The Roman Palm Passport is compact, lightweight and reliable. It is every backpackers dream sleeping bag with its high-quality lightweight materials which ensure maximum temperature to weight ratio while remaining breathable and compact.
Features, such as the extra fill around the feet and the anti-snag system to stop zippers getting caught that truly make this bag stand out from the “me toos”.
Camped out in caves in the Budawangs for 3 nights. It was pretty cold with a cold wind. I feel the cold and so was pleasantly surprised how warm and comfy it was in the Roman. Very happy with this purchase.
This bag is cosy, I've just slept in 1degree with a S2S liner and I am super warm. This bag will do 0 no problems. BUT it is short, there is no way the 185cm height claim is realistic, I'm 178 and I can't pull the bag up over my shoulders nor use the snug around the head. It's also very narrow around the shoulders, I'm used to sleeping in mummy bags and this thing feels tight all over compared to my mummy bags, mostly shoulder room. Will I survive in this bag the odd occasion I'm camping at 0degrees ? Most likely. Will I enjoy sleeping in it? No. If your shorter than me by 10cm, then you'll love this bag. Otherwise I cannot recommend it as a true cold weather bag.
Thanks for your feedback, Rich... although I'm sorry to hear that you're not loving your new sleeping bag. Your comments will be very helpful for those looking for a new sleeping bag, especially for those that are around 175-185cm tall.
Thanks again, Laine :)
Had a cooler night than anticipated and had no problems with the bag keeping me nice and warm. It is a bit of a snug fit around the leg area though and can feel a bit tight if you roll around in your sleep. I'm roughly 180cm tall.
My only problem is that one of the compression straps has snapped off the tail end of the bag after stuffing the sleeping bag back in its home after the third use.
Perfect for intended function which was a relatively compact packed bag comfortable to 0 degrees that will maintain warmth when wet.
The synthetic insulation is the best choice of camping where the bag may become damp or wet and that's what happened to me. I only realised the bottom half of the bag was wet when I got up in the morning and got out of the bag. Perfectly warm and the temperature was around 2 degrees C.
Excellent price for the performance, weight and size. Best bag in this price range.
I really wanted to test this bag as there’s been mixed reviews on google. Everyone here seems to write good reviews on it, so I really wanted to put it to the test. So on 19th- 20th May we camped at Mount Kosciuszko National Park. The weather was -3°at night but felt like -8° the wind 25 to 30 knot’s. It was a really cold night. I had a foam mat under my sea to summit si mat to keep to cold from rising up to my body. I slept with my thermo pyjamas only, no socks and no beanie, and with the top air vents of the tent opened. What I can say is it did keep my body and toes warm. I was nice and cozy until about 3.30am. This is when the wind really picked up, and I mean picked up. I honestly thought the tent was going to collapse it was that windy. I really think that if there was no wind it would of kept me warm all night, and the fact that I had the vents of the tent opened and the side wall of the tent was hitting my back all night due to the wind, made me a bit cold. The only part of me getting cold was the back of my hips and feet, not a lot but still enough for me to add my STS Thermolite reactor fleece liner. I’m use to wide sleeping bags so I can spread my knees, this bag I was limited in doing that because it is smaller in the wide department, but I knew that before buying the sleeping bag. On a normal cold winters night, with no snow or wind, I really believe it would do the job and I wouldn’t have to add anything like liner’s. Am still very happy with the bags performance considering the weather that night.
Took this to the snowy and camped next to a river so overnight temps were low (4-6 degrees) had no problem at all keeping toasty the sleeping bag is fantastic.
All my mates had cold sleeps but I was incredibly comfortable and even too hot with thermals and I'm usually pretty sensitive to the cold.
Only small qualm is the length, I'm 6'3 and it felt slightly short and my shoulders were a little exposed.
Being a tapered bag it was hard to curl up in it.
Would definitely recommend.
Bought this for motorcycle camping. I've only used it once so far. I've only used it once so far. The temp went down to about 7 degrees and I was a bit cool. I know I can add thermals etc so hopefully that will be better, particularly in SA's outback in the winter. I'm not convinced it's long enough for me, I'm only 5'11 so only time will tell. Size wise it packs down well.
Thanks for posting your review Dean.
When it comes to keeping warm during the cooler months - make sure you've got an insulated mattress... they make a big difference! Unfortunately, airbeds without insulation or stretcher beds for that matter, are tough to stay toasty as you're just lying on top of cold air - insulated mats will trap your body heat in.
I hope this helps. Laine :)
I’m currently travelling through Chile, just spent a week camping in Torres del Paine National Park where the weather gods weren’t on our side, it snowed but I’m very happy to say my sleeping bag kept me very warm. Very happy with my purchase. Patagonia is a must visit!!!
That's so cool JP - thanks for sharing!
Not much to say other than the wife is very comfortable in this bag at 0 degrees and is usually a cold sleeper. I think this bag outperforms my Nepalese branded bag which was twice the price at 60% off sale. Service and delivery was excellent and price is way cheaper than other stores I tried.
Just received this sleeping bag today, 3 days on the road to travel 1700 klm, the fastest delivery I have ever had. Testing as I type in my hootchi, it is -6 and I am toasty warm, it is projected to go to -7 I don't think I will have a problem.THANK YOU SSSNOWYS!
Which Roman Sleeping Bag Liner fits this product best?
I'd recommend looking at the Roam Silktex liners in either a rectangular or mummy shape, but if you'd prefer the comfort of cotton they also make rectangular and mummy options there for you. They'll just be a bit bigger/heavier than the Silktex. I try to avoid using the 'travel' liners with the pillowcase attached as you really don't need it in a sleeping bag.
Will this suit 186 cm normal to skinny built male?
At 186cm the user will be right on the edge of suitability for this sleeping bag Betissa, my recommendation would be to look for something longer. The Extremelite is a little longer, and cheaper, but not nearly as warm or efficient. The next option is more expensive but is a much better bag, this bag is the Sea To Summit Voyager.
Black Wolf has a new bag called the Equinox, and I've just noticed that these are not online. They are in a similar price range to the Roman Palm series and look to be about 5-10 cm longer than the Palm series too. I'll work on getting these online in the next few days.
Hi - I'm trying to work out whether the -5 rating for this bag is comfort or extreme? The Roman website is not very helpful....I'm looking for a lightweight bag to take on the Overland Track in January that won't break the bank. Thank you!
The -5° rating on the Roman Palm Passport Sleeping Bag (-5°) is the comfort rating temp.
I reckon you'd be on a winner there, during summer in Tassie the Roman Palm Passport Sleeping Bag should suit you well.
My chest measures 135 cm, will,this bag be a comfortable fit?
The Roman Palm Passport Sleeping Bag has an internal chest girth of 140cm. So whilst it'll be a little tight, you should still be able to fit into it relatively comfortably.
What's the length of the bag up to the hood? Even though it says the max height is 185cm, the fact that the external dimensions are 210cm makes me think it would be fine for a 192cm male.
I've just re-measured the Roman Palm Passport, and the internal length of the bag up to the hood is 185cm, so I think this model is a little bit too small for your height Rob.
