Sleeping Bag field test

I tested the sleeping bag Therm-A-Rest Antares HD trek in different configurations: tent and shelter in cold and wet weather, Iceland and Taiwan. Here is my opinion after 7 nights of use.

Unpacking

Upon receipt of the sleeping bag, I am pleased to see that it comes with a compression bag and a storage bag. When we know the importance of not letting the compressed sleeping bag all the time in her bag, it is always nice.

This is a sleeping bag down (90% down / 10% feather) enjoying an American cuin of 750+ or ​​650+ equivalence for a European cuin (this difference is due to the method of calculation).

Less pleasant, I see that the sleeping bag is heavier than 100 g compared to the weight recorded. I weighed 990 grams regular version. Its volume is 7.8 liters, which will fit nicely into the bottom of a backpack of 40 liters or more.

The appearance of the fabric is somewhat rougher than another sleeping bag. I wonder if it is not linked to water-repellent treatment.

Another big feature of the model, it can hold on to a mattress using SynergyLink ™ connectors.
