First, this probably isn't the kind of question you were thinking it is. I'm in a bit of a predicament here, and I wanted to get some feedback from folks and see what folks thought of my reasoning.
I have two sleep systems. Both use the same pad (currently), so it's really a discussion of bags/quilt. First is a Kelty Lightyear 45D bag (45* rating and 31 ounces). The second is a GoLite Fur (20* rating and 29 ounces). I got good deals on both of these here on BPL, but now I'm kind of stuck with what to do.
Next weekend, I'll be on an overnight trip on the Pine Mountain Trail. The low's only expected to get to 51 (it's not your typical mountain weather there, let me tell you). Even though I know ratings usually suck, I've taken the Kelty down that far before with no problems. However, I can't help but think the GoLite will be to warm, which could lead to problems in and of itself.
Now, for the longest time, I'd been planning on taking the GoLite due to weight, but now that I've got a better idea of the weather, I'm thinking it might be better to go a couple of ounces heavier and not risk sweating during the night.
What say you all?
Who thinks this will be so much better when he gets his FF 40* quilt :D
