Tundra sleeping bag has arrived.....!

My new sleeping bag has arrived (postage free) at my daughter's house in Yorkshire.....

That means I've only seen it on Skype. It looks good. Very lofty, and (she says) very soft to touch.

We're heading back home the last week of March so it won't be long till I get my mitts on it..............

It came with two bags, a small one made of nylon and a larger cotton bag. I've asked her to put it in the cotton bag so as not to crush it for the next few weeks.

If the skiing wasn't so good at the moment I'd be keen to get home and play with it. However, the sun is very warm here and the snow perfectly groomed - what more could I ask for?

Hope the bag works for you Laura, it looks good.
"The sun is very warm here" how lucky are you.
It's grey, raining and miserable here.
I can hear you laughing!!!

Not laughing so loud this afternoon! It's grey and miserable here now......but hopefully not for long! At least it'll be some new snow on the mountains!

We have snow again, wasn't expecting that! Bag looks good, you're going to be snug as a bug. See you soon!

Hi Laura. I'm on the verge of ordering a Tundra Pure sleeping bag and was wondering how you were getting on with yours? I'm going to order a shorter one and am still dithering between the -10 and the -20 as it will be for deepest winter camping. Does your bag have a two-way zip? (I'll need that if I get the -20 bag as I don't want to be too warm).

My apologies for not posting a further review for the sleeping bag - I did intend to - mine's a -5and so far it has performed really well. It does have a two way zip and the one I ordered has a waterproof foot and hood. I found mine quite warm on the Challenge in 2011 and had to sleep one night with my feet out of the bottom of the bag!

I went ahead and ordered a -10 which should be warm enough for most of my UK winter camping/bothying. I decided the -20 would be too warm most of the time. I should have the bag by the end of January....getting excited now!

That's good news Judith! Mine did take a little longer than I was originally told. I was really glad I ordered the shorter version. It seems to be the same weight as the standard which means I suppose that an equal amount of down is put into a smaller package? Nothing like buying your own Christmas presents....!!
