Minimus K Series Reviews:
"I am sending a well overdue message to say thanks for your help with the sleeping bag. The run across the Atacama was an amazing adventure and the sleeping bag was first class - one of my favourite and best performing bits of kit. The weight was impressively low - less than all the other bags I saw out there - which helped me have one of the lightest packs there. The performance was spot on - most nights it was plenty warm enough even though the temperature was below the 5 degrees rating, and on the couple of nights it was at -4 degrees, wearing a down jacket made for a good night's sleep. All of this helped me not just finish the event but finish as top British runner and third overall."

"I was backpacking in the Yorkshire Dales with your Minimus K bag with the Ultrashell fabric. At around 9.45pm we found our tent had collapsed (ground was waterlogged and pegs not holding) and my sleeping bag was soaked. Initial panic as wet down is never good! But the water just poured off the bag like off a duck's back, leaving damp fabric but dry down inside. Miraculous!
Wanted to let you know how utterly fantastic that Ultrashell is....I got it as we have a single skin tent prone to condensation but never expected it to allow my down bag to survive a soaking! Above and beyond expectations. I was already impressed with the bag which is amazingly warm for the weight"

"I have been delighted with this bag and I can't believe the warmth it provides for the weight!"
— Markus Waddoup.
Reviews of the standard Minimus bag, which is 85g heavier
"Over the past twenty five years have tried and tested many bags but as yet I can honestly say, have not found a more comfortable bag."
— Jeremy Hastings, Islay Bushcraft..
"Some winter climbers venturing into the high mountains may want the extra mental and physical comfort of a sleeping bag ... [and] super lightweight bags are the way forward. Bags like PHD's Minimus ... [are] perfect for this kind of thing."
— Andy Kirkpatrick.
"I wanted to thank you for super-quick service in supplying me with my Minimus sleeping bag in time for the OMM, despite me ringing up only 3 days beforehand. You even modified the one you had in stock to add a zip! Amazing responsiveness and very helpful and friendly customer service. The bag itself performed brilliantly on a very wet and windy Scottish night on the OMM, and I look forward to using it next time."
— Bill Welch.
"I have just completed a TGO Challenge, coast-to-coast, crossing Scotland with my Minimus bag. The bag performed superbly, easily coping with temperatures that were nudging towards zero. A very impressive - and very light - piece of kit. Thanks a lot."
— Andy Howell.
"I used my PHD Minimus Down Sleeping Bag. I was very impressed with the bag's versatility - whatever conditions I used it in, I was always comfortable. And of course the lightness and compactness are a great help when packing your rucksack for a multi-day outing."
— Robin Jones - Imperial College Reru Valley Expedition (Zanskar Himalaya, India).
"Proud owner of a Minimus bag for several years now. Used on various mountain marathons and last May on the TGO Challenge ... comfortable every night including several above the snowline at 700m. Fantastic piece of gear."
"Just to say thanks for another comfortable night in my Minimus bag. Did the KIMM with it last weekend, and woke in the morning to thick ice on a nearby pond, but still warm. Fantastic warmth to weight ratio!"
"Both the [Minimus] sleeping bag and [Minimus] vest are of superb quality and great value for money, wouldn't change them for anything, thanks for great products."
"The Minimus has been/is a terrific bag. I feature the bag when I do training for the Appalachian Mountain Club and for REI. Even though I get pro-deals on equipment working at REI ... I can't help but buy the best designs! Nice work."
"I took it on a 9 day trip ... on a section of the Great Divide Trail ... Coldest temp was 0 and with sleeping gear on I was just warm enough. Size and weight made it a good value for a summer bag for the Canadian Rockies ... I will definitely continue to make a part of my regular summer gear."
"[Your] Minimus is such an excellent product and will be ideal for my Great Divide race ... the longest unsupported mountain bike race in the world."
— Bruce Dinsmore.
"I have been extremely impressed with this bag especially its lightness [it] was the envy of everyone [during the Marathon des Sables]. I can highly recommend this sleeping bag, I wish I'd had one years ago."
— Mary Hawarth.
"I've just received a Minimus sleeping bag which I'm delighted with!"
"Thank you for ... my Minimus sleeping bag ... it is a very good product with an after sales service to envy. Rest assured I will let all my friends and colleagues know the quality of your company. Thanks again."
