    Has anyone tried those pod shaped bags as an under quilt or pea pod? I think Gellert make a version of it, looked at them but not tried it

    Thnx, that looks a really good offer considering usual price but it looks a little bulky for me from videos I've seen. I'm looking for something more compact since I'm trying to get my kit down from a 70ltr to a 46ltr pack.

    Thnx for the heads up though

    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.

    Hey guys, think I found a couple of nice alternatives to the Ultra-Lite and weight less. Gelert Pioneer 700 (15/700g) and the Gelert X-Treme LITE 600 (27/600g), They're not down filling but should make great summer sleeping bags or maybe cooler nights with liners etc

    May still be interested in the Tesco down one though Adam if you can still check for me.

    No worries bud. I think I'll opt for the micro-lite or one of the ones I mentioned above as they look like great summer bags.

    Thnx for checking for us though, much appreciated.

    No worries dude. Sometimes the synthetic bags are better options, as modern materials are getting better, so they give good insulation, and good water repellency, along with a smaller pack size. Not to mention the fact they are a lot easier to clean, and being cheaper, you don't worry too much about embers from the fire burning them

    Just an update. I did end up getting the Tesco Micro-Lite but then ended up shelling out for a Mountain Equipment Xero 350 a couple of weeks back. However a saved search on ebay emailed me about the Tesco Ultra-Lite down bag so now I have that aswell so think I'm kinda addicted now lol.

    Current sleeping list is...
    1. Vango Steller 300SQ
    2. Vango Nitestar 250
    3. Tesco Micro-Lite
    4. Mountain Equipment Xero 350
    5. Tesco Ultra-Lite



    I think I'm going to get sell off the Vango Steller and the Micro-Lite as I cant see myself using them. I like the Nitestar and will be using the Xero throughout the year or maybe the Ultra-Lite in Summer.
