TEMPERATURE SUITABILITY. Despite being issued to British troops for use in extremely cold conditions, the term 'arctic' does not mean the bag is sufficient on its own for use in extreme cold. However, used in combination with a shelter, bivvy bag or wind-shield this bag will provide sufficient protection down to approximately -5 degrees Centigrade. So please plan any intended usage carefully.

This is a genuine army issue sleeping bag so you can be sure that it is built to last and designed to do the job at hand. If you have any questions about this item please email for expert friendly advice.

Did you know? This design of sleeping bag is called a mummy bag. This is because the design tapers at the bottom to reduce the overall weight and size of the item. Another benefit is that the zip does not extend all the way down to the feet. The feet are a major source of heat loss so heat retention is improved when there is no zip for the warmth to escape.
