I am looking for a sleeping bag to convert into two UQs.
I found a perfect candidate except for one thing ---- I dont think it will keep me warm.
Its 80% down, rectangular, 85" long (This measurement does not include a hood or such. It is actually 85" which means I may get two 42" wide UQs) It compresses fairly well. One side already has a channel for a shock cord suspension. It has a good zipper I can salvage and it is cheap.
I am worried about it keeping me warm. Its 80% down but I dont know the grade. I am assuming the lowest there is. It is labelled 20 oz fill. It has 1-1.5" loft at the most. If I laid my hand on it gently with hardly any pressure it compressed to 0.0".
I didnt have a tape measure at the store so I took pictures next to my shoe for scale. Some pictures are misleading. It did not come up past the top of my shoe. The bag is opened as a blanket in these pictures so it is one layer thick.
What do you think? I would like to use it in 30 - 40 degrees. BTW its Sports Authorities in house brand Alpine Design.
