I used the bag this year on my ptarmigan hunt in September in the Collegiate Peaks region of Colorado, and then again outside of Steamboat chasing elk. The ptarmigan hunt seemed like it was a little overkill until a front hit us in the middle of the night and I was able to zip up the ThermoGills I was using to vent heat and I was snug as a bug without having to pile on a bird dog or two for warmth. The elk hunt this year for second season is where the bag really paid the bills. We got 22" of snow dumped in our area over the course of two weeks. In a flimsy three season tent that didn't stop the wind at all the Stalker 0 was my fortress. As long as you could keep it dry and fluffy between sleeps it was excellent, and buying the Long allowed extra storage at the bottom to keep a Nalgene defrosted and batteries from freezing. Highly recommend the product to anyone looking for a zero degree bag.
I used the zero degree (long) in the Northwest Territories this Aug/September. This bag packs down smaller than any other down bag I've used, and it's insanely comfortable to sleep in - it was a little bit of luxury to have deep in the backcountry. Nemo's design allows you to turn easily if you're a side sleeper, without getting tangled up. Since that trip, I've used it here in Idaho on some nights in the 30's and found the venting to work perfectly.
This is the first bag I've slept in where I didn't have cold spots. It is rock solid on the construction side too. I opted for the long bag due to our fall temperatures in MT which allows me to stash socks and other things at the bottom to keep warm when I first crawl out. It was SUPER roomy and as a side and stomach sleeper was not in the least bit restricted while turning and moving at night in my sleep. It was also so warm in fact that I slept in my boxers in the bag in low 30 degree temps and even then had the zipper cracked halfway open. I tend to sleep cold and compared to my last bag 15/20 degree back I was still cold in. Also the mummy hood accommodated my backcountry pillow excellent. Also the foot box pressed against the dew on the inside of the tent from condensation and dried out very very quickly. Also the stuff/compression sack that comes with it made it fit into my bag very easily. This, hands down, is my favorite bag I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Can't wait until the temps dip into the single digits because I know for a fact I'll be really warm and get a good nights rest, no questions!
