The Basecamp has been designed for those customers who find a mummy bag restrictive, and who would prefer to enjoy a little more comfort and stretch out space whilst escaping outdoors.
The Basecamp offers a contoured rectangular design to accomodate sleepers who like to stretch out full length, or those who like to curl up into a ball. It is also a fantastic solution for the restless sleeper who can now toss and turn in comfort, without being woken up because of a restrictive bag design.
If you are looking for the ultimate in camping comfort, the Basecamp has also been designed to work with our Air Sprung Cell sleeping mats and Aeros Pillows to create a truly comprehensive sleep system. Slide your mat into the small pocket at the foot of the bag and then use the strap and loop set-up to secure the upper section. Then inflate your Aeros Pillow to the perfect pressure, before securing it into place with the elasticised strap underneath the hood.
No matter which way the weather turns, the Basecamp bag can be both modified to suit. Zip yourself in and pull the internal drawcords tight to combat the cold. If the weather takes a turn towards summer, then you can vent the feet, or unzip one or both sides to keep yourself cool and comfortable. The BaseCamp is also so much more than just a sleeping bag, the dual zipper design means that it can transform from a substantial and sumptuous sleeping bag into a svelte summer quilt. The bottom of the quilt holds its shape as a roomy footbox, and a series of attachment loops even lets you secure your quilt onto your mat to ensure maximum warmth.

Great all season bag for wriggle roomBy: Kay Thomas on 1 October 2018I purchased this bag from Wild Earth a few years ago and I love it! It arrived quickly as all my orders have (thanks Wild Earth) and I immediately felt comfortable with more leg room. I’ve used the bag in all seasons now, including below 0 in the mountains and it’s been perfect. I need not have worried about the really cold nights, I was toasty warm. I like the opening options too but the most important thing for me has been space to move my legs and warmth. My bag has meet all my camping needs!
My review of SEA TO SUMMIT BASECAMP 3 BCIII PREMIUBy: Melker Blomström on 29 March 2018I’m a larger bloke who loves to camp and hike. That being said there isn’t much in the way of camping gear that above average folks can fit into. This bag is the exception. I am a side sleeper also and this bag kept me toasty warm whilst allowing me to move freely within. I wore my merino thermals in -10 winter hike and was completely comfortable if a little warm. The following night I skipped the thermals. Best sleeping bag I have tried for winter camping, relatively light weight; there are lighter but they are mummy type bags; and very warm. Best money spent on a sleep system thus far.
Review of S2S base campBy: Ryan on 5 July 2017The Basecamp is a big roomy sleeping bag that is very warm. It does not pack down very small but is still light enough for most. The pad and pillow straps make it very easy to keep everything together during the night so it is a great bag if you can't use mummy shape bags or like a little more room
Basecamp (BCIII) reviewBy: Sharon on 2 March 2017I am extremely happy with the BCIII down sleeping bag. It is made of high quality materials which are very soft on your skin. The bag is very spacious with zipping on both sides plus a separate foot zip which is great if you like to have your feet uncovered. The bag is just the right warmth for me and of course the colour "RED" is perfect. The bag is easy transport if packed into its compression BAG (which comes with the BCIII) due to its generous sizing. The Wild Earth customer service was fantastic!!!
