Weight

1250g

This is a decent budget synthetic bag from Gelert that makes an ideal entry level bag for summer wild camps or DofE. Filled with synthetic Pro Fibre™, it packs down into a pleasingly compact package, something you’d certainly not expect from a bag that’s both synthetic and cheap. Advertised at 1kg, we found it was considerably more at 1.25kg, but that’s still a decent weight in this price bracket. It comes with a decent compression bag that helps keep the bulk down even further.

It is claimed as being suitable for a temperature range of -1.8 to 3°C and an extreme rating of -18ºC. I’m naturally wary of these ranges from any manufacturer and more so from a budget brand. However, the bag kept me more than warm enough on a cool night (about 6°) and would be fine in much cooler conditions, though the extreme rating for any bag should generally be ignored.

If you’ve got a limited budget, then you can’t go far wrong with this bag and would be ideal for a DofE expedition. I’ll be using it for my daughter to do some summer wild camping, so it’s definitely up to the job.

Positives

OK budget bag for the budget conscious.

Negatives

Weight is considerably more than advertised!
