Warm cheap compact. You can pick any 2, but not 3. Warm and compact 3 season bag (fits easily in a panier) means down. MEC has a few bags under $250. At that price they won't be covered in Gore Tex but that shouldn't be an issue for 3 season camping with a good tent. With a compression bag they shrink to nothing and will last a lifetime.
A decent synthetic bag will cost about $70 less, weight about the same but will require about double the space.
Down can't get wet... It'll take forever to dry and won't insulate when damp, but it compresses very well and is light weight. Synthetic takes a lot more volume when stowed but will still insulate when damp and dries faster.
Some shops may still have cyber Monday pricing. Check out Atmosphere.ca and www.altitude-sports.com
How much is a good night sleep worth to you? Dont forget a decent inflatable mattress.
