Loved this bag. Purchased it 9 months back and have used it for weeks in the backcountry. Took tons of research to fork out the money, but it was well worth it. Lightest most compactable bag on the market!
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
If your principal concern is keeping the bag dry in wet conditions, I would highly recommend going with a synthetic insulted bag, rather than down. While "dry" down treatments do exist, they constitute a light water resistant coating on the down feathers, rather than waterproof down.
There are certainly some advantages to getting a synthetic bag rather than down. While down is generally lighter and packs smaller, lightweight synthetic options exist that come close to equaling the weight and packability of down. Synthetic bags are far cheaper, will keep you warm even when wet, and are generally more durable and last longer than down bags. So for your situation, where you are looking for a bag to hold up to heavy use and abuse, particularly in wet environments, it seems a synthetic insulation may be your only viable option.
Below I have listed links to a few of my recommendations for lightweight 3-season synthetic bags:
