Gear Review: Coolmax Sleep Sack

I came across the website some time ago, I was intrigued by this company that offered several handy camping and outdoor products.

A few weekends ago I had the chance to use one of the new Outgo Coolmax Sleep Sack and Sleeping Bag Liners. It certainly came in handy when the temps dipped a bit below what I find comfortable.

I am always on the lookout for products that will enhance my camping, fishing or hunting experience. After all, who actually likes to be uncomfortable when sleeping in a tent in Wisconsin?

Made of the legendary Coolmax fabric, the sleep sack features an effective fiber-based moisture management system, and allowed for a very comfortable night’s sleep. It fit perfectly in my mummy style sleeping bag as the Coolmax itself is in the mummy shape. As a bonus – it was long enough for my 6 foot frame. Serious brownie points there.

Coolmax is a fabric created by a company called Invista; a world leader in integrated fibers and polymers. So I knew that with the combination of such a reputable fabric maker and the well known reputation of Outgo; known for producing high quality items, I had no doubt I would love the Coolmax sleep sack.

And best of all, it neatly folded up and came in a handy little carrying case

The website states that it assists with generating warmth but can also help cool you down. I look forward to testing that theory in July and August, when we have more camping trips scheduled in the dead heat of Wisconsin.
