    I sleep warm and its for back country camping or backpacking

    temps range from probably 85-75 at night I would imagine

    Budget is hopefully under 175-200

    thanks

    when I say "summer" sleeping bag I mean anything that isn't flannel or something that keeps you warm

    If you want the best, you can't beat Western Mountaineering. Just pick the temperature rating you're looking for. Keep in mind those rating err way on the cold side. I have a 30 degree bag that's good for 50 in reality.

    Serious answer is a comfy queen size sheet folded in half and stitched together on the bottom and halfway up to the top. It's lightweight, and plenty warm enough for the temps you listed. Keeps the chill off in the predawn hours, and packs up small.

    Cost $20 or less if you know someone who has a sewing machine and has a spare half hour.

    Pair that with a good REI, Big Agnes or other good camping air mat and you are done.

    The best I ever had was the Snugpak Jungle bag. Snugpak makes quite a few models but for hot hot weather this is the best, and it fits in your palm. I used the Junglepak on military missions in Columbia in the summer sleeping inside a C-130 sitting on the tarmac with no APU running and it was miserable. the bag was awesome. nuff said, Snugpak makes a good product.

    I have an REI travel sack (http://www.rei.com/product/731835/rei-travel-sack-55-sleeping-bag) that I use when I travel to places that have beds but no sheets (happens a lot actually!).... or for summer camping. If it's too warm, I just unzip the feet and usually get some pretty good air movement. It packs up pretty tiny too. Can fit it in my regular size backpack no problem :D
