Eurohike Adventurer II 200

£20.00

This synthetic sleeping bag from Eurohike is heavy and not as warm as some. It has lots of creature comforts, though, including a concealed  pillowcase, an insulated hood and shoulder baffle, and a two-way zip. The softness of the lining and shell is excellent too.

Khyam Lightbag 150

£20.00

Despite its name, this synthetic sleeping bag from Khyam is actually quite heavy. However, it packs down small and keeps you warm enough, helped by the drawcord hood and shoulder baffle. The cotton inner, which feels really pleasant against your skin, is excellent, although the outer rustles a lot when you move.

Wild Country Yukon Winter

£70.00

1920g synthetic sleeping bag, compression stuffsack; zip doesn’t snag easily; good zip baffle; large shoulder baffle; reflective piping; very well-designed hood; relatively small packed size. But confusing labels give temp ratings of -6 on the label, -9 on the bag yet the Trail temp rating was only -1.5 deg C, so really just a 2-season bag.

At 1469g (without stuffsack), this 3-season synthetic sleeping bag is a very lightweight option and at £70 it is also well-priced. It is rated as having a -2 deg C comfort limit, but feels a little warmer so it should be fine for 3-season use.

Wynnster Down 450

£80.00

A low-bulk sleeping bag from Wynnster that provides surprising warmth, making it ideal for three-season use. The hood and the chunky shoulder baffle were impressive, with stud and drawcord fastening. The shell fabric feels a little flimsy, but the water-repellent finish does its job well. It’s quite long, which will suit taller campers.

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.

Aztec Summit 1

£90.00

This sleeping bag from Aztec is light and low-bulk, but not as warm as some. Despite this, the hood is very cosy and the shoulder baffle works well to trap warmth. The plastic feel of the shell isn’t great, but the NiteGlow zip pulls are very useful in the dark!
