Greek "Pattern 58" Sleeping Bag, Surplus

Purchasing old school Greek army sleeping bags for a relatively high price sounded like a bit of a gamble at first. But what do you know, this actually is the perfect "fire and forget" all-in-one package for your three-season needs. (If you can bear the pack size). Unissued, two lengths, and wide enough that you don't have to compress yourself when sleeping in this. You can fit a damn walrus inside.

Features

Those lovely souls who are into military sleeping bags will immediately recognize this as a copy of the British Pattern 58 down sleeping bag, with some small differences. Instead of listing these, we'll just drop the features for you in one boring list:

  • "Fat mummy"-shaped bag, completely renegade when put against modern standards. Means it's rather wide, which makes it perfect for those of us who feel confined in most other sleeping bags.
  • Cute little hood.
  • Smooth zipper.
  • Polyester filling; it's likely a three-season bag.
  • Rubberized nether region will keep your arse dry even if you roll off the sleeping pad.
  • Packs up inside its fixed compression bag. The compression bag also works as a pillow when you stuff it up.
  • Comes with a separate liner sheet to reduce the need for washing. The sheet is shiny and not very breathable.
  • Snap fasteners make packing easier but the so-called compression straps make very few things easier.

Use

Inside the bag, you’ll find a quick user guide in Greek. Worry not if your Greek is a bit rusty. We spend a lot of time and money to translate it for you. They tell you not to crawl inside wearing muddy crap and advise to keep your head outside. You should also keep the zipper parts together or it doesn’t work.

Packing is easy. Fold the bag in two lengthwise, close the snap fasteners, and roll as tightly as you can from the foot end upward. Then shove the roll into the integrated compression bag. Then tighten the “compression” straps as well as possible.

Materials and care

The bag is made from polyester in and out. If you need to wash it, you can do it in the machine at 40 degrees Celsius (104 F). However, we recommend dry cleaning or spot cleaning with a brush, rag, and soap. Every thorough wash decreases the temperature rating. Hang dry.

In theory, you don't have to wash this at all if you always use the liner sheet and wash it instead.

We finally got those MANLY sizes, perkele!

These come in two sizes, and the centimeters refer to the user’s maximum height. However, you can be a bit taller than this. We added the freedom units in the chart below in case you don’t speak metric. The shoulder width is fucking wide, which is very rare for milsurp. These might be officer models. So, finally we have those Manly Sizes that people want. If you have been at home during supper time, like to roll around, or suffer from claustrophobia, this is your bag! Also suitable for those that hike with their dog and use them as radiators and just married couples.

170 cm

  • Weight: 2,570 g (5.7 lbs)
  • User’s maximum height: 170 cm (5’7”)
  • Shoulder width: 83 cm (32.7”)
  • Packed size: n. 45 x 28 cm (17.7” x 11”)

190 cm

  • Weight: 2,990 g (6.6 lbs)
  • User’s maximum height: 190 cm (6’3”).
  • Shoulder width: 95 cm (37.4”) (yes, really)
  • Packed size: c. 48 x 28 cm (18.9” x 11”)

Condition

Totally unissued Greek army stuff. Nobody has slept with them. Apparently, it never got so cold in there for them to find any use for such a bag. Made in China.

Koemakuu 1: Olohuone 22 Celcius-astetta. Ostamani pussin koko 190cm. Itse koehenkilönä 175cm/130kg. Nappasin heti pois keinokuituisen (polyester) sisäpussin koska se tulisi muuten hikoiluttamaan liikaa vs. suojaamaan pussin sisäosia lialta. Huomasin että sehän toimii KKK-huppuineen hätäsadeviittana. Lisäksi siitä saa hätätarpin kreikkalaissotilas kierättämällä toisen liepeen alleen tuulta vasten ja loput jää suojaamaan sateelta. Silti se lensi varustehyllylle, ja joka vaeltajalla pitäisi olla parempi sadeviitta aina matkassa, tarpista puhumattakaan. Itse pussin kuivapaino on lähes 3000g joka on tämän suurin miinus suuren pakkauskoon ohella. Hyvän oloinen vetoketju plussaa, sen vaan näkee kun on laadukas. Miten paljon pakkasta kestää, pitää selvittää mutta uskon että kolmen vuodenajan ++ pussi kuten myyntitekstissä luvattiin. Joku parempi kompressiopussi pitää kyllä keksiä, tuo makuupussi on niin möhkäleinen iso. Omat "kompressioremmit" ei oo mistään kotoisin. Kesäaikaan ehkä turha kantaa mukana kun 2kg kevyempikin riittäisi. Ja tilaa on oikeasti kahdelle hoikalle rakastavaiselle tai isolle miehelle joka halaa kenkiään ja kaasupatruunoitaan. En tiedä mitä se Nyky-Kreikkalainen filosofia tän pussin suhteen on ollut, mutta veikkaan että märkä ja lämmin on parempi kuin märkä ja hypoterminen joten kaikkine varusteineen pussiin hytisemään, olet aamulla toimintakykyinen toisin kuin paleltuneet kaverisi. No, käyttämätöntä kamaa 2007 vuodelta ja Kiina valmistusmaa.
