PD800 TGO Best buy and TGO Recommended
By Kenny Stocker | 23, Nov, 2011
TGO gear reviewer Chris Townsend gives our PipeDream 800 down sleeping bag the TGO Best Buy and TGO Recommended seals of approval in his Winter Down Sleeping Bags review in the December edition of TGO magazine.
The PipeDream was up against 14 other top winter sleeping bags. We are thrilled our PD800 gets best buy, and although our next delivery of PipeDreams in Q1 of 2012 is likely to see a price increase, we are pretty sure we can still live up to that accolade. The PHD Hispar 500 gets lightest in test.. a jaw dropping 251g lighter than the PipeDream with a difference in price of £239 at time of print. (Note: listed price on the PHD site is now £477 rather than the £419 listed in the review). Out of the other 13 bags in the review just 2 were lighter than the PD800.. the Western Mountaineering Apache MF (226g lighter, £195 more expensive) and the Yeti VIB 800 (7g lighter, £270 more expensive).
Obviously there is much more to choosing a bag than price and weight, so visit The Great Outdoors website to see where you can get hold of your copy and sweat over fill weights, comfort ratings and weight to loft ratios.
