Terra nova

Daniel Neilson braves the cold to test some of the warmest sleeping bags on the market. On test Terra Nova Elite 550 sleeping bag

This new bag from Terra Nova is certainly light at 1220g, but the comfort limit here is -3°C making it a three-season bag, so slightly outside this test criteria. There’s a comfortable inner. There’s also an internal baffle that tied quite high – above the shoulder – but it was uncomfortable when pulled tight as the cord was pulled against the skin. Best to leave it loose. The hood was easy to tighten. For a three-season bag, it’s a good price and fairly light.
