Waterproof sleeping bag
This is a review of the Coleman REI Warm Plus. It is a good backpack for summer camping trips and regular camping trips. Many other companies have backpacks like this one, but none are quite as well constructed, and light. Coleman is known for making high quality backpacks. This one has a lot of value for its price tag.
The Coleman REI Warm Plus is a great winter camping bag for backpackers. This is a backpack that will last through a lot of use. It uses a revolutionary double shell membrane that keeps moisture out while also providing excellent insulating properties. This sleeping bag uses down fill for insulation to achieve a -10 degree Fahrenheit insulation and a weight of just 17 ounces, which is just below the average weight for a backpack. However, not too much in the lower -10 degree Fahrenheit range will be too light.
There are other waterproof sleeping bags with down filling, but these tend to be on the heavy side and bulky, taking up more space and using more weight to hold them together. Coleman’s line also includes a line of extremely lightweight backpacks with extreme weather-resistant fabrics. These can go just about anywhere and provide extreme performance, although the lightweight models may not hold up as well under higher temperatures. In addition, these lightweight models have smaller sizes so they aren’t as comfortable as larger models.
One of the best aspects of Coleman’s waterproof sleeping bags is the design of their down filling. Coleman developed its own goose down which is completely dry and odorless. What makes goose down unique is that it doesn’t collect lint or dust and it retains heat so well that when you lay it flat it stays warm for a long time. Goose Down is used in many other brands, but Coleman’s dry duck down takes the top spot. Even the toughest and most expensive synthetic down products don’t compare to the warmth and comfort provided by Coleman’s 100% goose down product line.
Another great feature of Coleman’s best waterproof sleeping bags is that all of their bags are lined with ultra high tech material called Powercasts. Powercasts are incredibly tough and waterproof, and they keep your temperature extremely stable. This is important because most people sleep on the coldest days and keeping your temperature steady is one of the most important factors in having a comfortable sleep.
Although the Powercasts linings are tough and highly effective, Coleman’s bags list doesn’t stop there. For example, their popular daypack also uses Powercasts. The paybacks are available in several different sizes, so regardless of what your day is like you can find a lightweight bivy bag that will work for it. This is important because daypacks are meant to be carried over long distances, and the extra weight that the Powercasts give is very reassuring when you’re out hiking long distances.
Although the Powercasts lining does its job to keep your warmth safe and sound, the main attraction of any waterproof sleeping bag is its waterproofing. Most people think of waterproof sleeping bags as being made with some kind of waterproof lining. However, the real key to having a successful waterproof sleeping experience is having a waterproof inner lining and a waterproof outer shell.
What makes the Powercasts a truly remarkable sleeping bag is that they have both an inner lining that’s highly breathable and an outer shell that’s highly water resistant. This means that your bag will be ready to go in almost any weather condition, but it will keep you warm and dry at the same time. So if you’re going on a two or three day camping trip in the woods, but you only plan on staying a night or two, you don’t need to buy a super heavy goose down bag. You just need something lightweight and easily packable, like the Powercasts.
