    Was super warm, too warm with the pants on, just sleeping on the ground (no mat).
    Bag design is awesome with lots of stretch and it's not a suffercating design so allows lots of wiggle room which makes for a better nights sleep. I'm about 6 foot so went for the long model which was primo for extra room and didn't feel like I lost any heat retention because of it.

    All and all, stoked with the purchase.
    Great to hear. I really like the stretchy material of the Downhugger and the lightness too. That bag is a +40F so being warm under the comfort rating is good.

    I've just ordered myself one of these:

    https://enlightenedequipment.com/revelation/

    It's a -6 rated quilt, 550grams. My current Sea to Summit bag is -6 rated at 1.2KG. If I like this quilt enough I'll order a -17 for the seriously cold stuff, the -17 is still only about 700grams. Crazy.

    I just received an EE/Massdrop quilt - 20F rating and 646gm (bag only)...Looks very good and was pretty reasonable price USD225.
