Vango Wilderness 250 Sleeping Bag

We’ve been using a pair of Vango Wilderness 250 sleeping bags now for a number of years. They’ve been on a great many camps, from both early spring, summer, and autumn.

So what are they like?

Vango Wilderness 250 Review

Firstly, the Wilderness 250 is an affordable sleeping bag that’s proved to be great quality.

As I said, we’ve used these for a great many camps and they’re still going strong.

However, they don’t look as plush as the product photo above anymore. Over time, all lining will get worn down, despite the bag having good baffles (the sewn sections going across the sleeping bag to prevent the insulation moving around).

Are they warm?

Yes and no.

These are 2 season sleeping bags, and so best for summer use, although it doesn’t have to be really hot. In fact, when it is hot, I find the sleeping bag too hot anyway.

We have used these in Spring and Autumn, which beyond the recommended limits for the Wilderness 250, and they are cold.  However, we insulate well (remember, to put more blankets under the sleeping bag than on top if you sleeping on the ground – even on an air bed).

If you are just doing summer camping then these sleeping bags are ideal. (If you want a budget option that’s a bit warmer, read our Summit 350 review).

Do they pack down well?

Vango Wilderness 250 – Packed

Yes.

Vango supply a stuff sack with the Wilderness 250, and you can see from this picture that when packed it’s little more than 2 pen lengths.

If you are not used to a stuff sack then here’s a top tip: Don’t bother folding your bag.

Instead, loosen the compression straps on the sack and simply stuff the sleeping bag into the sack.

Once inside, pull the drawstring around the opening, place the straps back over the top of the sack, and re-tighten.

The Wilderness 250 will be quite compact for transporting.
