I would like a new bag or quilt for weight and space savings but I'm worried I'll spend $250 and not be as comfortable as I am now. I don't think my synthetic bag compresses very much under me. Will a quilt be as warm???
no need to spend much cash to try a quilt. make one from a cheap sleeping bag.
i've made several that way... although they weren't necessarily the cheapest bags... just a light down bag i got on sale for about $90.00.
but you could use most any bag to make a quilt & see how you like it.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
