. I have absolutely no problem covering both myself and my dog with my Arc Alpinist, but do not have enough room to suit me when zipped into the Lucid. Also, when comparing to other bags, look at the shell fabrics as they are not all created equal, and you do have a choice with Nunatak. I personally do not think Nunatak's prices differ all that much when you compare them to similar temperature-rated and comparable weight mass-produced bags. If you do intend to get one, be prepared for a 2-3 month wait as there is usually a work backlog. Well worth the wait, though!
