Taska Sneeka Bed/Bag Combo
Planning on staying super mobile this spring? You'll need the right kit to do that - and that could be Taska's new Sneeka bed/bag combo...

The big questions

Hold on, Sneeka? Oh, I get it!
Yep, you’re right, it’s lightweight. Taska rate the bag at three-season, which means that you’ll be fine using it from March to November, although it’s a bit more versatile than the mere three-season rating, as you’ll discover.

Tell me it’s not one of those bags that can slide around on the bed?
Nope, the Sneeka is well appointed with features to help it stay put, so when you want to turn over, it doesn’t twist around you. There are hoods at either end that slip over the head and foot of the bed, and a quick-release strap that secures the middle section of the bag.

Fleece or cotton inner?
Fleece inners tend to divide the nation of carp angling, right? Some love the extra warmth they bring, but others can’t abide their ‘clinginess’. Taska split the difference here, opting for a cool, cotton inner for this bag, which gives wonderful freedom to twist and turn in the bag, while being a touch more cosy than man-made inners.

Just how warm is it?
Okay, so Taska say that it’s three-season, but the synthetic down filler inside the bag makes this a serious contender for winter use too. Up-rate its thermal properties with the Taska Waterproof Bed Cover and you’ve got a truly affordable cold-weather combo.

Any features that stand out?
Frankly, yes. The 3D hood system allows the top of the bag to be drawn up together, via drawcords, pulling it tight in around your head for those chillier nights! Side tank zips really do allow you to crash out the bag to hit that run, rather than getting stuck inside and doing the caterpillar
to the rods!

What about accessories?
Yep, Taska makes a Waterproof Bedchair Cover that fits the Sneeka, as well as specially designed pillows with fleece on one side and cotton on the other, so you
can choose the one you prefer.

What sort of money are we talking?
The Sleeka Bag is a measly £49.99, the Waterproof Bed Cover – which has an incredible 20,000mm hydrostatic Head waterproof rating (which in standard English is mind-blowing) – retails for £99.99, and the pillows come in at £12.99 (Medium) and £14.99 (Large).

I hear there’s a matching bedchair too?
That’s correct, and like the sleeping bag, this is lightweight too. But you might not know that it’s packed with features that will make you feel like you’re on a much chunkier bed.

How does it rate for stability?
Six legs ensure that you and your mates can cram onto the Sneeka for a social, and you don’t have to worry about them buckling the thing! To save weight the legs at the head and foot are singles, but that’s so much better than nothing at all!

Firm or saggy?
Taska’s AST Webbing system actually prevents the bed from sagging over time, and gives a reassuringly firm feel and added lumbar support from the word go too. So, you’ll be every bit as well supported five years in, as you are first time out.

Easy to pack and stow?
Funny you should ask! It folds away nice and flat, so even those of you with ‘spatially compromised’ cars will be able to fit one in with ease. Taska has kindly supplied a carry strap for free with the Sneeka, so manhandling it around the lake, or from barrow to boot becomes that bit easier.

Can it handle tricky terrain?
Of course! All the six legs are adjustable, which gives a supremely flexible platform that can cope with undulating swims, without leaving you trying to sleep on a slope!

And how hard does this hit my wallet?
Just like the bag, this is very well priced too, coming it at just £129.99. taskacarp.com
