Rated4out of5byhikerchickfromKelty Cosmic Down 41 sleeping bagHow comfortable a person is depends on a variety of factors. I have a 3-season shelter as well as an insulated air mat which probably helps in staying warm. Under those factors, and even though findings show that women are "cold sleepers", the Kelty Cosmic down 41 degree rated sleeping bag seemed to perform in the expected range for me.
The test for this bag's lower comfort range was during an early October wilderness trip for one night when the morning temperature was 40 degrees in the tent. In preparation for a chilly night I did bring along a sleeping bag liner, but the Kelty bag along with mid-weight long underwear was enough to keep me warm until about 5:00am, which then I added the liner.
The Kelty Cosmic down 41 by itself is strictly a 1-season bag. The fact that it's lightweight and compressible was very attractive for me as the main features. I even managed to get it into a 5-liter stuff sack, allowing more room in my pack. The retail price is affordable, avoiding an insane triple digit figure of a premium bag. The only mark against this sleeping bag is that its "down-proof-ness" is not very good, so expect to have little white plumes on your clothes. All though, you can't expect too much from an economy sleeping bag, and I also read that down-proof-ness", or lack of, probably won't noticeably affect the overall warmth performance.

Rated5out of5byCruiseControlfromPerfect Spring/Summer BagVery light weight bag, packs small, and for a great price. I have used this bag on several backpacking trips this summer in Northern California in night time temperatures ranging (40-60F). I am a hot sleeper and found this bag to be very warm in those conditions. Most nights I unzip the bag. Based off of my experiences I will continue to use the bag this fall.

Rated4out of5byVintageRainefromVery nice bagI tried this bag out in 40 degree weather while tent camping.... Unfortunately, that trip was also cut short because of heavy rains, which is not something this bag is cut out for. As long as you're high and dry, this bag is great. I would recommend a pad of some sort underneath... The ground was awfully hard that night.

Rated4out of5byOldYelrfromGreat 3-season light weight bagBought and used for GCNP Backcountry / SW CO trip last week of July '13. Temperature rating spot on. Regular is tight for me (5'10, 190lb) but workable. Small and light.

Rated4out of5bywolfperson1fromLighweight. Seems warmHaven't used it in any cold weather yet, but I like how small and light this sleeping bag is.
So far, I've done one overnight with it and it seemed fairly warm. I overheated a little, but it is summer time, so I expected that.

Rated4out of5bymikedwileyfromGood piece of gearGood sleeping bag. I bought the long version, being 6-2. It was long enough and I didnt feel restricted in any sort. The temp rating is pretty accurate. I tend to be warmer than others, but I stayed pretty comfortable in this bag inside a tent with rain, heavy wind, and 40 degrees outside. 4 stars in my book. It would get the 5th star if it were cheaper.
