Everyone needs a sleeping bag. Whether it’s for deep woods camping, sleepovers, or camping in the back yard -it’s important to have something that will keep you warm and cozy. My nephew has a new sleeping bag, or so he thinks! He’s a bit small for the sleeping bag, and can actually hide completely in it.
The new sleeping bag is a Mammoth +20F sleeping bag – not only does it sleep 2 or more, but it’s for extreme weather and cold to keep you warm during those cold nights of camping. Teton Sports sent me the Mammoth +20 F sleeping bag to review.
The Mammoth +20F sleeping bag is large, so much it definitely fits its name! Rolled up, it is almost as tall as my nephew, and weighs half as much as he does- 15 lbs!
My first thought was that the overall pack was a little large if you were packing your gear. But then I realized that it would replace 2-3 standard size sleeping bags and it would actually wind up saving us space in the vehicle!
The sleeping bag is 15 pounds, but doesn’t feel like it when you are carrying it. It’s light and easy to get to and carry. I think a lot of the easy of moving it is in the bag it comes with to pack it in. Our standard sleeping bags all roll up and it becomes a challenge to get the roll tight enough to fit it back in the sleeve they came with. The Mammoth +20F sleeping bag doesn’t have any bungees or cords to tighten around it. Instead you roll it up, slide it in its bag and use the straps on the outside of the bag to compress it. I was amazed at how easy this was to fit the sleeping back in, it was put away in less than half the time it takes for me to try to roll up a regular sleeping bag (and get ready to re-do it).
The Mammoth +20F sleeping bag is about the size of a queen size bed (it’s on a king size bed to show the overall size). It can easily fit two adults and even a child! It features three self healing independent zippers so each side can open to let someone out without disturbing the other sleeping person. It also features pillow areas for both of the sleeping areas, so your pillow wont touch the ground, and you don’t feel the cold between the sleeping bag and the ground. One of my favorite things is a simple Velcro piece by each of the side zippers, so you can zip up and “lock” the side down to keep warm.
Like the name says the Mammoth +20F will keep you warm down to 20 degrees. We live in Michigan, so it easily could drop that cold at night (although I really hope it wont while we’re camping!) This is a fantastic sleeping bag for the avid camper and great for families. It cuts down on the gear you need, helps in extreme weather situations and makes packing up the camp site so much quicker.
