British modular sleeping bag liner, surplus
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 and called it the Modular Sleeping Bag System. This is the liner for the thicker, Medium weight bag.
The bag is almost a direct copy of the Carinthia' sleeping bag liner. Most notable differences are the greener colour and slightly different tie-cord points.
Fits straight up inside the Medium weight, or "Defence 4" sleeping bag of the British army. Of course by altering the places of the tie cords this can be fitted inside others as well. The tie cords are actually pretty close to match the Carinthia's bags.
Made of polycotton, but no exact data on this.
Machine wash in 40 degrees Celsius. Hang dry. Using and washing this instead of the sleeping bag keeps the sleeping bag in better shape.
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 550 g
- Large: length 205 cm, shoulder width 80 cm, weight about 620 g
Used and washed before discharged from service. Apparently these are made by FECSA, a Spanish company that also made sleeping bags for the Dutch army at least.
