I've spend years camping on the west coast with down now. Summer trips I'm generally fine with a 0* down bag, shoulder seasons I'd take my -7* bag. I've been in the mist zone (no rain forecast, but...

Picked up a Golite Shangri-la 8 last week on a whim, (no inner), and now I have a giant 10'x20' double pyramid for family trips where I have a base camp. Big debate though, do I keep it as is, or...
