/ Snug as a bug in a rug
I'm looking for suggestions for a new sleeping bag. My current one is just a cheap Outwell one. It's done it's job quite well, in summer it's great and in winter, teamed up with my down jacket it's okay. It's lasted 4 years but the stitching has started to give up now.
Was thinking of getting a similar bag again but thought maybe I should spend a bit more and get something that's more comfortable and warmer. I'm a fan of Alpkit's gear so have been on their website and spotted their SkyeHigh 600 bag. I'm sure it'll be a brilliant sleeping bag and a big improvement but am wondering if it's going to be OTT for what I need, considering I've been happy with a £20 bag for so long and I usually only camp in the Peak (throughout the year).
Can anyone recommend the SkyeHigh 600 or any cheaper alternatives?
I can thoroughly recommend the Skyehigh 600.
I've been using a Rab Ascent 500 for the past 6 months and can't fault it at all. Warm, comfy, packs down small and is light enough not to be noticeable in my pack. Not too pricey either, which is a bonus.
