Wanted - cheap down sleeping bag

Post by Borderer » Tue Aug 06, 2019 1:37 pm

Hi, I am looking for a cheap down sleeping bag for a friend who is going travelling shortly. He is a fit young lad who will be going backpacking, so weight and bulk isn't too much of an issue, though something not too much more than a kilo would be good. He doesn't plan on going to anywhere too chilly either so it doesn't need to be Everest quality. The main thing is cheap as he doesn't have much money!
Cheers

I'm not selling, but I do have a MountainHardwear Lamina 35 synthetic bag, which Is less than £100 New, weighs just under 1kg, is good to 0*c in my experience and is very well made. Might be worth keeping an eye out for something similar, instead of specifying down ? The newer Lamina bags are even better.
I think when looking at budget bags, synthetic is a much better option than down. Just food for thought.

SportsPursuit still seem to have some 2deg rated Sierra Designs bags for £90?

Thanks, this was for a young friend who is about to go travelling. I have run out of time to find him something really, so I have just lent him one of ours for now. Cheers anyway.
