We get our hands on an Outwell Conqueror sleeping bag, which is a sleeping bag/duvet hybrid. But just how good is it?

I love camping. However, I don’t necessarily like sleeping in a sleeping bag.

I find sleeping bags a little restrictive

Sure, we’ve tried and tested some great sleeping bags, but I don’t like to be wrapped up that tight. Unless of course, it is freezing.

I find sleeping bags a little restrictive.

The alternative could be to take a duvet from home, but this has its drawbacks.
For a start, they are not as warm as a sleeping bag, no matter how thick your duvet is because you lose a lot of heat through the floor, and so a duvet just on top is only doing half the job.

So what’s the alternative?

The Outwell Conqueror Sleeping Bag – a Sleeping Bag/Duvet Hybrid

When I first got a good look at the Outwell Conqueror, I knew this is a design that will solve a lot of uncomfortable nights for people like me who don’t like sleeping bags that much.

Fortunately, Outwell agreed to send us one to try out. So, is it any good?

Well, it is a sleeping bag. A mummy shaped sleeping bag to be precise.

However, unlike some other sleeping bags, it has plenty of space, especially around the sides and the feet.

it comes with a built-in duvet

The sleeping bag part of it is made from 700 g Isofill Premium.

However, where it differs from a lot of other sleeping bags, is that you don’t zip yourself in. Instead, it comes with a built-in duvet.

It’s a Duvet!

The duvet part of the sleeping bag can be clipped in place to keep you warm, or you can fold it down if you get a bit hot.

The duvet arrangement is something we found incredibly flexible, even if a bit different to get in than the usual sleeping bag.

More comfort

To further add to the comfort, the lining is cotton.

Now, with a duvet and cotton lining, this is starting to look much more like a bed than a sleeping bag

Combine it with an Outwell Centuple sleeping system, and you will have a very good sleeping set-up in your tent.

It does have a zip. Just one.

There is one zip on the Outwell Conquerer, and that is along the bottom.

I found this useful for unzipping and staying in the sleeping bag to move around the tent.

Verdict

This is by far our best sleeping bag. We all want to use it, especially when combined with the Centuple sleeping system.

Outwell Conqueror Temperature RatingIt is an expensive sleeping bag, but there’s enough insulation there to see you camping with it from spring through to autumn, and if it gets too hot in the summer, you can just fold the duvet back or simply sleep on top.
GOWTK Thumbs Up AwardIf you want to treat yourself to a good sleeping bag for family camping, you’ll be pleased with the Outwell Conqueror.

This gets the GOWTK Thumbs Up Award.
