Rated for use between -20 and -29 degrees Celsius and with an offset dual lining to combat cold patches it promises to give you a warm nights’ sleep.

The hood can be adjusted for your comfort with the option to turn it inside out allowing you to choose between a flat and a contoured hood.

At this low price, the lining is of course synthetic and it’s not really a “hiking” sleeping bag due to the relative heaviness of over 6 pounds.

Pro’s and cons

The pros:

  • The Slumberjack Latitude is reasonably affordable at under $100 in most places.
  • The offset lining does work well in helping reduce cold spots from gaps etc.
  • Good reliable construction, well made.

The Cons:

  • Experienced campers will be aware of this, but it should be noted that very few cold weather sleeping bags such as this can keep you warm all by themselves. You will need to layer up on clothing or blankets to take this to a true -20 rating.
  • Too heavy to hike with – should not be considered a hiking sleeping bag.

Should you buy this sleeping bag?

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced cold weather bag for maybe a family camping trip, or a trip where you will have other luxuries such as blankets and extra clothing close by, then this will be the one for you. Depending on the area of the country you live in (or spend most of your time camping in) this will mainly be a winter-only sleeping bag and will be too hot if the temperatures start hitting above zero degrees.
