Hi boys and gals.

I am preparing for the hiking season here and missing a sleeping bag (mine was successfully lost during air drying).

What I am looking for is:
A good lightweight sleeping bag (max. 2lbs) That will be warm enough in 40-30F environment around 50-80$

Any suggestions?

Theres alot of high tech bags aroung breadloaf size that are good to 30 degrees. Mine is a Slumberjack, and was about 70 bucks. A good self inflator works best for me, no blue foam rubber or air mattress with large volume for me.http://www.shopping.com/sport-and-ou.../products?nc=1

Big Agnes .. has a built in compartment for a sleeping pad so that you don't roll off of it. Much pricier than what you want .. but understand you get what you pay for. Comfort and quality isn't cheap

I've been liking LaFuma, lately. They tend to over-rate their temperature ratings, but they make very nice lightweight bags. I have 2 that are the size of nalgene bottles and one a little bigger than a football that's treated so you're not supposed to need a tent and it'll shed water.

Warm 'n Light and eXtreme-Pro are the models I have.

That one I had in Israel I thought worked great. Think REI even has a few on sale or something. I'd check there. You can ship it to my place again, and I'll bring iit on by. But this time you pay for the plane ticket *shipping and handling*

Snugpak junglebag, comes with a mosquito net, square toed, compresses to 6"x6", unzips out to a blanket if you want. Black, Green, Brown ... civilian version is called the TravelBag, and is blue. RH or LH zip available. Love mine, best $ I've spent on a sleep system in a long time.

I had the REI Traveler I believe it's called. Seems they actually dont have same one I had on their site anymore. It's a good bag, I used it in -8 F last month and was shocked how well I was in it. Granted I was wearing multiple layers of clothing, plus was inside of a snow shelter. But still for a 45F sleeping bag, that's saying something.

Both look good. I'd likely go with the Eureka, but if that Snugpak has a mesh cover for face..that'd be tempting if ya plan to sleep without a tent.
