    Sleeping bag for back country?

    Hey guys Im trying to find a good lighter bag for the back country, I know you get what you pay for but im trying to not pay for one lined with gold.

    I want a +20 bag or something close, that is low weight, durable, packs easy, and isnt to hard to care for. Just kinda fishing around for ideas!

    Thanks!

    Mine isn't cheap, but it is very nice, very light, and you don't roll off your pad ...

    I use it for early season. It stays unzipped during the summer. When temps get down to under 20 I go with my 0 degree Kelty, but this year I will get a -20 synthetic BA. It is six pounds, but the horses will be carrying it.

    I have been in the Zirkel down to around 15 without being chilled, and I am not a warm sleeper.

    I was thinking of getting the BA Blackburn SL 0 degree.What do you think about this bag unzipped for the early season with no insulating pad?I'm trying to get away with only buying one bag for early and late?? It weighs 3# for the long..... Do you have to buy the pad to stay warm on the underside? If so which of their pads are best?

    Marmot hydrogen or helium are both great bags.

    I have the Kelty Cosmic 20 degree bag, It was reasonably affordable. I plan on getting a liner for as well. I am 5' 11" and I needed a Long.

    I sell Kelty Cosmic 20* at the shop I work at. It has been probably our most popular bag in that price range. ($110)
