Coleman Sleeping Bag - 4 Essential Factors For Choosing The Perfect Sleeping Bag

Jan 12, 2008
A must-have camping mate is the Coleman sleeping bag, which is great for the seasoned, occasional or beginner camper. It's an inventive and well-researched product of the Coleman Company, which has been involved in the outdoor gear manufacturing field for close to a century and its name, has always been regarded as backing quality. Thus, the Coleman sleeping bag is available in a wide range of styles and comes equipped to meet all individual, environmental and budget needs of camping enthusiasts everywhere!

Now, comes the question of selecting the perfect Coleman sleeping bag; a fairly easy task for those that know which features to consider:

1) Beginning with learning about the environment where the bag will be used, one can expand on other important elements like hoods and ventilation. The season you go camping in to the temperature of the outside camping environment and further still,

2) The location of the camping ground are all deciding factors for choosing a Coleman sleeping bag. For instance, a lightweight sleeping bag won't prove adequate protection against the chill of outdoor camping in Winter as unsuitable as a heavy-weight, feather-filled one will be in sweaty August! Keeping all these changing weather and camper's needs in mind, the Coleman Company has introduced various types of Coleman sleeping bag choices with cool features like Vent ducts (cozy but cool, literally so - with super thoughtful ventilation flaps) and Hooded variety for those wanting to be snug as a bug in a rug!

3) Among the many choices in a Coleman sleeping bag, buyers are sure to be fascinated by the popular fabric choices of cotton, nylon or micro-fiber shell Coleman sleeping bags; the first is a natural fiber and thus breathable material as it spreads heat evenly, the second is hardy and lightweight for construction of long-lasting bags, while the third is strong and water-resistant too - more so than nylon!

Each fabric choice has its downsides too: nylon's not too great for winter-use; micro-fiber and cotton tend to be heavy and thus not the right choice when looking for lighter material to enable easy packing and carrying. Those with a natural down insulation are light-weight, warmer and more long-lasting but sleeping bags affording synthetic insulation are these and more: for they fare better even in clammy conditions.

4) Most sleeping bags are available in the regular 3 shapes i.e. Rectangle, Tapered and Mummy. Of these, the first is most common and tagged as suitable for all purposes while the tapered kind is called so as it begins with greater fabric on shoulders and tapers to a narrow fit at the foot-end; the last kind, as the name suggests, is a closer fit and intended for the seasoned camper looking to spend plentiful time communing with nature in cooler climes.

The Coleman web site is a great place to find these and more varieties in sleeping bags!
