Coleman Andover 4 Star Rating: Cheapism Good Pick
Where to Buy Coleman Andover

The Coleman Andover, like other cheap sleeping bags made by this well-known brand, wins applause for comfort and warmth in Coleman Andover sleeping bag reviews on Amazon. The temperature rating of 40 degrees F seems accurate, according to Coleman Andover reviews, although one camper says in a review that it failed to keep him warm during a camping trip in Yosemite. Most consumer reviews of the Coleman Andover note its convenience for indoor sleepovers and as a substitute for sheets and blanket on those nights when only the couch will do. This cheap sleeping bag is smaller than other Coleman models we researched -- it measures 75" x 33" and is ideal for children or shorter adults; most reviews reported the bag was is just the right size for the pre-teen set. As with other fold-and-roll Coleman sleeping bags, reviews also grumble that it's not the easiest to pack away or carry.

The Coleman Andover sleeping bag is stuffed with four pounds of synthetic insulation and features a polyester cover and cotton flannel liner. There's an exterior pocket and a "comfort cuff" for your face. And like its sibling models, it can zip together with another bag, is machine washable (use a commercial washer), and comes with a five-year limited warranty.

Bottom line: the Coleman Andover is a good choice for indoor use and mild weather. Kids say they're fun (at least that's what they tell the grown-ups), and the price is right. You won't be disappointed.
