- PSA aldi down sleeping bag £40
Might be ok for a bit of summer bikepacking. Aldi are selling a 900gram 2 season down bag.
I got one out for a look in the local store, its similar looking to the old Tesco down bag. Packs down pretty small in the stuff sack, might be worth a punt at 40 quid.
Free postage when ordered online i think

I’m no camping expert but £40 on an aldi bag seems a bit steep.
Maybe this is better value
This one has the oddest review I’ve seenPosted 1 year ago
I had a quick look at one today on my way home. They pack up small in a reasonable stuffsack and are a nice shade of green. Remind me of a cheap snugpac style bag. They look to me like they are worth 40 and no more. Personally, i’d rather spend a bit more and get quality down and quality stitching. How many summer down bags do you buy in a decade? It was a pass for me.Posted 1 year agocookeaaSubscriber
<span style=”color: #444444; font-size: 16px;”>But is the down ethically sourced?</span>
The description says:
<span style=”font-size: 0.8rem; color: #333333;”>Filling Material: </span><span class=”tier-two__attributes” style=”font-size: 0.8rem; color: #333333; box-sizing: border-box; font-weight: bold;”>85% Duck down, 15% Feather (not live plucked or from force fed birds)</span>
How ethical do you want your Aldi bargains to be?Posted 1 year agobikemadMember
Buy a proper make bag for a little more & it’ll probably last a few years too,blacks where selling the eurohike down for £50 a while ago I looked at them last year but opted for an oex Helios from go-outdoors.
Remember to store bags lofted too my oex comes with a storage bag,someone mentioned on another forum that the aldi ones didn’t seem to puff up barely at all ! & the filling felt a bit rough,meaning bigger feathers = not so warm compared to proper makes.Posted 1 year ago
