Teton Sports Mammoth Sleeping Bag Review and #Giveaway

TETON Sports
        When I was younger we used to camp at least two times a month.  It is one of my favorite childhood memories and honestly one of the only quality times we had spent as a family.  Although Michigan doesn't allow for a long summer season, you will find us outdoors six out of seven nights a week and from the first remotely warm day (above 60 degrees outside) to the first day of snow camping or participating in outdoor sports if we can.  Our falls are perfect camping and bonfire weather.


        When you decide to truly camp it means accepting all sorts of weather conditions that could potentially happen.  When we camped as a family, I was always the first one booted from the campers into the tents with my friends of course because we were the oldest.  There were always nights where it would rain or the temperature would drop pretty low and all we had was layers upon layers of blankets to keep us warm.

        Although we stayed warm it was fairly uncomfortable to sleep with that much bedding in a small tent let alone to manage anything else like clothing in the tent.  Now as a married adult camping, my husband and I tend to share a sleeping bag.  Even though I truly love to cuddle with him, I also don't want to sleep on top of him to stay covered or warm!

        On our recent trip to Camp Sandusky, we were able to finally share a sleeping bag AND feel as though we were still sleeping alone ALL because of Teton Sports!  Previously, Teton Sports and I worked together on reviewing one of their Rolling Duffle Bags and this time around they graciously agreed to send me their Mammoth 0°F Sleeping Bag to review!

        This sleeping bag is the bomb!  Honestly it has quilting  throughout and "cushioning around zipper and shoulder to keeps drafts out".  Built for two or more people it has three sided zippering for easy access from either side.  Luckily for a family like us (since we let our children sleep in our own bed) this is roughly the size of a queen mattress so we can even fit one of the little ones if we want!

        Best of all there is a Oxford Compression Sack with Drawstring Closure to hold the sleeping back when not in use!  THIS IS GREAT!  I cannot stand trying to roll a sleeping bag and transporting it only to have it fall apart and become more of a pain that it is worth!  I even love the "mummy style" hood which holds my pillow in place as I sleep since there is nothing I hate more than my pillow getting dirty or touching the ground - plus I tend to roll around while sleeping!

        Teton Sports "was started in 2005 in Utah with a very long not-to-do list as opposed to the traditional to-do list. We do just a few things, but we try hard to do them well."  Their short but great list of products include sleeping bags, tents, bags/backpacks, cots, and a variety of accessories.

Available to purchase/Cost:  $199 Amazon or Sportsmans Warehouse
Recommendation:  This is going to last a long time and is at a great price for such an awesome investment!  I cannot believe how comfortable this is and worth every penny!  This would make a great gift idea for the outdoorsy person in your life.  I can't wait to go camping now (even in the cold)!

  2. Fantastic sleeping bag. I always feel cramped in a sleeping bag and I am borderline petite (I have not found this size in stores!) I am a bit claustrophobic so this would be perfect!

  3. My grandsons would love sleeping in this together! Would be perfect for a camping trip!

  4. I have only done a little tent camping, my idea of camping is Holiday Inns and Marriotts, but my boys take their families camping alot, tent camping and my granddaughters are sleeping in a old sleeping bag that my son had back when he was in the boy scouts, I bet they would love a soft sleeping bag like this one. You kids look cute in it makes the bag look really huge I like that you involve your family in your reviews .. Thanks for sharing this information on this sleeping bag from Teton Sports.

  5. Very nice! Looks like the kids have loads of fun with this sleeping bag! Would be such a great piece of camping gear to have.

  6. I wish I'd had this the last time I went camping. This is a deluxe sleeping bag! The pillow cover is a great idea, because no matter how you try, the inside of the tent will always get dirt tracked in. I like that the bag is so big yet made of materials that keep you toasty warm, while allowing airflow. Looks great for family camping. The shoulder cushioning had to be great, too. No feelings of freezing despite being covered when your shoulders and neck area are kept warm. Thank you for the great review and the adorable kid pics!

  7. We go camping a couple times a year and I would love to have one of these for hubby and me. We always end up bundled into our our cocoons, individually wrapped up and isolated! With one this big all three of us may end up in there!

  9. This sleeping bag sounds awesome! I like that it has a 3 sided zipper. It would be perfect for me and my partner. We like to cuddle but like you we want our own space when we sleep.

  10. WE camp sometimes and what a wonderful thing it would be to have this. Do you think the baffling is good? We have three sleeping bags, two are down and one is some man-made material. They are all pretty warm. What temperature does this one say it goes down to?

  15. Hubby and I often camp out in the summer,even if it's in our yard. It just feels nice to sleep under the stars. We currently do not have a nice bag, so we often pile up blankets to not be directly on the ground. It would be so nice to have this huge bag to be able to keep warm with hubby beside me. This mammoth bag is an excellent idea for couples :)

  34. I never really liked sleeping bags because I always felt so trapped from the narrow confinement. No room to spread out. With this bag, not only can you spread out, you can share with others. It is a great idea and looks well built, not cheap.

  35. This would work great for our fly in for our RC airplane club we blong to for our Autism Fly-in..... We'd only have to take one instead of two.... Save some room for planes!!! :-)

This sleeping bag would be perfect for us to relax and talk and look at the stars.

  53. The size is fantastic but I also really like that it has "cushioning around zipper and shoulder to keeps drafts out." There is nothing worse than having a chilly draft seeping in around the zipper!
