    They're a decent mid budget company from my home county, they produce a lot of stuff for our military as well as civvie kit.

    The Elite bags are amazing, especially the 4. Their Softie range are compact and very popular over here.

    They've produced a synthetic underquilt, top quilt and coccoon system over the last few years in collaboration with one of my pals, all good gear but I've not tried the TQ myself.

    Some say the sizes are quite snug But I'm a skinny guy so can't really comment on that They sell zip-in expander panels for a number of their bags if you need the extra room.

    You can't go wrong with a snugpak sleeping bag, i have used them all over the world. Most of the guys in my unit use them as well. i have also got a snugpak jacket which is great as well.

    Got the TQ and UQ and it works great. Had it down to minus 3*c and still had a bit more to go.
    Excellent for a cheaper quilt system just a bit bulky.

    I had a Snugpak Softie 9 Hawk for a few years in the infantry. It did the job, but I don't trust the temp rating of -10 on it. I was fairly chilly at around -5, but I was only in my underwear, no thermals. I also found the bag very tight fitting (i'm 6'1 and around 220lbs).

    It's lightweight, but after my experiences that's about the only real plus. And it's well-made, of course.

    I now have a marmot trestles 15f long, which is a pound and a half more, but roomier, a bit longer, much better hood, was only $60, and it feels more like a comforter than a thin sleeping bag (which I like).

    The price for most Snugpak stuff is quite high, but it's worth it for the right people. For my military use it was a great bag, but for any civilian use i'd much rather use a civilian bag.
