Coleman Clear Lake Warm-Weather Sleeping Bag Review


This cheap, durable rectangular sleeping bag keeps users warm when the temperatures sink to the 40s. Campers like its no-fuss features, including a cotton-flannel liner and three pounds of insulation, but say it's too bulky for backpacking.

Coleman Clear Lake Warm-Weather Sleeping Bag reviews may be few in number but those we found are decidedly positive. Users approve of the bag's overall quality, including the materials and the zipper, along with its user-friendly qualities. Sleeping Bag reviews on Amazon say it provides warmth at temperatures in the 40-degree range and the relative light weight and ease of folding are most appreciated. One review on Walmart, however, considers this model too bulky for backpacking and says the straps broke while he was rolling up the bag; a post on Slickdeals reports a snagged zipper.

The temperature rating for the Clear Lake Warm-Weather Sleeping Bag (starting at $27, Amazon) is 40-60 degrees, putting it squarely in the category of outdoor gear for late spring, early fall, and summer. It measures 75"x33", which should be good for people up to 5'11". The polyester shell and cotton flannel lining encase three pounds of fill.

This is a basic, limited-frills bag for a value price, and one best suited for car camping or slumber parties.
