If you’ve ever spent a long night shivering on your bedchair, trying and failing to sleep, then you’ll know that a sub-zero night on the bank has its own special space reserved in hell. No night has felt longer than one spent desperately tired but unable to sleep – that’s not the mention the dampener that it can put on the following day’s fishing! This is why investing in proper, high quality sleeping equipment is absolutely vital, as it can make all the difference to your enjoyment (and success) on the bank. Advanta is a brand that understands that the dedicated carp angler doesn’t want to let the prospect of a cold night stop them from enjoying the challenge of winter angling, which is why the brand has manufactured this, the Advanta Discovery CX5 Five Season Sleeping Bag.
The first think you’ll notice about this sleeping bag is its luxurious peachskin cotton outer shell. This is ultra-soft to the touch, so you can enjoy comfort on the bank at all times. You’ll notice that the bottom section of this bag has been lined with nylon fabric. This is a ‘wellie wipe’ section and it has been designed to allow you to lounge on your bedchair with your boots or waders on – ready to respond to your bite alarm the second it screams without having to worry about pulling on your boots. The top inner section of the sleeping bag has been lined with a soft fleece material. This is ultra insulating and it helps to prevent heat escape out of the large top opening of your bivvy, tapping your body heat close to you. The remaining inner lining of the bivvy is manufactured from a quilted nylon material, ensuring that you can twist and turn in your sleep without getting tangled in your sleeping bag.
The entire Advanta Discovery CX5 Five Season Sleeping Bag benefits from a generous holofil insulation. This is a fibrous insulation material which creates lots of pockets of air, trapping your body heat and preventing the ingress of chill draughts. Draughts are further prevented from entering the bag thanks to seven different excluder skirts and a huge fleece baffle. These all ensure that you can be toasty warm in your sleeping bag throughout the night and you never need to worry that you’ll be woken by a blast of cold air.
The head and foot of the sleeping bag have both been fitted with an elasticated anti-twist fixing. These are designed to be attached to the bedchair and they allow you to move and turn in your sleep as normal, without getting tangled in the material of your sleeping bag. Two additional bedchair straps also prevent twist and they allow you to store your sleeping bag on your bedchair year-round, ready for use when you need it. The Advanta Discovery CX5 Five Season Sleeping Bag will fit all standard sized bed chairs, as well as most wide bedchairs, and, with dimensions of 200cm x 90cm, it will comfortably accommodate even the most robust angler.
The Advanta Discovery CX5 Five Season Sleeping Bag is supplied in its own nylon stash bag. This not only keeps the bag clean in storage but it also ensures that it is easy to transport. The bag weighs in at a mere 3.6kg, so you’ll hardly feel its weight on your barrow as you head to and from the bank.
If you’re looking for a top-quality sleeping bag which has been designed to ensure that you can enjoy a warm and comfortable night’s sleep in even the coldest conditions then you need look no further.
