1. Coleman - 0°F Mummy Sleeping Bag for Big and Tall Adults


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Can accommodate most people up to 6 feet 2 inches in height.

Helpful review: "I just got this sleeping bag and cannot wait to try it out on a cold night. I did get in it for a few minutes to see how it felt, and to be honest if it was cold in my home, I could have easily took a long after work nap right then and there... this thing could make a guy lazy... Lol. This bag is so comfortable it's amazing, like laying in a giant marshmallow... not that I've ever done that, I can only imagine it.
Before I bought this I read lots of reviews, and I noticed the biggest issue with most was getting the bag back in the cover. So, before I used this, the very first thing I did was slowly pull it out the cover, and unrolled it taking notice how the factory did it, from there I just simply reversed the process and it went right back in the cover. However, in doing so it's not so easy, it does require you to keep it "tightly" rolled up while putting it back in... you can't let it get loose, gotta "keep" it tight. After two successful tries it got easier to do, it's a bit tough but it is doable.
I would, however, recommend flipping the cover inside out first, this way it can be practically rolled back on the bag from the top side, so that draw string doesn't catch. Fighting that draw string will hang you up and the bag could get loose on ya.
One thing I was concerned about was the size of the bag, it says for big and tall, but to be honest I don't see that it is??? I'm only 5'9", 155lbs and I had room to spare. But I could not imagine or like it if this bag was any smaller. I don't see how a big person could be comfortable in this solely for that reason, not from the lack of comfort but from the lack of room. Personally I like some moving around room, so it fit perfect for me, but if you're bigger and don't mind snug then you might be happy with it. If you're real big, you might wanna look for a bigger bag... just sayin.
Overall it's a good purchase, and from using it for even a few minutes I had to get out of it cause it was getting pretty warm really quick. It's designed for cold temps, but I bet if you used a thermal maylar blanket inside of it, you could easily use it well below zero temps.
And for those who may not know this, before you sleep in a sleeping bag outside, or even inside a tent, always law news papers down under the bag, or something equivalent, and never sleep in the clothes you wore that day. The news paper will keep moisture off the bag from the ground, and the clothes you wore will draw moisture during the day, which will make you feel colder at night even inside a sleeping bag. Always change your clothes before you sleep while camping, you do NOT want to trap moisture inside a sleeping bag at night, "dry" is the key and keeping a sleeping bag covered while not in use is imperative... fact!.
ON TO A FEW WORDS FROM A FRIEND:
Great bag, keeps me super warm, I live in Colorado and do lots of camping and in the cooler months , this bag has been great . I actually became hot throughout the night ,when it was about 20 degree out side and snowing. I love the hood part , you can wrap your pillow in it and then pull the strings to fit your comfort level. Zippers work great can pull up when inside bag. Stuff sack is okay, I'd like it if was a little smaller. It's a little two big for back packing, which sort of sucks ,bc this is one reason why I got the bag. Other than that , it's a great bag." — Brian Hawksworth

2. TETON Sports - Queen Size Sleeping Bag for Family Camping


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Perfect for those who prioritize comfort and a generous size over portability and weight.

Helpful review: "My wife and I recently got back into camping in the Colorado wilderness. It can be 90 in the city but once you get into the mountains, you've got to be prepared. We like to snuggle so instead of getting two bags and worrying about compatibility, I went with a double. We've used it twice now and we're so happy with our decision. There are a few cons but definitely not enough to warrant a star's deduction. Here are my thoughts:
PROS:
- Assuming you have someone in the bag with you, DO NOT LAYER UP too much. We were in t-shirts and shorts and we were VERY warm in the Colorado mountains where it was in the low 40s. We even unzipped the sides to put a leg out at one point! Bottom line is that unless you're literally in below-30 temps, you probably don't need to stack up the layers. A base layer, something on your ears/head, and some warm socks is probably all you'll need if the temps start to drop.
- Outer layer is sturdy and soft.
- Inner lining is VERY soft and cozy. I expected something a bit less comfortable if I'm being honest so it was a very pleasant surprise to find such a lush inner lining.
- Zippers are great! While we didn't separate it entirely, I did notice that both sides zipped independently and each had a lined velcro strap to cover the zippers so the cold metal won't touch your skin. I was hot one morning and was able to unzip my side while my wife stayed bundled up. Speaking of which, there is also a cinch around the top of the bag to create a mummy-style enclosure as seen in the picture. That little cubbie is also good for stuff pillows to keep them in place.
- Lots of straps on the stuff sack; easily carried like a backpack if need be!
CONS:
- Get ready for a workout if you're using the stuff sack it came with. Unless you have a magic folding/rolling gift, you'll probably want an extra set of hands to get the first quarter of the bag in the sack. After that it's just a matter of stuffing all the way down to the bottom of the sack...which takes some effort and time. We are able to get first half of the bag in the stuff sack pretty easily after a few practice runs but fully utilizing the full volume of the bag is difficult. I have found, however, that after cinching the bag closed, the bag molds itself to take up the entire sack so it all works out in the end. If you want an easier time, you'll probably have to buy a bigger stuff sack but...
- The stuff sack is already pretty big and heavy. It has plenty of straps for carrying/tying down but it definitely isn't suitable for more than a very light hike if any.
That about covers my thoughts. If anything glaring comes about I'll update, but this is a fantastic double sleeping bag, especially for those of you who like snuggling up." — Shawn A. Walberg

3. Sleepingo - Double Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Super sturdy and extremely comfortable.

Helpful review: ""This HEAVENLY Sleepingo sleeping bag made the perfect gift for my husband for our annual fall camping trip! We did the Grand Canyon South Rim which is open all winter.
I decided to surprise him with it and hid it until it came time for us to set up camp….as we prepared to hunker down I sent him out to fetch a bottle for me that I had intentionally “left in the car. “ As soon as he went out I quickly spread our brand new double sleeping bag across the floor… slid inside, and waited….
I wish I had videoed the look of shock and excitement on his face when he came back and discovered that he’d be cuddling with ME in this GIGANTIC, COZY BEAUTY- ALL night, EVERY night J J J! Haha!
It was definitely the highlight of our trip! The bag felt like it was tailor made for us! Just large enough (5 feet wide and 7'+ long ) to be spacious and roomy but snug enough to keep us cozy and warm!
We had decent weather most of our trip but our sleeping bag kept us toasty and warm right through the coldest of nights. (Even when the temp dipped just below 40 degrees) it is rated for 32F Mamamia...! It is also completely waterproof and kept us dry despite the moist ground (not to mention our Tibetan Terrier’s drool-y gnawing and chewing attempts which did not yield even the slightest hint of a hole or fray and let me tell you that pooch made a complete playground out of it!!= EXCELLENT QUALITY!... Thank G-d its machine washable… it really came out looking and smelling brand new!
We loved the fact that it has a double zipper, allowing him some air when he was hot, while I was still able to keep zipped right up to my chin. I also didn’t have to wake hubby while I read to fall asleep and he didn’t wake me when he got up to walk Charlie.
Other things I love about this bag is how lightweight it is (6lbs) and the compression sack! This stores at a 10th its true size! And of course, I love the color too… a really natural green, so campy looking!
The coolest feature by far is that this can become TWO - SINGLE sleeping bags!! Hubby says at least our trip is not ruined by the knowledge that we can’t afford to fight….!! NOT FUNNY!!! For those of you who hate prattle-y reviews and like to get the BOTTOM LINE: If you’re looking for a HUGE, LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH QUALITY, WATERPROOF, WASHABLE, COMPRESSIBLE, ADORABLE, COZY SLEEPING BAG that’ll keep you FREAKIN' WARM ALL NIGHT... CONGRATS! YOU FOUND IT!!" — Shaya Windley

4. Oaskys - Camping Sleeping Bag for Warm and Cool Weather


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Great quality for a great price; Amazon best-seller.

Helpful review: "Do you know how when you get a sleeping bag out of the bag... and then you fold it back and then you try to cram it back into the bag... and you can’t do it... and you never get it right... and you tear the bag up... and then you get frustrated and throw things and say curse words? That doesn’t happen with this bag. It’s pretty easy to fold and place back in the bag and then it looks like a burrito not like a lumpy burrito or some sort of weird globe that’s shoved into a sausage casing, but an actual burrito.
Not to the point where you would put salsa on it and then start cutting it with a knife and fork. Anyway, who eats a burrito with a knife and fork? Maybe people in the Midwest? Not people in the south like me, I’m in Texas. I know how to eat burritos that are made out of sleeping bags . I put cheese on them, and then eat it with green salsa. Anyway, what’s this review for? Burritos….hmmm
PROS:
I love the bag— !!!! It actually has a kind of hood effect. You can pull it up over your head and be very cozy, warm and it kind of even locks. Like a ski hood… even filters OUT Some of the noise!
CONS:
It took me a half an hour after I totally unzipped it wrong I guess all the way down the side and the bottom zipper all the way for your feet to come out. So I would not be doing that again. Also, just use the orange zipper and separate zipper at the bottom to let feet out if hot. And I wouldn’t use it for hiking (to carry), because I could not compress it back enough to get it back into the hiking carry bag it came in.
I had no other problems zipping it up or down and it’s very cozy and I got some of the best nights of sleep in it (which is not easy when you’re keeping track of all of the dogs I normally watch !
The bag is massively long, a 6 foot person could get in.
A FEW WORDS FROM A NEIGHBOR:
Now, I just got in it and let me tell you I am a girl that gets super cold and has to wear two or three comforters even in the summertime but I just got in it and immediately got warm so I think it may possibly be warm enough but like other people said I live in the south and spring and fall and you know or indoors in the air-conditioning ha ha which is where I also use it while dog sitting. Because I don’t like to have to wash peoples sheets or anything when I sleep over. I can sleep on their couches in this or on top of their bed and this-because I’m a super lazy retiree haha! I just finished using it for 12 nights in a super cold, drafty and humid New Orleans “shotgun” house during Mardi Gras ‘23 while dog sitting and it was 30° some nights. With a crappy heating system here it was a life saver! If I was a camper I would take it!" — R. Swanson

5. SWTMERRY - Lightweight Sleeping Bag for Teens and Adults


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: A weather-resistant, waterproof sleeping bag.

Helpful review: "I work at a church that serves the homeless. I buy 4-5 sleeping bags at a time and keep them on hand for our homeless friends when they are new to the streets or have lost theirs due to theft, etc. These are perfect for distribution and are very economical." — Carlene Wood
Trending review: "I purchased 2 of these sleeping bags (one in blue, one in purple) for my twin daughters to use at an overnight school field trip to an Indian reservation, where they were staying in a cabin and doing outdoor lake activities like canoeing, fishing, hiking, etc. They slept on bunk beds but this facility didn't provide bedding, so I thought this would be the most efficient way to equip them vs. sending sheets, blankets, etc. They loved these sleeping bags! We live in the south, so we did not need them to be too thick. They are just thick enough to keep you quite warm, but you can unzip it accordingly to adjust your body temp. I love the fact that these sleeping bags have extra room around the head, so you can have softness under and around your head as well. It rolls up easily into a little bag, so packing and unpacking it is a breeze. I highly recommend these sleeping bags!." — Southern Grandeur
Reassuring review: "I could not believe how warm this bad boy was. I purchased for car camping, and used it nightly. I was actually warmer in it with the less clothes I wore. it was good down to 37 degrees comfortably, then I started adding more clothing. The hood is roomie, which is a really nice feature and it was super long, and enough room to spin in... I am 150lbs 5'8". I thought having a footbox zipper would be colder, but I ended up having to unzip it, because I was so toasty sometimes. I don't recommend washing it a lot, though. The construction quality is a bit shoddy, so a washing machine could take it out.." — Mara Bird

6. Coleman - Brazos Cold-Weather Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Stay warm in temperatures as low as 20°F.

Helpful review: "It is GREAT for cold weather, seriously. Here's a tip our trekking guide gave us and it completely changed my experience. This bags work with your own body heat, so when you get into your tent, take your clothes off and snuggle in. The first night on top of Mount Roraima I got inside of it with my cold weather pajamas and two pair of socks and I felt like my feet were going to fall off. Second night, after he told us this, I slept with nothing but my underwear on and at some point I had to take off the blanket because I felt it was getting too warm. I couldn't believe how when I had to go out it was sooo cold, while I was com warm and comfy inside.
The only cons is that it is really big and in my case (8 to 11hr walk everyday, for three days up and 2 down) it made it a little hard for me to carry it on my back. I took only the essentials but it still added 2kg of discomfort. Yet, my trekking friends kept complaining about not getting good sleep because of the cold and I still don't regret taking it with me. My guides told me to leave it in the camp because it was too big and heavy, but for me, a pussy when it comes to weather, it was worth it." — Valeria Bonilla

7. REVALCAMP - Ultralight Hiking Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Easy to pack. There’s no need to fold or roll it. Just stuff it into the sturdy carrying bag, pull the straps, and it folds down into a small, light two pound package that will easily fit in any backpack.

Helpful review: "I swear I'm not getting paid for this lol. Anyways, I give this review a 5/5 because it came very fast, it was affordable, the color came as advertised, it did not smell bad like others had said, it's warm for me (you might want to add a blanket if you're in an obviously cold environment), it's somewhat comfy (better than the floor), it is very spacious, (I'm 5'5 and I can literally zip myself all the way), and it's easy to put back inside the bag. To put it back inside you literally just stuff it in. Don't roll it up... I mean, you can try and be all perfect. However, just make your life easy and stuff it in. I did notice a little insignificant stain, but I removed it. It's worth it!" — Miriam Munoz

8. Coolzon - All-Season Sleeping Bag for Adults and Kids


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Perfect balance between waterproofness, breathable-ness and warmth.

Helpful review: "I bought these bags for camping in the Boundary Water Canoe Area of Minnesota, 45-50 degree Fahrenheit lows. The bags are very compact and lightweight. They survived rough treatment (24 portages and 7 camp setups & teardowns)! We ran inflatable bag pads underneath each bag. I treated the bags with a permethrin insecticide before the trip with no ill effects on the filler or liner materials. The bags required a machine wash and a line dry when we got back home, cause they had some stank. This is usually when a sleeping bag fails, but these bags survived! No lumpiness in the filling or anything ill. These are great bags for mild weather. I would not take them camping when expecting really cold weather unless I was dressed adequately. Good for couch surfing, jam bags, office crashing, and as an emergency blanket for vehicles. The only wrinkle we experienced was: There is a bit of hook and loop closure (like Velcro) near the head. My wife woke up with her hair in the hook and loop a couple of times and it took her some time to extricate herself while I giggled… I highly recommend this bag to you as a great value and a quality product. Thanks for reading through! I hope this helps you make an informed decision." — JCG
Trending review: "Camping one night in mid 50 degree temps. First time I've ever stayed warm in a bag without long pants/shirt/socks in a tent at that temperature-normally I wake up chilled and feeling damp. Bag even comes with a "mummy bag" style hood that feels more padded than usual. Only complaint is how narrow the bag is. Hard to roll on side in bag and still have that hood on the bottom as a pillow. Also if you frequently find yourself putting your arms in and out of blankets, this will be more frustrating to get used to. Overall, I'm glad I spent the money on the bag, it packs up much smaller than other bags and is warm enough for most camping experiences." — Allicia Hayes
Reassuring review: "I bought this sleeping bag because I needed a sleeping bag for my trip to Arizona where we planned on camping at the Grand Canyon. This meant it needed to be small enough and lightweight enough to fly in a checked bag, but also warm enough for freezing temps. This sleeping bag did the trick! While it wasn’t always super easy to get it back in its bag it definitely was able to and it was more than sufficient to keep me warm at the Grand Canyon when the temps dropped down into the 30s. It was warm enough that I was able to take off my winter jacket while in the sleeping bag in the tent. So if you sometimes need to fly to get to your camping destination then this sleeping bag is perfect!." — Shannon Jeropke

9. TETON Sports - XXL Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Rain or shine, you'll be warm and rested in this sleeping bag. The zipper and shoulder draft tubes, thermal enhancing, double-layer offset stitching, and innovative hollow fiber fill work together so the warmth stays in.

Helpful review: "Highly recommended for car camping. The Teton XXL sleeping bag is super comfortable. I love that the foot area does not unzip since its usually the zipper on the foot area of bags that comes undone just when you don't want it to. This bag is simple to zip up and down, I don't have to wrestle with fabric, or baffles because it all stays in place as it should. Its wide and long enough for even a large, tall man. I bought a left and a right sleeping bag so i could zip them together. Again, it zips together so easily and two of them together is wider than a queen bed.
I don't get tangled when wiggling around inside it and it stays lofty.
Sure there are cheaper bags out there, but i have come to like the Teton company. They are a small private company who takes personal interest in all their products and also in your satisfaction. I would buy this bag again.
Oh yeah, and the included stuff sack is generously sized, so it is not a struggle to get the bag back inside.
I have washed my bag twice by hand and once by machine and am still happy. It dried quick enough, and kept its form and loft. ( though that did void the warrantee) If you found this review helpful, please press that helpful button to say thanks." — Ninja

Highlight: For camping in temperatures as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

Helpful review: "Okay, I bought these for a weekend camping trip that was supposed to be 40 degrees Fahrenheit at the lowest. During the night there was a sudden unexpected freeze and it dropped down to 25! However, we didn't even notice because we were snug in these sleeping bags. When I woke up, there was a layer of ice on the sleeping bag, but I was still warm! These are awesome, especially for the price! The color was more of a cranberry/burgundy and they're a little tricky to roll up, but I would definitely recommend this sleeping bag." — Asa

11. ECOOPRO - Warm Weather Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Measures 83"L x 30"W; size fits most people; can accommodate an adult or two children.

Helpful review: "This bag is lightweight but well made. I used it when walking the Portuguese Camino from Porto to Santiago in April. Perfect for most nights but on few nights i needed to add clothes when in unheated albetgues. The 59°f rating is probably about right but with clothes it was good in the low 40s. I have used it on a few other camping trips and it has worked very well. The zippers, often the weak spot of sleeping bags are excellent. I have machine washed and dried the bag several times and so far it has held up well. This bag far exceeded my expectations." — Curmudgeon
Trending review: "This is a great 3 season bag on its own and can be used to low 40s if you layer and presumingly mid-30s with a sleeping bag liner, I took this on a solo camping trip in mid-summer in northern California, and temperatures came down to 39f that night and I was very warm through the night. I layered that night and had a sleeping bag liner. If you plan to sleep in temps below the low 50s, I recommend you pick up a sleeping back liner and layer, I'm a very cold sleeper and was surprised it kept me warm." — Diego
Reassuring review: "I read reviews before I bought the item. I did not purchase this sleeping bag because I thought it was going to give me the same results as an actual high-end $300+ lightweight hiking sleeping bag. I bought this because I needed something quick and didn't want to spend that much money. One reviewer mentioned they ripped the straps trying to pull the sleeping bag out of its sleeve. As I was trying to pull my sleeping bag out of its sleeve I heard a small pop and stopped. I remembered what the review said and it almost happened to me. It was long enough for me (6'2") and compacted to a good backpack size. Should hold up for at least 1 summer camping trip. That is what I an expected for $39.99. After I wrangled the sleeping bag back into the sleeve, I went to synch the straps down and 1 ripped right out of the stitching. It was just the sleeve so not a big deal. Again, I bought a cheap low-grade material sleeping bag and I will use it as such. Don't expect to hand this family heirloom off to a grandkid in 20 years.." — Kyle

12. CANWAY - Sleeping Bag for Warm and Cold Weather


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Separated bottom zipper lets you stick your feet out.

Helpful review: "I bought this as I was going to camp during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Things that I liked:
1. The design and feel of this sleeping bag are really nice. It comes packaged neatly too.
2. The double sided zipper is convenient to zip up from inside and the drawstring on the hood allows you to pack yourself in properly.
3. The flannel material makes it cozier inside.
4. It’s easy to carry and compact in size
The sleeping bag itself was quite comfortable, but the cover it came in didn’t appear to have been stitched very well - a strap came off with a tug. But it might be just the piece I got, and it doesn’t bother me too much as there are straps on the bag that I can use to carry it around. All in all, this sleeping bag does everything it claims and is good value for money." — Vishal

13. VENTURE - Backpacking Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Comfortable, lightweight and water resistant sleeping bag; tested to the highest standards; designed to keep you warm, cozy and comfortable.

Helpful review: "We had our first back country camp trip recently and these sleeping bags were awesome. They were big enough for me (I'm a big hefty) The zipper was super easy to work and I LOVE the foot opening because I am one of those people who need to keep their feet out of the covers most of the time. I was expecting to have a fight on my hands to get them back in the packaging but it was not bad at all and when I was done my husband and I were both shocked.
If I have a negative thing to say it would be that these are slippery on the outside when they are on top of a self inflatable mattress. When I first turned in I was warm so I just left the bag unzipped and I was uncovered. Later it got cool but the sleeping bag had slid around so that I had to adjust the entire thing in order to get it to fit over me. I ended up having to zip it and adjust any time I turned. Other than that it was awesome. I would not hesitate to recommend these as they are super light weight, comfortable and seem to be well made. I can't attest to how they hold up in cold weather as we did not make it to our 6000' goal." — avid shopper

14. FARLAND - Lightweight Sleeping Bag for Teens and Adults


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Will keep you warm in extreme conditions; will prevent dampness.

Helpful review: "When I received the sleeping bag, it was in a vacuum sealed bag which made it easy to store until I needed to use it.
After opening the sealed plastic wrap the sleeping bag was not much larger. I already used it for two camping trips and two backpacking trips. It kept me warm on my trips. I was actually surprised that I did not get cold like the times I used my sleeping bag I bought from Costco. I really like how practical the bag’s design is.
Here are the pros:
+The bag comes in a stuff bag; you do not have to worry about rolling the bag tightly neat to put the sleeping bag into the stuff bag.
+The straps on the stuff bag makes it easy to attach to a backpack, or carry in general.
+The sleeping bag is not that big, I think it’s great for people that are 5 feet and 8 inches or shorter.
+The sleeping bag has a zipper at the feet AND a side zipper; I was able to unzip at the feet so that my feet do not get too hot.
+The bag is rated for 20 degrees; I slept in 0 degree whether with a jacket on.
Cons:
-Sleeping bag may be too small for people taller than 5 feet 8 inches.
-The sleeping bag is not too wide either; I call it a mummy sleeping bag.
-The straps, used to compress the bag which are on the outside of the stuff bag, get in the way of the opening of the sleeping bag; It might be difficult at times to take the bag in and out of the stuff bag because the straps are in the way, maybe I am doing it wrong…
Overall, I would recommend this sleeping bag to friends and family. It’s a great and practical bag; it is compact and easy to carry. For the price, it is a really good bag compared to other bags in the price range. If you have the money and are tall, I suggest going for a 0 degree bag or negative degrees bag that has multiple zippers like this sleeping bag does to control the heat. If you are about 5 feet 8 inches tall or below, and you are on a budget, looking for a sleeping bag that is easy to pack and carry, then this sleeping bag may be a great fit" — Sophie

Helpful review: "The sleeping bags were even better then we imagined. We hiked the Cumberland Gap and slept in a tent at the top of the mountain. It got down to 30 and high winds. The air was so cold, but we were so warm in these amazing sleeping bags. My biggest fear hiking is I don’t want to freeze when it’s time to sleep, we did not freeze, it kept our body heat in and inside the sleeping bag was like a heated blanket! I’m so glad we took the chance and bought these. Thank you!!!" — Tonya Lusby

Highlight: Perfect flannel liner sleeping bag for adults up to 6'6" tall; high-quality and durable 210T polyester ripstop.

Helpful review: "I ordered this bag for my husband to use in his truck. He's a truck driver and doesn't like to sleep directly on the nasty mattress in the bunk. This is the second sleeping bag that I have ordered for my husband in as many weeks. The first one (different brand) was too small so he wanted something roomier. I bought this one because it was much larger, thinking he would finally be happy. Boy, was I wrong! Apparently, it is warm enough for the Alaskan wilderness (according to him). I am giving this bag 5 stars because I'm giving up. He's gonna complain regardless and he likes the size so I consider it a win. I ordered the gray one(he would have preferred the black). I'm keeping the bag but may put my ever-complaining husband up for sale on eBay or check to see if his mother accepts returns." — Yourmama1977

17. TETON Sports - Deer Hunter Sleeping Bag


best lightweight sleeping bags

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: Soft lining; half-circle mummy style hood keeps you warm and your pillow clean; unzips at the top or bottom for easy access and ventilation; perfect for camping in all seasons.

Helpful review: "My family and I go camping about four times a year and I freeze my butt off if the temperature drops below about 45 F. In the past I have tried several different bags promising to keep you warm at 20 F or 0 F only to find I am still shivering at 40 deg F. And when my sleep is miserable then so is my trip. Decided to give this Teton Sports DeerHunter model a try because I like rectangular bags (especially the rare ones that have drawstring curved hoods) and this bag has a survival rating of -35 F. The bag is also not crazy expensive like many expedition rated mummy bags that advertise terrific warmth at very low temperatures but weigh only five pounds and cost $300 plus.
Amazon delivered the DeerHunter to me a week later and I unfolded it from the supplied carrying bag. My first impression was that it was thick. Very thick. And it weighs about 16 pounds (7.3 Kg), so definitely more of a bag for car camping or longer term hunting trips than for the expedition style camper. The bag also has heavy duty zippers and inner and outer pockets to hold cell phones, wallets, etc.. A great mummy style hood with drawstrings that can be pulled up tight around the head. This bag is hand wash only (and Teton recommends watching the video on their website first if you plan to hand wash it) which at first seems like a deal killer but the reason is that any washing machine will compress the synthetic insulation too much, causing the bag to lose a bit of its heat retaining characteristics. The same is true of storing the bag too tightly compressed for many months.
Crazy as it may sound, upon receiving the DeerHunter, I took it to my friend's cousin who owns a meat packing shop with large walk in style freezers. I asked him if I could try the bag in the freezer overnight. He said something in Italian about me being crazy but made sure the door could be opened from the inside and set up the temperature control to begin at 0 F and then move slowly down to -20 F over the next five hours. (we could not set the temperature to -35 F which is the survival rating of this bag - the freezer only went to -20 F) I made sure I had adequate oxygen in the room and then set up my cot at 11 PM and went to sleep. (When I camp, I use a cot about 8 inches off the ground, a closed cell foam sleeping pad and then my bag on top of that) At 0 F, this bag worked excellent and I was still warm enough with my long underwear, blue jeans, flannel shirt and jacket on. By the time the temp got down to -20 F, I felt pretty chilled (not enough to be truly miserable but enough to affect sleeping). I slipped on my two extra layers of fleece I had in the bag beside my body and went back to sleep. It was not great sleep, but I did get back to sleep (the air was so cold that I did notice it at my throat but I still went back to sleep). I don't know how well this bag would work on frozen soil without a cot or sleeping pad, but for my style of camping, I was pretty impressed that it allowed sleep at -20 F.
In short, this bag probably does live up to its claims which is that if you are warmly dressed in multiple layers, you can survive the night at around -30 to -40 deg F. It is well built and includes a nice carrying bag with handles. For the $135 I paid for it, excellent bag and highly recommend. Five stars." — A. Aurelius
