A quality sleeping bag is essential for good camping experiences, as anyone who has ever camped ill-equipped can tell you. There are tons of considerations when trying to choose a bag that will suit your needs, but some people are intimidated by the seemingly sky-high prices of some sleeping bags. While it’s important to let factors other than price help you decide, there’s nothing wrong with looking for a deal while you’re at it. SunnySports offers great specials on top of already low prices, so make sure to check out our Current Specials to get the best deal on sleeping bags and other outdoor gear!
For campers who expect frigid conditions or just can never seem to get warm, the Marmot Trestles synthetic bag is worth every penny. Rated down to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, this cozy bag keeps warm air trapped inside with the use of a drawcord around the head opening for a tight seal, while a face muff keeps the drawcord and zippers from scratching. The Trestles tapers down at the foot to eliminate cold air space, and Marmot’s use of shingle construction ensures warmth is distributed evenly throughout the bag, blocking out moisture at the same time. This is a great cold-season bag that will last a long time.
People who are not as tall as the average human often find shopping for an adequate sleeping bag to be frustrating, since there is always going to be a cold spot near the feet with those extra unnecessary inches in length. Save money and space with this short synthetic-fill sleeping bag from Slumberjack. Rated ideally for temps around 30 degrees Fahrenheit, this bag cinches up tight with a drawcord hood, which can be flipped inside out to use as head support instead of a hood. It also tapers at the foot for better warmth retention, but it also features a zippered foot vent at the end of the bag for air circulation and temperature control on warmer nights. Maximum height accommodation is 5 feet 4 inches.
If you can never find a balance between too warm and too chilly with your sleeping bag, consider this goosedown-fill flip bag from Mountain Hardware. Rated for temperatures around 35 degrees Fahrenheit on one side and 50 degrees on the other, you can choose how much insulation you receive from your sleeping bag by adjusting whichever side is on top. Unzipped fully, it becomes a lightweight blanket, but it makes an even cozier bed for two when mated with another flip bag. This is a great versatile bag for all kinds of camping trips.
