As you know if you’re a regular reader, we are definitely campers as opposed to glampers. We like to keep our set up simple and stick to the essentials. However, that’s not to say that we aren’t willing to inject a little bit of luxury into our outdoor adventures.
I was recently sent a Night Owl 3-in-1 Sleeping Bag from The Fine Bedding Company and have enjoyed trying it out.
Firstly, I was impressed with how smart it looked, definitely a step up from our usual more utilitarian sleeping bags! The colour is a lovely blue, and it is definitely smart enough to use at home for guests. It also feels super soft and snuggly, in fact it really does feel more like a duvet, as opposed to a shiny, slippery sleeping bag. We have used it around the house a lot, it makes a great blanket to cosy up under for family film nights, and it was great when we had family stay over.
The Night Owl 3-in-1 Sleeping Bag looks great and is perfect for using at home or on camping trips
It’s not all style over substance though. The filling is 100% Smartfil® Polyester made from recycled PET bottles and the 7.0 tog rating is enough to keep you warm through 3 seasons.
In the Field
We took the Night Owl 3-in-1 with us to the Lake District last month. Breaking the habit of a lifetime, we ditched the tent in favour of a camping pod at Low Wray Campsite. It wasn’t too cold, but it was very wet and so it was important to be able to get nice and warm at night time when everything was damp. Being October, the nights were getting cooler, and you know how important it is to be warm and comfortable at night when camping. The success of the trip relies on it!
Our last camping trip in October meant the nights were getting cooler so we needed to stay warm
It performed really well, and helped to make our pod super cosy. I also really like the versatility of the Night Owl 3-in-1 Sleeping Bag: you can use it as a double sleeping bag, or two singles, or even just a big blanket if you fancy a duvet day. This helped when we were away as we could adapt to changing sleeping arrangements depending on what we or the kids were doing.

The Night Owl 3-in-1 is very easy to look after. I have washed it a couple of times (I just separate it into 2 singles and pop each in the washing machine). It came out really well both times and dries quickly. It still feels the same as when we got it, and looks in perfect condition.
As you can probably tell the whole family are big fans of this sleeping bag. It’s hard to come up with a negative, it has performed really well, it looks great and is easy to look after. It isn’t especially designed for the great outdoors, but we will definitely use it in the summer for our camping trips, and it is perfect for glamping or caravanning for example. It doesn’t have straps on the bag and so doesn’t pack down as small as our other sleeping bags, but I’m willing to forgive this minor drawback as it’s not designed for the lightweight camping market.
At a RRP of £95 it is not the cheapest sleeping bag, but given its versatility and the fact we use it so much at home between camping trips, I think it is still good value.
