I agree with you, down bags are still my first choice but you still do need to take some precautions like you said above. Syn bags (Primaloft One only) can also be a good choice under the right conditions but they are no match compared to good down bags. Both of my bags are breathable and I never had major issues with condensation/wetness, even when I bivvied on snow. I am glad I invested the money. I think I have had my MH Banshee for at least 10-12 years and is still as good as they day I bought it.

+1 on the 10-12 year old Banshee being timeless. I have been highly impressed with how functional my MH Banshee is this many years later. With that said, my next bag will be a Western Mountaineering, probably Apache (15f) even for winter- my lady got an Antelope, is a cold sleeper, and it's hard to imagine how cold it would have to get for her to not be toasty- WM is WAY conservative with their temps, unlike most.

Best of luck!

Has anyone consider a Wiggys bag ??
the 4 lbs Superlight does the job very well for 0 F!

A vapor barrier should be used inside the bag, not outside.
