Coleman River Gorge 30°F Sleeping Bag

Step one of packing for a camping trip: Get yourself the Coleman River Gorge 30°F Sleeping Bag. This super-warm sleeping bag features a Thermolock Zipper Tube, which is a fancy way of saying it's excellent at regulating temperature and preventing heat loss. You may not even need a pillow, thanks to the Comfort Cuff design that gives your head an ultra-plush place to rest. And did we mention the drawcord system makes it super easy to pack and unpack?
