That's what I did in the end but due to their incorrect info I wasted a load of time checking out if I had an incorrect bag or not as it was not as advertised. Based on the info on their site 're size ext, I bought a standard size Trakker RLX 6 plus Thermarest Pad to make the bed more comfy but overall achieving my objective of reducing weight but not losing comfort. Was I wrong to assume that a bag advertised at 95cm wide top and bottom would fit on a bed 88cm wide...No but thats how it turned out thus I wasted my money buying the bed and sleeping pad. Fortunately I was able to find an original sized bag which just about fits, although still tight.
Darren from Fortis's attitude was that I should have checked with them before buying and he suggested I buy a Levelite bed!!

Correct I would not be happy and I would return the bag for a refund as expect thing to be right.

Fortunately I am not in that position.

If you had bought it to fit a certain bed and when it arrived it didn't due to false advertising would you still be so ok with it?No I doubt you would be if you are honest

I took delivery of my mark 2 a couple of weeks ago.

Different DPM colour to my mk1 from 4 years ago, not a problem as not as bright.

A much neater fit on my tracker superlight bedchair than my mk1, but the mk1 still fits fine.

Just over 90cm at the head end of the bag.

YES, 70cm at the very end of the bag,

BUT, at 20cm up from the bottom of the bag I have a width of 85cm.

The 70 cm width at the bottom IMO has been caused due to the corners being slightly rounded as appose to completely square. This may actually be a bonus and eliminate cold spots.

MUMMY SHAPE BAG ? not really.

SLIGHTLY TAPERED ? YES , the last 12 inches.

AM I UNHAPPY ? NO, cracking light weight bag that will do me all year round with the flexibility of removing top layer (obvious).

Just my thoughts folks. Can't see my approaching trading standards or taking Fortis to court.

Now guys what do you think my chances would be off contacting fortis and asking them to replace my bag with the correct size one.
Very slim i guess as i can't see snugpak making the one off to replace mine.

If you go onto snugpaks website it even shows a diagram with measurements and states its a square bag

It should fit a Levelite as that is what it was designed for from what they told me....talk about limiting your market even more....great decision Darran Goulder.
You need to come on here and address these issues and explain because your prospective purchasers will look on here?!

Agree with you on the false advertisement point, and its piss poor on Fortis for not being honest with people. I guess if you have a levelite or compact bed your ok, but surly Fortis have shot themselves in the foot with this one.

I had it on an els bedchair mate so it was quite loose.When I first bought the bag I had it out on the living room floor to check all the stitching and zips and I'm sure it was not narrower at the bottom
