Any sleeping bag will do if you are spending the night camping in the back yard. For other trips, you need the right bag for the climate and the location. Here are some tips for picking out the right sleeping bag for your camping needs.

Sleeping Bags: Choosing the Best One for You

Camping or backpacking can be a horrendous experience if you don’t have the correct sleeping bag with you. There is nothing worse than waking up shivering in the middle of the night because the sleeping bag you brought along wasn’t built for the cold temperatures you ended up experiencing. Before going to the nearest department store and purchasing an inexpensive generic sleeping bag, keep in mind that sleeping bags come with various features suited for different weather climates. For instance, a down sleeping bag is great for keeping warm during the colder months, but if it gets wet, it becomes useless. There are three types of sleeping bag styles that we’re going to look at: rectangle, barrel and mummy. These three types may be made out of different materials, which is just as important to consider as the actual style you are buying. Materials may include: synthetic, cotton and down-filled.
