The Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag is built for the tourer who likes to enjoy oversized comfort in the elements.
The entire bag is made from cotton, so it’s comfy and breathable. It also has a soft comfort cuff at the top for burrowing down in your bag. The Pilbara also features a removable flannel inner sheet, to keep your bag clean and add to the overall warmth. You won’t have to grope about blindly on the tent floor for your phone – as the Pilbara C-5 comes with an internal pocket for keeping your device close by.
If your feet are the first thing that always gets freezing cold, then the cosy foot fleece in the base of the bag will keep your toes from turning to icicles. On the other hand, if you’re a hot sleeper the separate foot zip allows you to stick your feet out or get some cool air. The Pilbara has a snag free zipper, so you can get in and out in a jiffy in the dark without a battle on your hands.
When you’re all done snoozing, the roll control helps you keep is straight while you pack it back into the included 4-way compression stuff sack. For a warm and roomy sleeping experience, the Coleman Pilbara C-5 fits the bill perfectly.
Needed a warm sleeping bag and this bag did not disappoint. Roomy, warm and well made. Big once in bag but worth the space in my opinion
We purchased two of these. They are soft and warm. Lots of room to move, easy to clean. would highly recommend. Used in cold overnight conditions and kept everyone warm and cozy.
This sleeping bag is roomy and snuggly warm. I have it in the Mouse House on my single bed and it has saved me a lot of frustration trying to work with sheets and blankets At the moment I’m near Bathurst heading next to Albury then Melbourne before taking the van to Tassie. I am so glad I bought this bag before setting off in my adventure.
Awesome bag, very comfortable and roomy and I am 6ft. Was sleeping in 2 and 3 degree temperatures and was still very warm. Would definitely recommend.
Snowys always gets 5 out of 5. This 4 star is just for the bag. Very comfy and roomy for me at 6'3". The natural materials means I don't sweat at night which is a big bonus. My only real gripe is that it is not really warm enough. I've had -5 bags before and used them in a tent well below freezing. This is used in a motor home when it is plus 7 inside and I'm still cold.
I purchased 3 of these for my girls, they feel the cold and always stuggle to stay warm
Problem over they love these bags
Purchased 2 of these bags for some winter camping and have not been disappointed. Keeping warm has meant a good nights sleep. Used already 3 times this winter and plan a few more times before it's over. The ability to join 2 bags together is also a plus.
i have the older hooded version, and its hands down the best bag i've ever owned.. yes its a bit heavy and bulky, but works fine in my swag roll and it feels like i'm sleeping at home.. the extra length and width make all the difference, giving heaps of room to move without getting tangled up, and not being anything synthetic makes it super comfortable. The removable liner makes it season adjustable, and its big enough to slip in another thick liner for the super cold nights.. Plus the inner liner is now my summer bag and the rest becomes extra mattress padding .. best nights sleep out bush i've ever had..
I bought this as a present for my husband. Although he is a manly man, he is also a giant princess when it comes to his sleep system. This bag passed the test. He even went as far as saying it was as comfortable as being at home in bed. Well he ought to be comfortable- he had the worlds biggest, thickest matt and brought his own (2!) pillows from home.
Obviously a bag this big is only good for car camping, although he will also use it for dirt bike trips...with his really nice wife running a support vehicle.
Was I pleased with this purchase? Yes, it represented excellent value for a well rested, non-complaining husband while camping.
Hi, I am comparing this Coleman Pilbara C5 with the Roman Camper Double 400. In regards to softness/comfort which would you recommend? We would want to zip them together to make a double sleeping bag.
The Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag can be zipped to another to make a double with no worries, they are rated to minus five and will come in individual stow bags. Zipping two together will give you 200cm of width. The Roman Camper Double is already a double so you only need to purchase one bag, this one will give you 165cm of width,
Hi there, just after for sleeping bags for myself, wife and 5 years old daughter. Would you guys recommend to actually buy a kids sleeping back for my daughter or could I go for the same back for the 3 of us. The Coleman Pilbara c-5.
The Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag is a great bag, and I reckon you'll be stoked with it. As for whether or not you should get a kids' sleeping bag for your daughter, whilst it won't be quite as warm for her as it is for the adults because of the air pockets, it's still a pretty warm sleeping bag, plus, you'll not need to upgrade each time she grows. I have an adult's sleeping bag for my 6-year-old daughter and she loves it.
Just curious as I want to use this bag in summer.
When you take the liner out of the Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag, it effectively becomes the same bag as the Pilbara C0 Sleeping Bag which is rated at 0°.
For zipping 2 bags together is there a left hand & a right hand option or 2x just zip straight together after opening right up?
There aren't left or right-hand options with the Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag, you'd just need to open them both up and go from there like you were suggesting.
Hi, I already have one of the old c-3 versions of this bought about a year ago, but you don't seem to be able to purchase that one anymore. What is the difference with the C-5 and can the old model and new model zip together? Same goes for c0. Are they same size allowing you to zip together? Many thanks
I’ve just spoken to Coleman about this, and to their knowledge, the zipper has not changed in size so in theory the discontinued C-3 can be zipped together with the C-5.
We don’t have the old one to confirm this for you, so just keep that in mind. Sorry we couldn't give you a definitive answer Emma.
Is it possible to join two together into a large double bag?
You'll have absolutely no worries zipping two of the Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bags together. Just lay one out like a blanket and then lay the other on top, zip them together and away you go!
Hi, how does this sleeping bag compare to the Blackwolf Zambezie, in the sense of retaining heat? Slightly different materials used in the fill material and & fill weight, do you recommend one over the other? Also does this Pilbara have left and right zip to join together? I noticed the previous model did. Thanks.
In terms of heat retention, there isn't a great deal of difference because while the fill is different, they've been designed to their temperature ratings of -5C for the Pilbara and -6C for the Zambezie.
We'd recommend either of the bags but please note that the Zambezie is being updated and current stock is being cleared out.
Unfortunately, the new model Coleman Pilbara sleeping bags don't have alternate zips, but they can still be joined by laying one flat on top of the other.
Does this bag unzip so that it can be used like a doona?
Yes - the Coleman Pilbara C-5 Sleeping Bag can be unzipped along the side and bottom to open up like a doona.
Hi, I was wondering if there is a difference in weight/feel from the included inner fleece vs the coleman stratus? Thank you!
I've just gone and physically had a feel of both the texture and weight and I personally can't notice a difference between the included fleece liner and the Coleman Stratus.
Hi, I was just wondering if the Pilbara C-5 is the same as the C-0 but with the extra flannel lining? Or is there a difference in the fill weight as well? Would the C-5 be still cool enough for summer camping? (thinking of this model as it might give more versatility) Thank you!
The main difference between the Coleman Pilbara Sleeping Bag models is as you've mentioned the Removable Fleece Liner and that the C-5 is rated to -5C, whereas the C-0 is rated to 0C.
There is no difference in the fill weight - both 1 x 250gsm.
In regards to summer camping, that's a tough question as there are so many variables based on outside temperature, body temperature etc. The decision is very much up to how much warmth you think you'll require. The benefit of the liner, however, means you can be more flexible with your warmth arrangement (if too hot - you can remove the liner or too cold - you can add the liner).
Is there anything special about zip clasp?
We've just had a play with at the display model of the Pilbara C-5 Bag myself and it seems this is the best way to remove the liner.
There are two zippers at the top, a red one with a ‘Ziplow’ tag, and a plain one. Hold them together tightly between your left hand’s finger and thumb making sure they are lined up straight.
With your right hand, pull the sheet towards yourself. You will have to use a little bit of force. Once it’s through the first zipper, keep pulling til it’s out of the second one - then it the liner/sheet should be removed.
It took me one or two times to get the hang of it, but if you are having any more trouble give us a call.
