Small and inexpensive sleeping bag

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a sleeping bag that is inexpensive yet small enough to fit in an osprey kestrel 48. All the bags that are under or around $100 tend to be really big and they don't fit in the compartment of my kestrel pack. I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
