If you are heading off on a round the world trip you'll be sleeping in lots of different places so a sleeping bag is a good idea. However they can take up a hell of a lot of room in your backpack. To solve this Solotrekk have developed one of the smallest sleeping bags available in the UK. Weighing just 575g (Exc stuff sack) and shrinking down to a teeny 15 x 15cm you will hardly notice this in your gear. It has a 1-2 season rating and a comfort temperature of 16 degrees making it ideal for travellers backpacking in warmer climates. Of course if you combine it with a liner and some base layers it will handle colder temperatures.
What we love about this bag is its versatility – it can be fully zipped open to use a a blanket on a long haul flight or even a picnic rug. Its thin enough to use as a liner in a hostel or even to line a bigger sleeping bag. The high quality compression sack makes shrinking it down nice and easy. At 190 x 75cm in size it will comfortably fit the majority of travellers and being rectangular in shape it doesn't have the restricted feeling of mummy designs.
