Low-cost, tremendous, synthetic, and rectangle describes the Teton Sports Celsius XXL, which is complete with a few lovely features not found on most competitors. It is one of the best sleeping bag under $100.A draft collar helps seal in the warmth in winter and the synthetic lining is a soft, brushed polyester. Teton Sports Celsius XXL is also the only rectangular bag we tested which also has a hood and adjustable to boot. But, the zipper does not extend along the foot of the bag, so that cannot be opened flat into a large blanket.
The Teton Sports Celsius XXL earned average and higher scores in each and every of our metrics. The soft lining is comfortable and its oversized design makes it as the largest bag we test. It’s very roomy and appealing to see from faraway. After getting closer look, we feel the construction and quality of the bag have some room for improvement.

Getting about 80% score for warmth, we feel the Celsius provided excellent warmth down to about 20 degrees and that makes it as one of the best sleeping bag 2018. The soft lining is nice next to bare skin. This bag has exceptional features that contribute to its warmth. It has a draft tube to back of the zipper and a neck collar that can be used to reduce air flow from the top of the bag. This bag has also a sort of minimal hood feature which can also be adjusted tighter to secure or surround the user’s head. This bag uses all the tricks to stop drafts with two different layers of synthetic insulation – the upper layer is sewn to the nylon taffeta shell fabric, and the inner layer is sewn to the brushed poly flannel lining .
The Teton Sports Celsius XXL version we tested is a generous 90 inches long and 36 inches wide. For a single person that’s a lot of room, but the bag is little narrower than the most comfortable bags we tested. We enjoyed the feel of the brushed polyester lining of the bag.
Our one dissatisfaction is that the zipper on this bag does not extend along the foot box, which prevents the user from unzipping the bag fully to act as a blanket. Overall, the bag’s pure size gave it a score of 8 out of 10 for comfort.
Soft lining and draft collar are most noteworthy features of this bag. Two big webbing loops sewn into the foot of the bag near the corners provide for relaxed hanging. The zipper closing flap secures on itself to hide the prickly Velcro. We were impressed with the bag’s water-resistant shell, and equally impressed with Teton Sport’s limited lifetime warranty. However, we were disappointed with the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions, which specify hand washing only and lying flat to dry. The instructions specifically state not to tumble dry, and that machine washing voids the warranty. We feel this is a negative.
Teton Sports Celsius XXL sleeping bag comes with one of the best stuff sacks of the bunch. It has compression straps as backpacking sacks, which also suitably double as a carrying handles. The Teton Sports Celsius XXL is right in the middle of the bunch in packed size, and you could really cinch it down with the compression straps if space is at a premium. Weighing in at 7 lbs 8 ounces, it’s fairly heavy.
This is a great, committed car camping bag, especially for folks that want a huge, rectangular bag which doesn’t include cotton fabrics. With all synthetic materials, this bag is better suited to extend camping when it might get wet. Unfortunately it doesn’t unzip to make a blanket, limiting its use for picnics or around the house use.
The Teton Sports Celsius XXL is very reasonable at $70 with warmth and comfort contributed to a high overall score. However, when we considered that our Editors’ Choice, the price to value of the Teton Sports Celsius XXL seems to fade.
