The US Army modular sleeping bag complex is a very good system for the buck, it is basically a system of 2 sleeping bags zipped together with one being labelled as patrol and one as intermediate, together they make a decent 3 season sleeping bag and with a good bivi cover bumps it upto 4 season!

Meant to be usable in any environment or weather, the US Army modular sleeping bag system has it all. The innermost bag is the black Intermediate bag, and it is buttoned inside the outer green Patrol bag. If waterproofing or additional protection is required, the US issue Gore-Tex bivy cover will snap on top of the whole thing or can be inserted into a 3rd party bivi. The modularity has the added benefit of "capturing" insulating layers of air between the bags.
The Patrol Bag
The green Patrol bag is a good choice for summer use and does not take much space either. The outer material is 70 Denier nylon fabric, and the stuffing is Polargard® HV polyester, which does not absorb too much moisture and dries pretty quickly if it gets wet. It closes with a heavy-duty zipper and has a large hood. The zipper can be opened from both ends, so if required, the feet can have some air too in warm weather. The zipper is accompanied by snap fasteners, to which the other components can be attached.
