    Love their puffer jackets and they last forever so I imagine the bags are much the same.

    Yeah man that's the one I was referring to. Blair is not advertising them but I will be buying one at some stage for sure.
    I have still got my first puffer that I got from him near on 20 years ago, it won't die!
    Have just ordered a custom prima loft jacket for a all round go to jacket for hunting down south.

    I am the same, l have had one of there jackets for 14 yrs, that has been around the world hunting & worn by countless clients when their latte sippin in crowd shit would not cut it ,l hope it has meant overseas sales for them .

    Can you make sure you put up a review of the new jacket & bag when you get them,might get the missus to get me one of his bags for xmas if they are up to expectations.

    Hi @Pixie Z I have a macpac latitude xp 700 which I have found really good. I used it a couple weeks ago on a tahr trip just after the cold snap. Camped in the snow and probably had temperatures around -6. Found it really warm with just thermals on.

    I use a Sea to summit ascent ii, good winter scratcher. Had it at the bottom of Mt Cook comfy in -6. It has a couple extra zips so it can be used as a quilt and a larger foot box with zip. Weighs about a kilo

    Yea mate, I would say it’s the back country, I got one made for my fiordland trip and it’s bloody waterproof, light, warm as can still operate in it, and tough, his gear is top notch.

    No worries mate, I was in the same boat as you, had a family member working at macpac so got a really good deal on it so was a no brainer.

    Ryan, I’ve got a Domex halo sleeping bag that packs up pretty small and is only 1kg. It’s good for most things with a liner but mid winter it sucks! The next bag I buy will definitely be a macpac epic 800 or 1000. I’ll take the extra size and weight Any day for a warm comfortable nights sleep while mid winter tahr hunting

    Carithina defence 400 is what the cool kids use.

    It's the best sleeping bag I have used,the foot box is wide enough to sleep with your boots on. If you wear clothes in it ,it's good for -20.The shell is waterproof and the compression sack it too,it has many straps and is designed to live outside your pack.

    I use it Reindyr hunting,the weather can be really cold and filthy. I had to sleep out in the Lee of a bolder about -10 without a tent and driving snow a couple of years back. Woke up with the cover frozen crispy but only my nose was cold.


    Plus if you buy one you will look cool,that alone is priceless.
