How will you fit? Take a look at our Sleeping Bag Fitting Guide for guidance.
Hydrophobic is a water repellent treatment that makes down less susceptible to humid conditions, staying lofted for longer and prolonging the overall lifespan of your down.
RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD
We use only RDS certified down; all our down is audited by a third party to ensure that it comes from birds who are not live-plucked, force-fed, or mistreated. That’s good to know.

Just completed the Cleveland way with 3 nights out in Hammocks. The weather was supposed to be warm but suddenly we had a cold snap (last week of October). Min night time temps were -1C. Slept in full kit with this bag and bivvi bag and we were fine. Nice and light and easy to pack for going fast and light. We did use bracken to pack between bag and hammock so, overall this bag with these adjustments did the job of the 400. I'm pleased and, the pack size more than compensates for the insulation value. (Remember its only a 2 season bag)
We used it we liked it
Wild camped out in less than sunny weather. Super piece of kit, but we pushed it to the limits. The bag is rated to NOT -2 -4 during the night but it still kept me going. packing light is always a balancing act. So did it do the job yes, but i am going for the Pipedream 400 next. Ps we were also in the Hunka which is also a super piece of kit.
Righty ho I didn't use it, it was Mrs Sansnomme who doesn't like the cold but she likes this bag but said it was too warm for summer so she took her jumper off last night when she used it in a wild camp. A result all round I feel.
It's well made, light, bouncy and packs down beautifully. It's basically half the weight of a synthetic bag it replaced, and warmer too. Well made with good materials, and lofts up very quickly once unpacked.
Constructive feedback: there is no zip baffle, not even an uninsulated one. For a three season bag, not fatal but would be nice as a minor tweak?
A great choice for lightweight summer bikepacking
Really pleased with this. My 1st Alpkit bag, its material feels just as nice as my significantly more expensive rab bag. Really roomy, i can fit my other bag inside this one to make a mega winter bag. It's quite minimalistic, but just right for 2 season, it lofts nicely too. Stuff sack is simple and efficient.
Light and small bag.
I purchased this bag for my partner, since her normal sleeping bag is much too heavy for light weight bike packing and hiking. The pipedream 200 is so small and light - it's a pleasure to pack it away.
This last weekend I had the chance to try it myself. I was camping in the Brecon Beacons and the temperature was around 3 at night (light frost, no ice). With a very heavy dew (so very moist air - which always feels a bit cooler I think. I was camping in a tent (Alpkit Ordos 2) rather than bivvy, and on a short inflatable mattress (also Alpkit). I am a warm sleeper.
At that temperature I was comfortable in thermals, no socks, no gloves and no hat. I didn't need the hood done up.
I'd recommend this bag for lightweight bike packing, kayaking, hiking etc where you are pretty confident the temperature will remain above freezing. You could make it work down another 5 degrees with a down jacket and warm socks, or perhaps with a bivvy sack inside the tent.
For reference I packed the Pipedream 200, the Ordos 2, the sleeping mat, a first aid kit, some freeze dried food, and a bowl comfortably into a 20l bar roll bag - with room to spare.
Nice bag with soft material but too baggy so that it does not retain heat and no shoulder baffle. I was cold at the stated temperatures whilst trekking in the Pyrenees. Good to about 12 C, I reckon.
