No category found

There are many different types of sleeping bags, each designed for specific purposes and conditions. Here are five common types of sleeping bags:

  1. Backpacking sleeping bags: These are lightweight and compact sleeping bags designed for use on backpacking trips. They are usually made of synthetic or down insulation and have a streamlined design to reduce weight and bulk.

  2. Mummy sleeping bags: These are tapered sleeping bags that are snug around the head and feet, with a narrow shape that reduces heat loss. They are designed to be lightweight and warm, and are a popular choice for backpacking and mountaineering.

  3. Rectangular sleeping bags: These are the traditional shape of sleeping bags, with a rectangular shape and a straight cut. They are versatile and spacious, making them a good choice for car camping or family camping.

  4. Double sleeping bags: These are large sleeping bags designed for two people. They are often rectangular in shape, with two separate compartments that can be zipped together to create a shared sleeping area.

  5. Kid’s sleeping bags: These are smaller sleeping bags designed for children. They are often colourful and decorated with characters, and may have features such as built-in pillows or pockets.
