I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip-up next week for 5 days just west of Denver. This will be my first backpacking trip-up and the only sleeping bag I have is a large, down container 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 suppose 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 suitcases 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 container and tell me if there are any warning flags with the bag? It sits in the perfect place in my budget and the weight and size of the bag seem perfect for backpacking.
