As part of their Summer Lightning series of down clothing and sleeping bags, PH Designs have included what surely has to be the very lightest down sleeping bag in the world – the Elite Racer. I tested one out in the mountains of Snowdonia recently and couldn’t believe the small packed size, weight, and warmth. Yes, this is a bag for summer lightweight trips, and it’s great for that. I’ll be using mine again tomorrow night, and can’t wait to feel the luxurious warmth from this superb bit of kit.

Elite Runner Bag 1

The Elite Racer features:

  • Superlight 10X fabric inner and outer
  • Rare 950 fillpower European goose down.
  • Stitch through seams for lightness
  • Mummy hood to fit close around the head
  • Comfortable at 12C

Priced at £179 it’s an absolute must for any mountain marathoner. The only downside is, you have to order before the end of June, so only 1 more day to go folks!
