Here’s a list of the 10 best sleeping bags for tall guys:
1. High Peak Extra Long
The top spot on this list belongs to one that you probably haven’t heard a huge amount about at your local camping store. At a very reasonable $89 the high peak extra long ticks all the boxes. Comfortably fits a 6’8 person, doesn’t break the budget.
- warm and cozy
- Anti-snag zippers
- Tapered fit
- Double layer insulation
If you’re a taller person looking for a versatile sleeping bag that also packs down well than we really cannot recommend this one enough!
Best Feature: Price & Comfort

2. Teton Sports Mammoth Queen Size Sleeping Bag
Technically the Teton Sports Mammoth Queen Size Sleeping Bag is a two person or double sleeping bag – but if you are looking for a giant sleeping bag – this is it.
With a sleeping space of 94 x 62 inches, you are looking at a sleeping bag that is wider than a queen size mattress and longer than a king sized mattress!
The materials are great- a common theme with Teton Sport sleeping bags. You have a flannel liner, a taffeta outer shell, and a fiber insulation that keeps you warm and cozy. All of these materials are very durable too – giving you a long lasting sleeping bag!
You have two choices when it comes to temperature ratings; a 20°F and a 0°F option.
Both will keep you warm in most situations, with the 0°F option being a great choice for cold weather camping. You are looking at a 14 pound sleeping bag if you pick the 20°F choice, and a 16.5 pound sleeping bag if you pick the 0°F option.
You won’t have a shortage of color schemes to pick from – you have olive green, blue, grey, orange, and teal.
Depending on the options you pick, you are going to spend between $120 to $150 to get a giant sized all weather sleeping bag that you are going to love!
3. Western Mountaineering MegaLite
MegaLite is almost perfect in terms of size-to-weight ratio. It doesn’t take up a ton of space when packed, but when lofted, it turns into a big roomy sleeping bag, easily big enough for a 6’7 person.
- quality waterproof material
- soft fabric on the inside
The bag’s breathability is top-notch and it’s great for spring and autumn mountain trips, although it might become a tad hot to sleep in it in summer. The prices are generally around the $400-500 range, but MegaLite is definitely worth every penny. If we did have to nitpick however, the zipper can catch on the fabric at times.
Best Feature: Breathability
4. Coleman Big Game -5°F & Tall Sleeping Bag
Coleman also makes an extra-large sleeping bag that is designed for colder weather camping.
If you know you will want to camp in the late fall and maybe even early winter – the Coleman Big Game -5°F & Tall Sleeping Bag is a great choice.
With a temperature rating of -5°F, this is really designed to be a colder weather sleeping bag.
Realistically I would recommend using this sleeping bag in when the temperature is a little cooler – it can get a little warm using this sleeping bag during the summer (especially if your tent doesn’t have great ventilation).
It is heavy, right around 13 pounds –so it’s not perfect for every situation. It is also machine washable and easy to clean.
Make sure you buy the big & tall version, they do make a standard size in this design as well. The big & tall version should cost you right around $100, and provide you with all the space you need.
If you are going to be cold weather camping, make sure you either have a good Canvas Tent or Winter Weather Tent to go along with your sleeping bag!
5. Extra Long Neutrino Endurance 600
Neutrino Endurance was specially designed for alpine climbers, so it basically caters for the specifics of the sport: it’s very light and compact, but very warm and of a slim-fit variety.
- Mummy taper shape
- YKK coil zipped stash pocket
- Pertex, Rab and Nikwax technology
Beginning at around $700 it’s certainly not in everyone’s budget though. If you’re up to 6’6 tall, have a long winter trip or a mountain climb in your plans and value free space in your backpack, the Neutrino Endurance is a fantastic choice. Just make sure you choose the XL size.
Best Feature: Compactness
There’s nothing more restful as an open-air sleep, if you have a sleeping bag that fits that is…
