Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Ever since one particular cold night on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco πŸ‡²πŸ‡¦ 2016, I knew I needed to up-the-anti regarding my sleeping bag. As some people sleep with the fires πŸ”₯ of Gondor burning in them, I on the other hand, sleep on the opposite spectrum ie. chilled!

My old Cumulus bag was purchased for my New Zealand πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ cycle in 2012. It’s had plenty of use. It’s supposedly rated to -7 degreee comfort … bah humbug! I freeze my nuts off by that point. In fact, I do, anything near to zero!

While in Perth, Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί end of the 2017, I had a browse at a Talus II in an outdoor shop. I knew that moment I coveted it! I purchased one here in the UK early 2018. I paid Β£289. As of the August 2018, it’s Β£320. Didn’t I do well! The bag was also considerably cheaper in the UK compared to Aus. But considering it’s manufactured in China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ and then probably shipped direct to the UK. I think! Missing the expensive goods market in Aus.

I’ve used Sea To Summit gear previously and been very impressed with the quality and back-up customer service. Even in the UK! And again, with this bag, the quality belies the price. One major thing that I focused on, is an anti-snag-zip πŸ€ If you’ve used bags where the zips snags (all the bloody time with the Cumulus) you’ll love this zip system. It seems to be a straightforward process of a hardened layer of material next to each zip-slider. Works really well πŸ˜

As I write this (August 2018), I’ve yet to use the bag in anger. So I’ll follow this post up with a further review once I’ve been out in the wilds πŸ•οΈ
