Hey Tarra,[br][br]My sleeping bag is “Mountain Designs” - it’s good down to -5deg. So if you’re wanting to use it in Scandanavia or anywhere really cold, it’s not so good - but I think it would cover you for the camping trip. I got a synthetic sleeping bag, cos they’re a lot easier to wash and dry, and they pack up really small.[br][br]What date do you leave to go camping?? I’m on the tour that leaves on May 17th ;DSO excited.[br][br][br]Lou[br][br]Mega European [br](March 2009)

I was the same, umming and erring on whether or not to take one - im doing the red star in june. I managed to pick one up from Anaconda (in Innaloo -Perth) which was a $90 on sale for $30 when they had their opening sale. You should be able to pick one up on sale though for about $60. The one I got is for ‘0’ deg, but can go to -5 degrees - but thats not an issue in the summer anyways. [br]Then I figure we can sell it when we get back home if we dont need it anymore - or even sell it to someone through this forum :)[br][br][br]Red Star Special: June 14th, 2009 and Espresso Italia: September 13th, 2009

Yeah if even i came across a bargain like that i’m still not sure whether i’d go the sleeping bag or just a sheet?[br][br]The more space i have in my bag the better and i’d rather not buy something i will only use once!![br][br]Grand European 26th May 2009[br]
