Buffalo bag - not sure which model, it has zips to put ones arms through. Given to me to test by Buffalo about 30 years ago. Snugpak Softie 9, Rab 700 for when it's perishing and a cheapo from Decathlon for warm summer use

I have the DD Jura 2 sleeping bag currently, it's my only bag and was out in -2 a few weeks ago without feeling any chill. It's great for pack size and weight & I love its centre zip.

I have the Carinthia defence 4 which I love and the snugpak jungle bag for summer use. I am looking to get a new style brit army modular med weight bag for taking out with me when my dog is old enough to camp out with me.

Hi There. The British Issue Medium bag is just a Corinthia Defense 4 made under license by the MOD's contractor. It's exactly the same bag. The Issue lightweight bag is the Corinthia Tropen, again made under license.
I have the Medium Bag (in both medium and large) and also a Snugpak Jungle for the summer. I'd recommend the poly cotton liner to go with the Medium bag. It's a Faff (to use in a hammock), but at least it keeps the bag clean on the inside (so you don't have to wash it as often), and adds to the insulation somewhat.

I've got an Exped dreamwalker synthetic for my summer bag. A Danish army M90 for my 3 season and I combine the two for my winter kit. The dreamwalker can be opened at the foot end and has arm holes so is great for getting a morning brew on.

Blacks of Greenock Highland bag(2) (circa 1979 and still mint...ish!)- their first synthetic 4 season bag, I believe?
Czech Army surplus blanket style bag (2)
British Army cold weather soldier 95 bag (1)
and 2 goretex bivvies.........


......oh and a "Czech Army Officers?" bedroll/sleeping bag/swag...... weighs a bloody ton(ne), probably radiation proof!?

I only own one sleeping bag, and it's a low-end one at that.

It's one of those Kilosoft ones. I think it cost me about £30.

When the weather is warm I use just that, if the weather is cold or wet I put it in a goretex bivvy bag. It's lasted me the best part of ten years, with no problems, and is still going strong.

I love Hyke & Byke sleeping bag.
The fabric is waterproof and has great insulation capabilities that are as a result of microscopic air clusters that are found it down feathers. These microscopic air clusters “loft” trap heat, therefore, rendering the sleeping bag cozy. This sleeping bag will make you feel like you are sleeping in your normal bed at home even though in reality, you will be very far away from home.

This sleeping bag will keep you warm at a temperature range of 20 to 40 degrees. It also weighs around 3 pounds making it portable and suitable for hiking. You surely don’t want to be carrying a heavy sleeping whose weight will exhaust you as you hike in the wilderness.

Hmmmm

Cheap lightweight Tesco mummy bag [used to upgrade other bags]
2x really old rectangular bags [used when I used to go away sailing]
2x cheap mummy bags which came as part of a camping set [when I went camping with the girlfriend - now wife]
1 heavy warm synthetic Vango [used when I was younger]
Snugpak osprey [used when I was slightly less younger]
Jerven exclusive with both weight liners [current user for hammocking - and bought 2nd hand on here, heavy weight liner bought new]
Down army arctic [given to kids to kick around when it's really cold]
Down Marmot bag [given to kids when it's really cold]

I also have a 3/4 down underquilt
a full length synthetic underquilt [bought 2nd hand from here]
home made full length down underquilt - made from a domestic duvet, so the down is crap, it's massive, bulky, heavy but warm.

I can just about fit the lot [not including the Jerven and underquilts] into a surplus German army side entrance sea sack. Really handy to bung in the back of the car for cub camps as there are always a few who are cold the first night and appreciate an extra layer for the second night - I let them have one cold night as a learning experience so if the go again they'll think about what is needed to be warm.

A few here too.
My current user, which i really do love is a Fjallraven Polar (-20), very warm and spacious. (i like to move in the bag). Also, a North face cats meow (-15), an Anjungilak Kompac extreme (-15), a snug pac summer bag (+10) and a Mountain Equipment down (another old one who's name i can't remember).
Can never have too many bags and its nice to be warm and cosy. I've lost count of the number of bags i've owned and passed on in my quest for comfort, various military bags, a ray meats golden eagle and a couple of snug pacs.
