First Look - Mountain Equipment Xero MM Sleeping Bag

For a while now I've been on the look out for a new lightweight sleeping bag for summer use. I really liked the look of the Rab top bag but these seem to be quite hard to come by and still command a premium second hand, the other bag I had my eye on was the PHD Minimus which I'd pretty much decided to buy, but on trip to Manchester and a visit to the Mountain Equipment (ME) store I came across the ME Xero MM bag and decided it could be the bag for me.

I didn't buy the bag there and then but was definitely intrigued by it and the possibilities for it, I returned home and scoured the net to read all I could about it. There doesn't seem to be too much info available online re these bags, but I liked what I'd seen so went ahead and ordered one which arrived yesterday.
