New to forums, sorry if it's in the wrong place! Could anyone please tell me that kind of army sleeping bag I have? It's a dark green, 3/4 zip down the front, has a good with drawstrings, quite heavy guess between 2&4 kg and has a couple of internal pockets. All the label sais is 'sleeping bag'...
Based on materials and construction (not rating), is there any reason that one of these 3 sleeping bags should be warmer than the others?
1. Alpkit 900
2. Rab 900...
I am looking at buying a new sleeping bag for the winter. I'll be sleeping on a thermarest venture mat with a macpac cocoon bivi under a basha. I've read about down being affected by damp yet it is so much lighter and smaller than synthetic. Is the damp really that much of a concern for down bags?
To add to the million and one which sleeping system threads, I'm off to South America in September, and plan to do a fair bit of camping in and around the Atacama desert, and in Uyuni.
During the time I'm there day time temps are likely to be around in the mid 20s, but night time temps will...

I go camping in the woods with mates. It's great. I have one massive problem tho and this is it - I don't know what sleeping bag to get.
Now, I have a Carinthia Defence 4 which is arguably an amazing bag. I brought it because it was water repellent, light...

i've been looking at the snugpak softie range but i'm still unsure.

Just managed to pick up the above mentioned bag from a school fete. Very pleased with it (my first one), it's clean, lofts nicely and was a bargain at just £5.
Having looked it over, it has some press studs down at the foot end - can anyone tell me what they're for?
Ive just received a pair of the stuff sacks from Kifaru one for the bag and a large for compressing clothes. Impressed? Just a little bit!
The design has to be one of the neatest re-imaginings yet; Ive always found the giant grapefruit shape of traditional compression straps to be an...

I'm 6'3" and broad (but not massive). I've got a Softie 9 and I could really do with more wriggle room. Can anyone recommend a good -5/-10 sleeping bag which I can move around in a bit. Pack size and weight more important than cost.
