"These bags are ideal for a wide range of adventures. They come complete with a stuff bag & compression spider & having the EPS is a great invention as you can increase the bag size when required i.e in the summer months, to help cool the bag so you can regulate your body heat and get a good nights sleep. Also if you wanted to climb inside the bag for a bit of privacy in order to change your clothes there is enough room to do this!"
