Reviews:

Construction: 8/10

Millet Hiker Reg is a sleeping bag designed well. We regret the choice of duck feather to the detriment of the quill pen. If this provides a better price, the product loses technicality. Millet wanted to place the comfort temperature at 0 ° C. Result: a compression volume and a great weight to a bag down (1540 g).

Thermicity: 8/10

This is the bag that has the best thermal capacity of the test. A 3 ° C: no coldness without use of the collar.

Praticabilité: 8/10

Sarcophagus combinable with two-way zip to use the bag as a blanket. Compartment for feet for light heat gain. Inside pocket with velcro closure (zip would be more convenient because objects can fall into the bag).Collar with drawstring (a bit long).

Millet Hiker Reg is a homogeneous good quality bag for use in 3 seasons that it lacks a little technical to be among the best. Millet chose to play the card of quality / price at the expense of weight or volume.
