  1. Mountain Design "wanderer 200" sleeping bag.

  9. Definitely the Trek TK III by Sea to Summit. I find the mummy style bags to be warm, but too restricting -- this one is the perfect middle ground.

  10. I have yet to find the ideal bag. The best I can recommend is a Mountain Hardware Polarguard 3D. It's a woman's 45 degree bag. The good news is that it is a rare bag that actually fits my short female body, and is reasonably lightweight. I hate the color(dark red) and would prefer brown or dark green. And don't let that 45 degree rating fool you, at 50 degrees I usually find myself cold. My 4 other bags suck even more. I'm strongly leaning toward switching to a system with an insertable pad with a respectable synthetic top quilt. I cannot be trusted with goose down.
