This summer I値l be doing a lot of beach camping/hiking, and by next year I値l hopefully be able to do my first bike tour, but first I need equipment! So what brand of sleeping bag would you recommend? I知 looking into synthetic fill since I live in the great NorthWet (Seattle area) and will end up enduring who-knows-what on a tour, but I知 open. Would 3-Season be fine, or should I go colder for hammock use? I'm 5'6 if that matters.
I can稚 find anything used, but I do have an REI gift card. Something like this http://www.rei.com/product/47921572.htm looks good to me, but I want to hear from the experts first! As always the lighter, warmer, and compact, the better. I'd rather not go much above $150 if possible, but I'd also hate to skimp out. A warm nights sleep is kinda important
Thank you for your time!
