Cumulus Mysterious Traveller 500

The Mysterious Traveller is another 3-sesaon down sleeping bag that sports a clean and simple design. It’s made from Pertex Microlight inside and out to give a good strength-to-weight ratio. The bag is also designed using trapezoid baffles which, although slightly more complex to manufacture, do give better long-term insulation. All this quality construction is provided at a reasonable price and weight. You also get the usual list of features including a neck baffle that seals with Velcro and draws in to reduce draughts, and a baffle along side the zip. To complete a very satisfactory picture, the Mysterious Traveller has been manufactured here in the EU. But although not the hardest bag to pack, the stuffsack is small, and its lightweight fabric may allow the seams to stretch under pressure. A larger stuffsack and a slightly tougher fabric and stitching would have been an improvement. The zip also snags badly when used.
