With camping season in full-swing, maybe it’s time to look at your sleeping bag? Yeah, that old thing could possibly use replacing. The tattered edges and permanent campfire smell is a sign that you should look for a new one. But, with everyone looking to pinch every penny, the options become limited.
If you’re in that boat, check out what the Eureka! Casper 15 sleeping bag has to offer. I’ve been impressed with it since it arrived a few months ago and will be taking it out for a few tests in the coming weeks. At a $109 MSRP (as low as $65 at some retailers), the Casper 15 is quite the bargain. Lets dive into some of the features.

Eureka! Casper 15 Sleeping Bag Overview
The Casper 15 arrived in its own compression-style stuff sack and I was very surprised by how compact it was. It is very small and light for being a low-price 15-degree bag. Often-times you’ll get quite a bulky bag at this kind of price, but Eureka! stuffs a ton of value into the Casper 15. The construction quality is very high on this… I’d have no problems tossing this into my backpack and heading out into the backcountry.
Another great feature is the trapezoidal footbox — not something that’s always included in a mummy-style bag. This one will help provide extra space for your feet while you saw logs in your tent. Speaking of sawing logs, the peached polyester lining provides soft next-to-skin feel that’s much better than straight-up nylon or polyester.
My plan is to take this bag out over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for updates.
