    Did u get them to wrap it as a gift so that it could slip through customs?
    Thats right.

    Alright fellas,

    I typed a massive reply to this thread regarding my purchase of a new sleeping bag but somehow managed to 'select all' and delete everything

    In short,

    Contacted One Planet regarding their bungle line of sleeping bags, they said their 700+ model is sitting at 785 loft and the 800+ at 825 loft. making the 700+ model the clear winner concerning value for money (they confirmed this decision too, very helpful staff)

    Found two stores in NZ that stock the 700+, -10 model.

    Ended up buying one from Livingsimply.co.nz . rung them up and the guy said he was fine with giving me a 10% disount, paid $450, down from $500. Also great service from them, highly reccomended.

    $450 new for a bag thats basically 800+ loft, has an -10 EN lower comfort, is Semi rectangular, and weighs in at 1KG, seemed like a great buy to me comparing it to other bags.

    Thanks for everyones input and words of wisdom

    Cheers
    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?
