Best +20 Degree Ultralight Sleeping Bag For Camping, Hiking, Survival & Doomsday Preppers

TETON Sports TrailHead +20 Degree F Ultralight Sleeping Bag

TETON Sports TrailHead +20 Degree F Ultralight Sleeping Bag

The TETON Sports TrailHead +20 Degree F Ultralight Sleeping Bag is a warm ultra light synthetic sleeping bag that is reasonably priced. This particular bag struck the perfect balance of cost, weight, comfort and features for me. I tried a half dozen sleeping bags before settling on this one.

Why you might need it

This sleeping bag packs small and only weighs 2.9 lbs. It has PolarLite insulation that keeps you warm but is thin and not bulky. The Diamond ripstop shell is water-resistant and won't tear even if you snag or puncture it. It has a soft interior and is plenty big and comfortable for a man up to 6'-4" tall and 200 lbs. A foot box design keeps your feet comfortable and not cramped. It has inner and outer zippers for easy closure and has a drawstring hood with shoulder baffle to keep out drafts. It has an inner zippered pocket that would fit items such as a smartphone, keys, and small flashlight. It comes with a stuff bag that makes it pack approx. 8" in diameter by 18" long. This bag measures 87" Long x 32" Wide (at the shoulders) x 22" Wide (at the feet).

Added tip

Just like a back pack, a sleeping bag is something you must try out for your size and comfort. No matter what sleeping bag you end up choosing for a Doomsday survival situation, test it in your own back yard or deck first on colder nights just long enough to tell if it will keep you warm. The TETON Sports TrailHead +20 Degree F Ultralight Sleeping Bag should be comfortable to you as it is in 40 degree weather if you are sleeping in just normal underwear. It should sleep "warmer" if you are sleeping inside a tent, if you are sleeping on an air pad or neoprene pad, if you add a liner, if you put a bivy around it, if you dress warmly (i.e. thermal underwear), or if you sleep near a fire. For additional accessories, it is really better to sleep on a pad under any sleeping bag, and not directly on the earth, for both warmth and comfort. Also, if you purchase and use a liner, it is great to have because it can keep your bag cleaner on the inside and a liner is washable. A liner should make your bag warmer also, and in the summer you can sleep just in the liner on top of your bag. A skully beanie cap is another accessory that can help keep you comfortable.

Sample Amazon Feedback

"Bought two of these on sale for the wife and I almost 3 years ago and I'm really happy with them. No, I wouldn't want to spend a night in 20* weather with it, but that is the survival rating and not comfort rating. I just love how lightweight and compact is it- it's been great on spring-fall backpacking trips as it takes up little room in my pack and doesn't add much weight."

"I bought 2 of these - one for me and one for my husband. The bag is lightweight and we purchased compression sacks to help them fit in our backpacks. They are very warm and comfortable. I wouldn't go down to 20 degrees in this bag but it is fine for down to 40 with a sleeping pad."

"I really like this sleeping bag. It keeps me nice and warm, but it's not nearly as bulky as our other winter sleeping bags. The fabric is durable but it still feels nice and soft. It even has a zippered pocket on the inside which is the perfect size for a smartphone and keys. The feature I like the most is how small the sleeping bag becomes once you put it in the stuff sack...."

"Best bag I've ever used.  This bag is excellent. It's really comfortable and warm. The fabric has a nice feeling and it's very light.  Best thing is how roomy it is. The extra feet space is really noticeable.  It's probably not adequate for the advertised temperature, but for cold autumn days it's perfect."

"This bag is really light weight, would be great for backpacking. it is built well."

"This bag is awesome! It is a perfect entry level bag, light weight, compact, warm, and stylish."

"This is a solid bag for the price. It just barely meets the temperature rating - I had wool socks, long underwear, sweatpants, a t-shirt, and a sweatshirt, and I wasn't too cold to sleep, but I was cold. It was about 20 degrees out at the coldest. But the second night, it was 35 degrees, and I had to ditch my outer layer, so that's a plus."

"Awesome bag! I just barely fit into it, I'm 6'2" 210lbs. But once I'm in I love it. Don't need to wear any clothes because this thing keeps me extremely warm. Zippers are okay but sometimes they get stuck which is always frustrating in the middle of the night."
