    I use a Western Mountaineering 0* bag for backpack hunting-very spendy but light and warm. I use a Cabelas -20* Summit bag for basecamp hunting-great bag for the price.

    Cabela's bag

    I was looking at the Summit 2 bag. I'm 6' 2'' and I wonder if I would need the regular or long?

    will you be stuffing extra clothes or even your boots inside the bag to warm/dry out.if so the long might be better,if not the reg will work.Just remember the more roomy the bag the longer it takes your body to heat up and maintain.

    Sleeping bags...

    If you get a synthetic bag, get a flannel liner. This will not only make the bag more comfortable, but will keep it cleaner and more comfortable. Did I mention it would be more comfortable?

    Nice thick Therma-Rest pad underneath too. One of them real thick ones.

    i've slept in a cabelas trekker mummy bag. i was living in the bush in alaska as a packer. never froze to death, even in our tent.

    it's a cheap one too.

    i hunt from horseback mostly, and now i use a slumberjack inside a canvas liner my wife sewed up for me. works awesome! a 20 degree bag plus the canvas keeps me nice and toasty in wyoming (i guide hunters there now)

    I have a peak -20 and a quest 0 and in cold weather the peak keeps me toasty warm even in a tent in 0 weather its still very comfortable however I had my heavy thermals on in it ,it was too hot with full clothes .one of the others had a 0 bag unsure of the brand , fully clothed and they were cold . I guess it just depends on the person thats in the bag, how full your bladder is helps to generate some heat also , does for me anyway .

    Are you going to be packing it in or have horses to carry it?

    We'll be riding in on horses and sleeping in wall tents on a cot with a pad.
