I’m going on a short backpacking camping journey next week for 5 days just west of Denver. This is likely to be my first backpacking journey and the only sleeping bag I have is a large, down purse 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 guess entails 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 cover-ups. I was looking at the following containers 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 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.
