Teton Sports Celsius XL Sleeping Bag Review

Our family loves to camp and we do so quite often in the summer….well thinking about it we are planning a weekend on the lake to celebrate the 4th of July here in the next couple of weeks, so naturally when I began looking for the perfect gift for my husband this Father’s Day, I was looking for something that he could enjoy when we were camping or when he went deer hunting with the boys in November. I was thrilled when I discovered Teton Sports and their line of Celsius sleeping bags and even more thrilled when they offered to send my husband one for review!!!

About Teton Sports (taken from website):

The TETON Sports story is pretty simple. The company was started in 2005 in Utah with a very long not-to-do list as opposed to the traditional to-do list. We do just a few things, but we try hard to do them well. We have only a handful of customers, but we do big business with the few we have. We like to partner with the best retailers in the business.

We have a simple business model with very low overhead. It allows us to overbuild product and still be priced competitively. That's why we get the kind of reviews we get. And then of course it just feeds on itself.

The last piece of the puzzle is customer service. We'll do nearly anything to keep the customer happy. Happy customers talk a lot and we like that kind of talk.

Thanks for using TETON products. Please be sure to tell us what you think.

Our Thoughts:

The awesome people over at Teton Sports sent my husband the Green Celsius XL -18°C/0°F Sleeping Bag to review and it arrived very quickly and packaged very nicely in a box so that the sleeping bag itself would not be damaged in shipping. Once it arrived I was really excited to give it to my husband because he is an avid deer hunter and well let’s face it his old sleeping bag is like 15yrs old and has serious issues, it’s ripped in places and the zipper no longer works and I knew he had been hinting and taking about wanting a new one before this coming deer season.

Once my husband got I and spotted his new Celsius XL ( I didn’t bother to hide it I just put it on top of the washing machine so he could find it easily) the first thing he did was ask who I had got it for, because he figured I got it for my dad but once he found out it was for him, his eyes immediately lit up and he began opening the box just like a kid on Christmas morning! Once he got the sleeping bag out of it’s box he had to try it out immediately and said that it is super soft and he said that it will be super warm in the cabin this deer season and that he can’t wait to try her out!

I think his favorite part of this sleeping bag is the fact that it has the adjustable mummy style hood, he is very particular about his ears getting cold so I think this little guy will be sure to keep him nice and warm. We have went camping once since the sleeping bag arrived and Chad took it with him but he only used it to sleep on, since it was so hot he didn’t bother to zip it all the way up or use the hood but he said that it slept super well. We both love the fact that it comes with a very convenient carrying case so that it’s easy to carry and store. After seeing how happy he is with his I’ve got my eye on the pink and brown Celsius sleeping bag they have on their website. I don’t hunt but I do occasionally stay at camp with them once or twice during the season and I think it would be perfect for then. The way this sleeping bag is made I have a feeling that it is going to last Chad well longer than his previous sleeping bag and well it defiantly looks and smells better too LOL!

Bottom Line:

Chad is defiantly in love with his new Celsius XL sleeping bag and I can guarantee that he will be using it deer season after deer season for years to come! I want to thank Teton Sports for giving my husband such a wonderful Father’s Day gift and I now have an idea of what to get my own father for his up coming birthday since it is the same day deer season usually begins here in Arkansas!

If you are looking for the perfect sleeping bag for you or the special man/men in your life I highly recommend the Celsius XL….it will defiantly make the as happy as a kid on Christmas morning….and keep them warm too J!
