I've got a fantastic winter sleeping bag (ME TDS 3) which I love but I'm after a summer one now as the the TDS 3 isn't exactly the most packable. For my BDay I've just got an ME Firewalker Ultralight, does anyone know anything about these as the only thing thats concerning me at the moment is the comfort rating is only +5 and these are normally over rated and I'd rather have something that went to 0. Any ideas or other suggestions?

Another thought, would it be worth keeping this bag and just getting a silk liner??

I got a cheapy for 40. It packs down very small-about the size of a '58 water bottle pouch. It is a Wilson Oxygene from http://www.usmcpro.com (ref TC200 under: EQUIPMENT>BIVOUAC>SLEEPING GEAR>Sleeping Bags) and I last used it on Dartmoor under a basha without a bivvi bag back in March. T'was a little nippy towards the end of the night, but a fleece liner would have cured that, or to have been inside my bivvi bag... Well worth 40.

I've found silk liners to be a bit overstated in their effects... can you nest the TDS series?
