I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip next week for 5 days merely 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 build. Where we’re headed is at 11,000 ft and the low temps at night get to about 40 degrees which I guess means I’m aiming for a 30 -3 5 degree bag. I sleep hot in bed at home, often exposing my legs or feet from under the encompass. I was looking at the following suitcases and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the suitcase, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the pouch and tell me if there are any alerting flags with the pouch? It sits in the perfect place in my budget and the weight and sizing of the pouch seem perfect for backpacking.
