Coleman Tasman Sleeping Bags are a hybrid-style sleeping bag featuring a full hood and reverse-tapered footbox. Tasman Hybrid bags have a 3-inch full-length insulated draft tube and insulated chest baffle filled with 32-60 oz. of Coleman's blend of insulation. Tasman sleeping bags have an anti-microbial and moisture-managing liner, as well as a cover made from 210T polyester ripstop. Coleman Tasman Hybrids come in models with comfort ratings of 0°F, 20°F, and are 32°F and 33" x 85" in size with a right zip.
Coleman Tasman Hybrid Sleeping Bags combine the qualities of a rectangular sleeping bag and a mummy sleeping bag. Like a mummy bag, the Coleman Tasman is warmer because of it's body-conforming shape (there's less air to warm around your body). Like a rectangular bag, you have flexibility to move your legs into a comfortable sleeping position.
The three models of Coleman Tasman Hybrid bags weigh from 4 lbs. 7 oz. to 6 lbs. 8 oz. and range in pack size from 9.5" x 16" to 12" x 18". Due to the hybrid style there is a bit more fabric than a mummy bag and therefore Tasman Hybrids weigh more and pack larger. Backpacker-types using these bags are adding weight and taking up a bit more valuable space in their packs.
Coleman Tasman Hybrid Sleeping Bags are a good choice if you desire the warmth of a mummy bag coupled with the comfort and freedom of movement of a rectangular bag.
