I have been using this bag for years. I recently slept out on the North Downs (Surrey) on 6 December. I had a Rab bivvi and no tent, also used a cotton liner. Bit cold (frost on my beard in the morning) but given that this is a summer bag I think it performed well.

Weight is a big issue for me and this bag really scores there. I would rather have a thin light bag and use a bivvi or base layer than get a real heavy winter bag.

Have just bought a Snugpak 9 for another rough camp in January. Feel I should have gone for the Mountain Hardwear Lamina 35 as it seems to pack down real tight.

Do not buy this bag: absolutely rubbish.

Used the bag over summer temperature at about +10C, in a tent on a windless nights and had to sleep in all of our clothes (about 6 thin layers and a fleece) and my wife was still freezing.

Got home washed the bag, and the seams had gone. Never buying storm shield again.

I just about froze in 15 degree C temps...inside a cabin! Not the best sleeping bag unless you live on the equator! The best thing about this bag is its size...easy to take when backpacking...but a sheet would be just as good (or a tissue as this sleeping bag has been referred to).

I slept in this sleeping bag on a reasonably "chilly" night and I was boiling. I don't know if that was because of the bag or just because I'm hard!

Very good if you're short on space in your rucksack, but don't try to sleep in it unless you are wearing your clothes or have a sleeping bag liner.
