5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Pod, 14 Jun 2010
This review is from: Gelert Sleeping Pod XL (Sports)
Being 6'2" tall and over 250 lbs (18 stones) can be a problem when looking for a sleeping bag that doesn't make you feel like a bondage fetishist (I'm not, but hey, whatever turns you on). The roomy Pod (yes, even those of 'FB' size will find it spacious) provides the perfect solution. In both length and width there is ample space to toss and turn (or even just turn) all night long. And the extra space provides a fresher sleeping environment. I would accept that the Pod wouldn't provide enough warmth other than in very mild or warmer temperatures for most people, but those of us who have our own natural protection against the elements may find this suitable for all but winter use.

Folded and packed away it's not the smallest item to have to carry, but I sacrificed a few clothes in order to squeeze it into my rucksack, which I could then easily carry on my motorbike. It is bulky rather than heavy. It was worth it. I would highly recommend the excellent Pod to everyone - and particular to those who are 'bigger boned'.

I'm new to camping and not even sure if I'm going to buy a 'pod' but I love your sense of humour

Brilliant Review '(or even just turn)' & 'FB size'.
Made me laugh.

Thanks Bluenose, a great review, nice to see somebody with a good sense of humour.
From a fellow 'big boner'. (no, not that sort!)
