I’m going on a short backpacking camping trip next week for 5 days merely west of Denver. This will be my first backpacking trip 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 construct. Where we’re headed is at 11,000 ft and the low temps at night get to about 40 degrees which I think means I’m aiming for a 30 -3 5 degree suitcase. I sleep hot in bed at home, often uncovering my legs or feet from under the coverings. I was looking at the following purses and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the pouch, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the suitcase and tell me if there are any warning 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.
