/ which sleeping bag for a big bloke?
I have a Kathmandu XXL bag that is about 6'6" tall and mighty wide. it's quite old & I'm not sure they're top-notch, but might be worth a butchers. HTH.
cheers... the PHD ones might be a bit pricey for me!
supertopo has a sleeping bag comparison, I recall one make could fit two girls inside, had some sort of stretchy fabric.
oo-err, I can see this thread taking an oblique tangent.....
I never had much success with bags zipped together for communal warmth. Tends to end up with a battle of invading cold feet fighting for the warmer bag.
Have you had a look at North Ridge(?) or whatever Go Outdoors own brand is? I was slightly shocked to discover that I can get into their sleeping bags and I'm not exactly small (I think their 4 season synthetic must be about 7 foot long!). Obviously not Rab quality but better than a poke in the eye.
Western Mountaineering. Great bags, they do a UL one that I get into no problem 44 chest 5' 11".
I have a Marmot Wave 1 bag that I use as an over bag. It's way to big for me except on the warmest nights. Might be worth a look at them.
