Sleeping bags and blankets for overnighting, being in the outdoors and camping.
Down or synthetics in the sleeping bag
The first thing you need to consider is what type of fill (insulation) you want, such as down or synthetics. It depends entirely on your needs. The superior warmth and low weight from down? Or affordable synthetics that continue to perform in wet conditions?
What type of sleeping bag suits your needs?
If you only intend to use your sleeping bag when you sleep over at someone’s house, then it is enough to invest in a slumber bag. If you plan to sleep outdoors a lot, buy a proper sleeping bag. If you want to be able to sleep outside even when it’s a bit cold, you can use a liner in your sleeping bag.
Frequently asked questions about sleeping bags
