This is a Blizzard Bag. It’s waterproof, windproof, reusable and it’s also insulating … in fact independent tests reveal it to have greater insulating properties weight for weight than down!


Turkey optional!

Obviously the bag would be ideal for emergency situations, just the thing to have stashed in your pack for those ‘what if’ moments but I think it may well have a greater role. It weighs 385g and is waterproof (can you see what I’m getting at?) that’s 385g for a combined sleeping bag / bivvy bag. I’m sure you’re thinking, okay but is it really warm enough? The answer at the moment is, I don’t know but I certainly intend to find out … I’ll report back with a full review after it’s had a thorough testing.

  1. I used one for three months back in 2007. It'll be interesting to get your take on it.

    How did this bag go? Condensation a problem?

  3. Apologies for my slackness with this one. Everytime I've taken it out to try it's been pretty cold, so the sleeping bag's won. I did speak to a couple who used them on this years WRT and they reported no problems. Warm and only a small amount of condensation … which given the conditions is a real result.

    I promise to do better and report back soon.
