Hi, I'm going to South America and I need help choosing a sleeping bag.
To what temperature comfort should aspire? (I'm going for).
Secondly, should I buy a bag with a temperature higher than + comfort liner so the bag will serve me well in warmer locations?
I want a sleeping bag weight and willing to invest in a good bag (up to 1.2 pounds). Happy to farm types meant!!!
One last question-I lands in Buenos Aires--is cheaper to buy a sleeping bag?

Thank you!

I was going for a mile before each Trek.
So you will not need to bring with you when you weren't also slammed kg can hire miles fit exactly what it's going to be the particular Trek.

The idea of renting that miles never sounded good (you know who's sleeping with him first, and without regard to quality.)

If you plan to sleep a lot, according to your countries you planning going to travel over six months, time certainly justify investment in a bag.

However, in Argentina and Chile to sleep temperature more than likely meet in Peru and Bolivia but humid weather (or in other words it's raining)-i.e. the conditions meet the first part of the trip were not identical to those you see in part II.

I think you should try to adjust the bag to tougher conditions-i.e. I expected k. Green (because of the rain, although if you watch him make catches.) temperatures of 5 to 7 (European standard) depends of course on the cold tolerance.

You probably pay some weight the bag.

-Greece.

What is the budget?

You can buy abroad?

What do you prefer? Synthetic or upside down?

Don't wait to Argentina, there's more country selection and prices are not something

Budget-I'm buying a sleeping bag, I prefer it to be easy, so willing to invest up to $ 1500.

Synthetic or upside down?
-Natural advantage it can get wet, but a little heavier?
So a problem if it gets wet, and dry carefully.
If I'm not confused so rather synthetic.

On Monday I go and if it is not advisable to buy I go on Saturday/Sunday to buy a bag.

Thanks again!

Durable, synthetic-faster, isolated even when wet, heavy relative to.
So expensive, it is much easier, not isolated when wet, takes a long time to dry, maintenance of draping.

About sleeping bag rental-from what I know about South America no matter how slammed there still relative to time and transitions from one place to another, at the lodges and visits to villages and towns, occupying less time trekking.
I was buying fleece inner. So I'd have something to sleep in lodges and rents out a sleeping bag before the Trek.
Again this is my opinion of course.
