The Softie Elite Series has a number of extra features, mainly the EPS (Expanda Panel System). When the EPS is not needed, it is an extra thick zip baffle helping to keep out those unwanted drafts. When extra room is needed simply deploy the EPS and zip it together with the zipper of the main body. The EPS provides an additional 5 ‚œ 10 inches of extra space.
When temperatures drop you will be well prepared in the warmest sleeping bag the Elite range has to offer, this bag was designed with expeditions in mind and combines excellent thermal properties with the freedom of movement offered by the unique easy to deploy Expanda Panel System. Performance is further enhanced with the addition of the space age Reflectatherm metalized barrier.

I've use this bag in the bitter cold inside my tent and it is great. I'm 6'5'' and I'm a overall big guy, the expandable zipper system gave me just enough room to fit inside and move my arms around. It's very warm. I felt like I had a space heater inside my tent.
I have used once in pre trial camping session , snugpak quality is excellent , very comfortable and design technology is great I have not tested at lowest temp rating but I can tell it's very warm ...
