a real soldier that puts up with a lot of mis-use

big edd, OutdoorsMagic
17 May 2011
  • Summary: As someone who is 6'6" i was really taken by the dimensions of the "long" version, with ample room in the foot box for size 14's. i have used this bag in a semi flooded tent and mopped rain off the top but i seams to keep its down dry????
  • Pros: the "long" size is impressive with room for size 14 feet sitting cross legged in you bag makes life easier outer shell is v-water resistant stuffs down to a good size and WILL go smaller fleese lines stuff sack makes great pillow.
  • Cons: the lining never feels warm on the skin! no neck collar

Chris Billinge, OutdoorsMagic

NICE AND WARM, GREAT FOR THREE SEASONS

Lola Booth, OutdoorsMagic
27 July 2006
  • Summary: Very pleased with this purchase. Got it on offer for £80 in spring 2006. I use it with a silk liner and it's very comfortable. I am a bit of a cold sleeper and this keeps me warm down to the 0 degrees it's rated for.
  • Pros: Light, cosy, comfy. Lets me stretch my legs a bit.
  • Cons: Fill a bit thin on the bottom. Would benefit from a tightening-up-around-your-neck thingie.

EXCELLENT BAG

Lawrence Morris, OutdoorsMagic
16 July 2004
  • Summary: We are very happy with this purchase--should work well for Spring, Summer, and Autumn mountain camping in the British Isles.
  • Pros: Keeps you very warm while weighing less than 1 kg and packs down very small. While I started to shiver recently up a mountain in an old synthetic bag, my wife was nice and toasty in the Dreamcatcher 300. Also a very comfortable bag.
  • Cons: You could get lighter, but you would need to pay substantially more for the same amount of warmth.

GREAT BAG BUT A BIT PRICEY

Mark Lewis, OutdoorsMagic
14 February 2003
  • Summary: This is an excellent bag with low weight and small pack size, and warmer than the 0 degrees rating that ME give it. It's very comfortable due to the elastic at the knee area. This is definitely a bag to consider if you feel constricted by a normal bag.
  • Pros: Warm for the weight Good pack size Comfortable
  • Cons: Cost

SCOTTISH SUMMER SLEEPING BAG

Mark Fraser, OutdoorsMagic
9 December 2002
  • Summary: Bought this bag a few years ago and never looked back. Like most ME bags it can be used a lot colder than the label says. Ideal bag for Scottish summer where you can get a warm muggy night or a sharp frost.
  • Pros: Very warm for the weight Pack Size The TDS works!!
  • Cons: Stuff sac appears to be an after thought.
