This Highlander echo 400 sleeping bag is ideal for extremly cold conditions. The bag is designed to keep you warm from head to toe. The foot box and 3D neck baffle provide you with extra protection and comfort. Other features include 8 to -9 degree C comfort range, -27 degree C extreme temperature, soft polyester 240T microfibre inner filling and cire W/R coated polyester ripstop 210T outer filling. QFX3D fabric is a specialist fibre filling that has been designed for use in outdoor applications such as sleeping bags and quilted outer garments. The best insulators are very effective at trapping air, each individual filament of fibre is spiralled with 4 hollow cores which significantly increases the ability to trap air. The QXF3D fibre is lighter than ordinary solid fibre fillings. It is a high loft filling, which adds to its insulating abilities but it compresses effectively to minimise pack size. It retains its insulating properties even when damp and is an easy care filling that can be carefully machine washed.

It is WARM, unexplainably warm. It defies how it manages this because it is just a normal size bag. I have had much bulkier ones which are not half as warm. This was the number one priority for me, and I have NOT been disappointed.
It is WASHABLE: I have a £300 down winter sleeping bag, and this is the only thing comparable to the echo 400 for warmth. However even the down bag is not as physically comfortable as the Echo, and of course the problem with down is it cannot easily be washed. The Highlander is the perfect all round solution.Read more ›
Another plus is that they are synthetic fibre so if they do get a little damp from condensation etc in the tent, there's little / no loss of loft and they dry pretty quickly.
I carried these on my bike crushed into large Sea To Summit crush sacks (fully waterproof and indomitably strong) in crappy old front panniers; warm and dry for ten days camping!
Fitting the sleeping bags into these crush sacks put the emphasis on 'crush' (if you have arthritis or weakness in your joints it may be a no-no); each night the sleeping bags were fully lofted by the time we'd eaten, taken a stroll and a beer, and were ready for bed.
Last year we bought two of these for £22.64 each and two large (NOT extra large) Sea to Summit waterproof compression sacks for £25 a piece (Sea to Summit ~ Compression Sack, Large - 20 Liter by Sea to Summit) giving a total cost of around £96. So that was two, very warm, 4-season sleeping bags, kept dry, that were easily carried in panniers, in NW Scotland in October (I know I mentioned that last bit at the beginning but it bears repeating)!
At this writing the large compression sacks are vastly expensive as there's only a seller listing from the US; I'd expect that to change on and off and, of course, the newer version(s) may be listed slightly differently; same for these sleeping bags too (certainly they will be a lot cheaper in the summer).
My only complaints are that when the bag arrived, there were numerous threads of cotton which were hanging from the bag seams and elsewhere. I even stitched up one part of a seam, to prevent it getting worse. These threads can make doing the zip up a bit tricky if they get in the way of the zip, but generally just seem to show that the bag is not that well manufactured. I would also say that this bag is BIG when packed up in its stuff sack and not really suitable for hiking trips; but unless you spend alot of money, then any 4 season bag is going to be on the big side.
Overall I am happy with this bag, but may have gone for the Gelert equivalent if I had seen it before buying this one.

the most comfy sleeping bed ever. Just the stitching could have been better.
Massive, and hard to compressed. Takes a lot of space in bag.
