This sleeping bag for rent is exactly as it sounds - one bag that will enclose 2 campers. It is designed to be comfortable down to about 30 degrees, although there are lots of factors that influence your comfort, including your metabolism; what you're wearing; the quality of your mattress pad; the size of your tent; and how many campers are in the tent with you.
This 2-person, double-wide sleeping bag we rent is the "Big Creek" from Big Agnes. It's great for those that want to cuddle up, but keep in mind it's twice as heavy and twice as bulky as a regular sleeping bag. If you're backpacking, you'll need a good-size pack to carry it in as there is no way to split it up of course. It weighs about 5 pounds and the stuff sack size is about 9" by 20" when compressed. If you're car-camping, it's no big deal. As shown in the picture, there is a hood for each camper. We only have a few of these, so if interested, order well in advance. See more details and specs on this 2-person sleeping bag we offer for rent.
All of the bags we rent are top-quality; well-designed, relatively lightweight bags that will help keep you warm and dry at night. All of our bags have a synthetic material fill; natural down is slightly lighter and more expensive, but if you get it wet, you're basically screwed for a few days until it dries out. Synthetic filled bags will still function fairly well even if they get wet. For those reasons, we decided to stick to the synthetic fills for all of the bags we rent, although they don't stuff down as well as the down ones. And yes, we fully wash each bag between rentals, so you won't be catching any bugs or anything from the prior renter - here's me in action. Lot's of fun.
To maximize comfort and the warmth capacity of the bag, be sure to rent a mattress such as one of our various Thermarest or other brand options. Don't try to save a few bucks and plan to just sleep directly on the tent floor -you'll be in for one miserable night. And the mattress pad can have as much to do with how warm you are as the bag - especially with this one as there is no insulation on the bottom side of the sleeping bag. Another hint - if you have excess room lengthwise in your bag, stuff some of your clothes in the bottom to help keep your feet warm and reduce the amount of air inside the bag your body heat has to try to warm up, or throw in a hand warmer packet. If you want to add another 5-10' warmth to any bag we carry, we rent bag liners that are also good as a standalone bag at 55-60' or more.

Note - this item has a high volume-to-weight ratio - that is, it may be relatively light, but it eats up a lot of box space. Shipments including this item often require a bigger box that is subject to a rate surcharge by UPS, so the effective shipping weight calculated at checkout is higher than the actual weight.
