If you're handy with a sewing machine split one seam fold each in half and you have some rudimentary but warm overtrousers. style to "taste"
Well said. Common sense isn't that common these days....... (y)
A £50 sleeping bags is not always better than a cheaper one. it is like saying a £50 Adidas t-shirt is better quality than a £10 unbranded one. If you are is pathetic tent, you may be cold. If you are in a well insulated and erected tent then it is different. It is not just about the sleeping bag. There are other factors, including what you wear when you sleep in the bag. The OP did not state he was going up a mountain and did not have a decent tent. The mention is for DoE. I repeat a £50 sleeping bag is not required for a basic DoE trip. Not one single child at my son's grammar school had such an expensive bag. We were told at the meeting it was not necessary. Ask the school!
I couldn't have put it better myself - though I suspect that he/she is actually just intending to wind people up with their comments. Surely nobody is that clueless... "A £10 bag was fine for my son and his mates on a DofE trip, so nobody should ever need to spend more than £50 on one"! I mean..what??!
You're talking about one specific incident- 3rd-hand experience gained from kids on their first camping trip under the supervision of professionals in a semi-controlled environment- and applying that tiny bit of knowledge to an entire world of locations and situations of which you haven't the faintest idea of what you're talking about because from your own admission you've never done it- which to be honest makes you a total moron. If you carry on dishing out advice like that, at some point someone will get hurt or worse. You remind me of these people who are constantly draining the resources of Mountain Rescue because they got stuck up the side of a mountain without the foggiest idea of what they were doing. I don't think I've ever seen anyone openly admitting to having no knowledge or experience on a subject while simultaneously proclaiming to be an expert on the matter. That really is a new one on me!
It depends how good the tent is as well. It was -5 when mine went and they were not cold in the £10 bag. They also had a mat and wore warm bed clothes. Not one child spent £50 on a sleeping bag. Ask the school what they should buy. We can all afford a £100 bag, but it is not required.
We have 2 of these for the kids. Star wars version. They are great for kids stop overs and when kids stop over at friends houses. Easy enough to inflate with supplied pump.
In Tesco Burnley too
seen in Tesco Corby
Paw Patrol was £13 down from £30. Seems better but more for boys: https://www.tesco.com/direct/paw-patrol-my-first-readybed/451-2262.prd
Goes to £6 for 4 cans...?
I would phone up your local store - I picked up a double sleeping bag on offer for £12 !!
Nice thought though ;)
What a shame, we have loads near us, was going to offer to try to pick one up, but then looked at the weight, wouldn't be much cheaper than full price with the postage :(
Wanted the picnic blanket, not available for me guttediam, ordered the £5 sleeping bag & used the £2.50 for a £5 spend from TCB (y) Thank you https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/250-cashback-on-5-spend-26th-28th-january-topcashback-2883913
Very nice I will order 2 for my caravan classy they are you get what you pay for paid £75 for my last sleeping bags
Think of it more as a throw with a zip
Looks lovely but can't justify £30 on a sleeping bag :( still too expensive for me!
indeed it is, i will edit the post
Isn't it free click and collect 30 or over..?
Yes I've had the same the staff get all the good stuff and hide it away. I used to work in comet they all did it there.
Not coming up online at the moment. At my local it seems you can reserve stuff but as soon as you get there to collect it - its mysteriously disappeared. Staff seem happy though.
Crikey! It’s better than nothing - at the end of the day, someone is going out of their way to help a person in need: they should be celebrated, not castigated!
Call it an extra layer, the good will intent is there! Lighten up B
Temperature down do 10 degrees... Not the homeless in the uk tho, this sleeping bag is the same as a plastic bag. No insulation whatsoever. If you're giving to someone in need, make sure it's something they need and not just cheap cr*p.
And THAT is exactly why i say do your research first. A freezing cold house in Scotland is completely differant to a new build energy saver elsewhere. (skeptical)
Not sure they would come in her size though?
Invaluable for my son who constantly kicked off blankets and sheets, which was nothing to do with temperature regulation.
Do they? I don’t think it’s worth taking the risk. Bought and heat added. Anyone seen any offers on an accompanying irrigation system or lighting?
I live in rural Scotland with log fires. My house drops to well below 12 degrees at night and with a 4 month old baby these are fantastic at keeping baby warm, whereas blankets get kicked off or baby can wriggle under them which can also pose a hazard. I've used them for all 3 of my kids and think they're great. A baby does not decide to kick a blanket off to self regulate their temperature, they do it as they wriggle. Maybe a complete waste of money in your opinion, but for many they are fantastic and if I didn't use them my baby would be freezing cold
Just got mine today. Apparently my daughter has poached mine for her upcoming school trip (skeptical) Fab bags though. So glad I managed to buy! (y)
Thanks - mine have arrived. Great deal!
Mine arrived :) Bit bigger than I'd hoped but seems like it'll be warm, wouldn't fit in the rucksack I'd planned but found a suitable dry bag for it. Dropped it off at my local pub along with my old gas burner and a few cannisters plus some other camping gear I no longer use, and half a dozen pot noodles I got cheap from Amazon the other day. A guy comes past frequently as the landlord makes him a coffee when it's cold, so hopefully he'll find it useful.
Got mine today. Looks compact and decent for money, not opening coz giving to someone.
Not at home at the min but says due today still. Looks quite big, possibly too big. I'm aware homeless people have nowhere to keep stuff hence trying to fit in a rucksack. I also have a cook set and stove to put in, and a few other bits, so hoping it's on the smaller side.
Then you can you use 'it', that used to be offensive, when people 'thought' they were simply either male or female!
Person is a much better way to refer to somebody than he or she if you are not sure how they identify. Also without knowing what pronouns someone likes to use it is quite offensive to use he or she
It's getting ridiculous here I can see the time when all male public lavatories will be knocked down as sexist. All references to male and female everywhere will be replaced with 'person' Maybe the third person singular will be reduced to 'it'. Goodness know what the French will do.
This is why I didn’t talk about gender...but medically speaking both sexes are different Male and Female. Your physical, physiological and mental makeup does not change just because you choose to identify as a certain gender.
There is a lovely little hamper only £15 with discount and free delivery. Great little present for someone who lives away?
Just bought a pair of unsung brogues for £11.24 delivered. Will wait and see.
Yes! Got some great stuff for pressies thanks!
Got some great Bits many thanks for Posting Love a Ted Baker dress on the cheep (highfive)
Will it make you more clever on using this?
£24.99 on the label!
Sleeping bags need a level of breathability, body moisture needs to escape, it's surprising how much we produce in a night. That's the primary cause of it getting wet.
Will someone with deeper pockets than me please buy one of these, set light to it and report back how you get on. It's nice to get a cheap sleeping bag but they're right death traps if they're flammable, espeically mummy ones with crappy zips.
Surely, that's only if it gets wet?
But, I don't think that cotton filling for sleeping bag is a good idea. It will absorb all moisture and it'll take a long time to dry ...
Free delivery without Prime
Does anyone know if they come for 2 years olds?
hey thanks for posting, my little one is also due end of nov ;) so on the lookout for bargains!
Sorry guys - there wasn't much left in stock when I went to bed (around 2am?), so I assumed it would be gone pretty quickly. I know the sleeping bag design isn't the most appealing, but it was a good price :) She's due late November I think :) I know you can get tog-rated baby grow bags (as they're also called) for winter - baby will be six months around May? I've already bought Xmas-themed socks! Edit: Actually, I was too quick with the Expire button - there's three Blue Nursing Pillows (the £3.95 BabyDan ones) and one of the Nappy Bag (on Amazon Warehouse), left. Another Edit: (All gone, just three Blue Nursing Pillows left)! Re the ebay listing, I was trying to find a seller that was still "Live", anyway, here's a listing from the beginning of the month that says £16 for the (Beige) BabyDan Sleeping Bag http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112272553076 The Amazon price has been slowly creeping down for the BabyDan items (according to Google Cache).
If she's due soon this is suitable from 6 months and nad that means a baby would be in it from Febuary. Migh be a bit thin for that. Nursing pillows are good for reading in bed. My wife's standard gift now for newborns is a thermometer.
It's all gone :(
£16 on eBay.
