I forget when I bought this. It was on an uber-closeout type deal. This sleeping bag is not made anymore. The facts:

- 750+ fill down
- Size Long (6' 6") Weight: Says 24 oz, 23 oz in my kitchen
- Dimension Polyant Airnet fabric
- Rated to 30 degrees
- 1/2 zipper
- Mummy hood
- Sewn-through design, continuous baffles

Comes in any color you like as long as it's black.

The thirty degree rating is pretty close but I have slept cold in the bag a few times. My son loves the thing. He is a little guy right now and I think will grow into the thing before he is done sleeping in it on our trips. I think it's main limitation is it's sewn-through design. The baffles are continuous, however, and it should be possible to adjust the down so there is more on the top of the bag. I have never tried this.

I have never measured the loft of the bag and probably should. That said, I would say that for the weight of fill involved here and the fill rating the bag is about where it should be.

The zipper is a little on the cheap side and it gets stuck in the fabric of the bag once in a while.

The fabric has the look and feel of a garbage bag. This is my first (and only) piece of gear made from Dimension Polyant Airnet. At first I thought it was pretty flimsy stuff (like a garbage bag) but now with my 8 year old son sleeping in it I know it's got to be pretty tough stuff.
