buying a sleeping bag in india

and you thought buying a sleeping bag is a child plays...

Do consider these when you buy one.

SIZE
Most sleeping bags are good for people with average builds and heights of 5 4" to 5 10" .For tall persons you need a longer length one, for an heavy person you need more space. Generally you get just 3 sizes , small, medium and large.


SHAPE
Avoid the rectangle ones which are big enough for 2 people, go for the mummy shaped ones which are narrow at the legs and head.

AIR CIRCULATION
Sleeping bags with side zips are better as they allow air
circulation, especially if someone sweats a lot, they can open the zip

TEMPERATURE
A sleeping bag made for 15 degrees is good, it will help you in cold temperatures and you can always open the zip to let in some air if its hot, better to be too warm and have to unzip the bag than too cold and shivering through the night.

COMFORT
If you are using a mat underneath, then a light weight and thin
sleeping bag is ok, if not using a mat then the material should be thick underneath

WEIGHT
Sleeping bag for regular usage should not be heavier then 3 kgs, especially for long treks, the one for high altitude or cold temperature can be heavy.

MATERIAL
Synthetic material is better as its light weight, and is a good
insulation in wet and monsoon weather and dries quicker when washed.

Choose a bag that can cover the face with a hood or one that can be cinched around the face

The inside material should absorb the sweat or it will feel damp
