    I am really considering getting this bag. I really like the concept of the Top bag and it seems to me like WM has created a system here that helps prevent drafts. At only 17 oz for a long 30 degree bag is pretty amazing. I was wondering if anyone has an expereince with this bag or has heard anything about its performance. It seems like BPL gave it a pretty good rating, wondering what you all think?

    No direct experience, but have you considered the WM Summerlite? Full bag, similar temp rating, and almost as light!

    I am thinking that everything else being equal, a good-fitting bag will be more efficient and slightly warmer than one that’s “spread out and draped over” a 20-inch pad???

    Also, a full bag is good for crashing on the sofa of a friend’s house…

    I have a pod 30 and feel it was a great deal. I use it in combination with a BMW bivy and a patagonia jacket. It gives a pretty wide variety of temperatures.

    The only thing about the summerlite is the girth. I’m 6’1′ 210 and I don’t know if the girth will be big enough. It have not found what the girth is for the long, any one know? and yes i do you a 20 inch pad. Anyone tested out the temp and how true is the 30 degree rating?
