Help chosing sleeping bag!

Postby BillyMako » Tue Oct 09, 2007 12:25 pm

I am looing at buying a sleeping bag for fishing/camping trips. I was looking at the Black wolf 400 or 500 and the Roman Flight Advance 750.

thanks

Hi, We have sleeping bags rated around 0 degrees and find them too hot in summer nights but excellent in the cold or cooler nights.
When camping in the warmer weather we take our older sleeping bags we bought from kmart many years ago as they are lightweight.
Just been to Fraser island and we took the better sleeping bags but found them to hot. Happy camping!!

I've got two Black Wolf Samurai rated to -8 degrees and have been very happy with those. Got them on eBay for about 80 bucks each. They seem to be pretty good quality, I've used them several times already and think they'll last me a fair while.
