I want to buy a synthectic, reasonably lightweight sleeping bag for touring this spring and summer..
I was wondering if anyone has ever tried Mountain Equipment Co-op's Nomad or Nighthawk sleeping bags. They are cheap, but I am afraid if, at 1.5Kg, they might be a bit on the heavy side.
Another alternative I am looking at is the North Face Cat's meow sleeping bag. It is a bit more expensive (about 70-80 Canadian $ more) than the former ones, but seem to be lighter and warmer. Any suggestions/comments?
