We put the Vango Harmony double sleeping bag to the test with a reluctant camper.

vango harmony double
Overall Score
Very plush ‘bed’ feeling
Difficult to stay warm in, even on a summer’s night

This sleeping bag was taken on a trip as part of our ‘reluctant camper’ series. It was taken to prove that camping doesn’t have to be a largely uncomfortable experience – did it stand up to the test?

The bag comes in a 4 strap compression sac that works well to reduce its size somewhat but being a double the packaged product is still rather large at 58 x 31cm, certainly not something that you would be able to stuff into a day pack.

When we opened the sac and unrolled the contents we noticed how plush the fabric felt with its microfiber covering – a good start.

The zips can be unzipped from the top or bottom giving the flexibility to ventilate on warmer nights or insulate on colder nights. Our first night was decidedly the latter of the two so we opted to fully close and seal the bottom zips with the insulated zip baffle.

Once we finally clambered in at the end of a busy and active day we were greeted by a particularly cosy, spacious internal. The square envelope shape allows for plenty of freedom of movement, great for someone who tends to toss and turn at night.

We stowed our phones in the handy internal pockets and bedded down for a warm, comfortable and cosy night’s sleep – fingers crossed.

Unfortunately not! On a particularly cold summers night we found that the bag didn’t quite provide sufficient warmth with its 8-20 degree comfort range. Perhaps a 3 season or even single mummy bags would have been better (although a bit less romantic!) in this instance.

Overall, although the bag didn't perform particularly well at keeping the cold at bay it remains good value and has a plush enough feel to it to be recommended for occasional family camping trips in mild weather.
