The Sea to Summit Basecamp BC2 Sleeping Bag is a cunning little piece of kit. Warm enough to get you through a chilly winter hike, but versitile enough to be your one-size-fits-all bag.
Sure, it's filled with 750+ loft 90/10 premium grey duck down, making it a beautiful lofty bag that boasts a great weight vs warmth ratio. But it's the way that it handles anything that you throw at it that makes it so impressive. It's really cold? No worries. Zip yourself right up, pull the hood over your head, and pull the drawcords tight. Toasty in no time. It's warming up. Great. Unzip either side or both at once. Let the air flow. Bit warmer? Zip both sides right down just leaving a comfy foot box to keep your most extreme extremities snug. Things are heating up? Zip the top from the base and use it as a quilt. Now it's really hot? Cool. Strap the base to your sleeping mat and go 'topless'!
I did say the Basecamp was versitile, didn't I? And to top it off it has a neat little elastic strap to strap your pillow to the outside of the hood. No more waking up with a crook neck. Just super comfy sleep, no matter what the temperature.
I am a lot bigger now in my sixties than I was in my twenties,and a lot less comfortable on the ground.Here in my opinion is a great lightweight answer to this tired lament ,very roomy very warm [ important at night] with the added convenience of handy straps to hold my pillow and me in place on the matching inflatable mat.Now this is a great piece of kit the only slight ,and forgivable negatives are the color I like more subdued bushcraft greens etc,and that initial cost ,but when I consider all the money I have spent on many previous cheaper alternatives that have always ,no matter how hard I have tried to deny it failed to meet this very high standard of quality and comfort ,it is probably in reality a very sound investment in a damn good nights sleep,[ priceless when tired from hiking] Thanks for listening, PS oh yes nearly forgot there was plenty of room to wriggle I am 180cm [5 foot 10inches] and about 100 kilo of pure Scottish muscle [well maybe 50/50 muscle and fat].
Hey, Snowys, just wanted to know can you zip two of these amazing sleeping bags together.
Great question. I've just spoken with the designer at Sea to Summit and you can zip the Sea to Summit Basecamp BC I & II bags together. It takes a bit of organisation to get all the zips lined up correctly, but it is absolutely possible and will provide a comfortable double bag arrangement.
