I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip-up next week for 5 days just west of Denver. This is likely to be my first backpacking trip-up 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 guess means I’m aiming for a 30 -3 5 degree suitcase. I sleep hot in bed at home, often exposing my legs or feet from under the coverings. I was looking at the following containers and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the bag, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the suitcase and tell me if there are any advising flags with the container? It sits in the perfect place in my budget and the weight and size of the bag seem perfect for backpacking.
