Alot isn't a word.
Stop using it.
This bag is terrific. I've used it in hot weather (I.e. 30+*C degrees) and also in cold weather (below 0*C) and had no problems with either…

I have now used my WM Highlite in the Grand Canyon in November and North Florida in January. It is incredibly light and stuffs down to the size of large can of soup. It kept…

Wow...great craftsmanship, cool purple color not load at all. Best of all is the weight, I just shaved off almost 2 3/4 pounds with this baby. Got the 6 footer I am 5'10" it's…

Having made the long sad journey through just about every other decent 30-degree down bag out there, including a Summerlite (too small), this is it. The one. The bag. For the…

I've owned other bags, borrowed bags, and shacked up with a couple boyfriends in their bag. This one is by far the best. I am 5'1" and 112 pounds... not the typical buyer of…

I have put this sleeping bag through hell and 2 rainbow gatherings, it still holds up. I spent an entire winter at 4500ft in the Siskiyous in this sleeping bag, many nights a…

Amazing bag. I've now spent a year camping and hiking with it and have found no flaws. This bag has been through alpine weather and desert nights, all very comfortably. Except…

If you haven't already looked at them, Big Agnes is pretty cool. They figured out that the insulation on the bottom of a conventional bag doesn't actually do you much good be…

Bought this bag because it was synthetic at only 2 pounds and was rated to 30 degrees. I expected to be cold during a 5 day backpacking trip in a thunderstorm near Yosemite, b…

I am 6'0" 170lbs and this first perfectly. I was a little skeptical at first that I would stay warm, since it is so light, but I have spent nights in the Canadian Rockies wher…

At 6'3" 325 lbs I needed a larger than usual bag! My first night temp was only down to 34 degrees and I was comfortable. I am an older man and anything other than my king size…

I sleep best on my stomach with arms wide, legs out. Altogether the exact opposite of what a mummy bag forces you to do. This bag has tons of width, about 20 inches more in…

This combined with the Therm-a-Rest ProLite pad has made for a very nice sleep system for me in the midwest. For someone that tosses and turns in their sleep, I find a blanket…

I bought this blanket for 3 season hammock camping. With a NeoAir under me, I woke up with a sweaty back in temps as low as 40. very happy with this blanket. Would have no…

I use this bag for my backcountry hunting trips, usually in September. When packing your camp in, you want light, reliable and functional. This bag is all of those things. I p…

I used this on a trip to the Adirondack High Peaks area. It dropped into the 40s, but kept me nice and warm. I am a warm bodied though. It is LIGHT and packs really small. Who…

About Summer Sleeping Bags Rated From 30-55 Degrees:
I have been catching looks at the office because I am just too comfortable in my 30-55 degree sleeping bag, its ideal for work because they keep it fairly warm in here and I don’t want a sleeping bag that is too hot; I generate a lot of heat crawling around pretending that I am a caterpillar.
Summer and warm weather camping is made easier and more enjoyable with sleeping bags that give you the right amount of thermal protection. You can choose down insulation, which is lighter, compressible and often obtained from geese or synthetic insulation, which is capable of delivering comfortable warmth even when wet. Both styles of insulation have their merits and it may be up to you to decide which is best suited to your upcoming adventures.
As a bonus, the lighter sleeping bags are better suited to constructing the walls of a pillow fort, since their reduced weight reduces the need for load-bearing chairs.
