Mine isn't cheap, but it is very nice, very light, and you don't roll off your pad ...
Hey guys Im trying to find a good lighter bag for the back country, I know you get what you pay for but im trying to not pay for one lined with gold.
I want a +20 bag or something close, that is low weight, durable, packs easy, and isnt to hard to care for. Just kinda fishing around for ideas!

Marmot hydrogen or helium are both great bags.
What's your price range?
I sell Kelty Cosmic 20* at the shop I work at. It has been probably our most popular bag in that price range. ($110)
Marmot helium. I got the long version brand new for $285 on ebay last year
I have a marmot helium.
I have a Kelty light year.
they are both great.
Be careful of budget bags... Their loft and fill power will likely cause you to suffer from cold spots and cold seams... If you are using a synthetic bag and you keep it rolled up, IT WILL crease and cause cold spots... This is not something you will want to deal with in a cold, wet, multi-day scenario... We use Western Mountaineering bags with 850 fill power down... A little pricey but worth a decade of use without a problem. Good luck in your quest...

there are so many quality sleeping bags on the market now it's hard to suggest any one over another. Down will be the lightest, but if you're going into some wet climate, a slightly heavier synthetic fill will be better.
Check out the websites for REI, CampMor, Mountain Equipment Co-op, and so on. Look at bags by REI, Kelty, Big Agnes, North Face, Marmot, and the list goes on and on. Find a bag that's in your price range, they're not cheap, and has the temp rating you want, about 10* below what you expect to encounter, and the least weight, get it and don't look back.
Yeah, common sense. But that's what it boils down to.
