Those great folk at Snugpak have furnished me with one of their mid range sleeping bags to use, abuse and review. This is a 3 season bag that is rated from a comfort @ -5 to extreme of -10 which I think will be tested thoroughly over the coming weeks on the PW.
For now, as with the smock, I am banging this up on the site with their blurb, but I will be updating my thoughts once on the Way, so wait out:
When you’re planning a trip where the night temperature can drop down below zero, the Chrysalis 3 won’t let you down. You’ll stay warm, comfortable, rested and ready for the next day’s adventures. Foot section enhanced with Thermal Suede for extra warmth and comfort.
A sleeping bag inspired by evolution.
Chrysalis is a sleeping bag that has evolved to the next level; putting you in control of temperature and comfort by transforming from a warm, snug sleeping bag, into a cool and spacious one, with a built in LED torch to assist you.
The bag boasts all the features of a quality Snugpak mummy-style sleeping bag but the jumbo zip baffle can be opened out to give much more room within the sleeping bag by opening the expanda panel. The extra space within the bag allows air to move around, keeping the bag cooler. And if the temperature drops? Just zip the bag tighter and instantly boost the warmth around you.
