I'm looking for recommendations on a couple of things...

1. Inexpensive but decent quality compact sleeping bag for Argentina during May/June. Not for outdoor use. Give me some brands to check out if you know of any.

2. Travel Insurance. What company do you recommend? The more coverage the better, but affordability and ease of use are both key.

I'm not too caught up anymore in terms of sleeping bags as it's been a long time since I bought mine. I like to get one that is relatively light and compact though...

Regarding travel insurance, you might want to check out the comparison we did in our travel tools area. It covers two of the insurances that are most easy to get online. One also offers online claim handling which can be nice while you are travelling!

If you want a sleeping bag, go to cabelas.com and request a catalog. They have tons. As for personal preference, I don't use bags, just blankets. The problem is that the warm sleeping bags typically have synthetic linings, which get all clammy. I preffer a cotton or flannel lining, which is not as durable and does not pack as small, but much more comfortable.
