Rab Ascent 900 (2013)

£250.00

Rab is a brand that commands great customer loyalty, and the Ascent 900 is a perfect example of its quality. Using efficient down insulation it offers an excellent lower comfort rating of -19 deg C (outperforming other similarly priced bags), and all at a decent weight of 1700g: very impressive when you consider the price tag. Comfort levels are excellent, ...

Snugpak Softie Technik 5 (2013)

£180.00

How to put this delicately… the Snugpak Softie Technik 5 is enormous. It’s a spacious, heavy bag that will suit the tall, the broad or those unconcerned about pack weight or limited rucksack space. In many ways this is due to its synthetic filling, which despite its bulk will offer improved performance compared with down if dampened by in-tent condensation. ...

Alpkit Pipedream 400 (2012)

£150.00

Alpkit is well-known for producing great kit at great prices, sold via its online store. The Pipedream 400 is an extremely popular down bag, thanks to its price and weight.

Mammut Ajungilak Kompakt 3 Season (2012)

£150.00

The Ajungilak Kompakt is an extremely well-established classic synthetic 3-season sleeping bag. At 1850g it is heavier than equivalent down bags, but as it’s filled with a good-quality synthetic insulation it feels slightly warmer than other bags of similar temperature ratings. The bag’s stuffsack comes with compression straps so it can be cranked down to a respectable size. The bag ...

Jack Wolfskin Mountain Sunrise (2012)

£260.00

While down is more efficient than synthetic insulation, it suffers more if it becomes damp (from condensation in a tent for example). To reduce the chances of moisture affecting the down, the Jack Wolfskin Mountain Sunrise has a waterproof shell at the toe and head, the two areas most likely to get wet when camping. This does increase the weight ...

Robens’ wide range of kit includes this very competitively priced down bag with a temperature rating of -9 deg C. Down insulation is more efficient than synthetic, which is why the Robens Down Lite 700  is lighter than similar-priced synthetic bags. The side zip extends to 30cm from the foot, so you can keep your feet warm while venting your ...

Rab Ascent 900 (2012)

£220.00

Rab has long been one of the most tried and trusted manufacturers of down sleeping bags, and the Ascent 900 is its best value-for-money option. It features a temperature rating of -19 deg C, so it is warmer than all the lower- priced bags here, yet it still only weighs 1700g including the stuffsack. The bag is a little more ...

£200.00

This and the Rab Quantum are the obvious choice of 3-season down sleeping bag for those who want to go fast and light.
