We offer sleeping bags in 0°, 20°, 35°, and 55°. All temperature ratings are the same price. Our sleeping pads are all the same style - they are intended to insulate you from the ground, but may not provide as much comfort as an inflatable mattress.

The best way to decide which bag you need is to check the forecast for the place you are adventuring. You should pick a sleeping bag with a lower temperature rating than the lowest nighttime temperature you expect where you plan to camp.

We’ve increased our cleaning procedures for all gear to help protect our community! All gear will be cleaned, disinfected, and allowed to rest for 72 hours between rental periods. The CDC has recommended this down time to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.
