Zipping sleeping bags together


I understand that many of your sleeping bags zip together.  Me and my wife are going backpacking (not too strenuous, but still back country) and would like to pick up two summer lightweight bags that zip together.  What are your recommendations?

Thanks for reaching out!

There are two things you want to look for when looking for sleeping bags that zip together:

  1. Compatible zipper styles and
  2. Zippers that are on opposite sides of the sleeping bags.

Generally speaking, men's and women's sleeping bags within a brand will have zippers that are compatible with each other. You also want to make sure that the zippers are on opposite sides (left and right). As an example, the REI Trailbreak 20 sleeping bag for men and the REI Trailbreak 20 sleeping bag for women give you options of right or left zippers. If you wanted to purchase those sleeping bags, you would want to purchase a men's right zipper sleeping bag and a women's left zipper sleeping bag.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
