The award winning Planet 100 from Vango is a completely no-fuss, easy to take care of, 'pack it away and forget about it' sleeping bag which is perfect for long distance travellers and backpackers in warm climates. 

Starting with the insulation, Vango use a Insulite Superfine synthetic fabric to provide warmth down to around 8°C. This insulation provides enough warmth for travellers and backpackers in warm climates and packs down to only a fraction of it's original size. Not only this, but if the sleeping bag gets soaking wet, the insulation will still provide virtually the same amount of warmth. An insulated zip guard reduces the amount of heat lost through the zip, while drawcords around the head trap more heat in and create a snug little microclimate. 

Surrounding this insulation is a Ripstop polyester fabric which is highly breathable and packable, perfect for travelling in warm conditions. Entry into the sleeping bag is via a zip which runs the entire way down the bag in an 'L' shape; this means you can fully ventilate and turn the Planet into a blanket in particularly humid conditions. If you happen to be using the Planet in insect-prone areas, a built in mozzie guard allows you to sleep comfortably. Another brilliant feature of the Planet is Vango's Shield technology. This coating is applied to the entire bag and repels insects for the life of the bag. Not only this, but it also prevents growth of odour-causing bacteria and mould. 

As if this brillint bag didn't offer you enough for your money, the stuffsack is reversible and includes a soft brushed fleece inner to transform it into a pillow; simply turn the stuffsack inside out, stuff with clothes and you're good to go for the night.

Care & Advice

How warm a sleeping bag do you really need? We’ve tried to help you by grouping our sleeping bags by their recognised comfort ratings. These are the ratings supplied by the brands that indicate the temperature at which you will remain comfortable whilst sleeping on a good insulated sleep mat. After all, comfortable is what you want to be when it’s cold and wet outside and you’re all tucked up in your nice warm sleeping bag.

We always recommend that you choose your bag according to the coldest conditions you will experience; you can always unzip a bag if it is too warm, but trying to sleep when you’re too cold is just miserable. Bear in mind that that we are all individuals and we all feel the cold differently, and that our own resistance will fluctuate depending a whole load of factors including how much we have eaten, whether we have consumed alcohol, whether we need a wee or what kind of mood we are in!

Sleeping bags do not generate heat they only trap the heat we produce so it is vital that you get into your bag when you are giving off warmth, don’t go to bed when you are cold, have a hot meal or a hot drink or do some brisk exercise to get you nicely warmed up.

Traditionally sleeping bag manufacturers provided their own temperature ratings based on their experience, the products intended end use and the perceived environment. But each brand tested their bags in different ways and it was hard to find a fair comparison between models. So, in 2005 a European standard for sleeping bag temperature ratings, EN 13537, was introduced to give consumers a comparable guide to sleeping bag performance across a range of brands and models. The ratings have four different temperature ratings to give you an indication of the bags performance.

Upper limit: This is the highest temperature at which an average male should experience a comfortable night’s sleep.

Comfort: This is the temperature at which an average female should experience a comfortable night’s sleep. On average women sleep colder than men so this rating is some degrees above the ‘comfort lower limit’ for a man.

Comfort lower limit:  This is the lowest temperature at which an average male should experience a comfortable night’s sleep whilst lying in a curled-up body position. This used to be known as the comfort rating.

Extreme: This is a survival rating where the user is likely to suffer health damage such as Hypothermia. It should be treated with the utmost caution and not be relied on for general use.

However, the EN 13537 European Standard does not apply to down filled sleeping bags with a fill weight of more than 800g; for those bags you will have to rely on the manufacturer's experience and technical expertise, which is often more accurate!

Most reputable brands still use their own rating system alongside EN 13537, for instance the M.E “Good Night’s Sleep” and Rab’s “Sleep Limit”. These ratings are often the most accurate guide to the overall performance of a bag being used by an average outdoor enthusiast. They are based on years of expedition heritage, field trials, technological experience, and constant feedback.

But please bear in mind that all ratings are only a guide and, as mentioned earlier, there are a huge range of factors that can affect your comfort, if you are just not sure it is always wise to go for a warmer model.

The biggest difference you can make to your overall comfort is to use an efficiently insulated sleeping mat. Once you get inside your sleeping bag you instantly compress all the filling beneath you, greatly reducing its efficiency. The use of a quality sleep mat will ensure you are properly insulated from the cold ground and you will of course be a lot more comfortable. Your sleeping bag is only as good as the mat that’s beneath it; we recommend EXPED, ThermaRest or Multimat sleeping mats for comfort and insulation.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
