GOOD POINTS: If you need something a little extra to entice the family on a camping trip, then why not treat yourselves to a super comfy Camper Lux sleeping bag to ensure a decent night's sleep...what's more, the range offers a choice of both single and double sizes (the latter of which will be the focus of this review).

The Camper Lux Double Sleeping Bag is a rectangular three/four season bag which is of a decent length and width to provide plenty of room for two adults to sleep side by side.

The sleeping bag has an attractive design - plain exterior and stripe pattern interior - and a wonderful finish. It has a very substantial feel to it and is made from a two layer construction to minimise cold spots - that is, a loose polycotton outer shell which is super soft and silky to touch, with a separate soft cotton flannel lining with 3100g Isofill filling to provide maximum warmth and comfort (suitable down to outside temperatures of -16 degrees centigrade).

The sleeping bag has many high specification features for a comfortable night's sleep, including a zip-off shaped hood with built-in pillow and drawstring edging which keeps the head warm and snug

Access into and out of either side of the sleeping bag is via a heavy duty zip fastening running down the side (and bottom), complete with a two way zipper to allow for added ventilation in warmer weather, as well as a full-length zip baffle - a padded 'insulation' strip down the zip openings which offer extra protection in colder weather by helping to stop heat escaping.

Some well-designed finger loops aid opening and closing zippers quickly, and a useful fabric 'guard' that sits over the top of the zip helps to prevent it catching on skin. 

One of the great features of the bag is that it can be completely unzipped for use as two separate duvets, or rezipped into two separate bags (although the hood must be detached for this).

Other features include a small inside pocket for storing a few essentials for easy access, as well as corner liner attachment loops which allow an inner bag (if required or desired) to be securely fastened within the main bag to prevent it getting ruffled up and twisted during sleep.

In addition, the sleeping bag comes with its own zipped pack sack for storing the sleeping bag compactly, and includes a useful carry handle for easy transportation. What's more, the bag is fully machine washable and can even be tumble dried! 

This is, in our opinion, a really well designed and comfortable sleeping bag which adds a little bit of camping luxury for Mum and Dad.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
