Before Choosing a
If you are one of those who spent some good part of their
day hiking and camping, then you are wellversed with the
advantages that come along with a topnotch sleeping.
Here, we are talking about the lightweight sleeping bags.
It does not matter whether you are a rookie or a camping
pro. All you need to know is that you need a sleeping bag

Here, you have to remember that it is your body that creates the
warmth but not the sleeping bag you have carried along with.
However, what they do is that they help to maintain the
warmth created and therefore, you must be very selective in
your choices to make sure you do not end with something that
will only embarrass you in the cold nights. Look for sleeping
bags with more insulation. For instance, they should be thick
enough and well designed, leaving no space for the escape of

consideration despite the fact that it
is quite important. All sleeping bags
have temperature ratings which you
have to look at before making the
final decision. Most of those that are
on the market are between a
temperature range of 15F to 35F.
Therefore first, you must be certain
about the climate of the area you are
hiking at so that you select the best
style and appropriate temperature
