How Does a Backpack Sleeping Bag Work?
- After a grueling day on the trail, weary backpackers enjoy drifting off to sleep in a comfortable sleeping bag. But it's no fun to wake up in the middle of the night shivering in a sleeping bag that is too cold.
- Backpack sleeping bags are designed so that their insulating
- fill-material captures and stores a hiker's body heat. A sleeping bag's effectiveness depends largely on its amount of insulation and the outside temperature.
- There is an array of compact, lightweight sleeping bags filled with down or synthetic fibers that will squeeze into or strap onto a hiker's backpack for overnight sojourns into nature. But choosing the right backpack sleeping bag can be a challenge.
- Most backpack sleeping bags have outer shells consisting of rain- and wind-resistant stitched nylon or polyester.
- But it's the inside material which matters most. A sleeping bag's fill material is the critical factor pertaining to the warmth it gives hikers on a chilly night and the weight it will add to their backpacks during the day. Down-filled sleeping bags deliver the most warmth with the least weight and therefore tend to be the most expensive. For instance, down-filled sleeping bags rated for 0 F will often weigh less than four pounds with a cost of $400 or more. Backpack sleeping bags filled with polyester fibers tend to be more affordable - in the range of $200 or less for many - but they are usually considerably heavier than their down counterparts.
- When choosing which backpack sleeping bag to buy, experts suggest that hikers choose a model with a warmth rating 10 degrees below the lowest temperature expected during their camping trip.
Shapes, Sizes and Features:
- Mummy-shaped backpack sleeping bags, which are wider at the shoulders and tapered at the feet, tend to be both warm and light. Rectangular sleeping bags are roomier but less efficient because body heat can escape from the top opening.
- Size also matters. A sleeping bag should be just a few inches longer than its owner's height.
- Some sleeping bags have hoods that draw shut around a backpacker's head in cold conditions. Others feature zippers that allow two sleeping bags to be joined together.
Added Comfort and Warmth:
- Sleeping pads are a recommended accessory for backpackers. Besides adding comfort, they form a barrier between the cold ground and a hiker's toasty sleeping bag.
How to Use Sleeping Bag When Hiking?
- A sleeping bag can provide protection and comfort on your next hiking expedition. Your bag can keep you dry in inclement weather and toasty even in the most frigid temperatures. Here are a few tips for using your sleeping bag.
- Choose a quality bag. The "mummy" style does a good job of keeping hikers warm. You can choose a special women's fit, synthetic or down fill and various accessory options. When purchasing a bag, think about the coldest temperature you can see yourself hiking in and drop it down another 10-20 degrees.
- Line it. A liner is necessary for maximum heat retention if you're going to be hiking during colder months. Otherwise, heat can escape through various routes while you're sleeping, including through the zipper or the bag stitching.
- Use your hood. Since most heat loss happens through your head, a hood is absolutely essential. It works by trapping air around your head and insulating you for added warmth. If your bag doesn't come with a hood, purchase one separately from an outdoor specialty shop.
- Stuff your pillow pocket. After a long day of hiking, there's nothing you want more than to lay your head on a nice soft pillow. Some bags come with them in either stuffed or inflatable versions, while other pocket fillings can be purchased separately.
- Plan ahead. Most bags are so versatile that you can use them in any type of weather. You can choose to unzip your vents during warmer months or keep them zipped all the way with a hoodie and liner. Just don't forget to pack the accessories you need. If sleeping on the ground proves hard on you, consider purchasing a pad to make yourself more comfortable. These are extremely lightweight and easy to pack.
How to Choose a Sleeping Bag?
- Whether you're an avid camper or the occasional traveler, it's likely that at some point you've used a sleeping bag. You may believe that one sleeping bag is the same as any other, but that is far from the truth. When you choose a sleeping bag, there are several factors that you must take into consideration in order to find the right fit.
- Match the shape of the sleeping bag to your sleeping habits and intended use. There are two basic shapes of sleeping bags: mummy and rectangular. While the mummy-shaped sleeping bag is warmer than the rectangular, the rectangular-shaped sleeping bag offers more room to move around.
- Consider the sleeping bag's filling. Sleeping bags are available in either the down-filled variety or synthetic-filled. You need to think about the climate when making this choice; a down-filled sleeping bag is warmer, but a synthetic-filled sleeping bag resists moisture better. Of course, if allergies are a problem for you, you should probably choose a synthetic-filled sleeping bag.
- Weight matters. Down-filled sleeping bags are much lighter than their synthetic-filled counterparts. So when you're choosing your sleeping bag, buy the one that better fits your uses. If you'll be carrying it while hiking, choose the down-filled bag, but if you're buying one to take on less-rugged outings, you might want to go with the synthetic-filled bag instead.
- Review your budget. As with all purchases, price plays an important factor in what you actually buy. Unsurprisingly, the down-filled sleeping bags are more expensive than the synthetic-filled sleeping bags.
- Check the comfort ratings on the sleeping bags. Before you buy, match the comfort ratings on your choices and find one that coincides with the lowest temperature in which you'll use it. Keep in mind that the manufacturers come up with the ratings assuming that you'll be using a sleeping pad underneath your bag.
How to Store Down-Filled Sleeping Bags?
- A sleeping bag can be a pricey investment, so it is essential to take care of it so it lasts for as long as possible. Although it may be tempting to fold up your bag and stuff it back into its sack, this can affect the springy nature of the down in the long term. Create space under your bed or in your closet to give the sleeping bag the freedom it needs to maintain its shape.
- Keep your sleeping bag dry as much as possible when you are on your trip. Down loses its insulating properties when it gets wet. Use a waterproof sack to store it in while you are traveling, and place a groundsheet below when you are using it.
- Shake the sleeping bag to fluff up its down as soon as you arrive home. Dry the bag thoroughly, by air drying, for at least 24 hours before storing.
- Put lavender oil on a cotton ball and place it inside the sleeping bag before putting it away. This will help with the scent factor when the bag is in storage.
- Put the bag in a breathable storage bag, which is often provided by the manufacturer. Alternatively, you can put it on a hanger, unroll it underneath your bed, or place it in a quilt cover on a spare bed. Even putting it into a king size pillowcase is better than leaving the bag crammed into a compression sack.
- Place the bag in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
