No drawback that I've found. I own that exact bag and have used it and a
Bibler Hooped bivy in temperatures down to the high teens. In fact, the
last time I did so, all I wore was lightweight long johns, a Polartec
fleece jacket, and a Polartec balaclava.  I was completely comfortable even
though it was a VERY windy night.
