Struggle to sleep when you’re camping? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Lots of people have trouble sleeping when they’re camping and, more often than not, it’s down to using the wrong sleeping bag. With so many to choose from, it’s easy to pick one that’s too warm or not warm enough. Thankfully, our Sleeping Bag Buying Guide is here to help.

Sleeping Bag Buying Guide: Insulated Filling

The warmth of a sleeping bag is determined by the amount of filling inside it which is measured in grams per square metre (GSM). Basically, the thicker the filling, the warmer the sleeping bag. Sleeping bags with a synthetic hollowfibre filling are ideal for warmer weather, whereas those designed for colder weather are usually stuffed with heavy downing.

Sleeping Bag Buying Guide: Season Rating

All our sleeping bags have a season rating which indicates how suitable they are for the time of year you’re camping. Although there are other factors that can affect your warmth and comfort, including the temperature inside your tent, a season rating is the best guide to follow.

1 Season (100gsm to 150gsm)
Sleeping bags with a one season rating are the lightest type available and are perfect for using when the weather is uncomfortably hot and sticky. Because the UK has a cooler climate, most people prefer to use a two season sleeping bag if they’re camping during the summer.

2 Season (150gsm to 250gsm)
Sleeping bags with a two season rating are slightly thicker than a one season sleeping bag and a great choice for summer camping in the UK. However, if the weather’s warm enough, you can use a two season sleeping bag during the late spring and early autumn.

3 Season (250gsm to 350gsm)
Sleeping bags with a three season rating are perfect for using during the spring and autumn months, as well as cooler nights throughout the summer. Also, if the winter months are mild enough, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to use a three season sleeping bag.

4 Season (350gsm to 450gsm)
If the temperature inside your tent is bitingly cold, opt for a four season sleeping bag. They’re thicker and heavier than other types of sleeping bag for optimum warmth and comfort. Despite being great for frosty conditions, they’re best avoided beyond the winter.

Sleeping Bag Buying Guide: Comfort Rating

All of our sleeping bags have a comfort rating to give you a clearer idea of how warm they are to sleep in. When the temperature inside a sleeping bag is within the Comfort Range, it provides optimum warmth and comfort. However, if the temperature inside a sleeping bag drops below the Extreme Temperature Range, it will be too cold to sleep in. Likewise, when the temperature climbs above the Comfort Limit Range, a sleeping bag is likely to be too hot to sleep in. Under no circumstances should you use a sleeping bag if the temperature drops below the Extreme Temperature Range. Doing so could lead to hypothermia or frostbite.

Sleeping Bag Liners

Sleeping bag liners are made from thin polycotton fabric and are much lighter than normal sleeping bags. By fitting one inside a sleeping bag, you can give yourself an extra layer of warmth and comfort when camping in colder conditions. Conversely, you can use a sleeping bag liner without a sleeping bag if conditions inside your tent are ridiculously hot and humid. As well as an envelope sleeping bag liner, we also sell a liner to fit our mummy sleeping bag.
