I am not a Mummy's boy

I collected a new sleeping bag at lunch today. The local camping shop had
ordered it in specially for me.

It is a:

Vango Nitestar 300XL Square

Temperature rating (0C): to -10
Comfort Rating: -2 to +20
Total Weight (kg): 3500
Length (cm): 235
Chest Width (cm): 110
Foot Width (cm): 110
Pack Size (cm) L x Diam: 60x35
Colour: Bottle/Black


My current one is by the same people and is quite good but it is one of the
Mummy style ones and I always feel very trapped in it. I like to move my
legs around when try and get to sleep and this is not possible. This one has
a square end so there is room for my feet to move and is 20cm wider than
normal.

It is quite large... even in its stuff sack I think it is larger then my
three man tent.

I recommend hiring a Sherpa or similar to help the carting all your gear around. Or maybe a small truck? I know - can you get a trunk made of sapient pear wood in Salisbury's these days?

*grins* To carry 3.5 kilos of sleeping bag - that might well be a wise investment (and entertaining too...)

As I carry around a baby that weighs a bit more than that I could do with something like it myself. On the other hand, hopefully I am getting fitter.

It is even bigger than I thought. It looks the size of a single bed!
