Hi! I am looking for a sleeping bag for my son. He gets very frustrated because he is 6' 5" tall, and most bags don't even make it past his shoulders. Can you recommend a bag for a tall, athletic young man? He wouldn't want it to be rated for very cold temperatures, and I don't think he would want a mummy bag. Any advise you have would be appreciated!
@caoliver thanks for reaching out with help on this one; it can be super frustrating to not find a product that fits. We've pulled together a list of options and will highlight a few for you specifically to consider:
We hope this helps get you started; don't hesitate to reach out with additional questions!
@caoliver I 100% recommend a down quilt. I switched a couple of years ago and now I have three or four quilts for a multitude of temperatures.
The primary reason I love my quilts is that it makes turning over so easy, no need to ‘semi’wake up to ensure the down stays on top.
and down on the bottom is a waste because it is compressed it has no loft or warming capability.
That said, I do not recommend a quilt for temperatures in the single digits or lower because it becomes hard to keep cold air from sneaking in on the sides.
@caoliver I'm 6'2" and have a Nemo Tempo 20 and LOVE it. I got the long that fits up to 78" and have a good bit of extra room in the foot box.
