I’m going on a short backpacking camping journey next week for 5 days only west of Denver. This will be my first backpacking journey 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, average construct. Where we’re headed is at 11,000 ft and the low temps at night get to about 40 degrees which I think 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 for the purposes of the encompass. I was looking at the following bags 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 purse 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 purse seem perfect for backpacking.
