hi im looking for a sleeping bag for about £60-90 for a bit of wild camping.I will not be trekking far distances.
just going to park the car and go somewhere to pitch the tent so it doesnt have to be ultralight bag just want it to be a warm hopefully 4 seasons bag, probably not at my price limit mind you.
ive had my eye on the Softie Chrysalis Winter or the snugpak sleeper extreme.Can anyone suggest anything better?
Mountain Equipment Starlight 1V ?
I got a Vango Ultralite 300.
I thought it was a reasonable price at £55. Not sure how good it would be if it was proper cold.
rab summit 300 ...
99 pounds in taunton leisure..
up to -4, 750 gr..
half zip sadly...
and nice yellow colour!
there out of stock with that rab one checked on website.
im thinking off getting the alpine one or the vango summit 3000 bag, what yous think? i wont be doing heavy hillwalking, so wont need it to be ultralight.
thanks for the input guys.
Have a look here in the latest deals, and take your pick, both down and synthetic
Pros and Cons -
Down is much much lighter, feels better and will last and last if you look after it - 20 years is possibe... It is useless when soaked with water, is expensive, and is difficult to wash - sleeping mats are a must especially if you go for top quality down rather than a down feather mix.
Synthetic is good if you don't have a sleep mat as it doesn't compress as much as down, will keep you warm even when wet - jump in with your soaking gear and you will often be dry and warm in the morning.... It is cheaper. Synthetic bags don't last like down, probably 4-5 years of regular use and the insulation starts to break down. Heavy!
