Choosing the Best Sleeping Bag for You

Mar 2, 2008
There are a lot of sleeping bags that are readily available for purchase on stores and even online. They vary in size, shape and price. Though sometimes you are not sure of which bag suits you the best. There may be times that you think the what that you found may be right for you but after purchasing and inspecting it really well, you then conclude that it is not really for you. Think carefully and weigh in options before buying one.

So, how do you choose that bag which is right for you? Simple, write down what you want it to have. Do you like it oversized and Rectangular in shape? Just put down everything you want and then go to a store or search online for it that has most or everything that you have written.

For example, if you want a bag that enables absorption of heat, then write it down. Such is used when you are camping in a bit cold and chilly location. It helps to have a warm sleeping place so that you will be comfortable and not feeling cold.

There are sleeping bags that have mosquito netting to prevent mosquitoes or other flying insects from biting you. This feature helps in avoiding any unwanted diseases brought about by creepy-crawlies in your camping site.

Mummy sleeping bags are a bit popular among campers because they can easily zip themselves off inside their sleeping bags and keep themselves safe and warm. Just make sure that the zippers are working perfectly so that you can get in and out easily without worrying if the zipper might get stuck along the way.

If you are camping in a place a big humid and not that cold, you might want to consider a silk sleep sack. It is very light and durable too. It is not thick so it makes it easier to carry around and it is lighter compared to the other sleeping bags.

Oversized sleeping bags are suitable for those who want more room to move in and to those who are taller than the average person. Even though it may be a bit heavier than a regular bag, it still has the same function as others have.

So there, you are now given a lot of options to choose from as to which bag you think is best for you. Stick to your preferences and you will find what you are looking for in no time. It also helps to ask your friends or consult a seasoned camper to help you even more in choosing your future sleeping bag. It does not hurt if you invest in it as long as you are sure that you will be able to use it and are happy with it. Also, try to weigh the bag first and decide if you will be able to carry it or not. The lighter, the better but of course it all comes down to what you really want. It is yours anyway.
