I'm on the lookout for a way to reduce the weight in my hubby's pack as well as my own, and after weighing most of our gear, I discovered that his sleeping bag weighs 4lbs! He is currently using an REI Syn Cat 20*F bag, which is more of a barrel shape that gives him more room. When I asked him what he liked/disliked, he said he'd never been too cold in it but often gets too hot. He also said he liked how the bag has a lot of room, but would like more. I was thinking maybe a quilt would be a good idea for him, as he tosses and turns a lot when he sleeps. He's a big guy (6' tall, 250lbs), and is using a Big Agnes Insulated Air Core as his sleeping pad.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a wide bag or a quilt that would suit him? I was looking at some of the Go Lite stuff and the Vario bag caught my eye because it looks pretty wide. I would appreciate it if some of the larger members of the forum could chime in on this :)
