Question about sleeping bags for backpacking

Ok, all you outdoorsy types, I have been looking into some sleeping bags that are good for backpacking. I have seen the down bags that stuff into basically a coffee can, or so it seems. This isn't for extreme use, just for a couple over night hiking trips and what not.

I have seen prices from $100-$500+

Again the most important thing here is that the bags stuff down to small size to fit in the backpack compartment.

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions

then you aren't really backpacking. If you aren't backpacking in an area where a wild animal can rip you to shreds and eat your flesh, you're doing it wrong.

What the hell kind of trip is that? If your greatest danger is twisiting an ankle, you're going to the wrong area. Rethink this or turn in your man card son.

I almost wish we had bears. At least that would keep the meth-heads out of the woods.

We went to Yosemite a couple years ago. I so wanted to see a bear but the wife would not venture off-trail for fear of getting lost. Seeing as I was unarmed and not packing even so much as pepper-spray (as if), I figured she was probably right not too but damn....

As far as a bag, down is great as long as you are 100% sure it won't get wet. If that happens, you're horsed. What kind of temps are you going to be dealing with?

Well I am anticipating nothing colder than 35 or so but I will buy a fleece liner or silk liner in case it does get colder
