    Cheap but good quality sleeping bag?

    So I am trying to get a better sleeping bag then the one I currently have. The one I have is just one from target, it's not meant for much more than sleeping in like a cabin or something. The funds are low so does anyone know a good sleeping bag I can get that isn't going to break the bank? Thanks!
