As an experienced outdoors enthusiast who has spent over 15 years wild camping in some pretty demanding environments, I can appreciate the importance of a good night's sleep in the wild. Whilst I love being lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature around me, from leaves rustling in the wind, the hooting of an owl, or the rhythmic sound of a stream, I would say that having the right sleeping bag is the most crucial thing to ensure warmth, safety, and comfort. With so many sleeping bags available on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your needs. That’s why we’ve rounded up our top picks along with some key factors to consider when selecting a sleeping bag Read on to discover which sleeping bags are worth considering for your next outdoor adventure.
Unlike a lot of other review sites online that create listicles without ever having laid eyes on (let alone used or tested) the tents in question, we hold physical stock allowing us to thoroughly review and test each model. We also conduct customer surveys throughout the year to get feedback from people who have purchased, regularly use and have a long-term insight into reliability and performance, which also forms part of our selection process. Our reputation is extremely important to us and our list is updated throughout the year as and when we test new models and/or get additional feedback from end users.
So, read on to discover our top picks!
Our Best Buy Sleeping Bag for 2023!
The Moraine III Sleeping Bag from Robens is the most well-rounded Sleeping Bags. The synthetic insulation means that unexpected downpours will not infiltrate your cover for an evening in the outdoors. This bag is made of premium materials but without costing an arm and a leg! We loved how lightweight it felt when packed down yet still provided decent insulation and heat retention. The outer shell is made of a durable ripstop polyester fabric, which enhances resistance to tears and abrasions, ensuring the sleeping bag can withstand the rigours of more than occasional use. If you're looking for the best sleeping bag then the Robens Moraine III is our top pick and at under £100 offers incredible value for a premiumt 3-season bag!
Incredible value - warm, comfortable and well made!
We were mightily impressed with the Highlander Serenity 450, a mummy-shaped sleeping bag for all-seasons when we tested in the Scottish Highlands during late winter, early spring. So much so that we've rated it our Best Buy All-Rounder for Value. Equipped with Highlanders superior fibre fill which is designed to be durable, warm and lightweight, this sleeping bag held up well in conditions close to freezing. It is a little on the bulkier side at 2kg but retains its loft and has a nice soft touch. Anti-snag zip works really well and it packs down compactly into the stuff sack. At under £100 you won't get a better all-round all-season sleeping bag!
Great price for a lightweight bag offering decent level of warmth & mosquito net!
The Vango Zenith 75 is our top choice of sleeping bag for backpacking. Equipped with a range of innovative features to keep you comfortable on your travels. At only 1.2kg it is incredibly lightweight and ideal for stuffing in your pack, and is a generous size suitable for those up to 6ft 2in. The thoughtfully designed fleece lined stuff sack can be converted into a pillow, and there is a mosquito net at the head and foot of the bag to keep you protected. And there's a full length Two-Way Auto-Lock Zip with Zip Guard used to seal in warmth or provide ventilation, which can be used from inside the bag. This is a 1-Season Sleeping Bag but the Zenith is also available in 2-Season, 3-Season, and 4-Season options. A robust and reliable choice of sleeping bag for backpacking that offers incredible value for money!
High-quality sleeping bag - perfect for festivals and beginners!
This sleeping bag from Vango is our top choice if you’re heading to a festival. A decent sleeping bag can be the difference between a decent nights sleep and freezing your way until the sun comes up, and the Vango Atlas 350 is the perfect entry-level sleeping bag to see you right. As a 3-Season Sleeping Bag the Atlas 350 is well-equipped for most temperatures but still nice and lightweight! S-Stitching holds insulating fibre in place for an even distribution across the body keeping you nice and warm. And it’s machine washable so you can easily clean it! Overall an excellent sleeping for festival goers or those taking their first foray into the world of camping.
In our opinion this is the best down sleeping bag on the market!
The Vango Cobra 600 is in our opinion the best down sleeping bag on the market offering better comfort, performance, and value for money than more expensive alternatives. Featuring a Welded Box Wall construction the ergonomically fitting design is ideally suited for camping in cold weather. Whilst we didn’t have the opportunity to test the most extreme temperature ranges, the Cobra 600 fared impressively thourgh the night just below freezing. The box-shaped baffle channels filled with down offered good loft and the down was evenly distributed, which helped keep us warm and cozy. And Vango independently test all their sleeping bags to ensure that their temperature ratings are reliably accurate. If you’re in the need for an all-season sleeping bag then the Cobra 600 is the best of the best!
Ultra-light and excellent value - ideal for warm-weather backpacking & summer camping!
If you're traveling to warmer regions you simply don’t need a costly sleeping bag that could have you overheating and take up precious pack space. That’s why our top pick is the Highlander Trekker 50 – an ultra-lightweight sleeping bag of 500g that packs down small and boasts an integrated mosquito head net to protect you from bugs while you sleep. There’s also a central zip baffle making this an ideal choice for hammock sleeping and access. At under £50 the Highlander Trekker 50 is one of the best sleeping bags for warm-weather backpacking as well as summer expeditions.
A brilliant budget sleeping bag!
If the perfect price is what you are looking for, then the Vango Atlas 250 is an excellent deal. We were really impressed with this 2-Season sleeping bag's performance - rectangular shape is roomy, yet its stow size can be quite small, and the attached hood is a plus for colder nights. While there are undoubtedly better sleeping bags out there, you won’t find any at this price. The only potential drawback was the zipper, which some found a little stiff though it is far from the worst we’ve tested (and generally better than most other budget sleeping bags) and might just need some care when opening and closing to avoid any issues. It is made from a breathable polyester, which keeps the bag light, affordable and machine washable.
A soft to touch Polair® brushed fabric makes this the most comfortable sleeping bag!
If its comfort you’re looking for in a sleeping bag then the Vango Kanto 250 is a luxurious and exceptional value bag. Our testing panel loved the soft-touch Polair® brushed fabric over more traditional feel associated with polyester fabrics. It’s a 2-3 Season Sleeping Bag and warmth is aided by the single layer construction, which helps to reduce cold spots by ensuring an even distribution of fill. Further benefits include an integrated head rest for extra comfort and auto-lock zip system to prevent the bag from opening during your night’s sleep. And at 1.8kg it’s not too heavy either!
Only 700g and the best lightweight down sleeping bag we've tested!
When it comes to backpacking, fastpacking, and bikepacking, finding the best lightweight sleeping bag is a must! The Vango Cobra 200 offers the best weight to warmth ratio out of all the sleeping bags we’ve tested; and in our opinion is the best down sleeping bag on the market. This is largely owing to the ingenious design trickery (Welded Box Wall construction, box shaped baffle), and solid quality filling – Premium 90/10 700 Fill Power Goose Down, which has been ethically sourced. For a lightweight sleeping bag that won't let you down and will handle cold reasonably well, this is a winner.
Great value double sleeping bag!
The Highlander Sleepline 250 is an extremely impressive double sleeping bag for UK campers. The double sleeping bag uses the Highlander’s synthetic insulation that uses a hollow fibre construction to minimise weight and maximise warmth. Ideally suited for use in summer and camper vans this is the perfect sleeping bag when you want to cosy up with your partner on an adventure!
