/ Sleeping bags for fat blokes
I am about the same size;
In summer I use a tesco double sleeping bag £ 11, loads of room.
I have a Mountain Equipment Classic bag,they used to sell an elephant baffle,which was a down filled insert to be zipped into the bag to increase the size / width by several inches,not sure if they still do them,but you could ask
Mountain Equipment do extra long bags. I thought I'd get a big one for comfort and snuggliness - and it swamps me quite frankly. I'm an under-nourished 6 feet and 11 stone 5.
don't know if they still do (website is crap!) or if I'd call it 'decent' enough. check the fill power & fit, I suppose! Good luck.
> > they used to sell an elephant baffle,which was a down filled insert to be zipped into the bag to increase the size / width by several inches,
Do you think that they sell other types of 'baffles' to increase the size / width of other things by several inches..... lol
Have you had a look at Alpkit's Skyehigh? They do a long version, and the bag design is pretty roomy - I bought one when I was a biffer and it fitted me fine.
+1 for snugpack; very good kit, as long as you like army green...
