New Sleeping Bag

My new sleeping bag arrived today! I've bought a Mountain Equipment Xero 250 (XL). Fast next-day delivery from online outfit Facewest. I even got a FREE Mountain Equipment lightweight fleece worth £40!

The bag is down filled, has a ¾ length zip, is highly compressible and quite lightweight at 750g including the compression stuff sac. It has a usable range from about 25°C down to about 0°C, so it should cover the Canadian summer months and stretch to a few cool nights in the Rocky Mountains. Hopefully...

Nice bag but a rather nasty colour

ME Sleepzone rating + EN13537 ratings (-11°C, +3°C, +8°C)

Compresses very effectively...

Tale of the tape: 26cm x 15cm

Handy net bag when you don't need to compress it down to transport
