Vango Wilderness Junior Penguin Review

We have been sent a Vango Wilderness Junior Penguin sleeping bag from Silverfox Travel and Outdoors to review; eldest had been eagerly awaiting its delivery.  

Our only camping trip so far was on a family camping weekend, which really opened our eyes to all the creature comforts that you really need when camping, soft, warm bedding certainly make it a more cosy experience and packing an inflatable mattress is also highly recommended!!!

The biggest problem we encountered when we camped was keeping the kids in their sleeping bags and getting them off to sleep, we only had generic sleeping bags and it was plain to see that the boys craved a more inventive sleeping arrangement.  Well you cannot beat a penguin design for that, eldest loves the idea that he becomes a penguin when he is in his sleeping bag and is awaiting his next adventure.  We have had to make several dens in the house for him to camp in whilst waiting for the real thing, which goes to show the extra enthusiasm he now has for his sleeping bag!

Apart from looking great the Vango sleeping bag is also highly practical it comes with its own compression sack that helps when you’re packing your car boot to its maximum capacity and every little bit of space counts!  

The sleeping bag itself has been designed for two-season use, spring and summer making this sleeping bag ideal from 8 to 20°C.  It has a two-way zip making it easier to open from the inside or outside of the bag, which is good so children can manage it themselves without getting frustrated.

The inside of the sleeping bag has soft polyester lining for extra comfort while the outer skin is a durable polyester microfiber. The price of the Vango Wilderness Junior Penguin sleeping bag is £27.50, which is possibly at the higher end of the junior market but for the overall quality and the novelty factor is a price I would gladly pay to get a further one for my youngest, seeing as he is already pinching it for himself!
