Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy Ultra-Compactable Sleeping Bag Review
Backpacking is perhaps one of the most budget friendly ways of exploring the world around you. However, it is important to note that cheap is not always good. You need to guarantee quality in the backpacking gears, otherwise you will find yourself shivering at the top of the mountain in your threadbare sleeping bag.
But don’t fret, there are several companies that create gear that is high in quality and low in price, including Suisse Sport.
While Suisse Sport has produced several best sleeping bags that are of note, their top selling adult sized sleeping bag is the Adventurer Mummy. This ultra compact bag maximizes on weight savings without sacrificing on quality, so that you can have the ultimate backpacking experience.
Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy Sleeping Bag Review
The Adventurer Mummy is therefore the epitome of warmth and comfort, and below we will explore this sleeping bag further.
Who is it made for?
Similar to the Teton Sports Trailhead 20 we previously reviewed; the Adventurer Mummy is lightweight, warm, comfortable and durable. However, it has been designed for the early fall, late spring, and summer seasons.
This adult sleeping bag is therefore suitable for hikers, campers and bikers that are looking for lightweight camping gear.
This compact and lightweight bag can therefore fit into your backpack with ease, making it perfect for all campers, bikers, and hikers who are weight conscious.
Another respectable feature of the Suisse Sport Adventurer Mummy is its double layer offset quilt construction, which ensures that no cool spots are found in your bag. This bag is also rated for 30 Degrees, allowing you to use it in dry conditions across the three seasons.
The adult sized sleeping bag therefore guarantees top performance for a long time to come.
This is why Suisse Sport has designed the Adventurer Mummy with a contoured top, so that you can have a soft surface upon which to lay your head.
There is also a drawstring hood that keeps your head warm throughout the night.
Last but not least, the Adventurer Mummy is composed of a convenient zipperdesign that you will love. This sleeping bag is composed of a double action zipper for easy closing, as well as draft tube which retains body heat and protects you against the elements.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Can I wash the sleeping bag in a washing machine?
A: Yes, the Suisse Sport Adventurer is machine washable. It is recommended that you use an industrial washer or a front loader. Any washing machine with a center agitator will shred your sleeping bag to pieces.
Q: What is the difference between a left-handed and right-handed orientation sleeping bag?
A: The left-handed and right-handed oriented sleeping bags are not exclusively for left-handed and right-handed individuals. The difference in orientation is to make it more convenient for you e.g. if your tent unzips on the right, then a right-handed orientation bag will be easier for you to get out of.
Additionally, if you are traveling with your partner, you can buy a left-handed and right-handed sleeping bag and then zip them together.
Q: How heavy is the Adventurer?
A: The Suisse Sport Adventurer weighs slightly over 3lbs.
