Pro Action 500gsm Envelope Sleeping Bag. £16.32 @ Argos

Found 23rd Aug 2009
Been looking at getting some nice cheap, but warm sleeping bags, and came across these:

they are nice quality, and better than the ones I saw in Millets for double this price,

they may be cheap, but definately not your Tesco value type product

Black.

2 way zip to couple.

Polyester shell.

Polycotton lining.

500gsm hollow fibre filling.

Washable.

Size (L)190, (W)75cm.

Weight 1.95kg.

just bough 4 of these for camping trip in Cornwall - excellent value at this price (half price I believe)

really, really warm, nice and thick and good quality.

and as they are an envelope design, they have quite a bit of room in them, unlike the Mummy type bags, which feel like a straight jacket

they can also be zipped together for the mums and dads

a bit of a battle to get them into there cases when packing up, but still a a bargain

i bought this bag from the argos. quality is ok and warm enough in cornwall this week but not much room in it. I ended up sleeping on the air bed and had the unzipped bag over me like a quilt.

how much was this before?

edit:
ok google cache shows £24.49, but looks like this is now standard price since they are not showing a "before" price, still good though!

hmmmmm you can get "ok" quality sleeping bags for a fiver these days, not voting

Who wants to sleep in an envelope, I DO, hot from me :whistling:

Howmuch would it cost to send me to a sunny place in one of these:p

Ya sure. As Biker Jeff says... link-us-do, foo'.

iv bought sleeping bags for a fiver in sainsburys before... sorry mr biker but i wouldnt tell lies on a internet page about sleeping bags lolololol

You cant put a link up, so your post is about as relevant as me saying i can get a brand new 42 inch plasma tv for £50..... and if you compare those rubbish sleeping bags in Supermarkets with the OP's 500 GSM bag then you know nothing about sleeping bags.

Here Here- As I said in OP, i had been looking for a while,

with me beeing a total scrooge,I was looking for a QUALITY item at a CHEAP price,
I checked out Tesco, Asda etc, and found them to be a bit poor - ok for a kids sleepover at a friends house etc,

these are 500 GSM bags, they are very thick, and warm - total bargain for this price, - check Millets for a similar item and you will pay at least double

Hi
I'm sure you have bought sleeping bags for a fiver before, and no-one doubts that. However, have you bought a Pro Action 500gsm Envelope Sleeping Bag or very similar sleeping bag for less than £16.32? There are always going to be cheaper alternatives (ie own brands/inferior models etc) on any product, be that a sleeping bag, a TV or even a tin of beans; but from what I know about sleeping bags (which aint a lot I admit) this is a very good price for a Pro Action sleeping bag 500gsm. If I was needing a good sleeping bag I would probably go for this so it gets my hot vote

duck down, why - are there low ceilings in argos? :whistling:

Exactly what I was after! Ordered!

Anyone got a decent deal on a ground mat? Or any advice on what type to get?

Just got back from 3 weeks in Canada camping most of the way. Forget ground mats and get a self inflating matts I got the ones from Aldi for about £15 ebay have similar. You wont regret it!

alpkit.com/airic/ these are brilliant mats for the price.

This is the best air mat I have ever used.

I used to have a slim aric from alpkit, it was okay but nothing on this baby.

I agree, for the price Alpkit are the best self inflate mats you can get. They are second only to Thermarest with almost as good quality but far cheaper.

These are an airbed. You cant compare them to Airic which is a self inflating mat with integral expanding foam inside. They are two completely different products.

I can compare them as they serve the same purpose. To lay on when sleeping in a tent.

The airbed packs down way smaller than my wee airic ever did and it is quicker and almost as easy to blow it up than it was to wait for the wee airic to "self inflate". The wee airic always needed topping up by blowing in it anyway.

Alpkit do some seriously good gear at great prices but as I saw my airbed is superior to the airic in every way and roughly the same price.

Its not superior in every way because airbeds are not self inflating. Also airbeds will produce more condensation on the surface than a self inflate mat, subsequently self inflate mats due to their internal expanding foam are far more insulating in colder weather.
