Offering more comfort than the Jardine, but not quite as warm as the Samurai, the Zambezie Jumbo Hooded Sleeping Bag is the most popular choice in the Black Wolf range.
A soft flannel lining, contoured hood, and 300gsm of fill provides warm comfort on chilly nights, while full length zips enable the bag to be opened up if the temperature is mild.
Decked out with all the features you would want in a sleeping bag including draft flaps, anti-snag zips and an internal security pocket, the Zambezie jumbo hooded still includes a pillow slip and comes in four colour choices despite the value for money price tag.

  • -6°C Temperature rating.
  • Anti bite zipper guard.
  • Draft collar.
  • Draft flap over zip.
  • Countoured hood with pillow slip.
  • Internal security pocket.
  • Machine washable.
  • Includes compression bag.

G'day Mick,

Thanks for posting your review - hopefully I can help. You must be a pretty cool sleeper, as these bags are normally toasty warm.

Sleeping bag ratings are bit tricky as everyone's different - so we wrote a blog post on Understanding Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings. To make sure you have a cozy nights sleep in your new Zambezie sleeping bag, take a look at this post too - 5 Toast Tips To Make Your Sleeping Bag Warmer

With the zipper snag issue, can we help out in any way? Would it be a warranty issue? If so, please give us a call on 1300 914 007. Cheers, Laine

Sleeping bag

Love this bag.
It is a decent size, but still compact when stored.
Well worth the price.

Super comfy and warm

Love the jumbo size, it's perfect for people who move around when they sleep and don't want to be restricted. Very cosy and warm - the inner fleece is perfect for camping in lower temperatures and is really soft.

Excellent value.

A great quality product and seems to work really well for me, although I haven’t used it in snow or under zero degrees yet. The full zip also makes it handy to be able to be used as a blanket.

Great value for money

Nice sleeping bag. Used it camping in the snow. Tent collapsed under the weight of snow but sleeping bag worked great!

Cold night Camping at 4 degrees :(

I recently purchased this sleeping bag and was disappointed. For such a well known and respected brand I was cold at 4degrees! (not -4 it was +4 degrees). It was comfortable and the zips worked well with no snagging.

Hi Michelle, we too are disappointed to hear that your sleeping bag is not living up to your expectations. There are a number of considerations for sleeping warm whilst camping. Being a female I would expect that you may feel the cold before the rated temperature, plus the type of mattress, clothes you wear, and your metabolism should be considered. We are confident in the performance of these sleeping bags, so please give us a call, we would like to help you sleep warm on your next trip. Ben.

Black wolf samurai and zambezie1 answer

Hi, Can the samurai and zambezie zip together if we have 1 left samurai zipper and 1 right zambezie zipper. Thanks

- Parramatta (1 year ago)

G'day Karen,

I've just confirmed with the display models that you can zip a Zambezie and Samurai sleeping bag together as long as one is a right, and the other is a left.

The Zambezie, Jardin and Samurai are all the same size and have the same zips (their differences are the amount of filling) so they can be zipped together interchangeably.

comparison between Black Wolf Samurai & Zambeezie1 answer

Most of my sleeping bag use is in tents, shearing huts & my Kamp Rite Cot I do camp all year round - can't make up my mind between the Black wolf .Samurai, B/wolf Zambezie jumbo hooded and even the Roman Big man - what do you think. Compression storage is important

- CARINGBAH, NSW(1 year ago)
Any of these would be suitable Gene, but I'll try and make a few points that may help with your decision. The Roman Big Man Hooded is the bulkiest when packed, the Zambezie the smallest (by only a few cm under the Samurai). I think that for all-year-round camping, the Samurai with a -10°C rating would be the best choice. It can be used as a doonah during summer, and will keep you warm in the depths of winter. If compression size (of which the Roman Big man is about 15% bigger) was not a consideration, I would recommend the Roman. It's temperature rating is generous and it has a spacious cut. I hope this helps.

Does this have a zip on the side and another on the end?1 answer

Can it open out to a quilt?

- BELL POST HILL, VIC(1 year ago)
Hi Elizabeth, this sleeping bag does have two zippers, one down the side and one across the bottom. You can open it up fully to use it as a quilt.

Will A Black Wolf Self Inflating Deluxe Pillow fit into the pillow slip?1 answer

- Wanneroo/Perth(1 year ago)
Certainly doers Brent, I tested it this morning for you. It's a snug fit, I found it easiest to insert the pillow partially deflated, position it then let it inflate in the sleeve.

Can these be zipped together to make a double?1 answer

Can these bags be zipped together to make 1 big bag?

- Edithvale (1 year ago)
Sure can Dave, provided you get a left and right zip combination. As a general rule, if two bags are ordered we always send this combination, but don't hesitate to call and confirm if/when you place an order as there is no function to specify this on the website (yet!).

Are the hoods removable?1 answer

- Armidale(2 years ago)
The hoods are fixed on these Becky. The only sleeping bag we have with a removable hood is the Black Wolf Tuff All Season, but this is quite a different bag to the Zambezie in that is is warmer, bulkier and heavier.
