Sleep In The Dirt

The Best Double Sleeping Bag for Car-Camping Couples

Product Reviews

The Wirecutter dives in two at a time to select the best doublewide bag for the job.  The Dream Island is chosen after nine couples try out six double bags over a handful of camping trips. They agreed it’s the most comfortable and functional backcountry bed made for two.

“The Big Agnes Dream Island comes closer to feeling like a real bed than any other double bag we tested. A built-in sleeping-pad pocket eliminates the middle-of-the-night bunching and sliding we’ve experienced with other bags (the pad is sold separately). The Dream Island is also unusually lofty and comfortable—more like sleeping with a big, soft quilt draped over you than bunking up in a typical sleeping bag.”

Sleeping next to each other in single bags is like using a bunk bed on your honeymoon. There’s a better way. Photo: Jeremy Pavia
