    I agree decker9, my WM Badger is phenomenal and those no snag zippers are awesome.

    I’m using a mountain hardware down filled bag rated for -9c. I picked it up in the back of our local atmosphere store super cheap. I think it was 50% off. They always had a shelf with discontinued stuff that wasn’t advertised in their flyer.
    Socialism eventually runs out of other people’s money.

    If you're settled on WM then there aren't any wrong answers. Though I'd suggest staying away from the Gore Windstopper range, it can work, but limits the versatility of the bag, IMO.

    If you want as light as possible, look at the Extreme Lite Series, otherwise MicroFiber series. Then choose temp rating and if you want a mummy or more room.

    I think the Alpinlite is awesome. A touch warm for me, so I've moved 100% to a down quilt that can be zipped into a bag, best of both worlds.

    I used my WM Badger for an August trip and it was excellent.

    I've had excellent luck staying warm with a KUIU Super Down -9C/15F bag even into early Oct. Holding up well thru 7 seasons and a fair bit of use so far, around 200 nights. It is fairly snug....if you are claustrophobic get something else.
