          (Last Updated On: July 25, 2017)Going camping in late fall or early spring? The Coleman Brazos Cold-Weather Sleeping Bag may be just right for your adventure. This cold-weather sleeping bag will keep you warm when temperature outdoor drops to 20° F (-7° C). Manufacturer recommends to use the bag in temperatures from 20° to 40° F (-7° to 4° C)



          They outside of the sleeping bag is made of polyester and the inside lining is a soft tricot-knit.

          The sleeping bag is insulated with the plush insulation filling, which won’t shift due to Fiberlock Construction technology. 2-sided zipper installed in the bag is snag proof and prevents the heat from escaping.

          When it is warmer, you can just unzip the foot and create ventilation.  When it is time to pack the bag, it will be quite easy due to Roll Control System, which keeps the sleeping bag in place for easier rolling and the stuff sack makes packing and storing a piece of cake.

          This bag is recommended for people up to 5 ft 11 in (~180 cm) tall. This cold-weather sleeping bag is warm, very soft and washable in the washing machine.

          The bottom line

          This sleeping bag is obviously too heavy and bulky for a backpacking trip. Use it if you go camping by car.

          It will keep you warm, but not sweaty if the temperatures don’t exceed 50° F (10° C). If it gets warmer outside, look for another, less warm bag.

          If you feel strained in your mummy sleeping bag, this one will set you free – it gives plenty of movement freedom while sleeping.

          Some users report that it is quite tricky to stuff it to the bag, but once you practice a bit, it is a piece of cake.
