Title: Wiggy super lite
Post by: ethan_quick on June 14, 2020, 03:19:10 PM
Anybody have any experience with them. Pros? Cons? It will be used for a base camp bag the last 2 weeks of September. I currently have a kelty 20 degree bag and slept cold in it last fall. Granted last fall I had a cheapo vinyl tent and this year I bought a kodiak canvas.

What's your budget? I don't know anything about those but there isn't a ton of information on the site. Personally I like down, treated down works well even when wet, but it does not insulate quite as well as synthetic in very wet climates so keep that in mind.

I have an older Marmot 30* that i've been using for years now and I bring that down into the 20's. I am having Ben at Goosefeetgear build me a custom quilt that will be a bit warmer while also saving weight. That's a pricey option, but I intend on using this for the next 10 years.

A few of the "Custom" brands that make awesome gear but are pricey are:
Enlightened Equipment
Nunatek
Katabatic

Check out what backpacking Thru-hikers are using. They're having to use a bag for 100's of nights and often times are running into a ton of different climates, while also having to keep it packable/light. I'd check what PCT or CDT hikers are using and look for something similar.
