Classic, not impressed
Draft collar is too small and bunches up when collar and hood is drawn, thus being nonfunctional. The material bunches so much when you draw the collar and hood in, so as to be cumbersome, uncomfortable, and allows air in. The zipper draft tube does not seal as well as it could. It is an OK bag but not up to it's reputation. How the other reviewer used it a -5 is beyond me (the wood stove probably helped). It was easy to resell and I am MUCH happier with my Mountain Hardware Lamina. This is how a bag should be made.

A Classic
The cats meow has been around forever and for good reason...reliable warmth and durability, at an affordable price.

Great Bag,, Excellent Value
I've a Cat's Meow since 1978. It was one of the best investments in gear I've ever made. Works as fine as when I bought it. Not bad for almost 30 years, it's lasted thru 3 stuff sacks. It has been all over, US, Canada, Europe, Asia;,never let me down. Although it is only rated @ 20 degress it has seen -5 F and did a passable job. The new Cat's Meow is lighter with more advanced materials but it keeps with the concept of a affordable quality bag.
