As much as we'd like to think we know everything, we don't, and try as we might, we often end up learning things the hard way. However, if there's one thing to get right the first time, it's your choice in summer sleeping bag—like The North Face Lynx Sleeping Bag: 35 Degree Synthetic. Specifically speaking, the Lynx is constructed specially for weight-sensitive backpacking or bikepacking pursuits, but it doesn't compromise on comfort or performance—so whether you're thru-hiking the AT or bikepacking from New Jersey to Maine, this sleeping bag steps up to the challenge with ease.
First and foremost, the Lynx's Heatseeker synthetic insulation provides a paramount warmth-to-weight ratio without sacrificing performance and is ultimately ideal for unpredictable weather climates when it's warm during the day and cool at night. Per the standard of synthetic insulation, this sleeping bag faces unpredictable elements with a tempered attitude by keeping you warm, regardless of whether or not precipitation is suddenly unleashed from the sky. Additionally, the Lynx is equipped to be extremely packable with its unique cyclone construction which wraps a continuous sheet-like-vortex of Heatseeker Pro around the entirety of the bag, complete with cut-staple insulation and compressible vertical baffles—this in turn eliminates cold spots and prevents sneaky wind from weaseling its way through in the middle of the night. Not to mention, the Lynx is built with a shaped hood which provides cozy warmth while the draft collar prevents heat loss throughout your snooze. A compression sack and storage sack are included.

All around awesome sleeping bag
Figured I'd write a review since no one else has, I've gotten a fair amount of use out of this bag and haven't been disappointed after owning it for a year. I've taken it with me to hotels when we've had to cram a bunch of buddies into one room on a road trip, a 4 night camping/fly fishing trip in Minnesota with ~75 degree nights, and a 10 day trip from Michigan to Utah with a variety of camping including 10 degree nights at 9000 ft in Colorado and an overnight snow shower in Canyonlands. I will admit that was colder than I cared for but I attribute that more to me not being prepared for freezing conditions, but it was ok with a hoodie and thermals. I am a bigger guy at 5'11 and 225lbs but it wasn't uncomfortable at any time. Would definitely recommend!
