One Planet Bush-Lite
Reviewers Paid: $610.00
I have used One Planet jackets and packs before and prior to going to the Himalayas again I decided that I needed a new sleeping bag. I noticed that in Australia you never see a secondhand One Planet bag for sale. Now I know why.
I bought the Bushlite large 900 down bag. Superb, brilliant design, fairly light, beautifully made. Best bag I have seen bar none.
I told my wife this will be the last bag I ever need to buy, they are that good. The Benchmark.

After testing out a loan bag (see Dandelion review) from One Planet I was so impressed that I lashed out and bought one. I prefer the tapered rectangular shape and this bag has not disappointed. On my last bushwalking trip I spent some time in a bivy bag. The bivy kept the rain out but some condensation formed inside. In the morning I took the bag out, shook off the water droplets on the Dryloft outer and it was right to go. I've seen a lot of gear over the years, and spent many nights in a range of sleeping bags, but I'm yet to see anything better than One Planet bags. Highly recommended!

This One Planet (formerly known as J&H) bag stands out because of its design.
The zip is backed by a tape, making it less likely to catch. The bag is used at home as much as on the road, as the bag easily unzips as a warm blanket.
The baffles are sewn in a manner which stops the down from moving. Combined with a number of other design features, I have found no cold spots when using the bag in winter.
I went back to the importer when my original J&H bag (same design) leaked feathers at a slightly disconcerting rate. I was impressed when they backed their guarantee and replaced the bag, even though I had used it for twelve years.
