The good

  • Very comfortable, with brushed fabric.
  • Isofill means it packs down small but still provides good insulation. (Isofill Premium in the duvet)
  • Combine with the matching pillow for bed set-up similar to home.

The not so good

  • Not for cold weather camping without additional insulation

Our Review

Sleeping bags are essential when camping in cold weather. They provide excellent insulation by wrapping around your body.

But what if you aren't camping in cold weather? What if you find the sleeping bag material wrapped around you too restrictive and uncomfortable?

Enter the Outwell Campion Duvet, a versatile solution for a home-from-home bed, or when you want some extra warmth in the evening outside.

Why take a duvet and pillow camping?

If you aren't sleeping in cold weather, a duvet and pillow feel much more like sleeping at home. That familiar feeling can help you get a better night's sleep.

A Camping Duvet vs Duvet from Home

If you have a lot of space in your car, you could, of course, take your duvet and pillows from home.

However, for most of us, and especially when taking the family camping, duvets and pillows from your beds will soon fill the car.

Specially designed camping pillows and duvets use modern materials from the outdoor industry to squash down small, yet retain insulation.

The Outwell Campion Duvet we tested contains Isofill Premium. Unlike your duvet at home, Isofill quite likes getting squished. When you fluff it up when unrolling the duvet, the material expands to provide better insulation.

The Outwell Campion Duvet

Outwell sent me the single version of the Outwell Campion Duvet, which is also available as a double.

The single duvet is a good size, measuring 200 x 135 cm. The brushed fabric and 300 gsm Isofill Premium make it a luxury camping product.

The duvet is recommended for 2—to 3-season camping, which should be enough for some cooler nights during the typical UK summer camping season. It has a 7 TOG rating. Plus, it is machine washable.

The duvet comes with a compression sack, so when packed, it only takes around 33 x 23 cm—a lot smaller than if you try to squash down your duvet from home!

The Outwell Campion Pillow

Another accessory that goes with the duvet is the Outwell Campion Pillow.

At the time of this review, the pillow is only about £13 and comes with the same brushed fabric to match the duvet.

From the small pack size of 34 x 17 cm, the pillow expands to 55 x 40 cm, with an approximate thickness of 10 cm.

Pillow height is a personal preference, and I put something else underneath it to raise it slightly (as I have two pillows at home). Despite adjusting the height, the pillow was very comfy and quite big for a camping pillow.
