If you hate mummy bags for confining nature of them, i just picked up a Sea to Summit Explore II 25* down bag. It is technically a mummy because it has a hood but it doesn't feel like one. Itt is so roomy you don't feel like a sausage in it. Testing out the temp rating for me this weekend while it is still cold enough.

I picked up a Riff and tried it on yesterday. I got the long and its still a little more confining then i'd like. I also don't like the hood. Any good bags for a side sleeper that has to sleep with an arm above him, under head? Quilt?

If you want to spend the $$$ western mountaineering makes some models of their bags that aren’t so tight, I got a badger but the sequoia looks good too.

I love my Nemo Sonic - had the same debate and was going between the WM Sequoia and the Nemo Sonic. Got a good deal on the Sonic and I love the bag. I can't remotely do mummy style.

I like the size/weight of the Big Agnes Mystic and Blackburn bags. I love backpack hunting, hate mummy bags and the long size gives me plenty of room to not feel claustrophobic.

A quilt is going to be the lightest and packable non mummy bag available IMO.
