Even at zero degrees with ice on the inside of our tent during our trip to the Isle of Arran, this sleeping bag kept me toasty warm.

SnugPak Softie 9 Hawk sleeping bag
An affordable sleeping bag designed for very low temperatures, but did it deliver?

A lovely, comfortable and a brilliant size, just like a pillow you would find at home.

Trekology Dream Comfort inflatable pillow
A quiet pillow at a reasonable price.
