OMM Mountain Raid (2013)

£160.00

Preposterously small (about the size of a Nalgene bottle) when packed due to its intended use in mountain marathons, on first look the OMM Mountain Raid raises quiet alarms as well as eyebrows. More worrying is that the bag isn’t temperature-rated. Its makers claim it is ‘designed for use in the last weekend in October in the UK by experienced ...

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 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 ...
