Very thin, so ideal 1-2 season I'd say. You could always buy 2 and layer them...still smaller than most sleeping bags.

Certainly lighter than any other bag I've had.

I'm having a punt on one. I'll review it in September ;)

Nearly took a punt on one the other day. But already have too many bags and not enough time.
Also don't get on very well with the mummy bags much prefer an envelope type.

Its advertised on the website as a season 2 bag. And having seen it in flesh very impressed with the pack size.
Go for it Bren be interested in your thoughts maybe for next year.

I used one on my recent tet trip, packs small obviously, warm enough for summer trips but thats it and every morning it looked like there'd been a duck massacre, it's now in the bin.

I tried an Aldi one on my recent trip to the Dordogne--and again it leaked down. In contrast I have a 4 season down bag from China which is perfect and doesn't leak--it has a much closer fabric weave!. I ended up binning mine in France and buying a synthetic one from Decathlon-a bit more expensive but Decathlon produce some great value kit--bigger, same season rating, packs just as small (nearly!), has zips both sides--AND is machine washable.
