    ID of an army sleeping bag

    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'...

    Are all 900 down bags the same?

    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 https://alpkit.com/collections/sleeping-bags/products/skyehigh-900 2. Rab 900...

    At £50 are silk liners worth the extra expense over poly cotton at £10?

    Down or Synthetic

    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?

    First Look - Mountain Equipment Xero MM Sleeping Bag

    For a while now I've been on the look out for a new lightweight sleeping bag for summer use. I really liked the look of the Rab top bag but these seem to be quite hard to come by and still command a premium second hand, the other bag I had my eye on was the PHD Minimus which I'd pretty much...

    SLEEPING BAG OMG WHICH ONE?!?! AM I STUPID?!? (I can also write in lower case).

    Right some frustration. I have. 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...

    Hi guys, 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? Many thanks Marc

    The Stuff Sack Re Imagined by Kifaru

    I’ve 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; I’ve always found the ‘giant grapefruit’ shape of traditional compression straps to be an...

    sleeping bag with wiggle room

    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. Cheers
