Your sleeping bag can be one of the most important pieces of camping equipment that you invest in so making sure you get the right one should be a priority. You’re out to have fun and relax. Getting a good night’s sleep is part of that and a good sleeping bag will make your nights as pleasant as your days of fun in the sun.
If you shop around you can find good quality sleeping bags that will last for years to come. They take a lot of abuse, actually, as they are slept in, sat upon, draped over chairs, drug around in the dirt, and stuffed into small spaces between other camping gear. Read as many reviews as you can to make sure your choice is a durable one that can hold up to all your camping family can dish out.
You’ll be camping in all kinds of weather over the years and so will your sleeping bags. You’ll want one that keeps you warm without crushing you from it’s weight. Making sure it is water repellent will benefit you many times over as you wake to find yourself dry because your sleeping bag resisted soaking up any rain that might come trailing into your tent.
There is nothing worse than a sleeping bag that crinkles loudly each time you roll over, or bunches up in spots. It shouldn’t be itchy, and it should be able to wick moisture out and away from your body. Make sure it is long enough and wide enough to move about in easily.
Both tenters and RVers find multiple uses for a good sleeping bag so make sure you choose one that you can depend on. Then, check the weather of where you are headed and get out and go camping.
