Good luck
We've been extremely happy with our Feathered Friends bag, but I wouldn't call them inexpensive (even more so with the weakened dollar). For your son I'd definitely recommend the Big Agnes Wolverine youth bags. They don't pack down as nicely, but they are fairly light weight and very comfortable. My kids have used theirs from -20 to +20 with never a complaint. We've taken them on several multi day trips.
