In recent years, Wildcraft emerges as a biggest brand in travel & sports accessories. Wildcraft establish by a group of friends in 2008 and understanding the needs of different outdoor and adventure activities, they started to produce durable, reliable and functional products.
I’m also a big fan of Wildcraft brand and already have a Daily laptop Backpack, Hiking tee, Bomber Jacket and sleeping bag. Today I’m going to review Wildcraft Lite 2014 Sleeping Bag.
NOTE: I lost the MicroSD card, so unfortunately don’t have the pics of the open sleeping bag. In next hiking, I’ll try to bring those pics. Sorry!
Wildcraft Lite 2014 weight is just 970g, when not in use you can roll and compress the sleeping bag in a compression strap. After the compression dimension of the Sleeping bag is just 25 x 20 cm. All these make the sleeping bag easy to carry in your backpack or even in your truffle bag.
The Wildcraft Lite sleeping bag is designed to withstand 10ºC. The comfort level is very good, even in open sky.
Wildcraft mention the risk of using the bag in temperature below the 10ºC but it depends on your condition. If you’re in windy condition then you may need extra cover inside your sleeping bag. Otherwise, you’ll be fine.
If you’ve an average body build then there is enough space inside so that you can roll. The Ergonomically designed, keeping in mind the heat lost areas i.e knees, feet and shoulders.
The Sleeping bag is made up of Polyester shell and lining which added comfort and gives you proper sleep. But there is no sleeping pad on the bottom of the bed so may feel uncomfortable in rugged area. But again, it’s not a big issue as hiker know which place to choose for sleeping. Washing is very easy and the material quickly dry.
The Wildcraft Lite 2014 Sleeping Bag is an awesome sleeping bag for your backpack. It’s light, durable and keep you warm in the cold night. The sleeping bag is priced at Rs. 2495. Price is slightly higher as compared to Quencha brand, but as I mentioned I love the Wildcraft products so bought this.
