Last year, I bought an REI Travel down bag. It is rated as +45. It weighs 27 ounces and compresses to about 6x12 inches. I paid $109.00 for it. I hiked in VA during June, July, & Aug. including many nights above 4,000 feet. What I like about this bag the most is the double zipper. I can zip up the bag then indoor the bottom so during a cold morning I can walk around while wearing the bag. I used this bag in a hammock, if that makes any difference. Hope that helps.

I got a Western Mountaineering "Highlight" a few years ago
and have been happy with it. Compresses to the size of a
football. Weighs nothing. Not a lot of cushioning (of
course) and I don't care for the 1/2 zipper. but, I love the
