It doesn’t matter if you want to go on a camping trip or if you are preparing for an emergency, a sleeping bag is something you’ll want to have on hand.
This particular sleeping bag comes in a convenient carrying bag so you don’t have to tuck it into your sack if you don’t want to. The highly visible orange fabric is great because you’ll never forget where your bedroll is if you have to wake up in the middle of the night. Let’s explore more about this bag.
Thanks to the aluminized PE interior of this sleeping bag, you can bet that on chilly nights, you’ll be nice and warm, as the material reflects your body heat. And since the inside is coated with Mylar, it is airtight and waterproof. The bag’s dimensions are 3 feet by 7 feet, so even if you are over 6 feet tall, you’ll fit comfortably inside and still have a bit of room to spare.
Another great feature of this bag is that it is made of a tear resistant material, so you don’t have to worry about getting a tear in it should you rub against something sharp in the middle of the night.
What makes this different than other sleeping bags is that it should only be used in emergency situations. The Mylar inner layer will keep you warm in chilly temperatures and it will prevent any wind from seeping in.
As an emergency sleeping bag, this works wonderfully, however it isn’t recommended that you use this as a regular, everyday sleeper. If you aren’t looking to purchase a separate bag for your survival gear and one for general use, then this may not be the bag for you.
Also, a complaint that customers have had about this particular sleeping bag is that the Mylar lining makes a lot of noise whenever you move inside.
Another possible drawback is if you do get cold and think you can just zip yourself up in the bag like a cocoon, you might want to refrain from that, as one customer said that because there is no airflow, you could easily suffocate. Also the lack of air circulating means that if you’re a hot sleeper, any moisture will build up inside the bag.
At the price of approximately $15 for two sleeping bags, it is quite a steal!
As far as emergency sleeping bags go, this particular deal is great. You receive two airtight sleeping bags that have plenty of wiggle room and can keep you warm during cold nights.
However, if you’re looking for a sleeping bag that you could use for every day camping trips and the like, you may not want to go this route. The SE Emergency Sleeping Bag will keep you warm, but remember, it is best suited for emergency situations.
