It went VERY well thanks Gypsy. It did get to -4 on Sat nite so gave them a real good test but the kids loved them. Feeling much better this week, just a shame we had to come home :( I could have stayed longer.

I will get the photos off the camera soon and put up a report.

Another success chalked up to the good old hot water bottle.....Minus 4 is a good test for them.

Great news XB and I look forward to seeing the pics too.

The coldest it got where I was camping was 1.4.

I know it's all a bit late now, but in case someone reads this looking for sleeping bags...

I have the OzTrail Alpine one XB considered. It works ok - there are times when I have been a little cold. In the Warrambungle National Park, in September a couple of years ago. Problem was fixed by using a self-inflating mat under the sleeping bag. With that piece of kit we have travelled all over, including Jindabyne a month or so ago when it got close to 0. No problems... The flocking is good and we use it as a doona when it is a bit warmer.

My only 'problem' is that it is big when it is rolled up. Would I recommend one? If you have room for a rather large sleeping bag - yes. If not there will likely be another bag that is smaller and performs just as well...

I bought us Roman sleeping bags a while ago. I think they were rated -8. I have only tested them in about 4-5 degrees though. They were cosy warm. The only annoying thing is the hood and I didn't think about the fact that the rating assumes you'll use it. Which I don't because I hate covering my head when I sleep.

We have a couple of the Aldi hot water bottles. My daughter absolutely looooves her fluffy purple one. The only annoying thing about them though is that you cannot take the cover off and I find it a bit tricky to empty them and fill them up without getting it wet.

If it is really cold you lose a lot of heat through your head. If you can handle it wear a beanie. :P

Hi,

We just camped away for a couple of nights in our new roman advance flight 1000 sleeping bags rated -10 and were as snug as.

I was actually suprised to see a frost one of the mornings,i thought my Hubbie was joking when he got up and told us not to hurry getting up.
