Initial trip done with my new Traveller 1 sleeping bag and very happy. First night out was colder and damper than anticipated but bag performed well. It appears to be well made, extremely packable and light - just remember it is a lightweight bag and take a few extra clothes to wear at night if you're intending to push its temperature limits.
I've bought a few items from ground effect and am happy with them all. Quick delivery and great instructions for returns (not that I have returned anything).
I recently took my 8 yr old granddaughter on her first overnight tramp up to Wiatawheta Hut. She had to carry all her own stuff. The super light Traveller 1 was an incentive and made all the difference. Of course this granny wants it back when I next go to my favourite tramping spots!
Impressed with how this packs down to nothing, yet to try in cooler conditions but so far its been fantastic
This sleeping bag is everything you should expect if you've done a bit of research. It is very lightweight and packs down really small - you'll be the envy of all your companions who have bulkier gear. But of course this means that it doesn't have a great deal of down in it and so isn't suitable for cold nights. It doesn't have many of the usual sleeping bag features, I guess to save on weight (eg. no hood, no **** collar, no zip across the foot (a drawcord closure instead), and nothing fancy about how the down panels are arranged. If you are bikepacking and it is colder, then you can extend the comfort range of the bag by sleeping with your evening clothes on. I would have compromised a bit of weight and bulk for a bag which provided a bigger temperature range, but didn't find something suitable. I've only used it for one trip so far - the nights were warm and I was in huts so it was perfect!
