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

You have the Terra 65? It's 14" wide. Can't really tell how high the stuff "pocket' extends, but many of them can be expanded via an internal strap system. You stuff the thing in, so it's really all about cu.in. not about dimensions. It looks like that pack is one of TNF's larger multi-day packs. I really can't imagine that you wouldn't be able to stuff a backpacking sleeping bag into the sleeping bag compartment.

Well now that I think about it, I had one open up on Bridger Creek as well when we were out slinging dirt the first time last summer. I know it was a heated chat when I got a hold of the bear spray boys after the 2nd one blew up. I still have the new can they sent me, but I will never use it unless I spray down a meth head or something.

Oh. Still. It's a multi-day backpacking pack. It should fit.

Absolutely. I read some reviews, and people said they stuffed their TNF Cat's Meow into it.

Hey New, have you been slinging any fly line down there?

Shit naw. We opened a business, and we're both working our fulltime gigs as well. Makes it hard to find the time. I may be hitting Okeechobee for some bass on spring break, though.

This did just show up in my facebook feed recently. I wish I could claim it:






You do anything this time of year or just wait until after runoff?

We can get into them on Beaver Lake here and also during the white bass run up into the arms. On Beaver, you need to target them with outriggers and shit (I fish mainly with a fly rod), though they do school and hit the surface in the Fall. I've never hooked one, but I have lots of friends who have.

There are usually 2-3 caught per year in my "circle" of fly fishing friends during the white bass run.

Damn that thing is a Hawg. I will be trying my luck down in FL in the very near future.

This appears to be a catch all thread, but the basic idea is that down is usually better, but it'll usually cost a bit more, and it sucks if it gets wet. If you're planning to use it a lot, it's worth the extra money.

Oh, and the best way to buy one is to go into a store that lets you try one out. I don't think REI has made it to KC yet, but if there's a store kind of like that in the area, go and see them and just ask questions. Or at least read this.
