I've had two western mountaineering bags and they are top notch quality and have true temperature ratings. I found both mine used which takes a bit of the sting out of them. I'd highly recommend.

Hammock Gear Economy Burrow quilt or Premium Burrow quilt, Nemo Tensor or Astro pad. I added a Borah Gear bivy to add a few degree of warmth and keep the pad and bag clean, eliminated the need for a ground sheet (Tyvek).

I've got bags from Marmot, Feathered Friends, Kifaru, Exped, Northface and a couple others whose names I don't recall.

The Marmot Helium has been my go to for backpack hunting for years and years but I'm going to give the comparatively roomy Kifaru 20/Tall/Wide Slick bag a shot this season and hope it's temperature rating is true.
