|Vango Venom 400|
|Cosy in bag and tent on the hillside|
We were contacted by the Sleeping Bag Outlet and asked to test some of the new Vango range. I jumped at the chance to test the new Venom 400. On paper this seemed exactly the type of sleeping bag we'd recommend for our wilderness trips. The bag arrived, packed neatly and much smaller that I'd expected. With its compression-sack, it tips the scales at a shade under 1kg. It's 'mummy' shaped with a short side zip, so heat loss is a minimum.

Surprisingly, unlike my old 4-season Rab bag, this sleeping bag is machine washable (though with various provisos), so we may well buy a couple more of these sleeping bags to hire out after all !
Details of this sleeping bag are here.
