By: Jen Streby: Camp Buyer | June 13, 2022

 

We’ve all experienced a bad sleeping bag. Maybe it was old, smelly, and scratchy. Maybe it was too short, leaving your chest and shoulders cold. Maybe the zippers snagged, trapping you inside it. Regardless, it’s easy to point out a bad sleeping bag. What’s more complicated is figuring out what the best sleeping bags are. That’s why we’ve devoted so much effort to put together this list of the best sleeping bags on the market right now. Every sleeping bag on this list is warm, comfortable, and packable. But they vary when it comes to the subtle nuances. That’s because every camper has slightly different tastes, and there’s a bag on this list for everyone.

New This Year:

So whether this is your first sleeping bag purchase, or you’re an experienced winter camper looking to upgrade your bag, there’s a sleeping bag on this list for you. The key is sussing out which features matter to you, and which you can live without. What’s your optimal sleeping temperature? Where do you generally camp? All of these factors play a role in deciding which bag will work best for you. So we’ve done our best to compile all the pertinent information you need to make your decision in one easy-to-digest place. Now it’s just up to you to get out and camp!

Poler The Napsack

The Poler The Napsack is a couchsurfer classic. Its versatility, practicality, and overall radness have earned The Napsack a permanent place in the pantheon of dirtbag high fashion. Wear it out to the bonfire with the waist cinched up and the arms open, allowing free mobility for dance moves and beverage consumption. When things start to wind down, drop the bottom hem for the warmer and more tranquil vibes of lounge mode, and when it's time to head back to the tent, just cinch up the bottom, zip up the arms, and send it straight to Dreamland. The Poler Napsack is one of the prime instigators of sleeping bag jealousy, so stop wishing, and make your dreams of comfort a reality.

Jen Streby

Hi! My name is Jen, and I grew up loving the outdoors, traveling to our family cabin every summer in Michigan where I got to spend time in lakes, rivers, and the woods. I grew apart from that as I traveled throughout the U.S. searching for what I call home until I moved to Utah in 2008 and became an avid backpacker and river rafter. From then on, it’s been a passion I seek out when the weather is a bit warmer here in the PNW.

I now call Washington home and have been here for 6 years. I started working for evo 2 days after my move up from Portland and have loved every minute of it. I’ve been a buyer for a couple of categories and then was tasked with bringing on our camp category several years ago. It’s been a wild ride and I’m stoked to be able to share my love for the outdoors with all our evo family.
