    We're going to be tent camping, but not backpacking, so super lightweight isn't a criteria. I'm 5'-8" 200#. Suggestions?

    Moderators:

    Please move this to the appropriate forum. I'm unsure where it belongs.

    For a camp bag where you are going horse back or camping out of your truck should be warm and comfortable. Don’t get one that’s cut to narrow. Either down or a synthetic fill is good but the down is spendy. I have 3 bags. My camp bag is a older Northface synthetic fill rated at -20. Very comfortable down to about 10 wearing only skivvies. The back pack bag is down and my summer bag is a wore out Cabela’s bag. So I too can recommend the Northface bag from experience. Good luck on your choice.

    Gary Olen has a 9# bag that's -30f rated for 69.95. Not a bad deal at all. But it aint light.

    I am alergic to down and have a NF Snowshoe. It keeps me warm and is pretty light for a synthetic bag. If it fits you it's a good value.
