Hey Amnon,

Can't recommend specific models, because I just don't know.
However, the number-indicates the degree of density (or alternatively the amount Guth-LOFT). The number is the ratio between the volume of (CU IN) weight (LBS): much better quality high backwards (850 is about as high as I succeed to reach). Look here.

WM are really very high in bringing companies and are very good.
Here you can read reviews of use of different models.

A lot depends on your use (rotation at Camp night sleeping bag with him what temperature etc.).

You should look at weight filler in an indication of the degree of insulation.

One of my bag is produced in Western Mountaineering, and is really great.

But personally I prefer tours-usually have synthetic insulation item. Why That reversed a losing almost all his isolation when it gets wet, and synthetic. Then I have a km, until today I had no faults, but forbid the bag dry when in the field, I want to have something to keep me from freezing until I come out.

I have the Mont-Bell Alpine Light
374.
I used it on the CDT in the first part.
(I sent it to friends, after hosting Colorado.)
I don't have a bad word to say about him, featherweight, shrinks to a small oval ball and unobtrusively, lofting and splendid isolation. Alpine Light

In General, my favorite company today, I really like their products.

For a moment I thought you were talking about a sleeping bag weighing 374 and wondered

Used mainly in camp at night? You need it to sleep? Or hiking during the day?

The main use, and only one was.
But soon I realized it for me so I sent him.

During the day, while walking, the body produces too much heat for wearing such a jacket.
(In my case anyway)

Is there any way to be a long rain coat (and inside cover)?

For example, can wear a soft? It's not crushing.

Thanks to all respondents. At first I thought to buy the Flight Jacket of WM, but after I saw the suggestions here, I think the best mix in terms of weight/price ratio is the Mont-Bell.

Regarding Ma's comment, I don't think a coat type and weight is to extreme weather conditions.
