Storm Shield X-1100

rated 3.0 of 5 stars

Storm Shield is no longer in business, and the X-1100 has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best 3-season synthetic sleeping bags for 2023.

Cheap lightweight summer bag. Decent quality for the price. I was toasty camping in Scotland in a wet August.


  • Lightweight
  • Small pack size
  • Compression sack included
  • Comfortable


  • Need to be aware of limitations with temp range

Anyone who sleeps under a basha in sub-zero temperatures is going to be cold in a 1kg bag, whether it's down or synthetic. Need to be aware that the low end of the range stated is the temperature at which hypothermia can be avoided.  

I like the idea of having a lightweight summer bag than I can add a season to by using an even lighter weight fibre-pile liner, or a couple of seasons with a lightweight down bag outer. Nothing worse than sweating your nuts off in a 3 season bag when it's 15°C outside.

Really good sleeping bag. Ideal for spring - autumn use. All those reviewers complaining about being cold should probably not be using a 3-season bag for sub zero temperatures.

I've had mine for years, used it from spring on Salisbury plain to summer in Iraq, never had a problem with being too hot or cold. The manufacturer rates this as 0 to 32 degrees C, but if you want to be out in anything below around 5 degrees this is not the bag for you. For everyone else it's great.

Temperature Rating: 3 seasons - 0 - 32 degrees C

Spent 3 nights in Britain, only +3 degrees, I was frozen. Very lightweight but only good for summer in south Europe or Spain??

Price Paid: £44

I work for the company which sells it, so I got a hefty discount, but I'd still consider it if you didn't have space or weight to lose. We've put the comfort rating at a low of +7, with extreme as -7, so no wonder another reviewer was cold. The extreme temp rating only means you won't die from hypothermia--wear clothes to avoid frostbite.

The Storm Shield X-1100 is a brilliant sleeping bag. really light and toasty warm.

Design: mummy
Temperature Rating: -5 C

A manufacturer that obviously takes advantage of the lack of universal standard ratings in order to con people into buying their bags.

Highly unrecommended! I spent three nights out in it, admittedly only under an army style basher, in temperatures of about -1 or -2. It was FREEZING!!! And I had full kit on underneath. I was glad when I had to get up and do stag!
