Coleman Silverton 25
Not EN Tested; about 30 degrees F in real-world use. Fill: Synthetic. 59.5oz ($55, www.coleman.com)
The Coleman Silverman is a synthetic bag comfortable down to roughly 35 degrees. It’s heavy at 3 pound 11 ounces, but has surprising attention to detail for a $55 sleeping bag. The inclusion of a velcro fastener for the zipper is a nice touch as is the internal gadget pocket. The Silverton is too large to fit in a kayak but is suitable for canoe trips with no portages and car camping. And at this price point, you won’t have a heart attack if something is spilled on it.
Caveat: Snug fit for bulk and weight.
Best for: Those on a tight budget.
