Question: Ii need a three-season sleeping bag. I am two metres tall and weigh in at 115kg and even the long bags are too small. Any ideas?
Answer: Hi there,
The name is Gear, Richard 'Longer Sleeping Bag' Gear and I'm a little
surprised you can't find a bag to suit. I'm assuming that you've tried
the extra long bags made in some styles by both Mountain Equipmentand Rab
- an XL ME Lightline, for example, has an external length of 218cm
compared to 205cm for a standard bag which may be long enough for you.
If that's not long enough, then I'm afraid you may have to resort to a
custom-made bag. My number one choice for a custom bag would be PHDesigns.
Their design your own bag feature allows for a length of up to 213cm,
but you can contact them direct if that's not going to be long enough.
There are other options too, The North Face has extra long versions of
some of its bags, as does Mountain Hardwear but I'd start by tracking
down the ME and Rab options and taking it from there.
