SkyeHigh 700 down sleeping bag
SkyeHigh is the workhorse of our sleeping bag range. It will see you comfortably through a few weeks camping and still be light enough to drag along on an extended trip.
High fill power down in a comfortably spacious design makes the SkyeHigh our most versatile bag. The 700 g of 650 IDFB fill power 90/10 Chinese duck down means that SkyeHigh 700 will keep you warm and keep the bag light.
The excellent compressibility of this down means you can squash the SkyeHigh to fit in your rucksack. Box wall baffle construction gives SkyeHigh 700 increased thermal insulation. Trapezoid side baffles eliminates potential heat loss and prevents down migrating from front to back - something to do with heading south for warmer climes.
Now imagine you are trudging up a relentless incline, perhaps Mt. Kilimanjaro, the views are stunning. Perhaps there is a giraffe in the distance grazing on an acacia tree. You know the temp will drop when the sun goes down and you can’t help but grin contentedly (smugly) knowing that your SkyeHigh will keep you cosy and comfortable all night long!

How will you fit? Our guide is based on the user wearing thin base layers.
Spacious: 5ft3 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 100 cm. The bag will be perfectly useable but you will have space within the bag. For this reason it will not be as thermally efficient as an optimum fit but it will be comfortable and you will easily be able to wear extra layers.
Optimum: 5ft11 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 124 cm. At this size you are the ideal candidate for this bag. You should be able to easily arrange yourself in the bag, and still have the space to wear an additional down jacket if necessary.
Tight: 6ft1 tall or you have a shoulder circumference of around 128 cm. At this size you will start to compress the down and reduce the thermal efficiency of the bag, especially in the foot section and have limited movement around your shoulders when the zip is full closed. You should still be able to take your socks off, but might struggle to take off a top layer without undoing the zip.
SkyeHigh 700 is a great choice for trips where weight is an issue but also an ideal option for long trips where comfort is crucial. SkyeHigh is more spacious than PipeDream but uses the same high quality super-soft ripstop polyester. Because these fabrics are fully down-proof we do not need to use a secondary facing layer that would otherwise add additional weight for no performance gain. Down is a natural material and although it is sorted there will be a proportion of slightly darker down clusters that will create a slight mottled effect on some of our lighter coloured face fabrics. SkyeHigh is a good option for those with broad shoulders who will find PipeDream too narrow. The draft tube follows the entire length of the zip thus reducing the possibility of heat loss through the zip.

Great all rounder sleeping bag
Bought this as an all-rounder I could use throughout the year. Used it in February in the Cheviots where my water bottle froze inside my tent and I slept very comfortably.
It's been exposed to light rainfall when the tent was open and seemed to shrug it off.
It's also proved comfortable and suitable for warmer weather and lowland/ valley camping. It compresses really well and also came with a storage sack. Seems a very good product.
Great quality and packs down small.
Great bag, quality seems really good. The down lofts fantastically once its had a few minutes out the compression sack. Would recommend.
