The size of this bag and box-type design means that there’s room enough for two inside (well, not quite).

Coupled with a cotton lining, rather than fleece, it allows you to move freely once inside the bag, which adds to the comfort. Despite the fact that I use a bedchair that’s wider than most, except the purpose-designed, extra-wide bedchairs, this bag still fits on mine. The outer material is water resistant and breathable, but I would advise coupling it with a waterproof bedchair cover. The outer of the bag does get wet with condensation and takes a while to dry, although the inside remains dry. This is a thick, five-season bag, but can still be folded up inside certain bedchairs with a little ‘persuasion’. However, it is supplied with a decent, zipped stuff sack that allows the bag to be packed away surprisingly small, given its padding. While I haven’t had any problems as yet, the crash zips don’t look/feel as durable as others on the market. When all is said and done, though, you get a fantastic bag that’s worthy of a higher price tag.
