Sierra Designs Backcountry Quilt SYN: 40 Degree Synthetic
Don't haul a sleeping bag around when all you need is a sweet blanket like the Backcountry Quilt SYN from Sierra Designs. The poly-fiber synthetic insulation keeps you nice and toasty, and, unlike down insulation, it won't give up when you spill a bit of wine on it around the fire before heading to bed. An integrated hide-away hood really elevates the Backcountry Quilt above other, similar-style choices. Full-length, insulated arm and hand pockets along the side allow the quilt to not only tuck around you easily, but also lets it move with you as you roll around, thereby avoiding having the quilt open up and letting in lots of cold air.

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!
