Hy,

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.

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.

Deciphering EN13537 Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings

In my opinion, it's not really possible to have an "ultralight" sleeping bag with synthetic insulation. You have to go to down insulation for a 3-season bag weighing 2 lbs. or less.

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.

I need a sleeping bag for autuum and winter in rain forest. I expect temperaturas near 28-32F.

For real cold i have ultralight goose down bag.

But for these trekkings i dont trust down, simple too wet, rain, mist, dew...

So i looking for the lightest syntetic sleeping bag.

Can be a quilt or 3/4 zíper.

I would take a blanket.

Wet synthetic is as bad as wet down. Don't buy into the idea that it is any better....
