Hello I am 6 ft tall and weight 185 - looking for a good deal on a sleeping bag that will go down to zero degrees that I will use on Mt Kilimanjaro in June - what size should I be looking for? Long? XL? thanks

@ddrakedo Thanks for reaching out and what an awesome adventure!
Six feet is generally where a 'regular' length sleeping bag maxes out so we would recommend going with a 'long'. It gives a little bit of extra room and allows you to stretch out fully if you want to. It is also beneficial, particularly on an expedition in colder temperatures, to have a little extra room in your sleeping bag to put items you would like to keep warm or dry out (socks, extra layers, etc). At 185 you won't need a sleeping bag that is wide unless you have really broad shoulders or like to toss and turn while you're sleeping.
Here are a couple of budget friendly options that may work for you:
