I'm looking for a sleeping bag for some backpacking. despite being out a lot each year I always come home in the evening but this year I'm going to do a few overnights while at fishing and so need a sleeping bag suitable for camping out in the north of Scotland from April - October.
I tend to get quite cold when I sit/lie still and because of this have given up high seats almost completely, so I'm probably looking for something that is a little overrated.
Now, I'm not going out there if the forecast is bad so the likely temperature range will be probably 5 - 10 degrees but in view of the comment above I've been looking at bags with a -5 rating or thereabouts.
Army surplus is out as they are mostly big and heavy from what I can see and I've got to carry this 15 - 20 miles. My budget is in the £100 - £150 region and the bag has to be synthetic as I have a slight allergy to feathers :-(
To date I've been looking at things like the Snugpak Softie 9 or the Vango Ultralite 900 but thought to ask here to see if there were any other suggestions.
