The Snugpak Softie Elite 3 sleeping bag is a mummy shape bag that can keep you warm in temperatures down to -10°C, with its unique EPS (Expander Panel System) giving the flexibility to control temperatures inside the bag.
While at first glance it may appear similar to a traditional sleeping bag, the Elite 3 sleeping bag employs the expander panel that can be unzipped to provide more space inside the bag.
This allows air to circulate inside the bag which helps reduce the temperature when you are in warmer temperatures.
When the temperatures drop again, simply zip up the panel and the bag instantly becomes a warmer environment to sleep in.
This system allows you to use the Softie Elite 3 in more diverse conditions as you can relax in the bag during the day and evenings without becoming too hot and then zip up for the cold wintry night.
The Paratex Micro outer fabric is windproof and water repellent and the inner Paratex Light & Reflectatherm add heat-retaining properties and breathability to wick moisture away from the inside of the bag to keep you comfortable overnight.
The unique Softie Premier insulation is able to retain heat even when wet and is washable.
The bag is a mummy-style bag which is tapered at the feet. This restricts airflow around your feet which helps to keep the inside of the bag warmer during the night.
Supplied with a compression stuff sack to allow easy transport the Elite 3 is a quality bag that is ideal for military, camping, bushcraft and outdoor enthusiasts.

Not what I expected, this bag is half the size of the issued bag, doesn't smell and comes with a proper compression bag. The amount of tech. in this bag looks amazing, can't wait to try it out. Ordered it late Friday received it Wednesday (today). Excellent service, lovely bag really happy with everything.
Being on the water (in a boat) in deepest autumn in the UK was freezing but the bag dealt with this remarkably well. I became warm immediately entering the bag; and the baffles and hood tie worked very well to insulate and keep the cold out. Excellent price, too, compared to these 'better known' premium priced branded bags.
Bought for some wild camping to use with a British military bivvy bag. Chosen mainly as I'm big and it's a bit wider and longer than some bags. Very pleased, warm, easy to stuff back into bag and seems well made. Used down to about 5 degrees, no mat, wearing a tight fitting light top. Much colder and I'd add a mat. Delivery fine.
Excellent service, quick delivery and a great bag!
However, I haven't had the chance to test the sleeping bag in 'real' winter conditions yet, so far I am impressed by the quality. The synthetic filling is 'loftier' and warmer than I expected, the seams are excellent, but as some reviews on the web highlighted, the zip has a tendency to catch the fabric of the bag. The expander panel is a very nice touch. Overall, very happy with both the product and the service of MilitaryKit.
Excellent service, and the bag is the best one I have had
