This is a review of the Teton Sports Tracker sleeping bag.
The TETON Sports Tracker -15ºC/+5ºF UltraLight sleeping bag with body mapping uses innovative PolarLite insulation that keeps you warm even though entire bag is thin and light. A 3-piece no gap hood pulls in perfectly around your face. The bag shapes to body lines and has a vaulted foot-box with an extra layer of fill to keep feet toasty, even in cold weather. Zipper pullers on the inside and outside of bag for easy closure. 87 inches x 34 inches (at widest point) provides more shoulder and leg room. Weighs 4.1 pounds.
- Size 87″ x 34″ x 22″

- Sturdy, water-resistant, diamond ripstop shell
- Interior pocket zips to safely hold electronics or wallet
- Innovative 7-denier interwoven PolarLite insulation gives warmth without bulk
The Teton Sports Tracker is sort of the middle bag in the recent line of Teton Sports sleeping bags. There are two cheaper bags for warmer weather, which both are lighter. There are also two more expensive bags, which are perhaps a bit higher quality. I think for a lot of people, the Tracker is the one that is just right.
Why? Because this is a 5 degree Fahrenheit bag, meaning you’ll be comfortable at 25 degrees or warmer, which really makes it a good pick for the temps when most people sleep out.
The weight makes this the second heaviest bag in the Teton Sports line, at 4.1 pounds. However, that doesn’t really rule it out for all backpacking. For the temperature rating, it is maybe a little heavy, but you would pay a lot more to save a pound in weight.
The bag does pack up really tight into the compression sack (9 x 15 inches) which is handy for hiking. Some people say you can actually get it to be 9 x 12 inches, which is even better.
This bag works for people up to about 6 foot 3 inches tall. The interior is comfy, with a sturdy hood and extra insulation for the foot area. There also is a nice pocket for storing stuff. The bag has a lifetime warranty and a good price.
I would recommend the Teton Sports Tracker for general backpacking or camping. IT’s not ultra lightweight or the best materials money can buy, but this is an affordable bag that will work for a lot of people.
