Hey guys, so here is my situation. I have an old zero bag and probably what amounts to a 40 degree bag but I am looking for a brand spanking new one for 2013. I have been reading tons on this forum and other sites about bags but wanted to get your thoughts.
What I will need the new bag for: 1) Camping/backpacking in SoCal primarily. 2) I am taking a wilderness course with several days being spent snow camping.
Based on what I will be using the bag for mostly (camping in SoCal) I could get away with not having a zero bag but the snow aspect makes me think I should get one (a zero bag is required for the course but I think I can skate around that). Should I get a zero bag or should I look for more like a 15-20 degree bag with a fleece liner to get the best of both worlds? What do you guys think?
