All depends on degree rating as you stated-
I have a 5* WM bag that is sub 3 lbs
I have a 35* WM bag that is sub 1lbs

all about how much you wanna spend. But a 3 season bag 1.5 lbs is a good "new technology weight"

Bag? Singular?

I have a 30* quilt @ 19 oz, a 29* bag @ 27 oz, a 0* bag @ 53 oz, and a 6* bag @ 47 oz. I'm selling the 27 oz and 53 oz bags because I have lighter options with minimal temp differences in the other two.

ATWokman, how heavy is your 0* bag?

21 ounce 21 degree rated Katabatic Gear Alsek "hybrid" quilt/bag, or a 30 degree MHW phantom, 22.5 ounces. I actually carry the slightly heavier, less warm 30 deg phantom many times to save wear/tear on the expensive 21 deg Katabatic gear if I don't need that extra warmth, like on the AT in the south.

WM Megalite 30*, 1.5lbs.

An EE 20* Accomplice 2 person quilt that my gf carries...so. Zero pounds, zero ounces. Also have a 30* Prodigy that weighs just over a pound and a Kelty 35* down bag that weighs about 18 ounces.

I use a 15 Big Agnes. Current version on their website is listed at 3 lbs.

1.5 lbs military 30 degree mummy bag. Rolls up into a small Walmart stuff sack. Love it!

WM Caribou 35F bag 1lb 5 oz
NF Blue Kazoo 20F 2lbs 4 oz

that's what I have, will never get rid of it

That makes 3 happy Antelope owners. Mine is an early Super DryLoft model. It's heavier than the current MF model. I've never weighed it and don't plan to. It's so nice that I don't care.
I also have a WM Alpinlite Long @ 2 pounds when I want to be light in warmer weather.
Very nice bags indeed.

Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy 800 3 Season Comfort Rating 27* Limit Rating 16* 2lbs 4oz LOVE!

Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy 800 3 Season Comfort Rating 27* Limit Rating 16* 2lbs 4oz LOVE!

I've been eyeing the Mobile Mummy collection since it came out. Do you wear it as your puffy as well, or do you carry a separate puffy? I'm pretty short and it seems like it would be more like a full length coat on me. Do you find that air seeps in through the arm holes or does the baffle block air pretty well?

WM Megalite, less than 2 pounds and rated to 30 degrees.
Montbell Thermal Sheet opened and used as a quilt in warmer weather, about 14 ounces and good to about 55 degrees? :)

I have a 30* synthetic Kelty bag that weighs 43 ounces. A little on the heavier side but it was in my budget. And it does what I need it to do.

Montbell Spiral#3 22.1oz (30 degree rating)

Sea to Summit Reactor Thermolite Mummy Bag Liner: 8.5 oz

I always use the liner. I've been comfortable in this combo well below freezing, without adding long underwear. I've never had the occasion to use it in seriously cold (0-25) weather, but I think I'd just add long underwear and socks and it would be fine. In the summer I use the liner alone.

The beauty of this bag is how roomy it is. It's also probably the cheapest 800 down bag under 2 pounds available. But it's probably not as rugged as an equivalent bag you'd find at REI.
