does FF have an annual sale (like 10% off anything in the store kind of sale)?

up.gif Flicker 20 is really the perfect for bag/quilt for all three season conditions.

do you think the 20 is overkill compared to the 30?

The 20F bag weighs 3 oz more than the 30F bag.  It's a quilt, so you can let some drafts in on warm nights, but on cold ones when you want that extra warmth, how much will you have to carry to make up for it?

Depends how hot or cold you run but 20 seems like about the sweet spot.

There's no hood?  It looks like an amputee - with its head cut off.  Compare it to this 20 degree Western Mountaineering bag:

looks like 29oz vs 25oz (WM vs FF). i think i'll wear my hat for the extra 4oz, since i'll have it anyway.

A quilt is really a lot more comfortable and versatile than a mummy bag.

^^ until its not.  I did the quilt thing for a while then went back to mummy bags

FF's sales usually are pretty underwhelming.  You are better off buying a next to new bag off of a tech bro who over-invested.

I own a FF Swallow mummy bag and down jacket. I also own down products from Western Mountaineering and Hammock Gear. All high end quality and made in the USA. The quality of down from Western Mountaineering and Hammock Gear is far superior. I will not be going back to FF. Also, in the past FF advised about production being moved to China.

Let someone else pay the beta price...

That is how I obtained nearly all of my gear.  I have a home music studio equipped with Ebay deluxe gear.  So many lawyers, doctors and techno geeks with more money than motivation or time to actually learn how to play, they get bored and sell gear at 50% discount when the next wild hair comes along.  Packing gear is similar, people don't realize that fancy gear does not cause a person to become physically fit just by its purchase, regardless of $$$ and the entitlement that comes along with it.  Just like a PRS guitar does not come with talent in the case.

Plus buying second hand keeps stuff out of the landfills...but it does lack in bragging cred...I wear my lack of wealth on my sleeve.

And I can resell the gear for what I paid for it if it doesn't work out for me.

Can't buy me love...

I have an FF 20 degree bad I bought used and I think I saved a couple of hundred bucks.
