Just getting back into backpacking after a three year hiatus. Overhauling my gear and looking for a new sleeping bag. Old bag is a Kelty Stratus (35F, 2lbs 3oz). I'm 5'7" and have tried out the ultralite in-store and seem to fit well in the short (though it is for 5'6" and less).
I have narrowed it down to two bags (2.5 bags really). I have a few questions.
Option 1: Summerlite for 85% of the time with a Sea to Summit Reactor Plus liner for more versitility (I'm leaning this way...cheaper and lighter?)
Option 2: Ultralite for a one bag arsenal.
1- Overall thoughts on choices so far.
2- Experience with these bags (including liner).
3- Other options.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.
