OUR TAKE Replacing your kid’s sleep system every year or two as she grows can cost a small fortune. Enter the Duster, which has hooks and loops that shorten or lengthen the bag to fit children from 4’5” to 5’6”. The fabric loops (three to adjust length and four to adjust width) secure with plastic hooks and are simple enough that a 4-year-old can adjust them. They stayed cinched even through restless nights.
THE DETAILS Like Big Agnes’s adult models, the Duster has a pad-integration system, which was perfect for keeping squirrelly sleepers on top. It also has a draft collar and zipper tube to seal out the cold. Synthetic fill helps keep cost low.
TRAIL CRED “Temps dropped into the 20s in Arches, but the Duster kept my 4-year old daughter warm, so she didn’t have to add any midnight layers,” one mom says.
