SKU: Convertible Junior Sleeping Bag
Brand: Outwell

The Outwell Convertible Junior sleeping bag grows as your child does. We give it a review to see if it is any good or just a gimmick.

Kids just keep on growing.

While that is a good thing, it does mean as a parent you are continually buying new clothes, new shoes, and…..new sleeping bags.

Outwell have come up with a solution that could mean you get an extra year or two out of your child’s sleeping bag.

It’s their Convertible child’s sleeping bag.

The sleeping bag itself is a good 2 season sleeping bag that fits children between 140 and 170.

The quality of the bag is very good. We’ve used it many times now, and we’ve been impressed by how warm it feels, despite it only being rated as 2 Season. (Click here to learn more about sleeping bag ratings).

The neat trick with this sleeping bag is that if you unzip it at the bottom, you get an extra 30 cms, making the sleeping bag big enough for children up to around 170 cm tall. So depending on how fast your kid is growing, you might even get an extra two years out of this sleeping bag.

Watch our video below to get a better idea of what this sleeping bag is like.

The highlight of the Outwell Convertible Sleeping Bag Features

The sleeping bag comes with all the usual features you would expect of a good sleeping bag, such as a mummy hood for extra insulation, a good toe box to keep the feet warm, and even loops for drying the sleeping bag.

In addition to its big feature of being able to convert into a larger sleeping bag, we also liked the zip mechanism.

There was a large, insulated baffle, by the zip that helps prevent heat loss through the zip. This also has a smart design to prevent the sleeping bag zip from snagging, which can often happen with sleeping bags.

The insulated baffles continue with an excellently padded collar at the top of the sleeping bag.

Inside there’s a little pocket. Ideal for a small teddy for younger kids but would probably be used for something like an iPod when they are bigger.

Outwell Convertible vs Vango Convertible Sleeping Bag

Vango also makes a convertible sleeping bag for kids. So how do they compare?

Well, the major design difference is that with the Vango convertible sleeping bag the extra section zips off completely. I think the Outwell design is better as I reckon by the time we need to zip on the extra section, we would never find the extra bit that comes with the Vango convertible sleeping bag. With the Outwell design, the extra length stays with the bag, so there is no chance of losing it.
