    A good bag won't be apreciated with out a good pad under it. I have now settled on the expeds.. My current is the Synmat UL 7. weighs in at under a pound and packs down smaller than a Nalgene bottle. I sleep as good as at home on it.

    I use the Big Agnes Hogpark 20. It's a mix between a mummy and a rectangle bag. I really like how the pad slips in the bottom of the bag so you don't slide off the pad.

    To the OP (and anybody else who's interested) - Sierra Trading post has an Exped waterproof 30 degree down bag that weighs 2lbs 10oz for $240 + $.99 shipping.

    Use coupon code VRY42097 to get the lower price.

    Here's the link:

    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    I have an old synthetic North Face that weighs about 4 lbs. I am comfy in it at 30ish, 20ish is a little bad.

    I just bought a Marmot Never Summer 0 deg. for the cold season. Its the 650 fill so it is relatively cheap, but almost 4 lbs(I think). This is the first down bag for me, so i didn't want to go for the gold quite yet.

    I am a huge believer in the sleeping pads. A good insulated sleeping pad can help save money as the cost curve gets really steep for high quality bags.

    2 little tricks I've learn is, u can go with a little warmer bad ,by 1 going to an army surplus and getting a camo poncho liner very warm and light ,2 is go to ur locale hardware store and buy a 6' piece of hot water heater wrap the silver stuff ,once again very light, put our good ground pad down ,then the hot water reflector then ur bag this does a great job of reflecting ur body heat back at u, and then if It's really cold u have the poncho line to put in the bag with u

    Western Mountaineering Alpinlite 20 degree - Hands down the best bag I have ever used in the back country. Choose a bag with good loft, high fill power and just as important, make sure you get a bag with a tightly woven and treated shell. It will help in ensuring your down never gets wet even in monsoon conditions.
