I like to be outside, away from people. I groove better with nature and animals. I used to sleep in tents and even just on the ground in a sleeping bag, but a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I was introduced to van camping, and have been hooked ever since.
I still use sleeping bags though, inside my van and outside, and always have one with me. So I got myself one from Slumberjack, the Wheeler Lake 20 degree bag.
Upon first look I’m impressed with a few of the features, like the 2 in 1 hood, can use it as a platform to take your favorite pillow from home or zip it up like a hood tight around your head.
I also like the large area at the bottom, this gives you the ability to keep your toes up. The zippers are a bright color to help you find them quick, but I’ll be honest, I got my zipper stuck on the fabric a few times and had to back my way down to get “unstuck.”
I have problems zipping my jacket on, so I really can’t say if this is a flaw on their end, or I’m just zipper challenged (pretty sure it’s me …). It does come rolled up inside a stuff sack, making it easy to grab.
I’ll be heading to the mountains soon and I can put it through the works than to see how she holds up. As you can see, when I tested it out in my van, my pup likes the bag, he always finds his way to the comfy spots …
