Thanks for the review. The feature I like about the mobile mummy bag is you can get a unexpected snow storm, or keep it with you for winter car travel as both a bag and an emergency down coat. With some good materials, sew your own.

Good review of some new products there. The Sierra Designs bags seemed like a bit of the same currently offered by ExPed...and those prices, wow! Plus, if I want real mobility and a sleeping bag that gives me a lot more I'll go with a Selk'bag. I hear the new model is awesome and lets you wear your own boots while sleeping or walking around.

I've heard mixed reviews on dridown-- about its longevity and how waterproof it actually is. Also, I've heard that it clumps together and you have to shake it out before using it again after several uses. Anyone know any further information/experience with this?
