  • Summary: At entry-level price and above entry-level quality, this is an excellent 3-season bag that can withstand mild winter temps. It's just not very lightweight at 4 lbs.
  • Pros: True to temp rating, Entry-level price, with better than entry-level quality, Two-way zip on both sides for easy ventilation and entry/exit
  • Cons: Compressed size (it’s a biggin), Weight = 4 lbs. (1.81kg)

  • Summary: This synthetic bag will take you where you need to go, on a budget and in style. Its rating runs true (depending on how warm of a sleeper you are, of course), and will stave off the cold even in shoulder seasons. It is a must-have sleeping bag for those new weekend warriors and those on a budget.
  • Pros: Good price, Packs down well, Durable
  • Cons: Zipper issues, Not the lightest

  • Summary: Providing an excellent value in price, the Marmot Trestles 15 is true to its temperature rating and has kept me warm for many years, even in damp/wet conditions. At 4 lbs 1oz (for long size), the bag is a bit on the heavy side for long trips.
  • Pros: Price, Quality, Durability
  • Cons: Weight, Zipper snags easily
