Anybody have this? It's part of the REI sale and seems like for 75 bucks it could be a great down bag for late spring, early summer? Thoughts?

==============================

Don't have that exact bag. It wasn't available when I purchased mine. I have an early vintage REI Travel Sack. Synthetic mummy bag with a rating of about 50 - 55 degrees. The Travel Sack has worked out well for me but if I had it to do all over again I'l probably go for the Travel Down bag, both for the additional comfort rating and for the weight/compressibility. That said though, the one thing I like MORE about my Travel Sack is the draw string foot end. You can use it as a vent on really warm nights or to allow walking around without getting out of the bag on cold mornings.
