Not sure if this is the correct spot to post this but didn't know where else to put it. I purchased last spring a Kelty Trekker 20 sleeping bag from Target for $89.00. My son used this bag on a 75 mile, 12 day trek to Philmont scout ranch and loved it. Was Christmas shopping the other day and found 2 of them at Target on clearance for $62.00. Bought them both! Anyway, he felt this was a really good bag even at full price. Definitely a good starter bag. It was plenty warm, weighs less than 3 pounds and packs down to a nice size for packing.
