When it comes to my impressions of this sleeping bag, I’m extremely impressed.
The quality is excellent and the feel of this bag is top notch.
Yes it is heavy, it is large but this is a synthetic fill sleeping bag that can handle temps down to 1f.  

With my experiences, I’ve tested this bag out on two overnight trips where the temps went down to 3f at the coldest point.
I stayed perfectly warm with while wearing a sweater and some thermal underwear.  

This is a mummy style sleeping bag so this will be a snug fit as it is meant to fit close to the body to prevent cold pockets.

When testing out this sleeping bag, I couldn’t help but to compare it to the Eberlestock Reveille sleeping bag.  I’ve reviewed the Reveille bag in the past and I love it but it’s a pricey bag at $279.00.  The comfort temp ratings are almost the same (5F) even though Eberlestock says that their bag can be pushed to -36F.

The fact that the Expedition sleeping bag is $89 blows my mind.  This is in my opinion offers an incredible value for the money for a sleeping bag that really does perform on a level that matches much more expensive products.
