    40 degree cheap Target sleeping bag

    Is the $9.99 40 degree 75x33 sleeping bag at Target any good for anything? Under blanket? Over blanket? etc?

    i would suspect that it would be more suited for car camping. i have a strong feeling that the warmth to weight ratio would not be to good.
    but who knows... if you decide to get it, be sure & let us know how cool of temps it will keep you warm in & how much it weighs.

    Depending on the weight and bulk you could turn it into a quilt. I started a thread where I shaved a 28 oz summer bag down to 15 oz for a top quilt. With a little modifying I think you could turn it into a cheap underquilt.

    Can you post a link to it? I looked on their website and could not find anything. I am looking for a cheap bag with about that rating to turn into an underquilt for my dad's setup. I'm not really worried about weight. He cannot hike and only does canoe trips.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I searched their online site earlier today and didn't see it. I saw them in the brick and morter store. They had 6 or 7 of them.
