Review: “Bought this for a D of E expedition for one of my twins. Twin 1 had my old expensive sleeping bag and twin 2 had this. Twin 1 was cold overnight and twin 2 wasn’t! That’s a pretty good micro survey in controlled conditions. This one didn’t fold up as small and was heavier but still a great buy for the price. Longer than my other bag too. It was around 9 degrees overnight so is fine for camping in the warmer months.” Ilovereadding
