Makes anything cozy

It's not the least bit compact, but ideal for swags. It makes a standard 50mm swag mattress feel really thick and acts like a big pillow top.
Being cotton it feels great compared to synthetic bags. Unfortunately it will absorb moisture a little more but it has never been an issue. I bought one and have 4 of them now! (2 zipped together in a double swag and 2 in single swags).

sleeping bag

It is a pretty useless sleeping bag that would never work at minus 5 degrees. Unless one has several other blankets it never keeps warm in frost. It absorbs humidity a lot and gets pretty wet, it is just for summer, or spring, never for minus 5 degrees. Not satisfied at all.

Response from Snowys Sep 22 2016

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have a cozy night sleep Dalia. It comes as quite a surprise, normally customers rave about their Pilbara C-5's. If you're willing to give your sleeping bag another go, I strongly suggest using a sleeping mat/bed with foam insulation rather than just air. The insulation will help retain your body heat for a warmer nights sleep. I really hope this helps and for any more tips for a warmer sleep, please give me a call (1300 914 007). Laine :)

Great Bag!

Versatile, well designed and warm bag suited to car camping. I've slept in the just the zip out liner and have used the unzipped outer as a doona. Perfect match for the Exped Megamat LXW. I've also treated the exterior with water repellant spray as it will absorb water. Awesome price and service from Snowy's.. my go to gear guys..!!!

Fantastic Bag

very warm and comfortable bag. Purchased for my wife who loved it over Easter in 5-8 degrees C nights in Western Vic. I borrowed it (cunning purchase) for high country trip in late April for zero degree nights. Loved it. Hard to get up in the morning.

This is a big bag, plenty of room to sleep in, and consequently it is large when packed in its bag. I highly recommend this bag.

Snuggly Bag

This is the best sleeping bag i've ever had.
Its cotton, so no sweaty polyesters to rustle about & slip all over the place.
Its 4 way versatile.
There is a removable fleece blanket inside so you can zip it out & just use that.I lay on the folded bag,It makes a great nest.
Or you can open out the bag and use it as a doona.
Or you can zip it up and climb inside the flannelette cocoon.
Or when it gets down to -4deg, zip the blanket back in. You'll be snug as!

Large bag that feels like HOME!

This product is ace. Hands down the best sleeping bag I've ever owned. Do note that this bag is not built for compact carry. Fortunately I wasn't needing to save on space for the purpose of having this bag - I just wanted a warm/cold-climate bag. If you're looking for compactly packaged bag you'll need to look elsewhere. That said, the removable fleece lining is so warm, it was a dream to sleep in. If you feel you'll get to hot in it, you can just move to outside of this lining. Lots of room too

Are the Pilbara C-5 and C-3 sleeping bags machine washable?1 answers

They are Tony. A front loader on gentle cycle will keep your Pilbara sleeping bag in tip top condition.

How do I zip the L and R bags together?1 answers

- Adelaide(1 year ago)
Hi Alex, even though these bags have left and right zippers, they need to be laid on top of each other to zip together. This does mean that one hood will be on the top of the combined bags, whilst the other will be on the bottom. The details on Coleman's website claim that these bags have a separate foot zip, when in fact it is one full length zipper along the side and foot.

A question about the Pilbara C-5 design1 answers

Can you tell me if Coleman C-r opens up all the way around. What size is it when packed up. Comparing with Oztent Rivergum Sleeping Bag. Which would you consider to be better option with regard to function in the cold. Don't know how reliable the temperature rating is. They both have removable fleece liner which I like. Do they both have a drawstring to close in around shoulders. Thanks

- Glossodia(1 year ago)
Hi Narelle, both bags have full length zippers along the side and bottom, the only difference being that the Pilbara has a single full length zip, while the Rivergum has two, one side and one bottom zip. I have updated the packed sizes on our website, the Pilbara C-5 is slightly smaller. Temperature comfort ratings are pretty reliable at -5⁰C for the Pilbara and -10⁰C for the Rivergum, and the Pilbara has no drawstring around the neck, unlike the Rivergum. Quality is on par for both products, the choice really coming down to temperature ratings. Hope this helps.
