I bought 4 similar cotton cover coleman sleeping bags from Overstock and just loved them.Guests who have had the chance to sleep in them have wanted me to order them a bag but the bag is no longer in stock. I've been searching for like bags ever since and these bags are a close cousin. These bags are so cozy for kids and for people who like to use the bag interchangeably between bag and comforter. They are too bulky and heavy to hike with. I bought 6 bags this time around with no regrets.
I just got this bag today. Whipped open the box, untied the bag, and plopped right into it. Overall a great bag for a camp. PRO's- #1- The zipper has a red plastic guard on it for when you are zipping it up. Good idea for keeping the snaggle-monster from stopping you. #2- Good size. Roomy inside (I am 5'10" 185ish) and after a day in camp I know I would sleep soundly. #3- I liked the color cuz it made me feel a little old school. #4- Seems as if it had great loft to it. Good to create a thermal barrier when you are snoozin'. #5- Nice simple little pocket on the inside. Looks to be perfect for that iPhone. It would rest right by a teen's chest so all they could breathe in safety... ("Where's my phone!! How many likes are on my instagram pic!? I need to snapchat or I'll die!!) CON's- What was ok, but not great... I think my only 2 complaints are #1- The inside fabric was a little stiff and had a mechanical smell to it. Not a deal breaker by any means, but I am sure after a wash in the ole machine it will soften up and improve the smell. Maybe sitting on the clothes line will be good to air it out too. #2- I saw some reviews about the shoe string enclosures to keep it stored. Soo... Coleman missed the mark a little on it. The top of the bag (Where your head would be) has a fabric square attached to the bag. When rolling it up, that fabric piece will wrap around the bag, and on the ends are two strings to keep it together. I can see that the fabric or strings will not take much use. Good idea and Coleman gave 'er a try, but... oh well. Take 'er back to RnD fellas! I will most likely trim that off and get a simple cinch strap from *** ******** World famous ****. Those 2 things kept me from making it a 5. Wish they had a 4.5 star. I would buy this product again if I needed another. Hope I was helpful!
I'm always on the look out for sleeping bags with cloth covering on the outside-not the shiny slippery stuff-so I was glad to find this sleeping bag! Living in Nevada we don't have need of a truly cold-weather sleeping bag, so it's perfect for us!
- How accurate was the sizing? It's a tad smaller than I thought it would be compared to my other "big and tall" sleeping bag
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not as warm as I expected, but still adequate. Good zipper.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
