Mountain Equipment Snowline Sleeping Bag Reviews
Reviewed by Mark Slater (Holmfirth) on 2009-11-17:
General comments: This is an excellent well built warm bag that fits well into rucksack bottom compartments. Have used this comfortably during the occasional cold Scottish winter and camping in Scandinavian winters.
Pros: A good 5-7 years old now and not lost much down and drillite shell keeps out any odd snow melt.
I am very jealous of any one that has one of the improved versions.
Even after regular use it has kept me warm down to about -20C (Assuming I have managed to eat before going to sleep).
Cons: Below -20C > another story
First, cold feet then all over chill > What ME mean by Extreme sleep zone (-37C) is pointless, Below -20C ish this bag alone will not give you a restful night.
Oh one last point, the hood part, now getting a bit thin and greasy (Wash this sleeping bag and you'll turn it into at best a heavy/bulky three season bag)

Shelley responded : The extreme temp guide is what it says on the box: you'll be alive at -37, but you might be without a finger or two. Just focus on the comfort temperature and bear un mind that women sleep cooler.
