Cosy and warm even with ice on the tent, 26 November 2014
By OnARainyDay (Hertfordshire)
I used this sleeping bag on a recent trip to New Zealand, and I was very impressed with it. In the past I have always been cold in my sleeping bag, but this kept me warm even when the temperature dropped below 0 (we woke up to find ice on the outside of the tent). It is slightly bulky and quite heavy, but I did quite a lot of research into different sleeping bags before I bought this one, and I think it is very good value for the performance it gives. I carried it in my rucksack over a couple of days, and didn't have any problems with it. If weight and size are very important to you, you'll probably need to spend more money and buy a down-filled bag.

Kept me warm at 5 degrees however I found the multi cord closure and the zip very footery and annoying. They are all to the left of the bag and I am right handed and as a result, during the night, I found altering these difficult. There's not much room in this bag and I'm fairly small.
Very comfy but it's bigger than claimed., 15 January 2014
This sleeping bag is very comfortable. The inner fabric is lovely and it really immerses you in quilt and cushion.
The pack size quoted on the website of 23x17cm is outright misinformation. I bought it in store so I knew it was much larger than it claimed to be: it's about 30-32cm by 20-23cm. The only similar rated synthetic option which was smaller was the mammut alpine UL, which really is tiny and light, but costs £180. I thought, on the whole, this bag is better value.
Vango Ultralite 900 sleeping bag, 20 November 2013
By Susan G (Hockley, Essex)
My son needed a 3 season sleeping bag for an expedition weekend with the Scouts. Bearing in mind he was going to be camping under canvas in November, we wanted to make sure he was going to be warm, but it also needed to be small enough to fit into the bottom compartment of the Lowe Alpine TFX Kibo 65 backpack.
We were recommended to get an Ultralite mummy-shaped sleeping bag which would be warmer. My son tried various bags in the shop (pretty entertaining watching him wriggle into various sleeping bags!), but he liked this one as the mummy hood fitted him comfortably and there are toggles around the hood and the top of the bag to draw the bag more closely around the head and neck if preferred.
It has its own stuff sack, and it is really easy to repack - literally just stuffs back into the bag, no need to roll it up! - and you can even tighten the adjusters to pull it into an even tighter roll. Very compact!!
It wasn't the cheapest option available, but we based our decision on comfort, ease of use and its compactness - so for us it was a good choice.
After the weekend, I washed it in my washing machine on a cool wash and it dried perfectly, without any bunching of the filling.
Good bag, great quality., 01 November 2013

Needed a warmer bag for completing Penine Way that would not cost too much and packed down well. It's still fairly large but with some compression sack wrestleing it's ok. Very warm at freezing with hood up etc. Also during night of heavy rain when the tent was dripping it kept me dry.
