"For temperature range this may be the winner for warmth to weight ratio"
If warmth to weight ratio is not enough for 3 season use the superb workmanship and design also factor into the decision for purchasing the Western Mountaineering Versalite. The money saved buying another manufacturer's sleeping bag may "pan out" for others but if I am not warm and comfortable the savings mean little. That goes beyond the single night out where loss of sleep is negotiable. For longer trips I'll pay the freight. Also, I have watched several websites for greater than 2 years looking for a used Versalite and only once has one been marketed ... in the wrong size. That you almost never see a used Versalite for sale ...Res ipsa loquitur.
"Fantastic bag pushing the limits of a summer bag"
This bag is fantastic, I can't recommend it enough. The temperature rating is very conservative for me, although I sleep quite warm. I can imagine being comfortable down to -4 or -5°C. There's tons of loft, and it's extremely light. You can tell the manufacturing quality right out of the box. The only issue I have is that the fabric seems to wick condensation inwards, rather than having it stay on the outside. It's no big deal, as the level of condensation is minimal, and the fabric breathes extremely well.
