i’ve done ALOT of research on this and bought a new bag last week and tested it at the weekend. I’d decided to get a snugpak softie as they have good pack size and price and different models for all temp ranges than i was in my local outdoor shop and saw these mountain equipment starlight ones reduced to £63. The chap in store was very knowledgeable and really rated them. It’s a great bag which i’ll be using for uk bivvying and camping as well as a trip to the arctic in 3 weeks when i’ll use it with a liner.
Will be used for chilly nights out in spring to boiling hot and sticky nights in the summer (yea rite!). Mainly bivying, occasional camping. Preferably lightweight and compact, dont mind it being slightly on the chilly side if its compact as I can always fill the extra space with clothes.
