I’m going on a short backpacking camping journey next week for 5 days simply west of Denver. This is likely to be my first backpacking journey 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, median build. 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 container. I sleep hot in bed at home, often exposing my legs or feet from for the purposes of the covers. I was looking at the following containers and decided on the Marmot Quark 30. There aren’t many reviews out there on the purse, so I was wondering could someone more experienced could please look at the pouch 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 sizing of the purse seem perfect for backpacking.
