Sleeping Bags for High Sierra Backpakers 

 Remember, each sleeping bag is tuned to each user's preference during each season. Make sure you get the weight of bag that suites the requirements of your sensitivities in the environment.

Remember, it gets much colder than you think it will, then much hotter...
