    Eureka Silver City 30* bag

    Well, I picked up a Eureka Silver City sleeping bag on sale and thought I would give it a try as a top quilt. It is rated to 30* and weighs 2.3 pounds. If it proves to keep me warm down to 30, maybe high 20's with a good base layer...maybe, then I am sure I can shave a few ounces off by removing the zipper and cutting the hood off. Packs down fairly small too. I will try to get a test hang in it before too long and report back. Not bad for $40

    Looking forward to the review

    BTW...where did you get this bag for $40? Cheapest I see online is $50.

    Thanks for the info!

    Just found this bag at Cabela's for $39.99 in case anyone else was looking. Seems like the price is right.

    I've had this bag for a few but have never had it anywhere near 30. I'm interested if it really can make 30. Its a great bag especially for the price but I have my doubts about its low temp capabilities. Keep us informed. Thanks.

    Going to be in the 40's the next few nights, so might have to wait until next week or two to test it properly
