3 Great Summer Sleeping Bags

#1 – Sierra Designs Backcountry Quilt 800 2-Season Sleeping BagSierra summer sleeping bag

This sleeping bag is a super spacious and padded choice. It’s longer and wider than average sleeping bags, full body length including pockets for your hands, had a hood and its quilt design makes it lighter but also provides extra comfort.

The main pros about this sleeping bag is that it is huge and the Duck DriDown feature. It fits someone up to 6’4, still leaving plenty of wiggle room. The DriDown is hydrophobic, and it keeps you very toasty even in below 0 temps.

Overall it is a very nice choice, but it is a luxury sleeping bag, check the price onWalmart

Complaints: Feet warmth, and some of the down can get clumped in certain areas, causing a need for fluffing the sleeping bag every few uses.
