    Which sleeping bag?

    You need a quilt ! See Snugpak jungle Blanket. A 1 meter zipper attached to form a footbox makes it. Your garments in backpack gives margin for additional temperature insulation.

    Using a larger Backpack, just not filling it up. Thoughts?

    Sleeping bags

    Standard Jungle Blanket. I put a 1 meter zipper to make a footbox and use it as quilt. Zipper allows to open it for usual blanket. Very good!
