Camping is always a good time. But when you add in someone special to share your sleeping bag with, camping gets a whole lot better.
While there are tons of single person sleeping bags suited for backpacking (hiking to your campsite) and car camping (driving up to your campsite), there aren’t a lot of options when it comes to finding the best 2 person sleeping bags.
So to help you stay warm at night, I’ve compiled a list of 5 of the best 2 person sleeping bags that range in price, style and intended usage scenario, perfect for couples looking to experience the great outdoors side by side
5 Of The Best 2 Person Sleeping Bags
1) Big Agnes - Saddle Mountain SL 15 Sleeping Bag
Big Agnes dominates the 2 person sleeping bag market by offering several options for camping couples. In addition to the Big Creek Doublewide Sleeping Bag (seen below), which is better suited for car camping, Big Agnes also offers the three-season, Saddle Mountain SL 15, a light and technical 2 person sleeping bag perfect for couples looking to camp in the backcountry. Constructed using 600 fill Downtek water repellent down insulation, the Saddle Mountain SL 15 weighs just 3 lb. 13 oz. and features an integrated sleeve to hold your sleeping pad in place. Best of all, the Saddle Mountain SL 15 eliminates drafts (a common concern with 2 person sleeping bags) with the addition of a no-draft collar that seals around the neck of each person and a no-draft flap at the center to eliminate drafts between the sleepers. Price: $520

2) The North Face - Dolomite Double 20 Regular Sleeping Bag
Built for two, the North Face Dolomite Double 20 Regular Sleeping Bag is a three-season 2 person bag best suited for car camping (due to its 8 lb. 14oz. weight) and rated for use in temperatures as low as 20° Fahrenheit. While the HeatSeeker Eco synthetic insulation will keep you warm, the bags rectangular shape makes it extra roomy, giving you and your partner plenty of space to move around (it’s about the size of a queen size bed). Luckily, for such a large sleeping bag, it is also compressible which makes packing it up and hauling it with you easier. Best of all, this two person sleeping bag features full-length zippers on each side, which when unzipped and laid flat, turn this bag into a large blanket. Price: $170
3) Mountain Hardwear – Megalamina 20 Sleeping Bag
Built for three season use, the Mountain Hardwear Megalamina 20 is made of thermic micro synthetic insulation with a lightweight, water repellent nylon shell. Together, these materials give this 2 person sleeping bag a light-for-its-size weight of 6 lb. 3 oz., while also being highly compressible. Rated for use in temperatures as low as 20 degrees, the Megalamina 20 is spacious, especially at the top where the double wide construction provides plenty of room to roll around. Price: $230
4) Big Agnes - Big Agnes Big Creek 30F Doublewide Sleeping Bag

Plus, at just $200, it’s a best buy. Price: $200
5) Sierra Designs – Backcountry Bed Duo Synthetic 1.5-Season Sleeping Bag
