Sea to Summit Flame Women's Sleeping Bag
Features & how to pack away
Details & Specs
On fast and light trips in cooler conditions, the Flame Fm3 will keep you comfortable while you sleep without the excess weight.
The Flame has an expedition mummy bag size to give you extra room and is shaped to be wider at the hips and narrower at the shoulders for a women’s specific fit. Featuring a lightweight 10D nylon shell and 7D liner, this bag also has a full zip with two sliders so you can access it easily and ventilate if necessary. It’s filled with RDS certified 850+ Loft premium goose down with an ULTRA-DRY water-repellent treatment to protect it from external moisture and condensation.
The full box baffle construction helps reduce cold spots and accommodates the extra down while the vertical baffles on the chest prevent it moving around. To minimise heat loss, there’s also a hood and front neck draft collar and zipper draft tube. Providing a -4°C comfort rating and a -10°C lower limit, this bag is designed for chillier conditions.
For a reliable sleeping solution on minimalist expeditions, you can rely on the Flame Fm3 Sleeping Bag from Sea to Summit.

Hi there, would this one suit the overland in March (Autumn)?

Theres a few variables that go into this answer, its impossible to say absolutely as everyones physiologies are different. The first one is determining the R-value of your sleeping mat. If you have a mat with an R-Value of 4 or more, the sleeping bag should perform in the ball park of the comfort temp stated. If your sleeping mat has an R-Value of less than 4, the sleeping bag will not be as warm. The second one is wether or not you consider yourself to be an average or cold sleeper. As a general rule of thumb, if you are an average sleeper you should aim for a sleeping bag with a comfort temp of 5ºc lower than the coldest ambient temp you expect to be in...take that to 10ºc lower if you consider yourself a cold sleeper.
As a general guide, if you have a R-Value 4 mat & you are an average sleeper, this bag should keep you happily sleeping cozy between 1ºc to -4ºc, and can be zipped open to use more like a quilt with a footbox for anything warmer than that.
Hope that helps with your decision!

Can the flame Women’s bags zip into the Spark sleeping bags to convert to a double?
Jodie - Melbourne, VIC(1 year ago)
G'day Jodie, no, the Flame and Spark Bags are not zipper compatible or designed to be connected to one another. If you're looking for some options you can zip together as a double, then check out the Altitude and Ascent, or the Journey and Trek models.

Best Size1 answer
Hi, I'm larger with wide hips and was wondering what size would fit best. I'm only 162cm tall. My hips are a couple cms narrower than the 142cm measurement given. I'm wondering if the regular size would be too much of a squish? I don't want to damage the sleeping bag by say breaking the thread of a seam when moving in the night.
Xavier - Westmead, NSW(2 years ago)
Its really hard to say for sure, but I'm always of the opinion that if in doubt, go larger. The length isn't going to affect the performance of the bag, but being too small around the body, and creating a lot of pressure spots in the bag will, especially in a mummy cut like this. Check out the video at around 4:45min mark. My hips are 128cm and whilst I have room around my body needed to go up in length, I'm also not a fan of mummy bags at all, so need more room. The visual demo might give you an idea of how the bag fits, and I think the long version would be a more comfortable option for you.

Size 1 answer
I’m 5’7 should I get the regular or long size?
Mel - Melbourne Airport, VIC(3 years ago)
You're right on the cusp of being a tad too tall for the regular size, which has a max user height of 170cm. Lauren in our video is 171cm tall, and while she can fit in the bag, she did indicate she'd prefer the long version, as it gives a little more space to move.
