Comfy and warm
Wednesday, 25 February 2015  | 

Bought this to bivvy in mildly winter conditions while bike packing. Used in anger in the snow with a tarp and bivvy bag it kept me lovely and warm once I'd warmed up (star jumps before getting in help). Great purchase and a great all-rounder. Stop looking around trying to choose and just buy it.

Sleep easy
Monday, 19 May 2014  | 

A sleeping bag is a sleeping bag, there's not much to say but here goes. Service was excellent, ordered luch time one day, delivered 11am the next day. I used the bag for two nights on Dartmoor a few days ago, it was fine, plenty warm enough - though lowest ambient was only 6*C. Definitely roomier than most mummy bags around the shoulders, hips and feet, nevertheless it's a brilliant compromise between pack size, weight and performance. The zip feels good, the cover materials seems to be high quality and the hood seals around you very nicely. The price here is 40 less than at one of the well known outdoor shops, so for me it's a bargain!

A great sleeping bag!

A very warm, extremely light sleeping bag which packs down very nicely to take up minimal space. I've slept in it a few times already (with the Rab Storm bivvy bag) in mildish weather and I'm looking forward to doing some proper bivvying soon.
