best 5 season fishing sleeping bag

In each of our reviews, we discuss which sleeping bags keep you the warmest and most comfortable, but are easy to get in and out of and don’t fall off your bedchair at the slightest of movements!

I prefer to look for something that is made from a breathable fabric, so if I were to choose the best 5 season fishing sleeping bag, I would look for that.

But, what features are important for you?

Could it be strong zippers that don’t break after a couple of uses, or maybe you prefer a fleece-lined sleeping bag that feels warm all night long?

Either way, let’s jump into our reviews to find out more….

1. Trakker Big Snooze Sleeping Bag

Dimensions: 215cm (L) x 91cm (W)
Weight: 3.2kg
Material: Polyester Ripstop with Fleece Lining

The Trakker Big Snooze ‘Plus’ is a re-engineered version or the original, and is the perfect sleepover bag for anglers who want to stay comfortable, warm and dry on the bank.

Trakker Big Snooze 5 Season Fishing Sleeping Bag

This upgraded design includes all of its predecessor’s best features, with some added improvements like new waterproof zippers that will keep water out no matter what the weather.

For those anglers seeking an ultra-light sleeping bag, this packs down small, weighing in at just 3.2kg, which means it can be stuffed into your rucksack or barrow bag easy enough.

Ripstop fabric is fast becoming an industry standard, which is included with the ‘Big Snooze’. This is because the material resists tears or rips better than other materials out there on the market today.

A great feature, and one that I always look for when I am eyeing up a new sleeping bag, is how easy it is to get out of!

Luckily, there are quick release zippers on both sides, so however you sleep, you can be sure of a quick exit as your bite alarms scream of into the night.

Inside, you’ll find soft fleece which gives you that extra warmth required in the dead of winter, whilst various Velcro and drawstring anchor points allow you to trap in heat, or secure to your bedchair.

In fact, I have just noticed elasticated fittings to the head and feet areas which keep the bag (and you) still and secure. There is nothing worse than your sleeping bag slipping off and making you feel uncomfortable throughout the night!

Its number one on our best 5 season fishing sleeping bag list, because I feel it is great value for the features Trakker have included.

2. Fox Ven-Tec Ripstop 5 Season Fishing Sleeping Bag

Dimensions: 213cm (L) x 94cm (W)
Weight: 4.4kg
Material: Ripstop Polyester with 7 Core Hollow Fibre Filling

Are you a frequent winter carp angler? If so, this sleeping bag from Fox is what you’ve been dreaming of!

Fox Ven Tec Ripstop Best 5 Season Sleeping Bag

Unlike other 5 season fishing sleeping bags, this features innovative ‘offset panel stitching’ which allows warm air to be retained inside it for longer, so you feel even more cosy!

As for the inside, you are in for a treat because it contains a matrix of hollow-fibres that are treated with silicone for durability and warmth.

This layer also features Fox’s synthetic down, which is lighter than traditional down, but warms up faster to body temperature creating one of the most comfortable heat-retaining fishing sleeping bags around!

As I got inside, I noticed a ‘foot pocket’ that had zips to contain heat around that area, and as I have really poor circulation, I found my feet warmed up nicely after a few minutes – what a great addition.

When we are looking to buy a new sleeping ag, the one question we ask ourselves is ‘will it fit my bedchair?’. Fox state that it fits most bedchairs, but for the best fitting, we would recommend paring it up with the R2 Camo, Flatliner or EOS bedchairs.

A top sleeping bag that is on the expensive side, but if you do fish regularly in winter, you can’t put a price on keeping warm!

3. Gardner Duvet Plus All Round Sleeping Bag

Dimensions: 235cm (L) x 105cm (W)
Weight: 5.5kg
Material: DPM Shell with Hollofil Fibre Filling

The Carp Duvet Plus sleeping bag is a great choice for those who need an extra layer of insulation, especially on those cooler nights!

Gardner Duvet Plus

This is a proper fishing sleeping bag, so strap in!

Gardner have made two changes to the original (which was already good in my opinion).

The main change has been adjusting to the dimensions; reducing it by over 30cm and widening by 5cm so that they better fit on standard or wide style bedchairs – without compromising comfort.

This in turn has led the Gardner team to redesign the carry bags which now allow you to ‘stuff’ into the bag, rather than fold. This is now in keeping with most other fishing sleeping bags.

Gardner Duvet Plus Fishing Sleeping Bag

What do you make of the extra large multi-layered DPM outer?

This breathable shell is water repellent, and is made with a soft-touch camo fabric whilst the top, removable middle and bottom layers are packed with a double layer of Hollofil fibre filling, which offers superb thermal insulation and all year round comfort.

All the inner layers are lined using super smooth 190D rip stop Taffeta, allowing comfortable and uninhibited free movement without the bag constricting or following you about.

Other key features include full shoulder baffles as well as zip-notch cuffs for a nice tight fit around your shoulders so it really keeps you warm. There’s also a draw cord on the hood, which helps eliminate draughts and keeps you consistently warm when fishing those chilly autumn nights.

packed full of great features to keep you cosy all night long, the Gardner Duvet Plus has gained a reputation for been one of the best 5 season fishing sleeping bags on the market.

The advantages over the 4 season sleeping bag is that this has ‘more hollow fibre filing per square inch’, leading to better insulation, increased warmth which is needed when temperatures plummet.

A modular design allows you tailor the bag to the conditions, so you can strip back layers for under the stars summer angling or go all in in the dead of winter.

Both layers can be zipped in, or out, but each gives you the choice of climbing into soft fleece or a smooth peach skin lining.
