Anyone ever tried these, know anyone that has, or has an opinion on them? They sound like a pretty good deal. I'm thinking about getting the rectangular bag so I have a little more room.

That looks like a pretty good deal, as long as you can live with a 20deg bag. Nice that it has a waterproof stuff sack.
I have the XPG Backpacker. I'm pleased with it in terms of weight, size and warmth (15deg). But it is mummy - but that's ok for me - I'll give up the extra leg room for warmth/weight. That's just me though.

I have a mummy and tried another in the past...I just can't sleep good in them. I'd rather pack a little more weight for comfort and sleep. Was thinking about getting a silk liner to go in it to add a little more warmth. So far I've only done some local trips and never needed anything more than a 30 degree bag. I have some real warm/heavy bags for colder weather, but wouldn't even consider packing those on a backpack trip.

FNH, personally I would be a little concerned about buying this without more info from the seller or manufacturer....like where it's made, what it's made of, how it's made and if there is any warranty or guarantee. I have found that if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Although it is not a huge amount of money so if it turns out not to be a great bag then you're not out a fortune, but still I would do a little more research on it. I have found that with Cabelas if you don't like it you can return it and you only lose out on the shipping costs.
If you do get the bag, let us know. I usually go out on three to four day trips and my bag is only 4400 ci, so space is generally at a premium (more so than weight) so that bag looks pretty good. Looks a little roomier than your standard mummy too. Worth a closer look.....IMO.
Even if the bag doesn't work out for huntin' camp, it would still be great to keep in a vehicle or something for emergencies.
