Sleeping Bags - How To Use The Internet To Buy The Most Suitable One!

Jan 12, 2008
The internet has been a boon in many ways for shoppers. No longer are shoppers bound to believe advertisements of any products or service they are in need of. They can do their own research on the internet and see the various reviews written by people who have actually used the product or service before going out and buying them with their hard owned money.

It is the same story with sleeping bags. Use the technology at your disposal and learn something about the product you are in the market to buy. Read about all the kinds and qualities of sleeping bags on offer before you make a decision to buy one.

The internet is agog with information on all the sleeping bags available in the markets. You will be surprised at the simple technicalities that go into making a comfortable and yet durable sleeping bag. So put in some time and do your research, ask questions and find the answers on the internet, visit forums and read the postings by people who have used the product you are considering to buy. Then decide for yourself and make a choice, which will definitely be a more informed one.

Do not be confused by the terminology used on most of the forums. Some terms such as 'mummy bags' temperature rating, draft tubes, fill power and a few other terms can seem quite confusing at first but there are definitions all over the internet.

We will try to describe some here. When you are deciding what type of sleeping bag you are going to need you will need to decide where you are going to use the sleeping bag. You need to choose the proper sleeping bag that suits the climate you are going to use it in, in order to make a good investment. So make yourself familiar with the terms being used then research the many sleeping bags on sale and choose the one best suited to your needs.

Familiarize yourself with this list of terminology that is found on most of the camping forums and camping equipment sites and you will be able to understand the online reviews better.

- Draft tubes; insulation inside the zipper of the bag.

- Fill power; the number of inches of the bag that contains one ounce of down. A good range will be between 550 to 700+ cubic inches.

- Mummy bag; tightly fitting sleeping bag.

- Stuff sack; a bag that stores the sleeping bag.

- Tapered bag; broad at the top and tapering towards the feet.

- Temperature rating; the lowest temperature that the bag will keep a camper warm at.

All sleeping bag reviews will have these descriptions. So don't be fooled, look for the bag that offers the best value for your money. You will never regret a good purchase.
