Montbell bags?? Anybody- I am doing the JMT last week July into August. Looking into the Montbell line .I know the variables weather , pad , tent, weather(can't change that)etc.. lite bags 800 fill for weight, Super spiral hugger #1 or #3 any comments. Any other larger lite bags for recommedtion. I would prefer to spend my money on USA made.

Take a look at Western Mountaineering bags. Their Apache MF bag is a 15º bag that should serve you well. It weighs 1 oz less than the Montbell #1 in a regular size and uses Pertex Microlite which will keep your down dry in all but a complete deluge.

The Montbells are great bags, too. But, if you really want a made in the US bag, I think the Apache will be perfect for you.
