Sleeping bags designed for anglers can be a right pain to cart about. Generally speaking, with warmth and comfort comes size and bulk. However, these two new Chillout bags (in standard and ‘giant’ sizes) from TFG aren’t going to break your back or your piggy bank.
We’ve had the giant version strapped securely to an extra-wide bedchair for a few nights now and it’s a great performer. The fleece inner is super comfortable and the straps and hooks keep the bag safely in place.
Zips are a major factor on angling sleeping bags and the Chillout range has full-length ones on each side, as you would expect. Getting the balance between a non-slip zip and on that's easy to open when you get a run is a tightrope, and these bags are probably just slightly too easy to accidentally open when moving about, but that’s a minor criticism on a product at this price.
