    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    @gimp & @gadgetman

    Are those Macpac puffers any kind of tough? And what about rain, do you need to get a shell over them quickly or can they handle quite a bit?

    yep stoney creek one all good, i have a sitka one aswell and seem to wear the stoney creek one, the sitka cut is abit different, its warm enough for winter tops, and small enough to chuck the tahr anorak or glasnock over the top, but id choose my good macpac one for serious mid winter trips only because its warmer, the macpac is certinally more bulkier - i see they dont sell my model of macpac anymore but it was the top one when i bought it

    That one in pic is a mont bell #3, OK down to zero or so, tarns were iced in morning, that's just with a foam mattress, did get the shivers abit but that was only sleeping in my jocks, chuck the down jacket on and my longjons and warm
    Have slept in the landsbrough in it late May and warm with down jacket and a down filled mattress thingy

    My other one I take is mont bell #0 but a lot bulkier- nice and warm......

    My feet get very cold in both bags, I think that's because I'm taller and they touch the end.

    If your a bigger fella you may struggle with the mummy shape of the #3... It certinally hugs your body and I busted the zip on my first trip trying to stretch out abit

    A good quality mattress accounts for a lot and at current am using a foam because my neoair is full of leaking patches so am loosing a fair bit of warmth out the bottom

    Sorry for long winded reply @longrange308

    cheers for the reply,just the kind of helpful answer I needed,
    I'm using a winter lite Mat which ads a lot of warmth and my current down bag is too warm with it and takes up more room than it needs too
