7 Best Sleeping Bags for a Comfy Camping Experience

7 Best Sleeping Bags for a Comfy Camping Experience

Camping is one of the top recreational activities in the US, according to Statista. In fact, KOA says over 28 million Americans decided to rough it last year.

Here's the deal:

With at least 1 million of last year's campers being newbies, our guess is that they're still using the old  sleeping bags their moms bought them in high school. Sound familiar?

Those sleeping bags probably worked fine for backyard sleepovers, but now you're out in the elements, braving the cold mountain air and sleeping on the ground.

But hey, a sleeping bag's a sleeping bag, right? Wrong!

Let me explain:

Depending on exactly what you do during your camping trips, there are different options for every camper. For example, if hiking is your bag (pun intended), you'll want to invest in a sleeping bag that's not only warm, but lightweight as well. 

On the other hand, if you bring the little ones along, not just any sleeping bag will do for them either. There are kids sleeping bags designed especially to keep their little bodies warm and toasty, too. 

But if you'd still like to check out some others, read our list below of the best sleeping bags!

Why People Love it

  • Super light weight
  • Keeps dew and rain out
  • Like sleeping in a fluffy cocoon

REI is known for it's high quality outdoor products, so it's no wonder they hit the mark with this cozy down bag. It also weighs less than 2 lbs and is super compressible, so it's perfect for backpacking.

The folks over at Swithback Travel love this bag, but say it's a little snug for tall people.

Temperature Rating: This warm down sleeping bag stays warm down to 19º.

Price: Even though this one's the most expensive bag on the list, it's on the lower end of the quality down sleeping bags. Slightly less down fill makes it possible for REI to reduce it's cost.

Why People Love it

  • Adult-quality bag in a cute kid-friendly design
  • It grows with them
  • Fantastic price for good quality

Like Tales from a Mountain Mama says, "A smaller sleeping bag means less space that a child’s body has to heat up to keep them warm." That's why the Kelty Big Dipper gets props for designing a bag small enough for the littles, but adjustable by a few inches so that they won't outgrow it quickly.

If you want a compression stuff sack, you will have to buy it separately.

Temperature Rating: This snuggly little bag wraps your kiddo in a warm little cloud, keeping him toasty all the way down to 30°.

Price: At under $100, the Kelty Big Dipper is priced right for the quality.

Double batting and offset quilting make this one of the most comfortable sleeping bags you'll find. It also has a box shape at the bottom, so there's more wiggle room than other mummy bags.

It's a little too bulky for backpacking.

  • Genuine military quality
  • Best year-round sleep system
  • Love the versatility


These genuine US Army bags are made super durable and waterproof. They're also designed to ward off frostbite by sustaining body heat in conditions down to -30° F.

Weighing in at 11 lbs, this probably won't be the bag you'll want to carry on long treks through the mountains.

Temperature Rating: This baby will sustain you through frostbite conditions. It's made to withstand temperatures down to -30º, but with military clothing, it's said to withstand -50º!

Price: Not gonna lie, this one's pretty pricey for the average camper, but if you need to rough it in a blizzard, you won't mind dropping the cash to keep your toes.
