    Few questions for you guys that have them.

    1. What is the best way to fold them up ? after rolling them up from the bottom and tucking it into the hood I have done the centre strap up but what are the 2 side straps for ?

    2. What roll mat do you use that can be kept in the sleeping bag as after fitting mine between the outer shell and blanket it will not roll up and fit into the hood :( so had to remove it, but would have been nice to roll it all up into one package.

    Right so that is what the straps are for :)
    Maybe that is why my mat won't fit in as it's 10mm thick

    That's my mine made up then, I'm getting one of these for the summer camping and I'll get a duvet and bivi bag to go with it for winter camping. (That's if it needs a bivi bag?)

    I can get a sleep mat and a spare blanket to roll up into the hood and fasten the buttons, without much hassle.

    I thought the side straps, were for compression, but had some end pieces missing. As I was otherwise well made up with my bag, I overlooked this supposed failing and instead experimented with straps as a means securing the roll to my rucksac. Proof if you give an idiot enough time they will do the right thing by accident :p

    i would recomend a bivi bag to cover it with if you plan on sleeping under a bush with it mate .....

    but at the winter event when it was -10 the bag had ice all over the outside and i stayed warm and dry so i guess they must be fairly water proof.....or you could get the spray on water proofer to treat it with to make sure
