My new sleeping bag

I visited Mountain Designs and many other camping and bicycle shops in Canberra today, many of the stores had their winter sales on.  Most of the bicycle shops don’t seem to stock any mirrors which I found strange.

I remember going into camping store when I was much younger and the shops having acres of tents setup so people could check them out, but today it seems only the larger family tents get this treatment.  Maybe it’s the fuzziness of time that makes it seem this way, everything seemed larger back in the day.

Anyhow I bought myself a Wanderer 200 sleeping bag, (on sale $54 down from $109) limited range of colours by the time I purchased it, would have liked a green one but black will do. Totally Ninja.

Also popped into Anaconda at Fyshwick, I must say holy moly, they have a lot of stock and a bike section which was having a 40% off everything (ends Tuesday).  Even joined Anaconda as a member online.

  1. Hey Eddie, How did your sleeping bag work out for you? I’m thinking about buying one of these. Does it pack down pretty small? Has it withstood the test of time?

    Thanks,
    Kate

    1. Hello Kate,

      It does pack down pretty well and it does keep me warm, if it gets too hot, just unzip it into a quilt.
      It fits back into it’s bag without a fight or swearing and then the pull-downs do the rest.

      Cheers
      Eddie
