Does anyone know if there is a significant difference between the Montbell Super Spiral and just Spiral bags? I know that the SS bags have more stretch, but I have at 56" shoulder circumference, so it seems like the 75" that the Spiral offers should be enough.

I guess my bottom line question is: is the Super Spiral worth the added weight and cost?

I've owned both and wouldn't pay extra for the Super Spiral. However, I believe the regular size Spiral Down Hugger only fits up to 5'10" so you may have to size up to the Long if you're taller than that.

I ordered both from backcountry.com (they are having a great sale) and they will pay for return shipping for whichever I decide not to keep. I will post my thoughts and maybe a few photos once I receive them.
