"1500 Is great"

Companies often build things to have a very temporary life, to sell again. First Ascent is an exception, they built the 1500 and 900 so well, that after 6 years, I still love mine to bits and because they build them to last, I am going to invest in the 1900 next, knowing it should meet all expectations. This seems like a good middleground for tentless motocamping and a lockdown budget. :)

"Fantastic Gear Investment"

Really an awesome piece of gear. I bought mine in 2014 and I've taken it on all my camping and roadtrips since then. I've used it down to just below 0 degrees. The synthetic filling has kept me completely toasty warm. The construction of the bag is awesome too no threads out of place in 7 years. No regrets - this is a high quality product and was a great investment.
