I just spent six nights on the overland track using the XP500. After chilling days in the snow across the broad range of track conditions on the overland it was a pleasure to climb into this bag for good snooze. On the -5 nights the bag was at its limit re comfort so I suggest if on the track in august then select the 700. Overall happy with the purchase.

Flexible Family Sleeping Bag
I bought a left and right hand zip version of this at the mention of the Tower Junction staff and now they can zip together. Great for partners, and has the required foot zip for worming capabilities.

Great all rounder!
I purchased the Latitude 500XP to use during my Outdoor Recreation studies. Over the course of two years it saw warm nights sea kayaking, frosty nights in the Simpson Desert and camping in the snow on Mt Feathertop. The fact you can ventilate it out really easy makes it a very versatile bag and a personal favourite.

I'm trying to decide between the Overland 400, XP 500 or XP700 to replace my 25yr old Escapade 350 (bought originally to travel through Asia!)? I use my bag camping (tent), tramping and skiing (staying in huts). This summer using my 350 I was uncomfortably cold in mild temps of 14 degrees C!! I am obviously feeling the cold more as I age! Would the 700 or 500 be too hot. Would the 400 be too cold! Weight is a big consideration plus ventilation. Help, I just cant decide!🤔
BEST ANSWER: Hi Alex, the Overland 400 and Latitude XP 500 have similar temperature ratings the Overland has a temperature rating of -1 Limit of -7 and extreme of -24 whereas the 500 XP has a temperature rating of 0 Limit of -6 and extreme of -23. The Overland has a hyper dry treatment which provides a water resistant coating on the duck down which allows the down to puff back up if the down was to become wet. The 500 XP is goose down and does not have the Hyper dry feature, however the outer shell is constructed from Pertext Quantum Pro which provides a water resistance coating to provide increased weather resistance, durability, high water resistance and maximises efficiency of insulation. The 700 XP has the same specs except the temperature rating is slightly better the temperature rating is as follows - Comfort -4/Limit -10 and extreme -29. The extreme temperature rating refers to having 6 hours to get out of the situation or the situation could become life threatening. Depending on what weather conditions and temperatures you will experience will be the decider of which bag to purchase.
