The Voodoo Tactical 0° Sleeping Bag is an overbuilt tactical and military spec sleeping bag that will keep you warm to 0°F with proper clothing. The double-layer construction bag is filled with 4 pounds of hollow fill micro-fiber loft and has a chest baffle, zipper draft tube to keep the cold out along with an adjustable neck and shoulder draft collar with cord-lock to trap body heat. The padded, adjustable hood traps head warmth and helps to prevent loss of body heat, and comes complete with a polyurethane coated compression stuff sack.
Voodoo Tactical is a brand of MOLLE compatible and related tactical gear designed in consultation with Todd Swank, a well-known sniper currently serving in a major metropolitan police department. Todd is also a firearms instructor, former army ranger and a member of Team Voodoo Tactical, which competes on the national SWAT competition circuit and in other firearms competitions.
- The Price!
- Great warmth-weight ratio
- Highly Compressible
- Plenty of Room
- The full length zipper had a tendency to stick
- At 4 lbs, it is heavier than I would like
- The straps and buckles on the compression sack could be higher quality
When fully compressed, The Voodoo Tactical 0°F Sleeping Bag measures 5.5 x 16 inches – which is pretty small for an amateur (sub-$300) three season bag. Rolled out, the bag is 82′ long (overall) and 27′ wide at the shoulders. The included compression sack helps keep the bag to a size that is easy to fit into a pack or attach underneath.
While rated at 0°F, I was only able to test it down to 25°F. At 25° I had to remove a layer of clothing, the bag was so warm. One downside to the bags spacious interior is that any draft from an open head area will push right down the bag. The adjustable hood and shoulder draft collar are great features that help to keep those drafts away.
The Voodoo Tactical sleeping bag sacrifices weight for durability and comfort. While perhaps a bit too heavy for serious mountain climbing, it has a great array of features for the price, including:
- Full barrel foot
- YKK #10 Zippers
- Inside Stash Pocket
- Chest Baffle
- Zipper Draft Tube
- Adjustable Neck and Shoulder Collar
- Adjustable Hood
- Compression Sack
- 4lbs Microfiber Fill
- Tie-on points to hang the bag for drying
For $55, the Voodoo Tactical 0F sleeping bag is an outstanding bargain. It is a warm and durable bag that is perfect for bug out or get home bags. While a bit heavy, it is not overly so, and it is an inexpensive option in a market that is known for being pricey. Here at Disaster Ridge, we are happy to recommend this bag. It is an imminently practical piece of gear for any disaster preparation. Head over to Amazon and get yours today!
