    I picked up a down sleeping bag at a store closing sale a few years ago and it has been great for all these camp stays and the odd sleepover. Small, light, compressible. (I even bought a liner but...

    Cristina, you are absolutely right, this is why my 11yo is using the Smart Alec, because the S19 was just not wide enough to get a 3-ring binder in easily!

    I would love a Luminary 12 in Cloud/Viridian or Grass. With an O-ring in the padded back compartment.

    The Luminary straps are softer (a silkier fabric) and more curved. That works well for me, I have narrower shoulders and tend to have to cinch the sternum strap ways down to pull the straps away...
