Choosing your sleeping bag

It is essential to choose the right sleeping bag when venturing out on an expedition, whether it is for one or more days. There are several parameters to consider when making this choice:

  • Comfort temperature: it is important to distinguish between the comfort temperature and the minimum temperature that the product can withstand. The closer you are to the comfort temperature, the more relaxed you will be.

  • Weight: Weight is an important criterion in the choice of bag as you will be carrying it throughout your activity. Generally, the heavier the bag, the more protection it will provide against low temperatures.
  • Filling: the filling can be either synthetic or down, It all depends on what you like and on what you can handle most.
  • The zip system: this may be considered a detail, but the zip system should be taken into account in your choice. An effective zip keeps the heat in and prevents cold air from seeping in. Some can also be combined with other sleeping bags.

In short

As you have seen, your choice of sleeping bag will depend mainly on how you will use it and the climate you will face. The materials are different from one product to another and the characteristics are not the same, so it is essential to be well informed before your purchase. Here, we offer 15 sleeping bags that are suitable for the following activities: trekking, bikepacking and hiking. The main parameters taken into account are weight, temperature and the ability to be hybrid in use.
