Snugpak Softie 3 Merlin Sleeping Bag
The Snugpak Softie Merlin 3 Sleeping Bag is a tried and tested favourite around the world. An international bestseller, and brand leader the Softie Merlin 3 has been found to be used in all sorts of climate from the Australian Outback to the foothills of the mighty Himalayas.
The Softie Merlin 3 is the smallest and lightest in the Softie Sleeping Bag range and yet punches well above its weight. 'Reflectatherm' technology uses a metallised yet breathable barrier in order to reflect heat back at the user, adding at least 15% additional warmth, and allowing for far greater performance than would otherwise be expected.
Other features include zip baffle, reinforced foot, compression sack, the ability to zip with another Softie Sleeping bag, and a tailored 'mummy' style.

A left-handed sleeping bag has the zip on the left when the user is in the bag and lying on their back. Most right-handed people therefore find a left-handed bag easier to unzip when inside the bag.
All Snugpak sleeping bags are supplied together with a compression stuff sack. The pack size dimensions where shown for each sleeping bag are for the fully compressed size, which involves compacting the bag itself as it is fed into the stuff sack and then using the compression straps and some physical exertion to reach the minimum size.
Snugpak do not recommend using a top loader washing machine with agitator because the agitator may damage the fabric or insulation. A front loading washing machine or hand washing is considered appropriate for washing Snugpak products.
Snugpak recommend that you wash any of their products on a LOW temperature setting with non-bio liquid detergent and no fabric conditioner.
Drying Snugpak products on a washing line is recommended. They can be tumble dried but only on a LOW setting otherwise the fabric may melt.
