/ Wanted: Ultralight sleeping bag
Rated to about +5 to 0ish
Hi, have a Rab Alpine 400
Has had some use but no more than 15-20 nights.
Would take £120 for it posted if you're interested?
Hi Tom, sounds like an interesting bag, but a bit on the heavy side. Could you send me a pic of it compressed?
Ben, I bought a Vango Venom 200 for £72 in No Outdoors using their price match arrangement as I found one for £80 online and have just used it comfortably at 1500m in the Pyrenees in unseasonably low temps! Down and weighs 650g with stuff sack.
Have you got a link for this please?
Are you incapable of searching yourself? It took me all of 5 seconds, courtesy of Google:
Jings! He goes under a 'Geek' name, you would have expected a Google search would not have stumped him;)
PHD sleeping bags
that's on my budget upgrade list. also considering the synthetic Ultralite 350 model for £50 with only 200g extra weight (0.75+0.1kg).
any other budget brands i should be looking at?
what about quilts? (bags without zips)
Ever tried to do Google shopping for the best price on mobile? Guess not - it only shows US results in dollars - certainly on the last 5 phones I've tried.
As I'm not near a PC till later, thought he may have had the £80 link handy. And your five seconds of searching gave the RRP, not anything like a 'best price'.Plus it gave the OP a bump up the thread list...
I'm using a Tesco lightweight sleeping bag as my current lightweight option. ~£10. Shit below 15 degrees unless you wear down in it. But it's cheap. And if it's just one night you can just toughen up and take it.
User error, change the .com to .co.uk and it'll default to gbp as you'd expect.
Thanks for the reply Trangia - after one on here as i can't afford a PHD bag unfortunately at the moment! Not a new one anyway.
And in reply to Darren Jackson, always best to just give a link when helping people - if they don't look for it for themselves, good to assume they can't for some reason - at work for example where shops are blocked due to proxies etc - especially when helping people.
I am really looking at the Venom now, looks good for the price, although I'm always skeptical of cheap gear due to biking! - "buy cheap, buy twice" is resonating inside my head, which is why i was keen for a used bag!
Can i ask how low you took it La Shamster?
He is actually a she FYI ;)
It was not my five seconds search, that was Darren Jackson.
But good point, we perhaps jumped to conclusions that you were being lazy.
Hangar 18 bags. Used mine everywhere for the past few years. Even whilst it was snowing in chamonix. Cheaper today too
Have been away - do you still want that pic?
I reckon it probably dropped to 5 deg. I would always use a 2 season bag in conjunction with a duvet jacket to wrap round my legs as I always feel the cold there ;-)
Hmmm I think I really need something at least waster resistant, as I bivi a lot, and think the venom would fall back there. Any idea on how the Hangar 18 ORR fair in water Sam Sam Sam?
Hangar 18 bags are brilliant all round. Mine has been abused and always comes back to like new again. Never had any water issues with it.
Just bit the bullet on a (too) cheap and cheerful Venom 200 ;) hopefully the bullet won't bite back. Thanks for the help all!
