A sleeping bag is a protective bag for a person to sleep in, essentially a blanket that can be closed with a zipper or similar means, and functions as a bed in situations where a bed is unavailable (e.g. when camping, hiking, hill walking or climbing). Here at Outdoor Shopping we offer the best lightweight, waterproof, warmest down, fleece, compact large and extra large sleeping bags and liners just to name a few. A basic sleeping bag is simply a square blanket, fitted with a zipper on two or three sides, allowing it to be folded in half and secured in this position. A sleeping bag of this type is packed by being folded in half or thirds, rolled up, and bound with straps or cords with cord locks. The second major type of sleeping bag, sometimes called a mummy bag because of its shape, is different in a number of important ways. It tapers from the head end to the foot end, reducing its volume and surface area, and improving its overall heat retention properties. Sleeping bags can accommodate different temperatures such as the upper limit is the highest temperature at which a 'standard' adult man is able to have a comfortable night's sleep without excess sweating. The comfort rating is based on a 'standard' adult woman having a comfortable night's sleep. The lower limit is based on the lowest temperature at which a 'standard' adult man is deemed to be able to have a comfortable night's sleep. The extreme rating is a survival only rating for a 'standard' adult man. This is an extreme survival rating only and it is not advisable to rely on this rating for general use. The transition zone, in between the comfort and lower temperature, is usually considered as the best purchase guideline.
