Coleman Big Basin Adult Sleeping Bag Product Review

This sleeping bag is designed with big and tall people in mind, as it is wide at the chest, shoulders, and legs.

It could accommodate someone up to 6 ft 6 in tall and would fit a person weighing over 225lbs. If you are concerned about size, then this larger sleeping bag might be the best fit.

Insulation in this sleeping bag is enhanced by Coletherm hollow polyester, with the bag able to keep you warm in temperatures as low as 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat retention is also increased by the use of Thermolock draft tubes, which prevent the heat from escaping between gaps in the zipper.

For additional warmth, the sleeping bag also has fleece foot, which simply means there is extra material at the bottom of the bag. This material keeps the feet warm, which will increase the overall body temperature.

However, as is expected with a large sleeping bag, it may be quite bulky when rolled up and stuffed into a backpack. It could potentially be used as a two-person sleeping bag, but it would still take up quite a bit of space in a backpack. It does compress to around 1/3 of its full size if you use a compression sack, but these are sold separately, which is not ideal.
