I don't know anything about grobags, but we use two sleepsacks when it gets colder. Works great.
and 2 great dane "kids"
The Grobag 2.5 is nothing like a Halo Sleepsack! It's much, much warmer and is padded. It's an awesome blanket. I just got a few from the mamabargains deal and am very happy with them! My new baby runs much cooler, too, so these are great for him. The Sleepsacks I have weren't cutting it.
I imagine the 2.5 tog would be warmer than a halo fleece sleepsack. As pp mentioned, the grobags have multiple layers and are much more like a quilt or sleeping bag. I ordered a few 1 tog and 2.5 tog grobags from mamabargains and I'm loving them (as is DD.) It's still too warm here for the 2.5 tog but she's been sleeping in the lighter grobags. It was amazing to see the difference when I got them though. The 2.5 tog really is pretty thick and very warm looking!

Grobags are SO much nicer. To me, they are like a nice comforter; great for a variety of temperatures, whereas the halo sacks sometimes made my girls sweaty when it wasn't cold and weren't warm enough when it WAS cold. Not sure that made sense, but having used both we much prefer Grobags.
Quick! They're on mamabargains again right now!
Yay! I'm glad you got them! Last time they were on was a fiasco -- the site kept crashing for hours, and the server eventually went down. It was crazy!
Is the 1.0 tog more similar in weight to a Halo Sleepsack? We've been really happy with them, but I want to try these (particularly now that my daughter is over 2 and growing out of her sleepsack).
