New & improved maybe, but it's no North Face Himalayan Suit (sadly no longer available, it retailed at 1000 USD): http://www.campcraft.co.uk/cgi-bin/site-editor.pl/8/-ecommerce?action=item;item=TOAOO2;eid=682366

This guy wore one in Siberia: http://www.wideview.it/travel/Yakutia_2007/info.htm#3

"Using the Himalayan Suit, I didn't have any problem with the cold, even after several hours outside at -40 and -50. I have to say that at -20 the suit is perhaps too warm and can be used only for light hiking, but below -35 it is just perfect...".

I actually remember the older version of this sleeping bag. It was one of the first times I ever came into your blog. A guy was posing in the sleeping bag wear and it was very funny. I remember that. I shall consider this an anniversary of sorts then. This iteration (your word) is equally ugly by the way.
