Why We Like The Double Wide Sleeping Bag

With the Alps Mountaineering Double Wide 20 Degree Sleeping Bag, there's plenty of space for us and an adventure buddy to enjoy a comfortable night's sleep in the outdoors. The spacious 68-inch width also gives us room to roll over when our partner is apparently having an action-packed dream and we're caught in the crossfire. The Double Wide's 20-degree rating serves us well for three seasons of the year, and the synthetic insulation keeps us warm even if it gets wet.

  • Double wide sleeping bag with plenty of room for two campers
  • 20°F range insulated synthetically to stay warm when wet
  • Zippers on each side allow easy in and out for both campers
  • Zippered pocket stores phones or headlamps
  • Stuff sack included for neat, safe storage

Great idea just hope quality is there.

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was really excited to find this large double sleeping bag because zipping our old north face bags together hasn’t been as comfortable once you add in a kid or two. I haven’t got a chance to use this bag camping yet but I’ve had it for a few months. While putting it away the other day I saw that it was ripped a few inches along one of the seams. I’m the type that would rather sew than ship back but I was disappointed because it’s brand new and I hope it’s not a warning about the quality. I like the bag over all and am still excited to use it for car camping. I like that you can unzip and use as a single bag or zip together as a family bed. Makes great guest bedding. Comes with a big oversized bag for storage. It’s huge and bulky so keep that in mind for packing up the car.

Love this sleeping bag! I use this bag for car camping all of the time and really love it. It's soft, fluffy, and probably superfluous- perfect for car camping in the back of my Honda Element.

When we started camping more often, my husband suggested getting a double sleeping bag. This bag is awesome. We bought it last year and have used it to camp in multiple state and national parks across the country. My 6'2" husband and I both feel like there's plenty of room inside so we don't feel our movement is restricted, but it keeps us warm even on some chilly nights. Love this bag!

Fantastic!

My girlfriend and I were looking for a shared sleeping bag to use for car camping. This bag is fantastic! The inside is soft and cozy. It is a large sleeping bag, it’s truly queen size. It doesn’t pack down very small but if you think about it, it’s two sleeping bags, so it doesn’t take up too much extra space. Definitely excited to use this on our car camping trips.

I haven't used this for camping yet. Looking forward to the hunt later this month so I can use it camping. I did test it out at home and it will be perfect for myself and my husband. Very comfortable!

I got this for my husband and I to use while camping. It is very roomy and warm. Well made. Great 2 person sleeping bag.

Super Duper Warm and Huge!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The size is that of a full size bed, no joke. It's also very lofty and warm. You will certainly need a wide double pad or else you'll be sliding off throughout the night. Really pleased with the quality to price ratio here. I haven't washed the bag yet so, when I do, I will report any issues if they arise.

Massive! Also very comfortable. When you get in side, it feel more premium than what the price tag indicates.

Nice bag. Sleeps two easily with room to toss and turn. A little heavy and bulky but to be expected for a double. Warm.

Roomy, Warm and Comfortable

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently used the Alps Double Bag for the first time. It’s about the same size as an inflatable queen mattress. My wife and our three young kids can all fit in there together comfortably. On our recent trip, we used an inflatable mattress inside the tent. The temps got down into the 30s and the bag kept everyone nice and warm. It’s comfortable and packs down fairly compact inside the included stuff sack. Definitely not for back packing, but perfect for car camping with the family.

Disappointed in quality

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This bag was actually great for summer camping. We used it for a couple weeks with no problems. Good summer weight. Easy to take bags apart and use separately. Easy to pack up. However, we washed it when we returned home and it shredded down two of the seams on the front of the bag. Not sure how we will salvage this bag for future use. Disappointing as we followed wash instruction and expected this bag to last for a few years worth of summer trips.

says it is a lifetime warranty

Yes, Heather, ALPS Mountaineering has a great warranty. Check out the link below. http://www.alpsmountaineering.com/alps/warranty

I bought this as a wedding gift for a friend, and they dig it. its pretty warm at nights with another person, and as far as double sleeping bags go, its a pretty good size.

Great Sleeping bag

We bought this sleeping bag to keep in our tepui tent. We have not been disappointed! It very warm. I like that it has zippers on both sides and allows you to split them into 2 separate sleeping bags. The only downside is that it weighs 10 lbs. For this reason, it stays in the tepui at all times.

Comfy Cozy

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Great sleeping bag! It is suoer wide which is nice on those warm nights when you want a little space to breathe from your cuddle buddy. But it also keeps you super warm when expecially with another person. I love the pockets on the sides! I am 6'1" and I wish this bag was a little bit longer. I usually sleep diagonally or slightly tilted which helps me get down deeper in the bag.

mother of all bags

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This bag rocks. First of all, it's giant, but pretty light weight for the size and warmth. We broke it into two bags and two compression sacks, packed them into a suitcase with our tent and some gear, and made it through the checked luggage with no overweight fees. Very easy to zip into two or back into one. The bag kept us warm in nights down into the low 40s. Spilled half a bottle of beer on it (long story) and the outside dried quickly and the inside NEVER GOT WET! The best thing about this bag though is that it's material and size allow it to stay in one place while you and your boo move around and flip over both on your own or at the same time. AMAZING. Also, both sides zip so your boo doesn't have to climb over you to get out. Love this bag. Felt like a wussie getting this - like I was downgrading my camping cred - but honestly, it's fantastic. Also, Backcountry customer service is THE BOMB.

Pretty obvious this is a car camping bag. Room for two with some extra space. Build quality seems good and kept us warm on some mid-30's nights no issue.

The best double bag the the right price

Bad Ass

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This sleeping bag is perfect for car camping. It is quite large but serves it purpose, comfort and space. It is very comfortable for non-extreme conditions. Typically use it in the bed of truck to star gaze with a date. I am only 5' 8'' so I would recommend getting the longer option if you are much taller than me, even if the longer option is a little bit bigger, either option still be a large sleeping bag, NOT FIT FOR BACKPACKING!!

Question- does anyone know what the "Cancer and Reproductive Harm" warning is about under the Tech Specs? I dunno about you, but cuddling isn't worth that risk.

California requires any chemicals to be noted, if they were found to have issues in the State of California. This warming is on almost all products that are not 100% natural. Thanks for the Question!

I have the ALPS Velocity Queen air bed. The stated width is 58in. This double sleeping bag is stated at 68in. Has anyone else used this bag on this air matress and does it work well, or does the overhang on either side make you slide off matress in middle of night?

>Rating:

Does this bag have a connection in the middle to block air drafts between the two sleepers? I believe this feature is on a lot of the double bags just cannot tell based on pictures and descriptions.

>Rating:

Can you machine wash this sleeping bag? Thanks.

Tom, you can machine wash it but, I wouldnt use the washer or dryer you have at home. I find that something this big needs a bigger size washer you find at the laundromat, and it needs to be a front loader. I would also use Nikwax Tech wash http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-tech-wash

>Rating:

can this separate into two bags?

can this separate into two bags?

No, you they're a double bag meant for two people. There are bags however, that can be "married" by buying a left facing zipper and another right facing zipper. You might want to look into those for the added versatility.

Technically they do separate into 2 bags. I have the bag and it can be done, just not ideal.
