Why We Built The Groundwork Double Sleeping Bag

We made the Stoic Groundwork Double Sleeping Bag because it's challenging enough to find a sleeping bag for two, and it's even harder to find a bag that feels comfy in colder and warmer temperatures. This double-wide sleeping bag offers soft warmth even when the forecast calls for gray skies and morning fog. You're welcome to cozy up with your partner, or unzip the bag into separate parts in case someone heads out on a solo mission.

  • A double-wide sleeping bag for adventures with your best friend
  • Water-repellent finish sheds light dirt and precipitation
  • Synthetic insulation retains warmth even when it gets wet
  • Soft fabrics feel comfortable while you lounge after a hike
  • Sleeping bag unzips into two separate bags just in case

Steller Summer & Shoulder Season Bag

    This is our go to for the spring, summer, and early fall camping season. Fits two and our dog and we stay nice and toasty. With this being an open bag (not mummy style), we definitely add a layer on colder nights. The Stoic double blanket does the trick ;)

    Snuggle-blanket

    • Fit: True to size

    Ignore the temp rating. Anyone who has slept out in the cold wouldn't for a minute trust this bag anywhere near its temperature rating. This is a summer and shoulder season bag at most and if I were taking it out anywhere below 50 deg. I'd have plans to throw a down comforter or something else over it and have some long underwear to add layers to your sleep system. If you are going to sleep at 20 deg. F you would be much better off buying a proper mummy bag that is rated at < 10 deg. F.

    The zippers to separate it into two bags suck too but on the upside, the materials are soft against the skin, I love jumping into this with my sweetie, and in something like a car camping environment this is a perfectly functional solution.

    Temperature rating horribly off

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    We bought this to use in our rooftop tent, which is well insulated to begin with (warmer than our 4 season mountaineering tent). We slept in it one night, it got down to 40 degrees and we were freezing. We had planned to camp two more nights and chose to go home instead because we had such an awful night. I wouldn't recommend this for anything other than summer camping at low altitude with temps over 60 degrees.

    Hey Brenna,

    I'm so sorry you weren't happy with this bag and definitely appreciate your feedback. I've sent you an email with a few questions and a few recommendations as well. Next time you run into anything like this, we are more than happy to work with you and find something that works better!

    Thanks,

    Temperature rating off.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    Used at 9,000 feet in Colorado for a five days temps got just below freezing. The temperature rating was definitely off we ended up using sleeping bag liners and a few blankets to stay warm enough.

    That being said still this bag still gets 4 stars, it is very large and the quality seems really good. It’s a 3 season bag and now that I know that I look forward to using it next spring.

    For reference I’m 6’3 and my significant other is ~5’9 and it was big enough that we fit in with plenty of room to spare.

    Temperature Rating is Wrong

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like the bag just fine...for the Summer or Spring etc. This is not a 20 degree bag though. You will be very cold and uncomfortable in the bag even with clothes on and a beanie if its anything near 45 degrees or less. Buyer beware.

    Cozy but a bit cold

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I'll preface this by saying this product is the first double-sleeping bag that I've used. Unlike normal sleeping bags where there is a wrapping mummy effect around your body, sleeping in a double sleeping bag can create space between you and your partner where cold air can get through. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

    Now, I've used this bag several times in temperatures ranging from 45 to 65 degrees at night. This bag is adequate for 65 degrees and quite comfortable. For every 10 degrees below 65, I've needed to add an extra blanket. So two blankets at 45 degrees.

    Maybe I don't understand the degree rating system, but the 20 degree rating is a bit baffling. Overall, the bag feels a bit thin. Still, it's very comfortable when supplemented with blankets. In hindsight, I wish I got a warmer bag, though this realization didn't come till 3 days after the return policy expired.

    Like it so far

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    We just got this and have used it on one camping trip so far. We got ours for car camping since it's way too big and heavy for backpacking.

    Its a really cozy bag and we slept very comfortably for the most part. We spent two nights in temperatures in the mid 40's.

    The first night I slept in only boxers and a t-shirt with no socks, my feet got pretty cold when I would have them extended to the end of the bag, but that isn't so much a knock on the warmth of the bag as it was me just not using my common sense to wear socks. Curling up a bit so my feet weren't hanging off the end of the mattress. I'll add, we were using a cheap inflatable 8" thick mattress that probably has a 0 R rating and the first night we had the end where our heads were right up against the tent wall, so I had to scoot down on the mattress and laying out straight left my feet dangling off the edge. Again, more dumb camping than the bag not performing.

    Second night, I wore socks and we adjusted the mattress and I didn't get cold once. I added a little heavier fleece top with a hood instead of the t-shirt to keep my head warm, and I was really toasty.

    We'll really get to see how durable and cozy it is as a car camping bag as we have several trips planned this winter in the Pacific NW. We picked up a Stoic dual mattress to pair with it after realizing how poorly our inflatable air mattress was. I think that will make a great car camping combo.

    Sooooo Perfect!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This was exactly what we were needing in our lives! I would suggest that if you are camping in 20-30 degree weather, make sure to bring an extra blanket to stuff inside with you or on top! We used the Stoic quilts that worked soooo great!

    So Soft!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This bag is so soft and comfortable! It feels like the Enlightened Equipment bags. The colors are beautiful and complimentary. It packs down smaller than many single bags! Backcountry listened to the below reviews and changed the stuff sack. It seems very durable now. I cannot imagine it ripping easily. The bag just arrived so we have yet to camp with it but trying it out at home made us toasty very quickly. I do doubt the 20* rating but we shall see. I sleep cold so I am debating getting a second to split up into two bags BUT the zippers are awful. My little and I tried unsuccessfully to get it into two bags and finally gave up and struggled to zip it back into one bag. The zippers snag and get stuck constantly. For us, zipping into two bags didn't work at all. It's otherwise such a great bag. Definitely worth getting and keeping - especially at this price point! I just wish they had spent a few extra dollars on better zippers. It would have made the bag perfect.

    Great Addition

      Super stoked on this bag for car camping! Most double bags are super bulky and not very comfortable. This bag packs much smaller than the majority of double bags and is much more comfortable. With plenty of room for two, I highly recommend this bag! Huge bang for your buck! This is a great addition to the car camping arsenal.

      In addition to purchasing my own, it makes a great christmas/birthday/wedding gift. I was able to get one for my sister's wedding present and they seem just as stoked as me!

      Great for car camping so warm and cozy

        Really warm bag,my partner runs cold so this was An awesome purchase. Packs smaller than my 10 degree single bag from 20 years ago. Paired with the stoic bivy blanket and sleeping pad we were sleeping in the cozy clouds all weekend.

          Stuff sack tore within 24 hours

            I get this sleeping bag for a trip with my significant other. We leave in 2 days.

            I go to pack the BRAND NEW out of the package double sleeping bag and the stuff sack tears.

            had the same thing happen to me. The sleeping bag itself is good quality but the stuff sack is fragile. Bought a generic stuff sack to replace it.

            Comfy, warm, sleeping bag for two!

            I'd never used a double sleeping bag before this, so I only have traditional mummy bags to compare it to, but I really liked this bag! It's very soft to the touch, was warmer than I expected (we were HOT in ~30F weather while cuddling), and paired perfectly with the Stoic Double Cloud Camp Bed. I'm 6'4", and the bag was long enough for me, since it doesn't have a hood. I'm a side sleeper, so I wasn't fully stretched out anyway. If you're looking for a warm, affordable double sleeping bag for 3 season car camping, this is a great option!
