Without a doubt the top choice for the roving angler. Packing down to the smallest size and being the second lightest on test, the X Snugpak Techlite showed remarkable heat retention properties when tested. Sadly there is no escaping the price and, yes, it is the most expensive on test but for the anglers who can afford it and rely on a lightweight, high-performance bag, this has got to be the choice. Only dropping by 2.3ºC over a three-hour period while being one of the skinniest bags on test goes to show that the quality of the fill is second to none and that bulkier bags are not necessarily the warmest.
