THE RIGHT SLEEPING BAG = A COMFORTABLE NIGHT'S SLEEP

You are planning an expedition and need a sleeping bag? Remember, choosing the right sleeping bag is crucial for comfortable and safe sleep during outdoor activities such as camping, climbing or trekking. Several basic factors influence the selection of the right sleeping bag: weather conditions and temperature of the expedition site, thermal category, type of insulation, size and length.

Will you be camping on summer nights or planning a winter trip to the mountains? Weather conditions in which you will use the sleeping bag are crucial. Determining your expected temperatures will help you choose a sleeping bag with the right thermal category. Choosing the right thermal category pay attention to the comfort temperature if you expect to sleep comfortably under typical conditions. Please note that the temperature ranges of most sleeping bags from reputable brands are measured according to the standard EN 13537 (age/height/weight) - this applies to both comfort and extreme temperatures. Always take into account the fact that everyone has a different perception of cold and heat. Much depends on the physical load, personal feelings of cold, and whether the person was previously physically active (sports, etc.).). Severe fatigue can also play a role in some cases. The temperature ranges of sleeping bags of reputable brands are measured according to the standard European technical standard EN13537 in independent institutes. The standard is designed to provide uniform and reliable information on the thermal properties of sleeping bags to help consumers make the right choice of product for their needs and weather conditions. EN 13537 standard contributes to the safety and comfort of customers during outdoor activities. This is an important tool for manufacturers and consumers, providing confidence in the quality and performance of sleeping bags. The four categories of the EN 13537 standard indicate the temperature range in which the sleeping bag is intended for use. Categories include comfort temperature (the minimum temperature at which the sleeping bag provides a comfortable night's sleep for the average user), limit temperature (the sleeping bag provides survival in extreme conditions), extreme temperature (the sleeping bag is able to protect the user from hypothermia) and top temperature (the maximum temperature at which the sleeping bag is still comfortable). The test methods define the exact test procedures, which include laboratory conditions and accepted measures for evaluating the thermal performance of sleeping bags. Each EN 13537-compliant sleeping bag is properly labeled, informing consumers about its temperature categories and other relevant parameters, such as filling material, weight and size. Choosing the right sleeping bag depends on your individual needs, conditions and preferences. Before buying, think carefully about where and under what conditions you will use it to ensure a comfortable night's sleep outdoors. Sometimes it is worth considering additional thermal clothing, such as a hat, thermal underwear or socks, to further enhance thermal comfort.

When buying a sleeping bag, it is also worth paying attention to type of insulation. There are two main types of insulation in sleeping bags: down and synthetic fiber. Down is lightweight and very thermally efficient, but more expensive. Synthetic insulation is cheaper and more resistant to moisture, but can be heavier. Choose the type of insulation that best suits your needs. In addition, pay attention to size and length sleeping bag. Be sure to choose one that fits your height. It is mandatory if you are a tall person to try on the sleeping bag, which will allow you to see if it is properly comfortable and fits your needs. Check if the sleeping bag has a large enough interior space for you to move freely. Some sleeping bags have additional features, such as a covered zipper, hood, interior pockets or systems for connecting to another person's sleeping bag. Consider additional features that are relevant to you and fit your needs. Also, think about the weight and packability of the sleeping bag if you plan on doing long hikes or expeditions. Lightweight and compact sleeping bag easier to take with you on the go.

Have a successful trip!
