Yes, you could borrow the sleeping bag that Uncle Ted used to take duck-shooting… but modern sleeping bags are compact and so much lighter and warmer. We offer a mix’n’match assortment:

Bags (all degree rated on the EN13537 scale):
a 0° synthetic bag (sturdy)
a -1° ultra-light down bag (oh so light! oh so small!)
a -8° down bag for those who are really REALLY afraid of the cold, and/or vampires.

Liners:
• our standard stretchy t-shirt material liner (cuddly)
• a toasty ‘Thermolite Reactor Extreme’ liner which increases sleeping bag performance by a few to several degrees (depending on how warm you sleep)
• a silk/cotton liner (teeny tiny and super light)

To those for whom too much reading about sleeping bags and liners is never enough (Ian), head for the bottom of the page. Those who care about weight (Gail) can find them in the drop down menus.

    [Took 0° synthetic bag and standard liner]
    We have done several walks but haven’t ever needed to carry a sleeping bag so it was great to be able to hire one rather than having to go to the expense of buying a good quality one. The sleeping bags were of excellent quality and came with very good sleeping bag liners.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    [Took -1° down bag and standard liner]
    Wonderfully light and warm sleeping bag. Even better is the cosy, stretchy inner sheet – I seriously considered buying one to use at home!

    [Took -1° down bag & thermolite liner]
    It’s really effective in keeping my body warm during the chilly nights at Tasman Peninsula. It comes with a waterproof case and lining too. I find it easy to carry around during my trek as I could simply strap it onto my backpack. Highly recommend!

    The bag and standard liner worked perfectly for me. We went in the middle of the winter and I run a LOT warmer than my fiancée. She used the thermalite liner with the 0° bag and she was very comfortable as well.

    My girlfriend had the extra toasty, and she was in heaven in the sleeping bag.
    Mine was the standard, and it was just a tad too short for a big guy like me (190cm and broad) Cold shoulders but rest was warm.
    Told this information to super nice Gail and Ian, they are on it to fix it.

    • Hi Kim and thanks for the reviews – and after speaking to you we now stock extra-long bags for people over 185cm (or 6-foot in old money). Now we just have to remember to ask everyone their height! If you’re looking at this to order a bag from us, let us know if you’re one of the skyscraper crowd…

The three essential differences between down and synthetic sleeping bags are weight, performance and care.

A down bag with the same temperature rating as a synthetic bag will generally be hundreds of grams lighter and pack smaller – pretty happy advantages.

It follows that down’s performance, on a weight-for-warmth basis, is superior. Unless – and here’s the rub – your feathers get wet. A damp down bag is pretty much useless, whereas a damp synthetic bag does give you a little protection – very handy if you’re tent-hiking in a remote wet area.

Of course, the damp-performance factor isn’t going to be a biggie for you if you hire a sleeping bag from us to walk the Three Capes Track. Your bag will be protected while you’re on the track – either in a waterproof stuff sack or (if you also hire one of our rucksacks) a waterproof pack liner. And at night you’ll be in a lovely, dry, comfortable hut. So our advice would be to make your sleeping-bag choice on weight and price.

Speaking of which, the last essential difference – care – is the main reason our down bags are more expensive to hire. Down’s trickier and much more time-consuming to care for (plus you have to consider that our down bags’ recommended retail price is more than double that of our synthetic bags).

To give our walkers more comfort and to protect and extend the life of our sleeping bags, we send every bag out with a linerPlease use it! 

Our standard liner is a soft, stretchy cotton blend that’s perfect for most people in most conditions. We also carry a Thermolite Reactor Extreme liner that you should consider if you tend to be a cold sleeper – its fine-weave fabric and tapered shape adds anything from a few to several degrees extra warmth. We sent out one of each with two doughty rangers spending a few days on Frenchmans Cap. They each slept in the standard liner one night and the ‘reactor extreme’ on another. Their verdict: the ‘reactor extreme’ was definitely, noticeably warmer.

Last, if you’re hungry for the full luxe experience, we offer dreamy silk/cotton liners, which are tiny and super lightweight.
