@TimJ hopefully you'll see our other response! Do you have your Nemo sleeping bag stuffed into a compression sack before putting it in your pack? This should help quite a bit and ensure the sleeping bag doesn't overwhelm the majority of your pack! Let us know if that doesn't solve the problem and we can suggest alternative sleeping bags/packs for the type of backpacking you plan to do!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
