It s 100% polyester, from the shell to the lining and filling.

Considering it’s size, it is relatively light at under 5lbs but most people using it are likely to be camping with a vehicle since a double is not normally considered a hiking sleeping bag and therefore weight is not really an issue.

It doubles up as a duvet by completely unzipping it and laying it out flat. Really handy for those warmer nights.

Pro’s and cons

The Good:

  • Large enough for a couple and a small child
  • Comfortably fits people up to around 6ft 3in tall
  • Fraction of the price of a comparable down sleeping bag

The Bad:

  • As already mentioned, too heavy for backpackers
  • The shape does leave you vulnerable to drafts, so you’ll need to tuck yourself in tightly on cold nights

Should you buy this sleeping bag?

Clearly, a double sleeping bag is targeted towards couples or parents with kids who are going to be camping in roughly zero+ degrees. Given the brief, the Kelty Callisto 15 Degree Rectangular Synthetic Sleeping Bag is a good option that fits the bill and a very nice price makes it a really tempting offer. The downsides are not really specific to this bag, rather they would be apparent on any other bag of this type.
