    Sleeping Bag recommendation 22nd Jan 18 at 7:05 PM
    Seeking a new sleeping bag that is comfy down to almost freezing point, for a grown adult. where the lining/filler will not shift creating cold gaps.
    If online, cheap shipping.
    Budget is cheap as possible ~15

    I searched, but the threads are years old. Also noticed a lot of reviews on well-known retail sites are exaggerated etc.

    Try www.mountainwarehouse.com

    Just be aware that cheap budget sleeping bags tend to be 2 season only (i.e. not intended for use in really cold weather).

    Tresspass have some cheap options in, but I would advise against 'cheap' we go camping in the summer and even then tend to have a double sleeping bag, a single over the top and then a thin duvet...

    (Maybe we just get cold haha) But I'd look at paying just a little bit more in order to get that comfort value.

    If not, Decathlon is probably your best bet for cheap and relatively okay.

    - 40 but comfort is 5 degrees. It's probabaly the cheapest you will find for that comfort rating

    Your budget not enough.
    You probably need to find 3 or 4 season

    forgot to ask, is it for man or woman?
    If it is for man, you need to look at the 'limit temp'.
    If it is for women, you need to look 'comfort temp'

    BTW I have a Outwell sleeping bag, I like it.
    I can't remember which model, it is similar to these

    Did you try in ASDA? or try in any group buying websites where you can buy along with another person to get discounted price. But still, 15 is a very less budget. Try to be a bit flexi with the amount.

    TKMaxx sometimes have more expensive ones in at good prices. I'd agree with the above at the 15-30 mark I don't know that you'd get something that will work down to that temperature.

    Also depends if it needs to be something small so you can carry in a rucksack over a distance or if you'll be travelling by car as size-price also tends to be a factor.

    I think there are some good deals in Primark. I brought a jacket for a really cheap price. I guess they might have a sleeping bag for your budget.

    Else why don't you order online from any other country's website and request to ship to UK?

    I agree with you. I brought a trouser for 10 and that was crap.

    Not sure about buying a sleeping bag though. Not sure if they ahve it.

    That is right. Primark don't always have good quality products. But for the budget described in the thread, I could only think of Primark.
