Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by a HUGE upgrade After realizing that my 10+ year old down and synthetic sleeping bags were too heavy and too bulky I decided an upgrade was needed, enter the MHW Phanton 32. I've always been skeptical about using down sleeping bags, especially when I'm out backpacking for more then a few days at a time, but this bag is AMAZING. The first time I used it was up in the tetons during a downpour. Admittedly I was wary of my bag getting wet, but any water or condensation from the tent walls quickly beaded up and never soaked through. Even when temps got into the low 20's I was always toasty in some lightweight long underwear. Not only is this bag super warm, but it weighs nothing and compresses down smaller than a 1L nalgene! Great job mhw! Pros: -Weighs nothing! -Compresses down small than a 1L nalgene - Doesn't soak up water Cons: - leaves a nice dent in a college kids wallet (good thing I have promotive) September 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ultra Light vs Warmth Took my new Phantom 32 to Gorgonio Wilderness for an overnight. The bag is perfect in regards to weight and pack size, best UL investment so far! Although, it was slightly uncomfortable when the temps dipped into low 40's, mind you that we were sleeping outside without a tarp or tent. I had a down sweater and thermal base layer, still was a bit cold. Overall great performance! June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with this sleeping bag. I purchased this bag as an upgrade to my existing backpacking sleeping bag. The main reasons I chose this bag were the weight and size when packed. I've used this bag on a half dozen occasions now, with the coldest night being a 16 degree F night. I remained quite comfortable in the bag, while wearing the appropriate sleep clothes. On nights where the temperature has been well with the bags specified limits, I've slept in shorts and t-shirt and remained very comfortable. The materials used on the bag are very lightweight and seem very fragile, but to date I've had no issues and expect the bag to be around for quite a while. The provided stuff sack seems a bit too tight, I have to really work to get the last bits of the bag into the stuff sack. I'm a little concerned that really jamming it in there may damage the down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag This is a great lite bag, well worth it if you are looking to shave ounces off your sleeping system. I use it in conjunction with a Klymit Interix X-Frame pad inside the Phantom 32. This combination has keep me plenty warm so far, plus my sleep system is down to 32 ounces total (including stuff sacks). At 5'7" and 160 lbs I have plenty of room inside the bag. The zipper takes some getting used to and you can't horse it, or else you may get jammed up. The M.H. stuff sack is pretty tight once the entire bag is in, but takes up little room in the pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 32 Degrees - Not I was very disappointed in this product. I am currently and Appalachian Trail thru-hiker and purchased this because of its packability and lightweight material. I am quite a ways in and have stayed cold. Two nights ago it was 42 degrees and I had on thick socks, thermal leggings, underwear, shorts, a wool upper base layer, rain pants, rain coat, and toboggan. I had chills all night and it was 42 degrees!!! Last night it was 53 and I had all of that on minus the rain layer and was chilly. And it was 53!!! My advice, don't purchse this. At least get the 15 degree and it might be closer to what you want. I was hoping this bag could get me to Maine, but with many summer nights in the mountains dipping into the 50's I am going to have to search elsewhere. Where this bag makes up in weight, I will have to carry extra clothing just to stay warm. And I am a minimalist. April 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just right! I hiked the warmer part of the PCT (NoCal and Oregon) with this bag, and never wanted anything else. There are lighter bags with similar ratings out there, but they're often less roomy and to actually stay warm in those one has to shake the down into the right areas, make sure to sleep on top of the zipper and so on. Or, they simply don't deliver on the rating. I find the Phantom true to rating, comfortable to sleep in and a very light sleeping bag considering the features. And man, even long-distance hiking, I'll happily carry an oz or two for a good nights sleep! January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Go-to Bag I recently purchased this bag for a backpacking trip to New Zealand's South Island, and it performed superbly. I couldn't believe how small the bag packs down to, and I didn't even notice the weight in my pack. As for the temperature rating, it got down to the mid-30's and rainy near the base of Mt. Cook and I slept comfortably. The DryQ Down stayed fluffy in wet conditions. This is my new go-to 3-season bag. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phantom 32 I Recently bought and used the Phantom 32 on a lightweight backpacking trip to Humphrey's Basin in the High Sierras (11,300') campsite. I don't know what age and elevation temperature testing is done but the bag performed well in 40 degree morning temps at that elevation for a 68 year old lean man. I don't have any "R" factor to speak of. I wear a balaclava and keep my face out of the bag. I am 6' tall and the bag was a good fit. I used the Phantom 15 degree bag last week near the same area (Piute Pass) but knew the weather was going to be stormy and wanted the extra margin of safety. I had to backpack the Phantom 32 from the west (Florence Lake) (20 miles) and the Phantom 15 only 10 miles coming over Piute Pass from the east (Bishop). I count every gram of weight depending on the distance I have to carry it. P.S. This is the Sierra National Forest and you can take your dog with you. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I've been looking for in a sleeping bag I recently decided that the time had come for me to upgrade my sleeping bag situation. My previous bag was a synthetic fill bag with a 20 degree rating. However I am rarely backpacking in temps that low, and the bag was relatively heavy and bulky compared to comparable down bags. So when I saw that Mountain Hardwear updated their Phantom 32 with the water repellent down, I jumped at the chance to pick one up. Having just used this bag on a wet backpacking trip this weekend in the White Mountains, NH where the temps got down to the low-to-mid 30's, I can attest to the fact that it is very warm and extremely comfortable. Waking up on a rainy morning was hard to get going as the bag was so comfortable, and it did not lose any loft with all the moisture that was in the air. The size was ample enough to allow for side sleeping, yet I didn't feel a single cold spot. It also had a small pocket inside which was perfect for my headlamp and glasses. My favorite two features of the bag however was the light weight and the compactness of the bag when compressed. These two features are HUGE upgrades from my previous bag as it weighs only 1lb 6oz, and takes up very little space in my pack. While hiking, I could barely notice that I even packed a sleeping bag! The one gripe that I have with the bag is the zipper can be a bit tricky, however I liked the other features so much that I did not let it reduce my rating. All in all, this is a great bag that will be my new go to kit for all of my future excursions. June 10, 2013
