Jack Wolfskin grow up sleeping bag


This sleeping bag strikes a pretty perfect balance between value and quality. It’s a summer weight, synthetic sleeping bag for kids, designed with their first few years of adventures in mind. Those first trips are likely to be limited to the warmer months, and the microguard insulation here is more than up to that job. The bag extends from 140-170cm, so an investment now will pay off over a few years as they grow. The extra length is concealed in a zippered enclosure in the foot, and provides additional insulation to keep smaller legs cosy. There’s an internal pocket (useful for torches or cuddly toys) and a fully adjustable hood. The outer fabric is easily wiped down and whole thing is machine washable. We’ve discovered that part of successful camping with our daughter is showing her she has equivalent gear to us – this is a fully-fledged summer bag she really enjoys. It’s not very lightweight at about 700g, but it is superb value at this price and will last a few years.  DL
