    Light weight Sleeping Bag - Advice

    Hey - I'm trying to strip the weight out of me pack, I reckon I've got the food, Tent, Cooker and clothes sorted - My next focus is the sleeping Bag.
    Most of our Hunting is central North Island Say September to May / June. I'm Keen to see what Brands others are using and the weights / size comfort rating etc etc.
    As an Old friend of my Dads said to me once - A heavy pack is full of many light things

    Cheers

    When I eventually replace my old Fairydown one I'll probably go for one of these:

    I have just ordered a Katabatic Gear Alsek (Katabatic Gear – Ultralight Sleeping Bags and Accessories) as an all round bag for everything other than winter Tahr trips I'm hoping. 630g with the water resistant down option. Looking forward to carrying it more than my big winter bag...
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Dont know your budget but I have a Domex traveller that is great for summer and fairly light. It was bloody cheap for a 550gm down bag. I have used it on the tops spring/summer and if the weather looks dodgy I throw in a light bivi bag that protects it and ups it's warmth quite a bit.
    I just see those others are quite a bit lighter. I guess that's what you pay for.
