Description / British Jungle Sleeping Bag with Compression Bag

The British Army is tasked with defending British interests all around the world. This defense includes providing assistance and support to former British colonies who are now independent, including those that are located in jungle or tropical climates.

Recognizing the need to support these soldiers, the British Army had this excellent jungle sleeping bag produced to offer a lightweight sleeping bag that is ideal for jungle climates. With jungle or tropical climates sometimes having excessively hot nights, a compression sack was always issued to allow the jungle sleeping bag to remain stowed if it was not required to be used due to the heat at night. By using a compression sack for storage, soldiers were able to carry a sleeping bag in the smallest profile possible to leave room for other essential gear.

When dealing in military surplus, certain surplus products are always in demand. One of the most in demand surplus items are military sleeping bags and the most in-demand sleeping bags are specialized ones for specific climates. These jungle sleeping bags are the first summer sleeping bags we have ever been able to source in Europe making them one of the rarest specialized sleeping bags. When we were able to also procure the original compression sacks, we knew that our customers would want these sleeping bags.

great product!

Bought 2, basically as new, extremely satisfied!
Great lightweight sleeping bag
Review by Dermot
I really bought this after looking for a cheap, quality sleeping bag, and I am very happy with my purchase. Useful for warmer more humid climates, this light and versatile sleeping bag can also be thrown in the car in case of emergencies. The compression sack really cuts down on the size, another bonus for me. Quality stuff.

offers great options
Review by Michael
What a great summer sleeping bag in small compressible bag! Many different ways it can be used. Unzips so can be used as a great blanket. Small size and light weight means can be carried around in so many ways. A step up in warmth from just the poncho liner I've used for years when camping. Another good use is using to sleep in hotels if you don't want to use hotel sheets. Also appreciate fast delivery and excellent condition of the sleeping bag/compression bag.
Light as a feather
Review by Paul
This bag compresses small and light. Don't even know its there.
Plus it is very comfortable. For warm climates, I highly recommend this bag.
Not for big boys...
Review by Sixgun
I'm 6'1 299.9 lbs. Size XXL shirt. The bag is too narrow for me to zip up if I want my arms inside as well. Other than that it's great. Nice and compact, I will keep it in my truck for emergency use.
What else can be said?
Review by Zack
I got 2 of these bags for camping in the summer months here in Nevada and all the other reviews hit the nail right on the head. Quality, easily compacts, comfortable and VERY affordable. Really a must have.
A steal for $20
Review by tom
Just like the title says. You will not find a better sleeping bag for $20 anywhere else. And this is not even taking into account the compression sack that comes with it. Nice zippers.It is a 3 season bag. It also unzips into a blanket. Great find.
awesome bag, fantastic deal
Review by George
I live in Texas, where in the summer a sleeping bag served me as a pillow rather than as a bag. This bag is great for this climate. Just got it, new tags still on it. Looking forward to trying it out this week. Had used US patrol bag in both Bosnia and Iraq as my bugout kit sleeping bag, and have bought two since retiring. But they don't open out like this one. So anxious to compare utility of this one. I carry gear in my 260 mile commute to work, and this bag will probably the primary bag in my kit. In the past, I tried using just a pile bag liner, but if a wind picks up, any heat disappears. Need a shell, so now anything I carry that may be used in the open, has to have a shell. As for care, REI and other backpacking outfitters carry specific soaps, that with a commercial front load washer and dryer will take great care of your bag. (Dry-cleaning here in Texas would cost more than the bag). I'll be ordering more for presents for friends and family. Thanx KS, this one is a magnum load.
Perfect Summer Bag!!!
Review by Sigmund
Ordered one as soon as it popped up, great condition, perfect for summer camping, it compressed down to the size of a softball, so perfect to keep in the car. Hopefully you got a bunch of these because they are great.
Perfect Sleeping Bag
Review by Conrad
This jungle bag surpassed all expectations. for 20 dollars you will not find a better product. I live in Florida and love to do a lot of primitive camping. This product is the best thing ever. The inside is super soft and it zips all the way out to form a blanket if need be. I could literally not ask for a better sleeping bag for the price. Thanks KS!
Brand New Sleeping Bag
Review by Jedediah the GyroCaptain
Great sleeping bag; I was lucky to get one as I thought they'd all be sold out. A few random points:

* These are great lightweight sleeping bags; a little lighter than the US Army's patrol bag, but heavier than a poncho liner.

* Both the bag and the compression sack are brand new, and still in the factory plastic bag.

* The compression sack is worth the price by itself--its the correct compression sack for this sleeping bag, too.

* The top of the bag, where your head would be, can either lie flat or be turned into a mummy bag by drawstrings. You can also unzip the bag and use it as a light blanket.

* This bag could also be used as a liner inside of another bag to add to the temperature rating.

* Finally, the price. Look for a lightweight sleeping bag at REI or Erewhon--you'll pay far more than the $20 Keep Shooting wants. Seriously, even if you don't need another sleeping bag, buy this one. You'll be glad you did.
Incredible deal..
Review by Michael
Got mine in last week. This is the legit British army issued jungle (warm weather) sleeping bag AND matching compression sack. The compression sack alone is top quality and worth ten bucks.

My sleeping bag is perfect for my long frame (6'2) and plenty wide enough for wiggle room and pocketed warmth. Came brand spanking new, pristine. A little sign from storage on the tags but completely unblemished.

This is a freaking amazing product and and incredible deal that leaves you wondering how they hell these people make their margins. It is THE ideal warm weather sleeping bag and I would hazard to guess could go down to about 45 degrees comfortably. Total package weighs 2.7 pounds.

I will be back for another!
Review by Stuart
Great bargain for the price. If it's jungle or high desert, this bag is perfect. I bought one for inside my truck, and my wife is already pestering me to get another for her.
Great Value
