    Down/compact sleeping bag for £50 or less.

    Can anybody recommend a down sleeping bag for £50 or less? It doesn't matter about the season rating as I will get a liner or wear clothing. Its mainly going to be used in summer anyway and I mainly want it for compactness. Or do you know of any synthetics that compact well?

    Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

    I've got a couple of these:

    http://www.tesco.com/direct/tesco-ul...g/200-7415.prd

    They don't appear to be available at the moment but, when they are, snap them up. They pack down to the size of a small rugby ball and are great for two season use.

    I agree with Martin. I have one of these too. If you add a fleece liner and a bivvy bag, the make a decent 3 season bag too.
    With any down bag, make sure you store it unpacked, and use a liner of some kind to prolong it's life. It's a lot easier to wash a liner than it is to have the whole bag cleaned professionally.

    Thnx for recommendations, The Ultra-Lite version looks great especially if its a down bag. I did look at the Micro-Lite version before and meant to go back and buy it but totally forgot. Wasn't aware of the Ultra-Lite version.

    Its a real shame they are out of stock as they likely wont get them back in for a while now maybe next year

    Fancy selling your spare Martin?

    Tempting but they are worth more to me than I would have the front to ask for, if you see what I mean. Add postage on top and you would be better off buying something like this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00499DS3...SIN=B00499DS3O

    Slightly above your budget but seems to tick the other boxes.

    I forgot to mention, I've also got one of these and I absolutely love it!!

    No problem mate. I'll check out my local Tesco, as I'm sure they had some yesterday when I went in. Will get in touch if I manage to secure you one.

    Thnx anyway bud.

    They are a little out of my price range at the moment as far as sleeping bag goes. I thinking about flogging my Trangia 27-6 so will put that to funds once sold and see what I can come up with.

    Thnx m8, your a star

    If they have them in stock can you ask them to put it aside rather then purchase first, just incase I source an alternative in meantime.

    Much appreciated
    Adam.
