A few months ago I won third place in the Coleman® Heritage Essay Contest hosted by the Outdoor Blogger Network. My prizes included the Coleman® Instant Tent 4, two Adjustable Comfort Big and Tall Sleeping bags, a Quad 4 LED Lantern, and a stainless steel 54-quart cooler. Needless to say, I am thrilled and honored to have had my essay chosen by the fine folks at Coleman®.
I recently took a week-long vacation to the Bitteroot Valley in MT. I packed my old Coleman® tent since it packed flatter than the new tent (and the airlines wants a small fortune for each piece of luggage checked). I did, however, take one of my new Adjustable Comfort Sleeping bags.
Coleman® got it right on this sleeping bag, just as they do with all of their gear. They included a sheet for an inner liner and zippers that give you several options to configure your bag for different levels of warmth. The Adjustable Comfort Sleeping bag boasts some of the widest comfort ratings in the industry with a range of 30°F to 70°F.
The layering features of this sleeping bag made it very comfortable, even for the changing conditions as the night progressed. When I'd first lay down at night it would be too warm for anything except a sheet. Then, just like adding blankets throughout the night, as the temperatures dropped I would simply pull another layer on to stay toasty warm.
- Coleman® comfort range, 30°F to 70°F

- The sleeping bag for any weather condition - multiple layers so you can make yourself comfortable

- Unzip divided cover completely, lightweight sheet for warm nights
- Integrated pillow pad design keeps head on bag and bag off face
- All weather sleeping
- No snag patented zipper
- Five year warranty
On a scale of 1 to 10 I will rate the Adjustable Comfort a 9.5. Don't get me wrong - for my uses, this bag deserves a 10. I'm giving a slightly lower score for backpackers and others who need a very small rolling sleeping bag because it's not that. However, I'm sure the pack-ability could be greatly improved with a good stuff sack to cinch the rolled bag down tighter.
I will be providing reviews for the rest of the fabulous gear I won, and I'd like to again say Thank You to Coleman® and the Outdoor Blogger Network for providing us with the wonderful contest.
