Therm-a-Rest Auriga Blanket: 35 Degree Down
Weight matters even more when the weather's warm. Fortunately, that's when the Therm-A-Rest Auriga Blanket really shines. Rated at 35 degrees Fahrenheit, the Auriga is made with ultralight, ultra-packable 750 fill-power goose down to keep you moving fast and light. The Auriga packs a generous amount of heat, though, considering it only weighs about a pound and a half. Full-length draft tubes and snap-and-loop integration with most camp mattresses eliminate drafts, and the blanket design won't restrict movement.

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist
||Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight
bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember,
it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating.
Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree
||Down or Synthetic? Each
have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces
less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can
just toss it in the dryer.
||Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A
sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping
if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight
sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super
thick or winter-style one.
||Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where
you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15
degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and
cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often
used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the
mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
