Looking at purchasing one of the following:
Marmot Helium 15 degree
Marmot sawtooth 15 degree
BA Gildon 10 degree

All are priced below 225 bucks, really just looking for opinions on these three bags. I want something that's around 2.5 pounds and comfortable as I switch from my side and back.

If you can get a marmot helium for $225 I'd go with that bag. Its got enough room to move in if your a side sleeper and its 2lbs

You should check out a quilt. I am pretty much sold on the system.

As for the listed bags. My buddy has a Helium and really likes it. Don't know about Sawtooth personally but it's been around for a long time and you can get that bag new for less than your budget. The BA Gilpin was Discoed in 2008(had to go look it up...never heard of it). I would be leery that someone actually cared for and stored a 600 fill bag properly for 5+ years.
