British Army 58 Pattern Sleeping Bags Grade 1 (Used)

British Army 58 Pattern Sleeping Bags Grade 1 (Used)

Issued from 1958 up to the 90s, this was the definitive sleeping bag for sleeping outdoors, with a military waterproof base and roll up hood attached.The 58 pattern sleeping bag is a classic. This genuine military issue bag definitely deserves its reputation for comfort and warmth. Tried and tested in the army by troops, it's great for fishing, hiking, festivals and general camping trips especially in cold conditions. This bag is very versatile due to the waterproof bottom which is like a built-in groundsheet. It can be used conventionally inside a tent, or can be slept in directly on the ground in summer nights with or without the use of bashas, tarpaulin and/or other shelters. It tips the scales at above average weight these days at 2.5kg but the small sacrifice of pack size and weight is easily made up for in comfort and warmth. Having said that, it will still fit inside a decent sized rucksack.
