Looking for a double width sleeping bag for Spring / Summer / Autumn use. Budget around the £50
mark. Recommendations appreciated. Thanks.

Haven't used a 'bag since ages. 2x double/kingsize duvets, one under, one over. The one under is the trick, especially if on an airbed. Bliss cloud9
This may not be of help if you are hiking of course!

Use a duvet, with a synthetic duvet underneath which will provide the best insulation. A fitted sheet does a great job of keeping it in place.

Sleeping bags, something I've never understood, yet I've been camping for years. I can just about manage in a large double. Duvets for me.

A double width sleeping bag... to share occupancy with?

Just don't. Sleeping bags are designed to turn with you, rather than you turning independently, as under a duvet. This means that an occupant in a double sleeping bag who turns over will drag the entire bag over, partner included.

Double sleeping bag for just myself, vintage car and caravan stopovers at steam rallies. Wife detests the very idea of stopping over in what is essentially a single ply box on wheels laugh
The sleeping bag is good as it rolls up very small, not as good as a duvet for comfort.

Any excuse to add an image of the old girl.

Thank you.
According to the Historic Caravan Club historians, I’m also a member, it is believed to be a ‘Angela’
dating from c1928 - 1930. Almost certainly a prototype and did not make it into the Companies building book. It was found on the South Coast in a brick barn about ten years ago and in generally in good condition. The caravan was purchased from a very elderly widowed lady who garaged it up upon the death of her husband. It was then sold again to a couple who carried out a light restoration including a new roof canvas and cosmetic makeover. I purchased about two half years ago. This is the third vintage caravan that I have owned.
My tow car is an 1934 Austin 16/6 ‘Carlton’ limousine.

I believe that's what's called a classic combo, love it.
And at some point, you added the roof extension c/w brick chimney and satellite dish?... wink

Many a time I wish that I had a little wood stove!
