Kelty inspires next generation to get outdoors with new youth sleeping bag line-up

With bags designed for all kids from “Tots-to-Teens,” Kelty creates fun and exciting ways to get kids connected with the outdoors


BOULDER, COLO. (For Immediate Release) – Dedicated to inspiring the next generation to get outdoors, Kelty is redesigning a complete line of youth sleeping bags to make it easier for parents to find the perfect bag for every young camper. With gender-specific designs, recommended age ranges, campfire recipes, and camp game ideas printed right on the packaging, Kelty helps ensure families have a great time on any camping adventure. Kelty quality and durability ensure years of memories made under the stars.

By blending fun and excitement with simplicity and functionality, Kelty inspires families to discover the wonders of the outdoors together. When parents have an easier time providing a more positive outdoor experience, kids are more likely to develop a life-long love of the outdoors.

“Camping is a wonderful way for families to unplug and spend quality time together,” said Russell Rowell, VP and Brand Manager for Kelty. “By making it easier for parents to find the right equipment, we’re hoping to get more families involved in an active, outdoor lifestyle. Spending time playing in the outdoors is a fun and healthy way for families to connect and we want to encourage that.”

Designed and made with the features and quality that made Kelty a leader in outdoor equipment, each of these bags is comfortable and easy to use, ensuring kids will sleep soundly at the campground, in the backyard, or wherever overnight adventures take them.

Updated with a gender-specific color palate, fun new graphics, improved insulation, and construction derived from our adult bags, this line of sleeping bags looks great and delivers a lifetime of performance. Parents will love the simplicity and price while kids will love the comfort, colors, and graphics.

Including the boy’s and girl’s Woobie 30 ($64.95), boy’s and girl’s Big Dipper 30 ($79.95), boy’s Little Tree 20, and girl’s Little Flower 20 ($74.95), this “Tots-to-Teens” line has the right sleeping bag for kids ranging in age from infants up to 14 years old. Each bag is soft, warm, and highly durable thanks to a polyester taffeta liner and our CloudLoft™ synthetic insulation.

The Woobie 30 fits kids up to 6 years old and features twin, two-way zippers for maximum comfort. For growing 4-12 year olds, the Big Dipper 30 expands a full 12 inches to accommodate kids up to 5’ tall. Older kids in the 10-14 age range will love the boys’ Little Tree 20 and girls’ Little Flower 20 which offer enough versatility to go from sleep-overs to camp-outs.

This line rounds out Kelty’s extensive line of family camping gear, which includes tents, packs, and child carriers, and will debut at the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show in Salt Lake City, July 31st to August 3rd, in the Kelty booth #24026. For more information, please email
