A great value for campers and backpackers alike, the synthetic REI Polar Pod sleeping bag is priced for your budget, yet it's still feature-packed and built to last.

  • Features

    • Synthetic hollow-fiber insulation retains heat while providing loft and some compressibility; construction eliminates cold spots
    • Equally distributed insulation all the way around the bag accommodates the multiposition sleeper
    • Relaxed fit from the shoulders to the hips increases comfort by providing ample space to move around
    • Ripstop nylon shell resists water and abrasion; smooth nylon taffeta lining is comfortable against your skin
    • Shell fabric is treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish to repel moisture and stains
    • Contoured hood, insulated full-face muffler, full draft collar and full-length draft tube with ground-level seams keep body heat in and cold air out
    • Pillow pocket keeps camp pillow in place; stuff clothing inside pocket if you don't have a pillow
    • The REI Polar Pod sleeping bag has an external chest pocket that stows your watch, glasses or other small essentials
    • Differentiated drawcords (1 round, 1 flat) let you adjust hood and neck easily in the dark
    • Full-length of zipper is backed by wide, antisnag binding tape
    • Any REI backpacking bag can be zipped to any other REI backpacking bag because of the consistent 63 in., No. 5, YKK zipper; women's bags zip on the right, men's on the left
    • Pad loops provide attachment points to keep your sleeping bag and pad together to avoid rolling off onto the cold ground (straps and sleeping pad sold separately)
    • Includes stuff sack and storage bag
    • European Norm (EN) is an independent third-party temperature rating, allowing accurate comparisons across brands with other EN-rated bags


    Many sleeping bags are rated for temperature by an independent testing protocol. REI and the broader industry now use the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 23537 protocol, which improves on the older European Norm (EN) 13537 standard; you may still see older items in our assortment that were only EN tested. With either protocol, each bag gets a Comfort (or T-Comfort) rating and Lower Limit (or T-Limit) rating. The Comfort rating is the lowest temperature at which the bag will keep the average "cold sleeper" comfortable, and the Lower Limit rating is the lowest temperature at which the bag will keep the average "warm sleeper" comfortable. Ratings are based on a person wearing one long underwear layer and a pair of socks, sleeping on an insulated surface with a minimum R-value of 5.38. Many brands use the Comfort rating for women's bags and the Lower Limit rating for men's and unisex bags. Everyone's body and sleep comfort differ, and conditions of use (posture, clothing, sleeping pad R-value, wind, humidity, etc.) affect total insulation, so EN and ISO ratings are intended as a guideline to help you compare products, rather than a guarantee of warmth.
