472Kelty sent us two of their Big Dipper 30 Junior Boy’s Sleeping Bags to review.

DSCN4789The sleeping bags come with storage bags that wrap snugly around them.

DSCN4791The storage bags are held securely with two buckles that can be tightened.

DSCN4790And they have handles for easy carrying.

DSCN4792The really unique thing about the storage bags is that they are attached to the sleeping bags.

DSCN4798And, to tuck them out of the way, there’s a pocket at the foot of the sleeping bag. This idea is genius since kids tend to lose things. Having the carrying bag attached prevents loss!

DSCN4802Each sleeping bag zips up with ease and has a cover to hold down the top of the zipper so it’s not flapping in anyone’s face.

DSCN4801Each sleeping bag has a mummy-style shape complete with a hood. Instead of having draw cords to keep the hood around the head, it has elastic. This prevents the child from possible strangulation.

DSCN4803On the back of the hood is a pocket with hook and loop closures. This is to stuff a camping-size pillow. Clever!

DSCN4795Here is the interior of one of the sleeping bags. It’s a pleasant gray color and feels very comfy.

DSCN4796On the inside of the sleeping bag (on the front part towards the top of the zipper) is a pocket with a hook and loop closure. This is handy for keeping certain items close like a flashlight.

DSCN4800A really helpful feature of the sleeping bags is that their length can expand. Unzip them around the foot and voila–an extra foot to grow as your child does.

DSCN4799The last helpful feature I’ll mention is the loops at the bottom of the sleeping bags. This makes it handy to hang up should the bag get wet for any reason.

DSCN4805Here’s the silly Little Mister test driving one of the sleeping bags.

I love pretty much everything about these sleeping bags. I love that they’re smaller to hold our kids. I love the colors on them. And I love their clever features–everything from how they can be lengthened to how the storage bag is attached and can be tucked into its own special pocket. They’re really neat, really helpful sleeping bags!
