Find a Good Sleeping Bag for Under $100

Q. I need a good summer sleeping bag. What should I get with $100?

A. An affordable, good summer-weight sleeping bag? Try the Marmot NanoWave 55. It’s less than $70; weighs 1 pound, 8 ounces; and packs down to about the size of a cantaloupe. It’s rated to 55 degrees, so it should be perfect for summertime sleeping.

Another great choice comes from our pals at ScoutShop.org: the $65 Kelty Tumbler 50/70 dual-temperature bag. One side is insulated; put it on top when the nights get chilly. On hot summer nights, flip it over and put the non-insulated cotton sheet on top for some cool comfort.
