About this deal

I have taken this out on several summer trips now and each time have woken up through the night due to being too cold. There was quite a bit condensation on the inner of the fly but we camped beside a river and it was cold and damp so I'll forgive it that.

If you’re looking for the best sleeping bag for roughing it on the living room floor, camping throughout the height of summer or heading to a festival, it’s this one that you should opt for. It is manufactured from the excellent Pertex Microlight fabric and is filled with 700gms of 650 fill power European duck down. Thanks both, spent most of my budget on a Vango Helium tent so hopefully that should offset the weight of the sleeping bag slightly. out of 10 in the quality rank check, so you can be pretty confident that Berghaus Intrepid 700 Sleeping Bag is going to deliver outstanding levels of performance and satisfaction. They make a very small difference – I’d just wear thermals in the sleeping bag which would make a bigger difference.If the temperature is lower than the comfort rating of the sleeping bag, users are likely to be uncomfortable when sleeping. For perspective, the Mountain Equipment Lightline down bag I bought when I was 17 was still going strong 20 years later.

These bags are most commonly used by couples and come with both synthetic and down insulation options. Bivy bag: Borah Gear lightweight bivy - this has an inbuilt midge net and has a pullout to hang from the underside of the tarp. However re-reading and putting a tin cap domed down to stop the hot spot and ising Lard to condition the surface I cooked an egg as if it was a non-stick pan.I’ve not used it outside yet but it seems like great value for money and has some great features like the inside pocket and pillow pocket. When we camped at Everest Base Camp (EBC) prior to The Hillary-Tenzing Everest Marathon we slept on the glacier with just a thin foam mat and I had no issues whatsoever. Supposedly the more modern synthetic fillings are better but I’ve no recent experience with synthetic bags/quilts so can’t say for sure whether that’s true. I find that having a small square of reflective material (old emergency foil blanket) and additional foam mat really boosts warmth. This is of course really helpful, but there’s almost too much information available, so it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for.

These are great for adding another layer for promoted warmth as well as improved hygiene that can help to prolong the life of the bag. Do the synthetic bags have a shelf life as it’s ruined a few nights when it hasn’t been even cold and I wake at 4.

These bags are great for when it’s starting to get a little colder at night or if you’re the type of person to feel the cold in the evening. Mummy shaped bag – Offset baffle construction – Full length left side 2-way zip – Wind draft tube – Pillow pocket – Concealed zip pocket – Inner security pocket- Season rating: 1-2 – Comfort rating: 9å¡C – Extreme rating: -9å¡C – Dimensions: 280x80x50cm – Weight: 0. A cut up wooden broom handel works , you need to set it up so its just a bit longer than the straps 0n your bag when they are either side of the saddle. For example, sleeping in a bag with a comfort rating of 5 degrees in 2-degree temperature may be uncomfortable for females and more comfortable for males, despite using the same equipment.

The down sleeping bags come with their own set of advantages over the synthetics with thinner and lighter constructions offering the same comfort, easier compression and a longer lifespan. Unlike a regular sleeping bag, the mummy bags can’t be folded and packed away and so a stuff sack is used as a substitute. In the past I have put my sleeping bag inside a bivvy bag, because I had it with me, that also helped, but it’s a bulky solution tho.At lower altitudes in The Himalaya it was too warm and I slept with it either open at the zip or as a duvet cover. The air bed or air mattress is a fantastic addition to a sleeping setup when camping for long periods of time. The options really are endless and although a single sleeping bag may be the best option from a budget standpoint, different bags for different conditions is often the best way forward.
