It gets even more complicated when you're choosing a sleeping bag you'll have to carry with you on a backpacking trip, as the right balance is key to a comfortable night's sleep. You want a bag that'll keep you cozy, but won't take up too much room in your pack. This infographic from REI helps demystify the different types of insulation available in sleeping bags these days, hopefully making it easier for you to choose the right one.
REI has a wide selection of sleeping bags to choose from, and hopefully this infographic helps you pick your next bag! I'm a self-proclaimed sleeping bag hoarder with a 0-degree down bag, a 30-degree synthetic bag, a 40-degree synthetic bag, and a super lightweight summer bag. Do you have a collection, too, or just one you use for everything? Is there a sleeping bag out there that you're coveting? Leave a comment!
