Coleman Tandem Double Sleeping Bag Review – For Big and Tall
Camping – one of the world’s favorite pastimes. No matter whether you prefer to camp in the backwoods of a deep forest park or the not-so-remote area of your own backyard, you will likely find yourself in need of two things (besides the tent, of course). You will need a good, warm sleeping bag like the Coleman Tandem Double Sleeping Bag.
If you’re camping, there is no better way to share the experience than to cuddle up with your partner in a cozy double sleeping bag. A double-wide sleeping bag is not only more practical, as it helps you to conserve body heat, but it’s a lot more cozy, too. If you’re in the market for the best double sleeping bag, consider our review of the Tandem by Coleman.
Coleman Double Sleeping Bag – Features and Benefits
This double sleeping bag has a unique 3-in-1 design that allows it to be zipped apart into two separate sleeping bags if the need arises. It is stuffed with Coletherm hollow polyester insulation, a unique Coleman feature, that allows you to stay warm in temperatures down to 45 degrees Fahrenheit (and this isn’t factoring in body heat from your sleeping buddy, either).
The bag also has a “ComfortCuff,” which encases the back of your head in soft, warm fabric so that there is no need to tote a pillow. It even has an additional built-in detachable sheet to provide additional layering options. A blue removable liner makes it comfortable to use in warmer weather, and also easy to wash in a standard washing machine. You won’t need to hand-wash it.
The sleeping bag also comes equipped with a unique ZipPlow system, which pulls away fabric to prevent snagging during zipping. If you’ve ever found yourself struggling to zip up your sleeping bag in the middle of the night, growing more frustrated by the minute as the material bunches and rips, then this sleeping bag is a good choice for you. No frustration here!
Finally, this double sleeping bag has a Roll Control design and Quick Cord system. While this terminology sounds fancy, it essentially just means that the bag comes with a convenient way to store your gear. It comes with an additional stuff sack to make it easy to roll it up, fasten it, and carry it with you wherever you go – the bag even has a carry handle. When rolled up, the bag is about fifteen inches tall, fifteen inches long, and twenty-two inches wide, and weighs less than ten pounds.
