Coleman North Rim 0-Degree Mummy Bag Review

A mummy-style bag with more than three pounds of fill, the Coleman North Rim may not keep you warm enough on the very coldest of nights but seems to work for temperatures well below freezing. Campers like the comfort and price, although some say it's a bit too much bag for backpacking.

Despite its billing as a four-season bag, Coleman North Rim Mummy Bag reviews say three seasons is more accurate. The company puts the minimum rating at 10 degrees, but users posting reviews on Campmor say they wouldn't rely on it below 20 degrees. Still, it wins points in sleeping bag reviews for overall comfort and easy roll-up. On Amazon users praise the workmanship and zipper, but one camper posting a review on the company website says the zipper came apart after just two nights. Some users happily take this discount Coleman mummy bag on hunting and camping trips -- it seems popular with scouts -- although others find it too heavy and bulky for backpacking. The low price enhances its appeal.

The Coleman North Rim Mummy Bag (starting at $40, Amazon) measures 82"x32", long enough for someone up to 6'2". The slightly boxy shape where your feet go is less confining than traditional mummy bag shapes and much appreciated by taller campers. The bag holds 60 ounces of Coletherm fill (a proprietary product) and features a polyester outer shell and lining, sculpted hood, and two-way zipper. It comes with a stuff stack, which some users say is too small.

Most consumers like the value for the money. And if you can avoid camping outdoors in extreme weather conditions, this discount sleeping bag will serve you well.
