    Forgive me if I don’t get it – sleeping bag technology is simples – generally the more bulk they have when deployed the warmer they are – which generally means the warmer they are the more the packed bulk – marginal gains in packed bulk can be made by paying more – if the sleeping bag wholly fills the pannier is it the bag that is too big or the pannier is too small?

    I was in Aldi this morning, they are selling a mostly-down sleeping back in the fishing equipment promotion that looks to pack down pretty small. Can't comment on its warmth or durability, as I don't own one. £40, I think it was. Might be good for summer touring.

    Have the impression that, yes, summer only. Not good value I think unless it can be found still further reduced. Must get round to wrestling/measuring my Mountain Equipment.
