Topic - Alpkit sleeping bags?

Morgan Woods - on 31 Aug 2014
I can't be the only one wondering. I had been looking to get one shipped to Oz but it seems they haven't been producing:

I was hoping for something around 100ish quid to use a s a spare for car camping, extra guests etc down to 0 deg, would the Skyehigh600 have fit the bill? Can I look forward to it making a reappearance?

I'd reckon it'd fit the bill - got a short length one for the larger child (off eBay ;-) ), seems perfectly serviceable. Haven't tested it down to freezing, but fine for wild camping in the Lakes in late spring/early autumn.

Didn't they say something about them changing the designs of their bags at some point? they hang around on here a bit so may make an appearance later on to answer your questions.

They always run out of sleeping bags and it's a bit irritating, but I guess that's their model of business with short runs and keen prices.

Hi there,

We are currently redesigning our sleeping bag range so there will be some tweaks to previous incarnations of our sleeping bags. We do not have any definitive details as yet but one of our Product Guys has written a short article with further details regarding the sleeping bag situation- https://www.alpkit.com/develop/getting-sleeping-bags-back-on-track

If you would like to keep updated with product news, it is worth signing up to our newsletter at www.alpkit.com/news/register. Alternatively, you can follow us on Twitter (@alpkit) or 'like' us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/alpkit).

I hope this helps.

Many thanks,

I'm glad I wasn't imagining this.

Any plans for a down synthetic hybrid? I have an old bag that has a synthetic base and down top and it's really excellent even though it's not a great quality down or a highly renowned make. When I got my pipe dream I had to invest in a better sleeping mat because I hadn't accounted for how much insulation is lost when down is squashed up.
