I've seen quite a few modern army sleeping bags on sale on eBay. I've spent a couple of nights in the older down version wich was far from comfortable, admittedly it appeared old and well used, the top had about as much stuffing as a tea bag though........
Anyway...does anyone have any opinions about the modern ones, they're advertised as winter or arctic, go to all sorts of minus temperatures (yeah right) so I'm looking for some more objective opinions. I like the idea of the mesh pockets inside, they appear well shaped so presumably come in different sizes. I also like the central zip affair, looks like it'd open easier than a side zip.
whilst I'm asking, what's the deal with all the army surplus stuff for sale on eBay. Some of it's obvioualy from dealers having gone the proper route, but I'm guessing some of it's been issued and is being sold off on the QT? By the amount of desert camo stuff some of it has been issued recently. Does the army not keep track of all this gear?
Not so sure about the dessert camo that I saw advertised though..... :roll:
