First test: Kelty TraiLogic Collection - SB20 sleeping bag (2014)

£250.00

The TraiLogic Collection consists of four individual products: a rucksack, tent, sleeping bag and sleeping mat. What sets Kelty’s new range apart from other manufacturers, though, is that while the products can be purchased and used separately, each has been specially designed to work with the others as part of an integrated system. It’s not an entirely original concept. When ...

Mammut Sphere UL Spring (2013)

£310.00

Mammut’s Sphere range has been around for a while and has a proven reputation for featuring superlight, high-quality sleeping bags that are lean on features but offer robust performance. So, you don’t get a neck baffle, the zip is ¾ length and small, and the fit is slim and fitted to minimise on extra fabric and therefore weight. That said, ...

Therm-a-Rest Antares (2013)

£250.00

A design that’s likely to polarise users, the revolutionary system used in the Therm-a-Rest Antares dispenses with insulation on the base of the sleeping bag, and instead features straps into which a sleeping mat (any will do, but preferably a Therm-a-Rest, naturally) slides, providing the insulation underneath. The result is an application of logic (down that is squashed flat underneath ...

Terra Nova Voyager 800 (2013)

£340.00

Striking a middle-of-the-road note on performance and a slightly on-the-heavier-side one on weight, the Terra Nova Voyager 800 comes from a design stable well used to paring high-quality products down to a minimum weight. Its lower comfort rating is freezing point, which means it’s very much a spring/summer bag if used on the tops, but would stretch to 3-season use ...

Mountain Equipment Xero 300 (2013)

£300.00

An impressive product from the ever-impressive Mountain Equipment, the Xero range has been redesigned for 2013 and now comes badged up with branded credentials, including a Down Codex stamp assuring that the 850+ Ukranian goose down within has been ethically sourced (as opposed to live-plucked) and features a breathable He30 shell and DC7 hood. This is all very impressive-sounding, but ...

Rab Infinity 300 (2013)

£350.00

Rab’s heritage with down products can’t be knocked, and the Infinity 300 – while pricy – has this in its favour before it’s even left the starting blocks. On paper it’s joint warmest bag in our test with the Mountain Equipment Xero, pushing its comfort limit to a more useful -2 deg C with an extreme of -18. The shell ...

Marmot Plasma 30 (2013)

£400.00

The Marmot Plasma 30 has a very hefty price tag, but this is nevertheless an outstanding sleeping bag that pulls off something rare: it actually seems better than Marmot says it is. In comparison to the Rab Infinity 300 – with which it shares a similar InsoTect insulation system and Pertex outer – it manages a higher fill power of ...
