/ Sleeping bag for Trekking in Nepal
I take it I will be able to buy aforementioned bags in Kathmandu. Will they be cheap out there?
I used a 600g down bag and I ended up sleeping with the bag unzipped everyday. I think a 400g should be fine.
A 3 season bag will be fine, if on the usual trekking circuits.
When you are going, it is usually warmer though.
If your PHD is light enough and has a full length zip then why not use it unzipped if too warm instead of buying a new one?
I have done a few treks with a -25c bag which I kept unzipped for most of time below 4000m.
Bags bought in KTM will be a lot heavier and bulkier since the down will be nothing like as good as the PHD ones.
