    Still deliberating over which Winter bag to go for!
    Does anyone have any experience of having used any of the below and any views on them?

    1) Mountain Hardwear Lamina 0
    2) Alpkit Alpine Dream 700/900
    3) Marmot Never Summer

    Hi Mark i have not used any of those,but for the last 4years i have used PHD that is the original Peter Hutchinson.You can specify the weight of fill and the covering and i have used thelightest Pamir of his down to -5c,in fact i use it all the year round.My wife has the lightest RAB QUANTUM and finds that excellent[but you cannot specify weight and coveretc].
    I also use a Macpac middle to top of the range for serious ski touring cold -15 to -40.
    We used to have a Mountain Equipment Everest bags,they were extremely bulky and not as adaptable as the above three.
    PHD has own website and is in Stalybridge,not quite gods own county yorkshire.Have a good christmas and i wish you a snowy and cold new year.

    In addition to Rab, Marmot Lithium or Helium and bags from Western Mountaneering have good reputations (and admittedly prices).
