New good quality sleeping bags cost a lot. Used armeijan makuupussit cost relatively very little, but there's a few things you'll need to know. Let's go through these a bit, but first we'll explain the playing field, in other words what you can expect from a bag bought from us.
This article is about used military sleeping bags bought from Varusteleka. When you buy a pre-used bag from us, you'll get a clean, intact bag. If there's anything worth mentioning about the bag, it can be found from the product description. Usually these bags are washed before they reach us, and so far we haven't found any bananas or mould kingdoms inside.
This applies for Varusteleka only, we take no responsibility of used bags sold by other vendors.
The most notable thing about used bags is the fact that we have no knowledge of its history, usage and washing. Every wash reduces the warmth a bit, and who knows in what kind of compressed cubes the bags have been stored in or not. Generally we get pretty clean bags and if there's any lemons, we do sort them out.
In Great Nations unlike Finland they probably issue a brand new sleeping bag for each soldier at the start of the service or tour. Then the soldier uses this bag until the tour ends, and returns it to the depot. In the depot they wash the bag and sell it off to the world. Not too bad.
Military sleeping bags are often lambasted on their bulk and weight compared to warmth they provide. While this is sort of true when compared to the latest of the late in civilian sleeping bag world, you might want to stop and think before shelling out hundreds and hundreds of bucks to gain some minute advantages. You smell it too? The sweet odour of used army surplus is waiting for you!

If you think you can live with the bulk compared to the latest options in the civilian market, go for the surplus option. People have used army surplus sleeping bags forever and they just work, time after time. Especially those who are not seeking to conquer the Alps will be quite happy with them, although durabilitywise the army bags can usually conquer anything.
