Long Term Test
Around a year ago, the UKCA team received a sample of the then new Cotswold Aquarius Camo Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover & Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining. Over this period of time we have been using these products in an angling environment to see how well they performed together. Read on as we talk you through what these products have to offer you the angler.
Camo Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover
This 100% waterproof bedchair cover measures in at 1.967m long x 1.22m in width (77 inches x 48 inches). The outer skin is manufactured from the incredibly popular Woodland Camouflage material (DPM).On the internal face you have a carp green, quilted lining with cross stitching to give it a quality finish. to keep the sleeping bag cover in position you have four fully adjustable leg attachment straps, with clip lock fastenings. Once these are in place, this very well made product fits a standard bedchair perfectly.
On the underside you also have numerous metal clips located around the outer edge of the sleeping bag cover. These are in place for you to attached the Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining (sold separately). To finish the package off you also get a matching camo stuff bag for ease of transportation or you can simply leave it permanently attached to your bedchair for ease of carriage to and from your swim.
Note – Used on it’s own, the Camo Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover is ideal for those warm, sticky summer nights when a sleeping bag is just too much but you still need protection from early morning mists. If you add the Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining, it takes it to another level completely.
Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining
This additional layer to the Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover is manufactured from a deep pile fleece material that offers increased heat retention and excellent comfort. It attached itself to the cover via metal clips placed around the outer edge. Once these are all attached, you can fish an over-nighter underneath it even in late autumn. This combination makes the ideal one night session sleeping bag when the temperatures are still above freezing.
After using the Camo Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover & Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining for nearly a year, the UKCA team can now give these well thought out products the thumbs up!! The Breathable Quilted Sleeping Bag Cover is easy to fit, keep clean and in perfect working order. Once the Clip In Thermal Fleece Lining is fitted, not only is your bedchair fully protected but you also have a very warm cover that is more than suitable for over night sessions during the milder months of the year.
