Who Killed the Kilo Plus?

I've had my eye on the REI Kilo Plus sleeping bag for some time now. It was a really fantastic looking bag, lightweight and rated to 0 degrees F. Recently it vanished off the REI website and I haven't been able to find it anywhere since. Turns out it was discontinued. Says Nick the REI Product Information Specialist:

Unfortunately, it does appear that the Kilo Plus +0 has been discontinued. We are redoing our sleeping bag line for 2009. They should start arriving in January of 2009.

He did suggest a few other bags, such as the Marmot Never Summer, which incidentally was the second on my list of desired 0 degree down bags. It would be a tough decision, whether to go for the Marmot bag or wait for the new REI bags in January, but fortunately I don't have to make up my mind since I don't have the money for either right now!
