I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip-up next week for 5 days simply west of Denver. This is likely to be my first backpacking journey and the only sleeping bag I have is a large, down bag that weighs a ton, so I’m in the market for a better one.
I’m male, 6′ 1″, wide-shouldered, average construct. Where we’re headed is at 11,000 ft and the low temps at night get to about 40 degrees which I think entails I’m aiming for a 30 -3 5 degree container. I sleep hot in bed at home, often exposing my legs or feet from under the cover-ups. I was looking at the following bags and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the container, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the bag and tell me if there are any alerting flags with the purse? It sits in the perfect place in my budget and the weight and size of the suitcase seem perfect for backpacking.
