Sleeping Bags


Vango Venom 200


This two season down bag comes in a waterproof stuff sack with roll top.  I like this bag for backpacking it is warm, light (650g) and water resistant.  It is a mummy style sleeping bag with a hood and neck baffle.  5 degrees C is its optimum use but Vango suggests it can go -9 as an extreme rating.  It has a full zip and an internal pocket.

Mountain Hardwear Cloads Rest


This is a 600 fill down sleeping bag rated at -15 comfort.  It has a good hood with draw string with a neck and shoulder baffle.  The Clouds Rest compacts down and weighs 1.473Kg.  I find this bag has ample room for me as I don’t like to feel restricted.  In cold temperatures I wear adequate clothing, namely base layer and long john type pants.

Snugpak Osprey Softie 12


I have had this bag since my days in Scouts, I did D of E and many camps with it and still use it to this day.  So as a present back in the 80’s it’s holding up really well.  It is a synthetic 4 season bag, the temperature rating suggests -10, extreme rating -15 I tend to use a sleeping bag liner in cooler temps.  It has a compression sack and when fully comprressed is about 25cm x 23cm and this one weighs 1.752 Kg
