sleeping bag reviews

mont-main-range-sleeping-bag-

mont highland sleeping bag review

"The Mont Highland down sleeping bag is part of Mont’s 'Specialist Boxfoot Series', which is designed for maximum insulation in cold, mountain environments. Each bag in the range features a durable waterproof outer shell, high-loft down (750+), a thermally efficient mummy shape and various baffle construction techniques. The Mont Highland sleeping bag straddles the line between a three- and four-season sleeping bag. When used in conjunction with a winter-weight liner and thermals, I have found the Mont Highland to be toasty-warm on early spring ski tours in the Main Range. At other times of the year, the full-length zip can be opened and closed to regulate the desired sleeping temperature. Sleeping bags in the Specialist Boxfoot Series use very comfortable materials. At 1250g, the Mont Highland makes for a warm and versatile sleeping bag."—NICK

 

 

 

choosing a sleeping bag

Shapes that sleeping bags are available in are generally defined as rectangular or mummy-shaped. Most of our rectangular bags are called tapered rectangular, as they are slightly narrower at your feet than at your shoulders. Some people prefer a mummy-shaped bag, because they maximise warmth while minimising weight and bulk. Other people prefer a tapered rectangle for greater room and flexibility of use: they can be unzipped fully and used as a doona in hot weather, or, in summer, a couple can use one bag over the top as they sleep.

Temperature Range

The 'temperature range' of a sleeping bag is a guideline. Some people are warm sleepers, others are not. In general, men feel the cold less than women, and a young people feel the cold less than someone who is older. The warmer temperature listed for each bag is for someone who feels the cold, the colder temperature is for someone who does not feel the cold. Other factors that affect how warm or cold you feel are how tired you are, how well you have eaten, your hydration level, how good your sleeping mat is and if you are tenting on your own or with another person.

Fill Type

The advantages of a synthetic fill are a lower price, and it's better than down if conditions are damp. Synthetic fill may also suit people with allergies.

The advantages of down fill are that it is light, compact and has a longer life than synthetic fill. There are different loft qualities available; higher loft gives greater warmth for the same weight.

All our down sleeping bags' loft figures use the European Standard EN12130. Be aware, if you're making comparisons with American brands, that US brands use a different standard. The approximate comparisons are as follows:

560 EU = 610 US
660 EU = 725 US
750 EU = 850 US
 

Weight

Sleeping bag weight is important, and is related to the above factors. If you are carrying it in your pack over long distances, get one that is light and compact, yet still within your weight and shape factors. Higher quality fill will add warmth without weight.

Features

Special features can increase comfort and warmth (and also increase the price of the sleeping bag). For example, hoods add warmth. A '3D' hood is even warmer. Draft tubes along the zip keep out the cold. A '3D' foot box keeps feet warmer. Vertical baffles in the chest area help stop down from shifting during the night. Horizontal baffles allow down to be moved around the bag for greater flexibility in temperature use. A water-resistant Hydronaute XT shell adds warmth with negligible weight increase; even more so in damp conditions. An Exped Waterbloc's fabric keeps the down drier in the worst conditions; hence, you stay warmer.
