Choosing the Ideal Sleeping Bag for Winter Camping

It may be winter but that doesn’t stop us from going out and doing what we enjoy. If you love camping, you’ll want to go whenever you can. Winter or the blistering and unforgiving weather won’t stop you. Sleeping bags are an important piece of camping equipment, so how do you choose the best one for you?

The factors to consider is the following:

  • Size
  • Material
  • Storage

Size: The size is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a sleeping bag. Choosing the correct size is dependent on your body size and whether you prefer a loose or snug fit. The more comfortable you are the better you will sleep.In the size category there are four options available, namely 2.1m (05/SL055), 2.06m (05/SB893), 2.2m (05/SB920) and 2.3m (05/SB040).

Material: What it is made off, should be the next question. Depending on the type of camping you do and what you find comfortable, the material is an extremely important factor. The options in this category include Fleece Inserted, this sleeping bag has a soft inner fleece and thick padding which provides for a warmer and softer sleeping experience. Also, there are options with built-in cushions that give your neck and head the necessary support and comfort for a good night’s rest.

The other options available are the 190T Rib-Stop Fabric. They are available in 300g or 400g polyester hollow fibre filling. The inner fabric comes in either 190T polyester or 180g poly fleece. They come in either cowl or rectangular styles. There is an option of a rubberised back which is best if you tend to move in your sleep or sleep on a surface that can be slippery. The materials used in these sleeping bags are to ensure that they remain lightweight and warm.

Storage: the last question you should ask yourself is how easy is it to pack, carry and store the bag? All the sleeping bags should come with a handy carry bag. They also roll up into themselves and fit into the bag making them compact and easy to store and carry.

Sleeping bags are essential camping equipment so whether you go camping in the hot summer nights or cold winter days, finding one that is warm and comfortable is the main objective. Be careful not to choose a material that may harm or aggravate your skin.
