Sleeping Bags

Post by Tomwoodbury » Sat Feb 02, 2019 8:22 pm

Hello there. Wondered if anyone could recommend a very compact sleeping bag for 2/3 season use; I have a mountain hard wear Lamina which I struggle to get in my front harness with a sleeping mat. Under £200
Ideally!

The warmer of those two bags appears to have a very long zip though - so it could be opened up over you in warm weather like a quilt.

I've got the phantom spark if you want any info on it. I got it earlier this month just not been out yet due to work and farm commitments.

Packs down great lofts up nicely and the zip is nice and long too so it can be opened up if it's too warm

Thanks all. I suspect the phantom spark will be too warm based on comments! I’ll be using from March onwards. I guess it’s preferable to be too hot than too cold though!

If your spending in that region have a look at cumulus ,I've a 250 quilt what I used from march to December last year ,if you don't want a quilt have a look at their bags , I was a bit suspicious of quilts before I tried one but honestly it's the best bit of kit I've bought ,cold tie it round your mat too warm leave it loose and flop it off like a duvet at home ,would have bought a 450 for winter if the wife hadn't bought me the MH flame
