    Sleeping bag advice

    Flying into the st Arnaud area over Easter and I'm after a new sleeping bag . Been toying between these two and wondered if anyone had first hand experience or can offer another option.
    Looking for around the 1kg mark and 500ish $
    with a minus 5-10 rating
    I'm 6ft1 and 100kg

    I have got the Talus 2, was cold every trip prior to purchase, never been cold since. Awesome bag.
    Im 85kg and 5.11 and the standard size works, Was in the same area your planning to go, with Tasman Helicopters in October and I was never cold.

    Been a lot of sweating done down here this winter.
