very warm , relatively easy to carry
known affectionately in the forces as a green maggot , this is a cracking bit of army surplus kit which I absolutely love - It is my bag of choice If I am roughing it under the stars without a tent or with only a tarp.
It is rated down to -15C and i can testify to this having woken up on dartmoor and in the llarig dhu covered in snow and frost but still toasty inside
It zips along the top rather than the side which can take a bit of getting used to if you are used to standard bags , but obce you get used to it it makes getting in and out even easier
It is also big which is a real plus if you are my size (6'4 and 13 stone) and it can easily accomodate me fully gloved with my boots on
great stuff, and not that expensive either
