I have a Sea to Summit Spark III 25 degree 850 Treated down bag.

I have one of these I'd let go for pretty…

It probably has maybe 6-7 nights on it. No stains or holes.

I'd let it go for 20 plus shipping if you're interested.

I've got something that you might like. It's a 40L (give or take) pack with an adjustable system that moves the shoulder strap attachment up/down. My two sons used these on their (few) overnight trips. At its smallest, the shoulder straps almost touch the lumbar pad; at its longest it has carried well on a 5-7 tall adult.

I'll upload some pics tonight, but it's a large compartment with sleeping bag compartment in the bottom with large wrap-around zipper for access. A zippered interior divider allows the bag and upper compartments to be combined. Fixed top flap has a large pocket and a flat second one underneath. One ice axe attachment, 2 compression straps on each side, straps for pad on lower back and atop the flap. Inside frame is a pair of 1" flat aluminum stays that can be bent to suit the wearer's back. Not a major brand; it's labelled TexSport which AFAIK was the retailer's in-house brand. Bag is clean and ready to go. Best part only $25 + applicable shipping (I'll need to get an estimate as this is too big for any Flat Rate box option).

Update - photos

Size adjustable pack

Shoulder strap attachment slides up/down. Easy to move, and doesn't slip once it's set.

As luck may have it I've got a Deuter Fox 40 that I just pulled out of the closet to sell. My son used it only a few times and it's practically new.

How does $60 + split shipping sound?

I've also got several Sierra Designs 15F synthetic bags. They're older but are in good shape if you're interested in one of those
