    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.
    You can never have too many doss bags . I have both the Tesco ultra-lite and micro-lite, and like you say, there's not much point having both really, as they both pack down to the same size, and they both weigh about the same. Just one is down filled .

    Great price for such a bag, however it doesn't really pack down well.

    I'm not sure about the 400, but I have a couple of the 200 (-12 rating) and they pack down to about 12 inch long by 8 inch diameter.
    Remember not to store the bags in their compression sacks though, as it will wreck the insulation after a while

    Ordered a current issue Army arctic sleeping bag off e-bay for 25 + 5 P&P.. Rated to -30* C. Also bought a one season mummy bag from Aldi a couple of weeks back... Hieght of season, they were 29.99. End of season clearance went down to 9.99.... Had a couple left just to get rid... 4.99... That's my sleeping sorted for the year.

    The current issue bags are nice and warm. The hardest part is finding them in a large, and with the proper compression sack
    Add to that your Aldi bag, and you got yourself a bargain sleep system
