Default Advice for cold weather sleeping bag
Looking for a new cold weather (at least 0) sleeping bag. Prefer a rectangle shape over a mummy style. Recommendations to keep me warm? I have a Teton 25 degree currently. I have also considered a liner to help.


Thanks

Sarah

Check out this company:

https://www.wiggys.com/sleeping-bags...sleeping-bags/

I was provided one of their +40 bags on a raft trip several years ago. It was very well made. The boatman told me Wiggys was the only brand that held up year after year.

Pricey, made in USA, great reviews.
Excellent customer service if necessary from anything I’ve read.

Also, my 2 cents, you won’t be happy with a liner on a regular basis.

I’ve always found myself twisted up in the bag within a bag anytime I’ve tried to use a liner.

Default sleeping bags
I would head over to REI and ask them for help and check some out, even if you don't buy there. I do think bags are something where you don't want to try and save a few dollars since they are so vital, but that is just me.

Here is a guide to insulation and a link to a North Face bag. I would just make sure you can return for free if you don't like......good luck!

I bought a Coleman 0 degree bag, square base, will fit a 6'5" person.

Has work well for me. Allows to put clothing at foot area and not be tight.

And they are economically priced.

Agree with Mike. I have a Coleman square base, oversized bag. Plenty of room, no need for a liner (dislike them anyway).
Reasonably priced. Purchased from Amazon. Very happy!
