Nice 2 season bag, not 3 like the ad suggests!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Highlander Kids Sleephaven Sleeping Bag (Sports)
Temperature ratings shown on Amazon are not the same as the ones on the bag! When I purchased this bag, one of the main things I was looking for, was a warm bag that would cover 3 seasons. The temperatures shown on the Amazon Ad are almost identical to my own 3 season bag, so I went ahead and ordered it. The sleeping bag arrived this morning and straight away I noticed it being called a 2 season bag. I then noticed the temperature rating, the comfort limit rating was 7c not 3c as shown in the Ad. Even worse is the Lower Limit, the Ad states -2.8c when in actual fact, it's only 4c.
Upper Limit -
Amazon = 13.8c
Actual = 14c
Comfort Limit -
Amazon = 3c
Actual = 7c
Lower Limit -
Amazon = -2.8c
Actual = 4c
So, as far as sleeping bags go, it's is a nice bag. Good fabric and well stitched. It is also extra wide, so ideal for those who don't like the claustrophobic mummy bags. If I was looking for a summer bag, then this would have been ideal. However, I wanted the security of a lower rated bag for those nights (like last weekend) where the temperature dropped to an unseasonal low. This bag doesn't give me that security, not the fault of the bag, just whoever filled out the description on the Ad.
I think I may just go into Blacks or Craigdon Sports next time and see the ratings for myself.
