    Default WTB Sub 2-Pound 3 season Sleeping Bag/Quilt in Long Size($250 or Less)

    Title saids it all. Looking to buy a sleeping bag that is less than 900 grams, fits me (I'm 6'2) and is rated down to somewhere between 20F-32F. Thanks!

    Borrow 20 bucks from a friend, and get an Enlightened Equipment Revelation 20. Might be touch more for "long". I've cowboy camped in mine and woken up with ice on it, and I didn't freeze to death, so they're definitely good down below 30.

    28 F rating is real, foot box is narrow, I am 6 ft - (2inches more would be fine but that is it), at 17 you could grow, I did, it is 36 oz though, comes with a nice mesh storage and light compression sack:

    if you go with a quilt, do not forget the added weight/ expense for a hood - but this is better than the 65$:

    Hood is nice but not required, but attention to extra head insulation is a good point. If it's close to 20, I'll have my hooded down jacket or at least a good beanie/neck gaiter combo

    I often recommend the hammock gear econ quilts for those on a budget. $175 for the long, 24 oz, and a good option. Overstuffing a couple oz wouldn't hurt if you are going to approach 20f, or you can just bring slightly warmer clothing for those occasions (eg: a down jacket with a bit more fill)

    Are you still looking for a bag? I have a Mountain Hardwear Phantom Spark 28 Degree. Weighs in around 1lb 6oz. Also have a Marmot Helium 15 Degree which comes in at 2lb 1 oz.
