WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN COMPARING SLEEPING BAGS

The main thing to consider when comparing sleeping bags is when you'll be camping. To guide you, sleeping bags are rated in terms of seasons:

  • 1 season - Basic bags that are designed for use in the summer
  • 2 seasons - For mild/warm weather in the spring and summer
  • 2/3 seasons - For use in the spring, summer & autumn, when you might experience lower temperatures.

Also, take into account where you'll be camping. For instance, a sheltered campsite near the coast will be warmer than an exposed site up in the hills, where you'll probably need a bit of extra protection.
