What Is The Kelty Tuck 22 Degree Sleeping Bag?
The sleeping bag is designed for comfort whether you sleep hot or cold. The roomy, mummy-shaped sleeping bag is made with compressible, Thermapro fiber insulation to keep you warm no matter WHAT the season is.
What makes this sleeping bag unique? If you start heating up a little too much, you can unzip the bottom of your sleeping bag and let your feet cool off.

How It Worked For Me
Just like everyone else, I stumbled across this sleeping bag through Amazon a few months ago and bit the bullet, and bought the bag. To my surprise it was better than I expected, it came with everything as promised and I use it every time i go camping.
It is currently Winter here in NZ and over the last couple of months I have been camping at least 5 times, using this sleeping bag every time. I have found that it’s not the best for cold temperatures, but with enough layers and a good sleeping pad you’re well on your way to a good nights sleep.
In saying that, this would be perfect for the warmer months, especially with the extra zip at the bottom of the bag to vent your feet and let the hot air out.
How Well-Made Is The Bag? Is It Comfortable?
The material is quite strong and definitely good quality, though for the price you pay it’s not something you should expect to be astonishing. If you want a quality bag this one is worth considering.
Comfort: I found this sleeping bag REALLY comfortable, which is an added bonus considering the price. The feet-out option is a must have especially for the warmer months, though I’m enjoying it so far!
The thermal-comfort hood is a great feature I always use for added warmth.
Why I recommend It
It’s not the best bag for a cold, winter camping trip.
However this sleeping bag does make for a great summer sleeping bag, making it a perfect fit for anyone to use.

The Stuff Sack
The Kelty Tuck sleeping bag comes with a matching stuff sack that is easy enough to compress the bag into. And you literally ‘stuff’ that sack in, don’t roll it, it works great!
Is It Right For You?
If you’re planning to use it for Summer, Spring and Fall then this is a perfect sleeping bag for you.
However if you want to go on really cold camping trips then I wouldn’t recommend this sleeping bag UNLESS you know how to add extra warmth to your tent, if you don’t know how – you can read my article here.
Conclusion – Is It Worth The Money?
If you’re a seasonal camper and enjoy going for trips during the year then I highly recommend this sleeping bag, however if you want to go on winter camping trips I don’t think you should get this sleeping bag, as the advertised 22 degrees is not the best estimation.
I think they mean that you won’t die from hypothermia while at 22 degrees if you’re in this sleeping bag, lol.
Either way I highly recommend this sleeping bag if you want to go camping during the warmer months. But most of all, is it worth the money? I would answer yes.

This sleeping bag looks super comfy! I had a sleeping once that was way too small so that I couldn’t fit inside it. It was horrible. I personally do a lot of excursions and sometimes I sleep outside in tents etc. Sleeping bags are crucial when sleeping outside. Maybe this one is good for me… I will check it out.
Hi David, well you are right, it is super comfy! The Kelty 22 Degree sleeping bag is great for winter excursions but not the best if you’re on a budget. However, all in all it does its job, which is to keep you warm for the night. I’m super glad you found this post helpful.
This is a great and hilarious review of the Kelty Tuck 22 Degree Sleeping Bag. This is very comprehensive and covers most of the aspects I am looking for in a sleeping bag. However, because I am in kind of a budget right now, do you have a cheaper alternative to recommend me? I would really appreciate that!
Hi there Will! Thanks for the kind comment, I’m glad you liked it. And yes I do actually, the Suisse Sport Alpine Sleeping Bag might be something you’re after, and actually a lot cheaper as well. Hope this helps.
Hmm, I guess it’s called 22 degrees because of how cold it can get, and it’ll still keep you warm? Looks comfy, if I go camping; I will definitely consider it.
Hello Xdeem, you are correct, it will still keep you warm at those temperatures – considering you have shelter of course. And yes, it is very comfy!
Thanks for stopping by,
Nice review. My husband is 6′ tall so this sleeping bag looks like it would fit him well. I am short, 5′-2″. Would this still work for me or do you have a better recommendation?
Hey Amanda, it will work perfectly for you. It might be a little big for you, but nothing too drastic as to where the sleeping bag won’t function correctly (lol). Hope this helps.
Nice review! I am in the market for a new sleeping bag and was thinking about getting one. This one sounds very comfortable and perfect as long as the nights don’t get that cold. I have lost several sleeping bags in the past, so I need one I can hang onto. Great info. Thanks.
I know what you mean. This one is really quite warm as long as you have shelter, you can get in some pretty low temperatures and still feel warm. However if you want to camp without shelter, 22 degrees would probably be pushing it in this bag.
Glad you found this post helpful Dave!
