I'm looking to buy the smallest 1 person, warm temperature sleeping bag, and I need to know what "stuff size" is to measure the exact volumes of the bags.

Perhaps someone can help me out even more, if they already know the smallest sleeping bag with compression bag combo!!!

Thanks in advance!

"stuff size" is the size the sleeping bag compresses down to. It is usually given in liters or cubic inches.

The smallest sleeping bag I know is the Yeti Passion I, it is good for temps above 12 C during the night and compresses down to 2 liters. Bloody expensive though, plus I personally don't see the use of such a light down sleeping bag. It will be only useful on warm and dry summer nights, on nights when you might as well use a simple lightweight fleece blanket and a silk sleeping bag liner. I therefore refuse to shell out 300 Eggs for this down sleeping bag when I can get the same warmth from something that costs only a tenth, is just slightly more bulky and will keep me warm even when wet.

Which country are you in? I can recommend sleeping bags for all temperatures at different prices. Let me know and I'll message you a list of suppliers in various countries, as well as the sleeping bag to suit your needs.
