I upgraded from my PLUQ to an incubator and now want to upgrade my MSS patrol bag as well.
Hopefully you guys can help.
I have a gift card to Cabelas for $100 and my personal budget is another $100 tops, so help me pick.
I am considering pretty hard the Kelty Cosmic Down 20, it weighs the same as a patrol bag and should be much warmer, but I am not opposed to synthetic either since the maintenance is less and they are more water resistant.
Does anyone have any experience with the Columbia Reactor? Slightly heavier but it has that neat reflective lining.
My plan was to keep the system the same for 3 season, using the bag as a quilt in the summer and zipped up as a sleeping bag on the colder nights, paired with the incubator it should be plenty warm.
Winter time I have extra gear I can layer into the system to dip down to 0, I have done it before but the loadout on my homemade peapod and underquilt was super heavy, hopefully not so much next winter.
