So i'm looking for a new sleeping bag for my first extended hiking trip (Northern Michigan on the NCT). My pack currently is just sporting a wool blanket... but, at about 5 lbs... it's no bueno. So I'm looking for a bag that meets the following requirements:
1) As light as possible, with an included compression bag.
2) Packable to a size that will allow it to fit easily within my Large ALICE pack, not on the outside. (YES... I know all about my ALICE pack and its weight. It is what it is.)
3) Rated to 0 degrees up to 20 degrees farenheight. But no more, or less than that margin.
4) Price 150 dollars or below. This is the most crucial part. I can bend on the rest to an extent... but I absolutely will not/cannot spend more than that. Cheaper the better.
