  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

How small? Roughly? Or a Photo?

I ask as I've got the Antartica . and thats quite a big bit of kit to pack away. The benefit of two interlocking smaller bags may be what I'm after.

the sp forces 1 bag is 22cms x 16cms 1.20kg & the sp forces 2 bag is 28cm x 24cms 2.14kg

Could you mate? That would be very useful. Anychance you can incorporate some ubiquitous household item in the photo for idea of scale?

What sort of height , weight and chest size are you? PM if required. I find most bags don't give me the shoulder size , so i do like the Snugpacks due to the expanda panel.

Many Thanks.

3.5kg! wow.

My arctic army packs down to 25x30cm with compression sack and weighs in at 2.72kg - ideal for down to -15C :cool:

Okay, i have narrowed my choices down to two bags - both by Nanok.

1. Nanok Comfort -5 it has:

Extra wide
Zip on both sides
Small pack size
Adjustable neck baffle
Filling 100% insulated fibre
Weight: 1.9 kg
Packed size: 16x16x50 cm
£56

2. Nanok Endurance SF -10 it has:

Compression Sack Size, 18cm x 18cm x 53cm
Filling, Synthetic Fibre
Total weight, 2.3kg
Extra wide and long
Zip on both sides
Removable boot bag
£95

Has anyone on here got either of these bags? Could you give me some indication of actual pack sizes?

On paper the Comfort -5 seems to tick all of my boxes, cheaper, lighter, smaller pack size etc - so why do i WANT the SF model:eek:
Help!!!!!!

In the spring i use the British Army Jungle sleeping bag with liner and bivvy bag, never had any problems with being cold,doesn't take up to much room in my rucksack either.
