Mountain Equipment Glacier 1000 (2013)

£380.00

New for 2013, this is Mountain Equipment’s prime bag for the winter hillwalker. In previous years this accolade has gone to the Snowline from the firm’s ‘Extreme’ range, but after years of service it has been rewarded with a waterproof shell and upgraded to a top-end expedition bag. Luckily, much like the Snowline, the new Glacier is an excellent all-rounder ...

Mountain Equipment Xero 550 (2012)

£300.00

The Mountain Equipment Xero 550 is a very popular bag for backpackers thanks to its good weight and packed size, coupled with a good temperature rating. There is an EXL elasticated lining, which provides a closer fit than most bags without restricting movement – and this system makes the bag feel a little warmer than others. The bag does not ...

Mountain Equipment Snowline (2012)

£390.00

Down is a more efficient insulator than synthetic materials, which is why it is used to create the lightest sleeping bags. But down becomes less efficient than synthetic insulation when wet. To overcome this drawback, a water-resistant outer fabric called Drilite Loft is used by Mountain Equipment on the Snowline. This means you don’t have to be so concerned about ...

Mountain Equipment Starlight IV 2011

£110.00

For me, the cut of the Mountain Equipment Starlight IV was excellent, being a good compromise between spacious comfort and snugness for warmth. The Polarloft insulation lofted well, too. This meant it immediately felt warm, which is what you’d expect from so much insulation. The shark’s fin toebox is lifted from Mountain Equipment’s top-of-the-range sleeping bags and provides a contoured ...

Mountain Equipment Starlight III 2009

£80.00

The Mountain Equipment Starlight III is quite a wide 3-season synthetic sleeping bag for unrestricted user comfort. It has ME’s shark’s toe footbox, which is shaped to contour around the feet, maximising warmth and eliminating heat-sapping dead space. The full-length two-way zip has a glow-in-the-dark zip pull, is secured at the top by a Velcro tab and has a minimalist ...

Mountain Equipment Snowline 2009

£325.00

There’s comfort built in to the Mountain Equipment Snowline sleeping bag, thanks to the EXL system, which allows elastic threads to hold the inner of the bag closer to the body for fewer cold spots. At the foot a ‘shark’s toe’ shape means the top is longer than the base, for added comfort. The sculpted hood fits like a jacket ...

Mountain Equipment Women’s Lightline Ultra

£230.00

This is a swish-looking 3-season down sleeping bag. It’s well put together and finished, giving a real feeling of money well spent. Inside the feeling of luxury continues with a really soft lining fabric that’s wonderful to fall asleep in. Down- and synthetic-filled baffles are positioned around the neck and either side of the zip, and these can be Velcroed ...

Mountain Equipment Moonwalker IV

£180.00

This synthetic sleeping bag is made with Polarguard Delta (the most efficient type of synthetic insulation) and constructed with a shingle overlapping method to reduce cold spots. The shell is ripstop nylon and it fends off water extremely well, which is essential in a typical condensation-drenched winter tent. The long side zip has been carefully designed not to snag, and ...

Mountain Equipment Mithril II

£80.00

This 3-season synthetic sleeping bag is made from Polarloft synthetic insulation but it also benefits from a silver barrier liner to reduce loss of radiant heat, and it is claimed that this adds 3 degrees of extra warmth – which is probably one reason why the weight of this bag is so low at just 1540g. It is rated as ...
