On the temperature ratings, check to see if the sleeping bag is EN13537 rated. Those ratings definitely aren't 100% accurate, but they are far more accurate than those provided by large manufacturers' marketing departments. If you have to buy a sleeping bag that doesn't have the EN13537 ratings, add another 10*F to the rating, unless it's from the top of the line manufacturers like Western Mountaineering or Feathered Friends.
I'm Rodrigo from Brazil, i need an ultralight syntetic sleeping bag rated to 30-32F.
My initial options are mountain hard wear ultralamina 32 or OMM raid 1.6.
But i Dont trust about the temperature confort about OMM 1.6.
What You think? Others options?
Thanks and Forgive my poor english.
I own the Mountain Hardwear Ultralamina in 15 degrees. I got a friend who has the 32 degree version. It's AWESOME! With one drawback: the zippers. If you get too warm, you can only zip a quarter down, thus, it doesn't vent heat like the full zipper counterparts. If the temperature warmer than a expected you could get a little warm in the bag with no way to maximize venting.
