I love going camping! I haven`t been in a few years unfortunately, but I`m awaiting planning our next trip. When I say camping, I mean the old fashioned tent, sleeping bags, you name it. I love the fancy RVs and cabins, but growing up, when I went camping, we did it with the tent and camp fires and all! Thanks to Teton Sports I was able to check out one of the Celsius Regular Sleeping Bags - which will be used when we go on our next camping trip! Oh yes, did I mention one of my lucky readers has a chance to win a sleeping bag as well?!
About Teton Sports:
The TETON Sports story is pretty simple. The company was started in 2005 in Utah with a very long not-to-do list as opposed to the traditional to-do list. We do just a few things, but we try hard to do them well. We have only a handful of customers, but we do big business with the few we have. We like to partner with the best retailers in the business. We have a simple business model with very low overhead. It allows us to overbuild product and still be priced competitively. That`s why we get the kind of reviews we get. And then of course it just feeds on itself. The last piece of the puzzle is customer service. We`ll do nearly anything to keep the customer happy. Happy customers talk a lot and we like that kind of talk.
What do I think?
When I received my sleeping back I was excited. When I said it`s been several years since I`ve been camping, I mean since I was inÂ elementaryÂ school. My husband and I have been discussing planning a trip when we both have time off from our j-o-b and of course since it would be our first camping trip together that means we would have a LOT of supplies we would need to get. Well, not too many, but all the essentials at least. Since Sophia has a sleeping bag, and I now have a sleeping bag, Eric, my husband, went and bought a tent so they could have a fun "camp out" for a few hours with the sleeping bags. Of course, come the camping trip he`s the only one left who needs a bag! Since I had to work, my hubby also had a chance to feel out the bag as well and I had to try the bag out for myself later on. This wellâ€“built sleeping bag keeps you warm in all but the most extreme temperatures. Cozy flannel lining retains body heat and feels like a luxury sheet. Cushioning around zipper and shoulder opening keep drafts out. Staggered seams distribute fill evenly and reduce compression to eliminate chilly spots. Halfâ€“circle hood snugs around neck with drawstring. Noâ€“snag, selfâ€“repairing zipper opens top or bottom for adjustable ventilation and connects easily to second bag for shared sleeping space. [caption id="attachment_34329" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Snug as a bug![/caption] My husband is about 5`6" in height and found that while the sleeping bag is comfortable, snug an warm, he was a bit too tall to fit in it properly. I, on the other hand, am about 4`ll" (yes, I know I`m short!) fit in it PERFECTLY. I felt as snug as a bug in this thing. It arrived well packaged in the box and includes it`s own storage bag to keep it in when not in use. It was tightly packed in there so it took a minute to get out for me, but it`s good because it doesn`t take up a lot of space when you`re not using it. The sleeping bag itself is made using high quality materials. They`re soft, comfy & warm - very important to anyone who camps out. I tried it out on our hard tile flooring for reviewing purposes and was very comfy. Seriously, I told my husband he`s lucky I don`t sleep in it on the floor! Not to mention I love the pink and brown color pattern! My only complaint is that this can`t turn into a bed comforter so I could sleep with the same comfy materials on a regular basis, especially during the winter! I definitely recommend Teton Sport products, especially the sleeping bags! Besides, this particular bag donates a portion of the proceeds to help fight breast cancer. Just beware of your height the bag size if you`re looking at sleeping bags so you can be sure to get the right size for your body!
