The Big Agnes Storm King 0 Degree Sleeping Bag will save your backside during any type of thunder storm or thunder snow. This Big Agnes sleeping bag features a larger rectangular design for more room and interior fabric loops for a sleeping bag liner. Big Agnes mates their zippers too so the left and right zippers are the same size - the left and right side of the Big Agnes Storm King also zip down so you can get down on that mountain.
As far as sleeping bags go, 3.25 pounds is really light. When you're talking about a bag that will keep you warm in the dead of winter, however, 3.25 pounds is ridiculous. On top of the warmth, the Storm King 0-degree Sleeping Bag has a roomy rectangular design and can even be zipped together with another rectangular bag. The main reason for this ultra-light weight is the fact that Big Agnes eliminated the unnecessary insulation from the bottom of the bag. When you're sleeping on top of insulation, it doesn't keep you warm because it has no loft and therefore no air istrapped inside to keep you warm. Instead, Big Agnes put a Sleeping Pad Pocket in its place, so you have the trapped air in the sleeping pad keeping you warm and at the same time you can't roll off the sleeping pad.
Classic Series Down bags offer warmth, compressibility and big comfort.

Flow™ Construction: Insotect Flow™ is a flow-optimized insulation system that delivers uniform heat distribution and natural body contouring through its revolutionary baffle design. Flow Construction eliminates lateral and vertical down shifting by using vertical chambers with Flow Gates to regulate fill positioning and density. Strategically placed Flow Gates minimize vertical down shifting while vertical chambers minimize lateral shifting. With continuous vertical Flow chambers in place of traditional side seams, Flow bags eliminate potential cold spots which can occur with side seams. Vertical baffles now flow with your body for more rapid and uniform body heat distribution. LEFT OR RIGHT ZIPPER? When you are in the bag, on your back, the right zip will be on your right side, left zip on your left side.

This is an exceptional bag. It is very lightweight for the size and being down allows it to compact very small (you can stuff it in a 10L Outdoor Research compression sack). My previous bag would take up almost all of the large sleeping bag compartment in my pack, while the Storm King leaves plenty of room for sleeping pad and other things.
I have yet to truly test the 0 degree rating, but have had it out for some chilly nights. With the Insulated Q-core pad I have yet to sleep through a night with the bag zipped up, it has been plenty toasty.
If you are remotely close to the 5'10" break point for regular and long, get the long. You will enjoy the extra room.
I do enjoy the extra wiggle room this bag provides by skipping the insulation in the back. You just have to take care of your pad and you will be fine.
For the $ your not going to find a better Zero bag out there. Downtek, which is really amazing stuff. Stays dry 10 times longer than regular down and drys out 33% faster. If the synthetics didn't cost so much less downtek and dridown would make it obsolete. Super warm bag, vertical baffling helps keep your little piggy's warm with all the extra core heat sent their way. The weight isn't bad but you do have to have a 4 seasons pad to make this a true zero bag. There is no insulation on the bottom, the pad is your insulation.
