Best bag I have ever owned
I wanted to put this review out due to the bag not having many. 1st - the where. I was in Colorado for 2nd rifle from the end of October until mid November. We slept at 7800 for a few nights averaging low 30's, we slept at 11k for a few nights averaging in the 20's and then dropped back to 8k for a snowstorm which the weather averaged the teens at night. Now I want to preface that I did have a r4 rated mat and a 4 season tarp over the top of me pitched as low as possible. That r4 mat probably helped more than I know, but what I will say Is I never woke up cold. The bag gave me concerns at first because the down gets cold just like a blanket on your bed, but let me tell you when zipper is up the heat soaks in and holds within minutes. I purchased the xl because I have a wide chest and I had plenty of room, to move and roll with minimal sleeping bag pull. I don't like to feel restricted and I never did once. Several of the ten nights I woke up and unzipped to my hammock being covering in ice and my tarp but I was steaming coming out of the bag. This is by far the best sleep system I have ever owned. It lifts very quickly, and is very roomy with plenty of heat to the point of almost being hot some nights. I have never owned a bag where it was snowing outside and I couldn't tell, I just never knew what I was getting up to because it was so comfortable inside. I would give this bad a 10/10 and highly recommend it to anyone who hunts or camps and likes to stay warm. If I had one con to the KSB at all it would be to thicken the footbox, just because it is probably the only place that it maybe was a little chillier, and honestly I was in very bad weather with permafrost in my shelter on a very cold night, but my feet never got cold. I could just tell that it's the thinnest section due to narrow nature of a mummy. It was by far my best upgrade this year. I would highly recommend a good mat inside of it and it will be money for you.

Decent but not great
First off, for the price, this is pretty good pad. I had bought it for my wife but the V-shapes don't fit her size very well as it has ridges or valleys in the wrong places for her. For me the ridges and valleys match my shoulders, hips, knees, etc and I find it comfortable. The biggest grip I have is the R-value is way off. My old thermarest has a R-value of 4.0 and it is significantly warmer the Klymit V's 6.5 R-value. All in all decent pad, good price, fairly comfortable but Klymit needs to get on the international standard of rating the R-value.
