From £159 www.mammut.com
‘Shrink it and pink’ it was the first thing that sprang to mind when I saw this bag. At 170cm it was too small, which led to an interesting night switching between the head being cold or the feet being squashed, luckily the fleece lining by the feet helped to keep them warm and cosy. The synthetic filling also did a good job of keeping my body warm once the drawcords had been adjusted at the neck. This is unsurprising given it has a comfort rating of -3°C and a comfort limit of -10°C. At 1600g it isn’t the lightest sleeping bag, but it comes with a compression sack which helps to reduce its bulk a little so it can fit in a rucksack. It is worth noting that a larger 185cm version is available for taller women.
► Verdict: A good synthetic option, but still on the heavy side.
► Best for: Cold nights on shorter trips where the weight won’t be an issue.
