I am looking for a new sleeping bag.
Would anyone have good recommendations for me?
I need a 3 season bag, weight is an issue, and I am a rather short female :)

Thank you in advance!

down is sometimes lighter than synthetic, and with proper care it can last you more than 20 years. with heavy use the warmth of a synthetic bag can break down after 5 or 6 years.

i would also get a silk sleeping bag liner which will add breathable warmth and also help keep the inside of your bag clean, especially after a few days of backpacking. :D

and if you are REALLY cold (or if you are using a down sleeping bag in freezing and wet conditions) you should get an overbag to add warmth and draw the condensation layer away from the down. is this why you want a synthetic bag?
