      I have only ever used a full bag, the most recent being for 
relatively mile weather -- a Sierra Designs 20 degree bag.  Can't think of 
the name just now, but it's a fairly lightweight bag that REI was selling a 
few years ago.

      I'm sure others on the list will have more experience than me, so 
let's hear it...

Pet peeve: breath is a noun,  breathe is a verb (When you take a breath, 
you breathe...)
