What to look for when buying sleeping bags online

The most important things to consider when choosing a sleeping bag suited for Australian conditions are:

  • What is the sleeping bag’s temperature rating?
  • Is the sleeping bag made of down or synthetics?
  • What shape is the sleeping bag?

Sleeping bags made of down are lighter, warmer and highly compressible, but offers little insulation when wet. Synthetic sleeping bags are bulkier, more affordable and provide greater insulation when wet, but are less warm.

A mummy shaped sleeping bag (which features a wide chest and taper down to a narrow foot end) are especially useful for cold conditions, as they come with a hood that can cover the head and shorter zips to reduce heat loss.

A rectangular sleeping bag (which are a traditional rectangular shape) are roomy and well-suited to campers who prefer a sleeping bag that can open completely into a quilt. Rectangular sleeping bags are well-suited to warmer climates and generally don’t fold up as small as mummy bags.
