Following on from our guide to sleeping mats, now we take a look at how to chose the right sleeping bag for you.

'A good sleeping bag makes all the difference for a comfortable night’s sleep. Whether you’re in a tent, bothy, bivvying or Alpine hut, the right sleeping bag can make or break a trip away. The question is, do you need that minus 15 sleeping bag? What is Fill Power? Down or synthetic?'

We help answer your questions and help you choose the right sleeping bag. For more information follow the link or come into the shop and speak to one of our staff members.

Lisa will be appearing at this years Keswick Mountain Festival on the 9th of June at 11am. Lisa will be talking about her Long Distance Running adventure in the Queyras and showing the kit she used to make sure she was warm, dry, cool, comfortable and everything in between.

Book your seats here: http://www.keswickmountainfestival.co.uk/lisa-bergerud

Lisa has been with George Fisher for over 25 years and is now key buyer of both men’s and women’s clothing. Her knowledge of the latest technology is second to none. A keen outdoor enthusiast she is always out on some adventure whether tagging tarns, lapping lakes or summiting mountains - she’s always up to something. Just recently she went on an epic Long Distance running holiday in the Queyras.

Lisa's talk at the +Keswick Mountain Festival will be held in the Studio at the +Theatre by the Lake. Studio Talks are included with a Keswick Mountain Festival weekend ticket or a taster activity wristband at no extra cost. When reserving your seat you will be asked for your SEE tickets booking reference so make sure you have this handy! If you wish to attend a talk but don't have a ticket you will need to purchase an activity token at the Festival Box Office (£3) (nb NOT Theatre by the Lake box office),

Please note studio capacity is 70 seats and is on a first come first served basis.

If you want a taster of Lisa's talk, check her blog out here: https://www.georgefisher.co.uk/blogs/george-fisher-blog/2018-03-05-quest-across-the-queyras/

To meet Montane athlete +Debbie Martin-Consani and hear about her achievements, join us, Debbie and Montane for an 'Evening in +Abraham's Cafe' on Saturday 19th of May - get your tickets HERE - https://bit.ly/2HmHXlp

Debbie finished the Montane Tour Des Geants in 2017, saying; “I doubt I will do many things in life that could possibly compare to TdG. I unearthed layers of myself I didn't know I had. There were moments I felt I was just torturing myself, but I never wanted to stop. The drive to finish overpowered everything” A massive leap into the unknown, she finished in 127 hours; an outstanding achievement considering the TDG is classed as one of the 5 “hardest runs” in the world.

Containing 24,000m / 78,700ft of ascent (the equivalent of climbing Everest nearly three times) within its 205 miles / 330km, competitors need to be at the peak of their physical ability and mentally agile enough to cope with up to seven days of unpredictable and changeable mountain weather across an entire region of the Italian Alps. Add to this sleep deprivation, altitude acclimatisation and a cut-off time of only 150 hours.

Little wonder only 50% of competitors complete the race. Debbie’s previous performance - and goals for this year - are indicative of an athlete with great physical and mental strength.
