Good sleeping bag recommendations?

Hi there, I'm looking for recommendations for sleeping bags.

Firstly, I need one to replace mine which is over 20 years old and has unsurprisingly lost much of its oomph. I get seriously cold at night so I think I need one that has a comfort rating of a fairly low temperature (10 degrees won't cut it). My current one is an envelope one and it never feels wide enough round the legs- I always end up tied up in knots. Weirdly, I wonder if a mummy bag will overcome this - do they move with your legs, so to speak? If it could be a stupidly girly colour into the bargain - flashes of pink, purple etc, that would be a bonus.

Secondly, DD2 has grown out of her child sized one and I guess we need to buy her an adult sleeping bag (she's 11, around 140cm tall). She doesn't feel the cold so much as I do and says she wants a traditional style one. She likes yellow and green.

Finally, I realise that a tenner from Asda probably won't do it, but I'd rather not spend £££££.

Anyone got a bag they can recommend?

the basic ones from decathlon are good. comfy and wash well. didn't get cold when it was 8 degrees at night.

I recently bought a Vango Nitestar (purple!) following a recommendation on here from Wherethewildthingsare. Its a 3 season bag so hopefully will be warm enough. Not given it its first outing though so can't recommed it totally but it was comfy when I got in it! And it is a very pretty colour. I got the envelope style as I find the mummy ones too restrictive but they do plenty of both styles

Hey musicposy <waves> How are your doggies and are they coming camping too? Rudy has his own sleeping bag blushgrin.

If you get twisted in an envelope you will hate a mummy, I have an XL nitestar and DH has an XXL, which are good, but if it is warm enough we just open them up and use them as duvets.
