Any thoughts or opinions on it?

I have not seen or used that bag. You will want to know if the 2lb.1oz. is the total weight or the fill weight. That can be misleading. It looks like a tight fitting bag. I need a 32" shoulder area, anything less is too constricting so you may want to try it before you buy it. Otherwise, the price is good. I wonder if you are going to want to be in that bag if the temps drop below freezing. Maybe someone else has tried it and can give you some more insight. By the way, Welcome to the forum! :D

I personally have used High Peak Sleeping bags to good effect. They are about the same price range and the temp rating on them are verified. I have the Extreme Pak 0 degree bag. It packs down a lil larger than a nalgene water bottle and I have used it down to 5 degrees (w/ Thermarest). Carry weight is right at 3 lbs.

They also have the Alpine Pak which is the 20 degree bag. A friend of mine got this one and it packs down to a softball size.

Bags and packs are like shoes :D See a pair you like, get the size that fits and try them for a space of time. :D ;) You can always sell it on craigs list or ebay. If that fails, give it to a buddy and buy a new one based on the experience.

Your research is a great way to start. I can't help you in any way. I can't get comfortable in a mummy style bag. I wonder how I'm going to fare inside a hammock......time will tell. :D
