Popular Products in Sport and OutdoorThe Bottom Line Coleman makes it easy to find the sleeping bag that is just right for your individual needs.
Coleman is one of the biggest - if not the biggest - names in outdoor gear and products. When we began looking at equipment, it seemed that the Coleman name was everywhere we went.
Coleman makes a huge line of sleeping bags, depending on your needs. It would be impossible to wade through and compare every single one. At their website, www.coleman.com you can search to find what sleeping bag best suits you out of their product line.
The first thing to consider is the size of the person who will be using the sleeping bag. Coleman bags run from under 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet 6 inches.
The next is to decide in what temperatures you will be camping, or if the bag is just to be used indoors.
Next you can select from a variety of outer shell options: nylon, ripstop nylon, and cotton. Again, this will depend on the weather and if you are sleeping in a shelter, tenting or plan to just be under the stars.
Inner lining selections are tricot, cotton flannel, poly cotton, cotton or nylon. The tricot and cotton flannel are the softest, while the nylon provides the best warmth in extreme conditions.
Once you press the "Find my Sleeping Bag" button after selecting what features you desire in a sleeping bag, you will be given the specifications on sleeping bags for the height you specified or taller.
In addition to the specifications, the information on the site will tell you the weight of the insulation, which is important to backpackers, and the size the sleeping bag is when flat. There will also be a picture of each bag, so you can get an idea of exactly what each one looks like.
This makes it easy to select exactly what you want from the wide variety of Coleman sleeping bags available.
The Coleman sleeping bags that are not mummy style can zip together to form a double sleeping bag. This saves from having to purchase an additional bag should you want to sleep this way.
The tailoring around the zipper on Coleman brand sleeping bags helps to keep the material from being caught, and the thermolock feature reduces heat loss through the zipper itself. What makes a sleeping bag warm is your own body heat, so it is important to keep the heat in and cold air out.
Coleman backs its sleeping bags with a five-year limited warranty.
