No it’s not a 99g sleeping bag (yet), it’s a new feature on their website which might be even better than the Design Your Own Mortgage Sleeping Bag feature, it’s “GearAdviser“. I’ve been playing with it for a while and made up shopping lists for climbing Denali, Mt Vinson and walking to the North Pole.
Apart from the fun aspect there’s some really good technical information and advice in there, the Lightweight bit in the FAQs section is spot on and the rest is just as well thought out.
It started a train of thought as well. Winter is here, Ben Lomond today has snow on the top few hundred metres, so camping is now winter camping unless it’s at low level. My last winter bag went down to the Stoneleigh trade recently show to be misunderstood by gormless store buyers, so what now?
Lightweight and warm while sleeping on snow and ice. That’s what’s on my mind.
