    2Kg is anything but light, it is positively heavy. Although compared to a cow it is light.

    down is the way to go if you have the cash...but keep them dry as wet down means a cold night....I use a kilosoft 1kg bag for summer and a Carinthia defence 4 bag 2kg for colder nights....weight doesnt bother me too much ...the Carinthia is very water repellent....and really warm and so can be used with a ground sheet and a tarp.

    This is the bag I was using before my investment with the Rab down bag, Coleman Atom X 1400. Kept me warm in the tent at a stint in the woods in late February. Still have the bag and it will probably be used by my boy when he starts his hammocking ventures.

    Warm, lightweight, cheap. You can have any two.

    Although it states waterproof I would always use a ground sheet and tarp ...but as far as morning dew and damp it's fine.
    They come up on ebay now and then and go for between £80 and £100 pounds .
