    the tag (where filled/unfilled weight and lot number are identified) says 'intermediate' on top, but 'extreme cold' is printed on both sides of the bag itself. Inside tag identifies feather/down and polyester fill and reads, in part

    SLEEPING BAG, EXTREME COLD, TYPE II
    DLA100-78-c-0306
    8465-01-033-8057

    I know it's not an m1949, as I had one before and this is much heavier and feels more like the monofiber bags than the lighter goose down of my old M1949 and it doesn't roll quite as small as the M1949 did, though it's easier to get all the air out than the othergreen bags I've had, which had all monofiber filling (if I recall the term correctly; they weren't goose down)

    I have no camera, so I can't provide pictures.

    I google search on the DLA number revealed nothing, and, unlike my old M1949, I was unable to locate any model number on the bag.

    Am I correct in concluding this is a 20 below (-20F) ECW bag as the printing on the bag itself implies, rather than a 15F ICW bag as the smaller outside tag (w/ the lot # info) might at first seem to imply?
