Snugpak Softie Chrysalis Kilo Sleeping Bag
The Chrysalis range of bags are well priced, new and exciting. Why this baffle system has not been thought of before is a puzzle.
The Softie Kilo is lightweight summer bag and goes down to a small pack size. Has the unique new baffle system. The long zip on the side has a good fat baffle behind it.
If there is a need for a wider bag undoing the zip will allow the elasticated baffle to expand giving extra comfort and width. Ideal for larger people who sometimes find tapered bags rather narrow, or anyone just to spread out a bit.

Light, 3 Season and Cheaper than many alternatives
Cannot sleep in it when indoors, Stretch material hangs inside bag when you dont use it.
I got this as a christmas present, and have camped in it twice, once indoors and once outdoors.
It is light and compresses down much smaller than some alternatives.
The bag kept me warm outside and very warm indoors, suggesting the summer may be interesting!
The "Stretch" comes in the form of a panel of material, that is attached to the inside of the sleeping bag, To use it you unzip the sleeping bag, and re-zip using the zip on this stretch panel. the only problem comes when you do not use it, and it hangs about inside the sleeping bag (and zips feel cold if you touch them!!)
overall it is well worth the price, and seems to beat some bags costing a bit more (£50-80)
I thoroughly recommend!!
