My Review of Coleman Harbor King Size Sleeping Bag: 20 Deg.

Originally submitted at Dick's Sporting Goods

The Coleman® Harbor™ sleeping bag brings you a huge, king-size design that's filled with 5-lbs of DuPont® Hollofil® 808 insulation. It's crafted with a cotton shell and a soft cotton flannel liner.

Nice & Rommy But Not Built for Cold

What Is Your Gear Style: Comfort Driven

I bought this for a 33-day trip in May through the desert southwest. Camp sites ranged from low to high elevation. At higher elevations when nighttime temperatures were 30-40 degrees (F), this bag seriously under performed. I shivered all night despite wearing several layers of clothing. This is supposed to be a 20 degree bag! At lower elevations and higher temperatures (50F+) this was a very comfortable bag. The flannel inside is soft. The zippers are top quality. I loved all the extra room of the king-size bag, but its inability to keep me warm at moderately low temperatures means it won't be getting much use on my serious camping trips. May take it along for the dog to sleep in. Not recommended below 50 degrees.
