I agree with Hotdog (shudder). Just because there is something 'better' 
doesn't mean you have to run and buy it. If something works and you like 
it, use it. And, over the months and miles of a thru-hike, what works 
and what you like will probably change.  As for what I used sleeping 
bag-wise....I used three different bags...a 15 year old (at the time) 
Coleman synth bag when I started (Aug 4th-Maine). Went to a very-Chevy 
Campmor Brand Down 10 above bag...then, in VA, went to an equally-Chevy 
Campmor Brand Down 10 below bag. I still have all three and love them.
