Hey,

I'm torn about which sleeping bag I have to trek in the Alps (high altitude trail2 europa).

These are my reasons:
1) it should be easy (800 grams seems cool, 1 KB)
I don't want a kilt), I prefer km full
3) to understand it should be minus 7, but Omar Rotem made the recommended minus 5/minus 15 extreme.
4) as cheaper of course, I am a student that doesn't work at the moment, if there is such a price up to 600 kg NIS. Am I hallucinating or having an animal?

I saw in that western mountaineering ultralite just like fethered friends and hummingbird but are expensive-about me-$ 350

Anyone have any recommendations?

As equipment km rather buy in stores like a hiker/Ricochet or abroad?
There is a significant price difference?

Thanks so much for your help! :)

Man

A poor experience and compare prices I made recently, dozens of percentage differences and sometimes hundreds of percent among overseas. (Unfortunately)

(E.g. I saw 4 seasons tent from Marmot (can't remember the model. Alpnist?) In the country at $ 4000 and Marmot's website itself in 2000. That's a TNF and weighing 900 grams $ 3000 foreign country $ 1000 in value.)

I suggest you look for in a network of cells and to save a few dollars.

Incidentally, there is no real difference between km to minus 5 to minus 7. These small differences and more important measure your personal sensitivity to cold, major track, the physical and mental condition, the food you eat, etc.

About Kenya abroad I would recommend to check shipping cost, local tax, customs duties and VAT in the country then the difference is not so big anymore.
And of course bought the official importer country not obligated the service even if the model.

Regarding customs – if I'm not mistaken the new rules until 1200 NIS has an exemption, but it might not be valid. I'm going to find out.

So what you're saying I should search in the area 150 $.
I'll check again on spadout and rei.

I saw two models that fit my needs:

Mountain Hardwear UltraLamina + 15 Synthetic
Sold on Amazon in $ 139 realized that price isn't bad.
It should be 9C comfort.

Adrenaline 800 Fill 3-Season Mummy (Regular)

Currently out of stock but have a couple of months on a trip, does anybody have any experience with that bag and can recommend? Someone perhaps interested in also knowing when to come back to stock? Mysteriu 41085.5627083333

A. about the adrenalin-read very positive reviews about him besides the ease of brochsen. It is also important to take into account that the temperature rating is actually equivalent to a lower temp by the European standard (according to golite) namely, the comfort is not going to satisfy you. However the price is very good. Try the live chat option. The representative will give you an immediate response to every question.

At about the line I thought student (Amos) and economically difficult to buy miles so expensive. In my opinion, if the purchase is a long-term, should invest and buy the bag that will best meet your requirements. Not overboard on one hand and to compromise.

C. in connection with customs-duty exemption up to the amount of $ 325 including shipping. Of course you pay sales tax.

D. hunting that km second-hand-backpackinglight website there are many options. I get my secondary (highlite WM) I purchased at 180 $ 300 k instead, completely new. So get rid of taxes was disturbing. In hindsight, I should have purchased so the WM Ultralite.

The last thing about the recommendation that came to the attention of pinole to the rating-temperature 2 degrees comfort! IE 1.43 kg have to add Leiner very heavy to reach.

Just want to reinforce what has been said about buying abroad:
Don't buy in any circumstances *** it just took

I bought a lot of used equipment in sand in excellent condition with no problems. Small sites like BPL, CASCADECLIMBERS OUTDOORSMAGIC people, and you can see if they sold in the past if there were problems.

Thank you everyone for your help, eventually bought TNF cat's meow at $ 650.
