I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip-up next week for 5 days only west of Denver. This will be my first backpacking journey and the only sleeping bag I have is a large, down suitcase that weighs a ton, so I’m in the market for a better one.
I’m male, 6′ 1″, wide-shouldered, median build. 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 pouch. I sleep hot in bed at home, often exposing my legs or feet from under the covers. I was looking at the following pouches and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the purse, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the suitcase and tell me if there are any cautioning flags with the suitcase? It sits in the perfect place in my budget and the weight and sizing of the suitcase seem perfect for backpacking.
