The first in our line-up is the Sleepingo Double Sleeping Bag and it’s almost too good to be true. It’s lightweight enough for backpacking, comfy, spacious, affordable, and it’s got even more tricks up its sleeve.
The Sleepingo Double Sleeping Bag is made from a soft inner lining with synthetic fill and a polyester outer shell. The outer shell is durable and water-repellent while the inner lining is very cozy on your skin. The overall build quality is excellent and it comes with a lifetime warranty if anything was to go wrong.
The synthetic insulation does a good job of keeping you warm but not as warm as its rating of 32°F. You’re likely to get cold in this sleeping bag if the temperatures drop below 40-45°F, so it’s an ideal summer/late spring/early autumn bag, but it’s certainly not for anything colder.
Another great thing about this double sleeping bag is that you can split it into 2 separate sleeping bags. There is no need to own two singles and a double, this double has your back when you need a single for a solo adventure.
Overall, this is an awesome 2-3 season double sleeping bag that does everything you need it to. Just don’t take it out when it’s too cold.
The Ohuhu Double Sleeping Bag is another great budget option for summer campers who aren’t braving temperatures below 45°F. It’s light enough for backpacking at just over 6lbs and is comfy as hell to sleep in.
The Ohuhu is made from a soft TC fabric lining and a water-resistant 210T polyester with a cotton fill for insulation. The inner lining is lovely to sleep in while the polyester keeps all the dirt and water out and the cotton keeps you warm.
The polyester shell is noisy while you move around, you’ll certainly notice it, and perhaps wake up because of it. The cotton fill doesn’t quite do the job of keeping you warm down to 32°F but, if you stick around 45°F you should be fine.
Like the Sleepingo above, the Ohuhu also splits into two singles when you need it to. But, unlike the Sleepingo, the Ohuhu doesn’t have a lifetime warranty and lacks the same build quality. You may find threads coming undone quite quickly and the zippers catching a lot.
The TETON Sports Mammoth takes things up a notch or two in terms of performance, design, and price. You can pick from the +20°F/-7°C (featured) or the 0°F/-18°C depending on the weather you’ll be camping in.
The Mammoth is spacious, warm, soft, comfy, and durable. It’s so durable that it comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s made from a Taffeta shell with a cozy brushed poly-flannel lining that is filled with SuperLoft Elite™ Hollow Fiber insulation. It sounds like a recipe for warmth doesn’t it, well it sure is.
There are also clever little additions like the mummy hood, heavy-duty snag-free zippers, and draft tubes that make sleeping in the Mammoth an even more pleasant, warm, and comfy experience overall.
There are of course some downsides. The Mammoth is heavy, and at 16lbs this sleeping bag is not going hiking with you. It’s for car camping only, especially as you cant split it into two to share the weight.
Overall it’s a great double sleeping bag that will even keep you warm through the winter but it is limited to car camping.
The Coleman Tandem does exactly what it says it does, there are no surprises here. It’s a great choice for anyone looking for an affordable double sleeping bag for temperatures down to 45°F and no further.
It’s quite light at 9.5 lbs plus you can split it into 2 singles, making hiking with it even easier as you can share the weight. However, the quilted design doesn’t help it to pack down small, and it is, therefore, a little bulky for the trail.
The Tandem is spacious, soft, and comfy. It’s designed for people up to 6’4″ so one size pretty much fits all in this case. It comes with a detachable sheet for extra layering when you need it. Some have found this sheet to end up being more restrictive than useful, so it might be an idea to detach it and use it as a blanket layer instead.
It comes with quality snag-free zippers and is designed to be easy to stuff away. So you won’t have to wrestle with it, ever.
Overall, it’s a simple, effective, machine washable double sleeping bag that is durable and affordable. Very Coleman style.
The TETON Sports Tracker double sleeping bag pretty much hits all the nails on the head. Its price, design, and quality all match up to be one of the best double sleeping bags we could find.
It’s made using a brushed micro polyester lining that is silky on your skin and a tough diamond ripstop shell that protects you from dirt and moisture. In between the two is lofty microfiber insulation that keeps you warm down to 5°F.
It’s not just the materials that will keep you warm, it’s the design too. There are individual mummy hoods so you can cuddle with warm heads. Zipper draft tubes to stop warm air from getting out. And vaulted foot boxes to keep your toes toasty. The design and build are spots on.
The Tracker is also light for a double sleeping bag, weighing just over 8lbs, ideal for backpacking or car camping. The only annoying thing about it is getting it back into the stuff sack. Some people seem to struggle with this, but with some practice, it does become an easy task.
Overall the Tracker’s warmth to price to weight to comfort ratio is pretty incredible and if you don’t mind spending a bit more you’ll end up with one of the best double sleeping bags out there.
The Big Agnes Dream Island 15 is designed for any of you backpackers out there who want to be able to snuggle up in comfort with your partner.
Weighing just 7lbs 9 oz. it’s light for a double and it’ll keep you warm down to 15°F, covering most wintery outings. It’s worth remembering that this rating is based on using a 0°F sleeping pad though.
The Dream Island 15 is durable, spacious, and comfy. It’s made with a soft cotton and polyester lining, a water-resistant rip-stop nylon shell, and is insulated with FireLine MAX Synthetic Insulation, 50% of which uses recycled materials. It’s also full of some awesome design features.
On the bottom, you have a flex-pad sleeve that sticks to your sleeping pads like a fitted sheet so you don’t roll off in the night. There’s a vaulted foot box for extra warmth, dual anti-snag zippers on each side for individual temperature control, a pillow barn so your pillows don’t slip off, cinch hoods, and a no draft collar. They really did think of everything with this one.
The only downsides are the price, and that it is very thin on the bottom. You’re going to have to use some excellent sleeping pads to ensure you stay toasty and comfortable.
The Agemore Double Sleeping Bag is another budget sleeping bag that does a great job in temperatures down to around 45℉ but no further. It’s therefore ideal for late spring, summer, and early autumn, but it’s not for anything more than that.
It’s quite a simple sleeping bag that is made from great materials but lacks all the additional design features you’d get with a more expensive double sleeping bag.
It’s made using a soft flannel cotton lining that is delicious on your skin, along with a water-resistant, durable 210T polyester shell. Between these two layers is a high-level 3D synthetic fiber insulation to keep you toasty.
You can split the bag into two singles when you need to and with a total weight of 7lbs, it’s certainly a good budget backpacking option. The only downside is that it’s not so spacious and you might feel a bit constrained with two of you in there.
Overall it’s a solid, no-frills, 2/3 season double sleeping bag that’s pretty affordable, but there are better ones out there.
If you and your partner take backpacking to the extreme, then the only double sleeping bag for you is the NEMO Tango Duo. It’s incredibly light and weighing just 2lbs 10 oz, you’re barely going to even notice it’s in your backpack.
The Tango Duo is the only double sleeping bag in the review to use down insulation, making it much lighter and packable. It’s not just any down though, it’s premium 650 FP hydrophobic responsibly-sourced down, so you know every bird had a good life.
The Tango Duo also features a waterproof and breathable foot box to keep your feet not only warm but dry. There is a double hood at the top to keep your head warm, and a blanket fold to ensure your face is always met with the soft inner lining.
It features a backless design to save weight and comes with a sheet that stretches snugly over two 20” sleeping pads to create a non-slip bed beneath you. This does mean you’ll need to have some quality sleeping pads to stay warm though.
Overall, this is an ideal double sleeping bag for any backpacking enthusiasts. But, as with all ultralight gear, you have to be willing to spend a bit more.
The most important thing when camping is staying warm while you’re sleeping. Every sleeping bag in the world comes with a temperature rating and you need to make sure to pick one that can handle the temperatures you intend to camp in. The ratings can split into two; comfort and lowest limit. The comfort rating is based on the average temperature a cold person would be comfy in, and the lowest-limit is based on the average temperature a warm person would be ok to sleep in.
All the double sleeping bags in the review have the temperature ratings included and the lower limits range from 0-45°F. This pretty much covers all seasons, so pick one that’s right for you. Most of them are 3 season sleeping bags which is all most of us really need, but if you’re into winter camping, you’ll need to for a 4 season one.
As a general rule, always pick a sleeping bag that goes at least 5-10°F below the temperatures you’ll be camping in.
There are two main types of insulation material used in double sleeping bags; down & synthetic. They both have their advantages but down is the clear winner, except if it gets wet.
Down is warmer, lighter, and compresses to a much smaller size than synthetic insulation. This means you’ll get a warmer sleeping bag that is lighter and has a smaller pack size. If you’re an avid backpacker, then down is the insulation for you, just don’t let it get wet. Once down is soaked, it loses all its insulating properties and takes a long time to dry out, so be sure to keep it dry.
Synthetic insulation is warm and much more affordable but it is heavier and bulkier than down. The best thing about it is that it still provides insulation when damp and it’ll dry out quickly.
There really is no point in getting a double sleeping bag if it’s not going to fit you and your partner in it comfortably. Luckily, all the double sleeping bags in the review are spacious and will fit two regular-sized adults with ease. If you’re unsure, you can always check the dimensions to make sure there is enough space.
The double sleeping bags in the review have a huge weight range from 2.5 lbs to over 16 lbs. It’s worth considering how you’re going to use your double sleeping bag. Is it for backpacking or car camping? If you’re car camping then the weight isn’t an issue, but if you’re backpacking, a 16lb sleeping bag is a no-go. Make sure you pick a double sleeping bag that works for all your intended camping adventures.
Some of the double sleeping bags in the review split into 2 singles. This is incredibly useful as you will only need one sleeping bag for all your couple and solo adventures. It also means you can split the weight when backpacking on the trail.
There are some downsides though. A double sleeping bag that splits into two singles has a lot more weak points in terms of insulation and you’ll notice all the ones that do split are only comfy to around 45°F.
The best double sleeping bag if you’re on a budget is the Sleepingo Double Sleeping Bag. It’s spacious, comfy, light, durable, splits into 2 singles, warm to around 45°F, and comes with a lifetime warranty. You can’t ask for much more from a sleeping bag that is this affordable.
The all-round best double sleeping bag is the TETON Sports Tracker. If you’re looking for an affordable, durable, light, and comfy sleeping bag to take you comfortably down to temperatures around 5°F, the Tracker is it. It’s light enough for backpacking, warm enough for cold nights, and made to last.
The best double sleeping bag for backpacking is the NEMO Tango Duo. At under 3lbs in weight, it’s hard to find a lighter double sleeping bag to throw into a backpack. Not only is it light, but it’s also filled with the coziest of responsibly sourced down for extra warmth. Plus it comes with extra features like a waterproof but breathable foot box, hood, and a silky soft inner lining.
