The Best Sleeping Bag
Updated Dec 11, 2022
The adage “you get what you pay for” is as true today as ever, but with a few exceptions—one being sleeping bags. You simply don’t need to overpay to get a bag that’s comfortable and functional, whether for car camping, backpacking, or camping with kids. After more than 100 hours of research, considering 150 models, and dragging 34 bags through the wilds of California, Hawaii, and Colorado, we think the REI Co-op Siesta 25 Sleeping Bag is the best for basic camping—and we have picks for the best backpacking and double sleeping bags too.
