Whether it’s for camping, hiking, or a plethora of other activities, sleeping bags are a crucial part of any adventurer’s tool belt. There’s no shortage of options when it comes to buying a sleeping bag, but is it possible to purchase a Canadian-made sleeping bag? Well in this article, I’ll be looking for sleeping bags made in Canada.
Do Any Brands Sell Canadian Made Sleeping Bags? (The Short Answer)
After an extensive search for Canadian made sleeping bags I was only able to find one company that offers them. That company is Taiga Works.
Sleeping Bags Made in Canada (1 Canadian Manufacturer)
Now that we know which company offers Canadian-made sleeping bags let’s look at the business behind the brand for a closer look.
Taiga Works was founded in the early 1980s. It began by manufacturing sleeping bags before branching out into a variety of outdoor equipment, clothing, and supplies. However, sleeping bags are still a large part of the company’s identity and arguably it’s sleeping bags that the company is most well known for.
According to the company’s official website, its outdoor equipment is designed and manufactured at its facility located in Vancouver, British Columbia. It is important to note that not all of Taiga Works’ products are made in Canada. But to make things simpler, the company clearly labels its Canadian-made products so it is very easy to see which of its products are Canadian-made.
For those wanting to take a look at what Taiga Works has to offer, here are some links to some of its Canadian-made sleeping bags.
- Duckdown Barrel Bag (DB1)
- SCHEHERAZADE (B10, 20, 30)
- NIGHT EXPRESS (MZ20, 30, 40)
- MORNING STAR (M20, 30, 40)
According to numerous sources and reviews, Taiga Works’ sleeping bags are some of the best on the market. The company uses top-quality 850+ Fill Power Goose Down to fill its sleeping bags. This makes its sleeping bags incredibly warm whilst also being lightweight and compact. For a deeper look at the inner workings of Taiga Works’ sleeping bags, here’s a link to a more detailed breakdown of its sleeping bags.
I came across one company that might manufacture sleeping bags in Canada. However, I couldn’t find concrete proof of this so it gets an honorable mention.
Hotcore Products is a Canadian-based company located in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada. It manufactures a wide array of outdoor products. This includes several lines of sleeping bags.
Unfortunately, details seem to be a little scarce regarding Hotcore Products’ manufacturing location. I could only find two things about its manufacturing. Firstly, I could only find one address linked to the company. That address is 1987 Parkway Blvd, Coquitlam, British Columbia, V3E 3J8, Canada.
The second thing I found was a phrase plastered across each of the company’s web pages. ‘100% Canadian Owned & Operated.’ This seems to insinuate that its manufacturing is carried out in Canada. Unfortunately, since I couldn’t find concrete proof of it manufacturing its sleeping bags in Canada it doesn’t quite make it onto the list above.
Here is a link to the company’s sleeping bag product page and here’s another containing the company’s contact details. I’d recommend reaching out and enquiring prior to making a purchase to ensure that the sleeping bag you like is Canadian-made.

Sleeping Bags That Are Mistaken as Being Made in Canada
I found one company that was featured on a handful of third-party sites as a Canadian manufacturer. However, a quick look at the company’s website quickly disproves that. Here’s what I found.
Kuma Outdoor Gear
Kuma Outdoor Gear is a Canadian-based company that specializes in all things to do with the great outdoors. I came across this company on several third-party sites claiming that Kuma manufactures its sleeping bags in Canada. This is simply not the case.
I am unsure where these third-party sites are getting their information as a quick look at Kuma’s website clearly states that the majority of its products are made in China and not in Canada. It does say on its website that its products are ‘Designed in Canada,’ perhaps people are confusing the phrase ‘designed in’ for ‘made in’.
If any readers want to take a look at Kuma’s sleeping bags then here’s a link. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t look like any of its sleeping bags are actually manufactured in Canada.
