Review by: cryder, 2004-08-11

The concept behind this bag actually works - a secondary draft tube that acts as a huge vent. Open the zipper and it cools the bag, close it up tight and it damps the puppy down like a stove. The bag is an honest to goodness -15 degree bag that wont roast you into a sweaty pulp on a 10 above night. Also, for those who climb alpine style, the vent seems to help keep the down dry and the bag usable when wearing damp clothes to bed. Contruction is top notch, and the Conduit fabric is off to a good start in being breathable but able to keep the bag dry. I am a big guy, and love the roomy cut. At just over $365 bones for a size long -15 F bag, its suprisingly versatile and priced right (I bought it for $105 on sale at REI).
