Choosing Sleeping Bags
Luckily, you do not have to spend a fortune on a sleeping bag. While price tags tend to reflect the quality of materials and build, it is the more luxurious or technical bags that tend to have the wallet-emptying characteristics. A good sleeping bag does not have to break the bank.
Sleeping bag designs tend to be limited to a mummy-shape, like our Nebula range that tapers to the foot to reduce the internal space that needs to be heated by the body to stay warm, and versatile envelope-styles like our Moon range that provide space to move at night yet may feel colder due to the amount of body heat needed to create a snug haven. Hybrid shapes and slimmer envelope styles bring the benefits of both shapes together while minimising any negative points.
Do not skimp on your bedding for there is nothing worse than waking up feeling chilly. Good bags will provide ample ventilation to cope with overheating on hot, balmy nights. A sleeping bag liner, like our Travel Sheets, used to help keep the inside of your sleeping bag clean and add extra insulation, can be used on its own if things get too hot. So, just concentrate on keeping warm.
