New Sleeping System

#1
For Gear Spotter or any of the other resident experts, does anyone know if there is any plan for a new sleeping system? I saw a couple of trials versions a few years ago, but nothing appears to have come of it.

There are plans to replace the existing bomb with a 3-season bag for temperate use and a 1-season bag for hot weather use that can then be zipped in to give you 4-season capability if needed. Mid-2012 would be earliest anticipated ISD.

Sounds a bit like the US system, in which the bags are poppered together - the resulting combined bag is suprisingly compact, and very toasty!

Both bags also popper into the gortex bivvi bag, which is side-zipping (like the sleeping bags). As a result, I found it was much easier and quicker to get into (and out of) your bag at night. The only disadvantage to a side-zip bag is that it makes it next to useless as a stuff sack for river crossings.
