Ozark Trail 40F Mummy Sleeping Bag Reviews

We layer a blanket between the sleeping pads and the sleeping bags for some extra insulation. When it is very cold I also use a comforter over the sleeping bags. We wear warm clothes to sleep in, including a beanie. Hand warmers in our socks and body warmers in our shirts are helpful as well. Our sleeping bags zip together, allowing us to take advantage of the shared body heat. Pairing these strategies together made it reasonably comfortable at that temperature.

If they wanted to skimp on fabric, it should have been used on the outside and bottom of the bag! Not on the interior where comfort is the main issue.

The actual product ozark trail sleeping bag may be a different color or model. I think the expensive bags are just marketing and overengineering, unless you are going to the arctic.

We began car camping with cheap Walmart sleeping bags. When we started backpacking we needed lighter more compressible sleeping bags. ozark trail sleeping bag Our first choice of bag was a failure, three years later, we have two sleeping bags each for year round camping and backpacking.

Of course, I wanted something that would keep us warm. Mummy bags are very effective for keeping warm, but I am not comfortable in a confining bag. We bought two Ozark Trail 30-Degree Sleeping Bags. Trailspace’s community of gear reviewers has field-tested and rated the top warm weather synthetic sleeping bags.

Bought this for backpacking because it is lightweight and packs small, but it is a complete waste of $45. Even with clothes, a thin liner and a fleece liner inside it, the bag could not dispel the cold. There was zero insulation properties as far as I could tell. It did not even get down to 40, more like upper 40s at the most and probably low 50s when I used it. It’s easy to use, and has an inside zipper pocket, anti-snag zipper, full neck baffle, and ClimaTech fiber for warmth. It’s sort of fragile, but very good for backpacking.

The bag on its own is very comfortable down to the 30-degree range. With the return of the colder weather, it is time to pull out our winter sleeping bags. Shopping for sleeping bags is overwhelming. I did a good bit of research before purchasing ours.
