Unlike everyone else, the British army just could not make a sleeping bag deal with the Teutonic devil, which is Carinthia. So they did the next best thing and copied the Tropical bag and Defence 4 bag, which is this one, and called it the Modular Sleeping Bag System. So here's some proud English vision for sale!

  • A three-season bag
  • Durable and dependable
  • Weight about two kilograms, depending on the size
  • Part of a modular system

The most useful part of the British modular sleeping bag system is this three-season bag. What separates this military bag from many civilian ones is more bulk, stronger materials and a way cheaper price, being army surplus.

The bag is almost a direct copy of the Carinthia Defence 4 sleeping bag. There are not many British specialities in this one, except the tried and true mesh pockets for valuables and such. The colour is green, and every component high quality stuff. The opening can be adjusted and the bag has hook-n-loop tabs along the main zipper. On the inside there are attachment points for a liner bag, Carinthia's model will fit.

Materials and temperature rating

Made of strong nylon material, with hollowfiber padding sandwiched on the inside. The comfort rating of this bag when new would be about -10 degrees Celsius. No accurate info, though.

This bag is a part of a modular system: if one were to put the light summer bag inside this, the result would be a four-season bag.

Care

Machine wash in 40 degrees Celsius if you absolutely have to. Hang dry. Washing sleeping bags should be avoided unless necessary.

The British army tells us these bags can be washed 20 times until their temperature ratings drop too excessively. These haven't been washed many times, hardly even once.

Size info

Available in two sizes according to user's recommeded height. Even if you'd be a few cm taller, you should still fit inside. For those using the obsolete imperial system: if you're up to 6 ft tall, pick Medium. If taller, pick Large.

Although a shorter person can sleep inside a too large bag, there will be some extra room in the feet to be heated up, along with unnecessary bulk.

The following measurements are taken from the bag itself:

  • Medium: length 190 cm, shoulder width 75 cm, weight about 2000 g
  • Large: length 205 cm, shoulder width 80 cm, weight about 2250 g

Condition

Used, sometimes a bit seedy around the head but intact. We recommend washing the bag before use if you feel like it. Apparently these are made by FECSA, a Spanish company that also made sleeping bags for the Dutch army at least.

Hyvä pussi. Nappasin uutena ebaysta sopuhintaan. Painoa hieman enemmän kuin originaali Defence 4:ssa mutta muuten toimii ihan samallatavoin.

Nice condition, nice quality, good value for the money. Not suitable for winter use by itself, but few sleeping bags are.
