The right sleeping bag is essential for every outdoor trip. You want a comfortable, good night’s sleep after a long day’s hiking, camping or bike packing outdoors, a sleeping bag that you can huddle up in without being too hot, or not warm enough, and something that you won’t regret carrying around when you’re hiking or cycle touring because it’s too heavy. 

How to choose a suitable sleeping bag for you:

What is the temperature or climate where you’re spending the night?
Are you spending your night & sleeping in a cold climate, in the winter, or summer? Depending on the season, terrain and geographical demographics you are hiking in, you need a lightweight sleeping bag for summer, and a really warm & good quality winter sleeping bag for cold nights & the winter season. The good news is, we have the amazing Ultralight Duck Down Mummy Compact Sleeping Bag that insulates your body temperature very well & keeps you warm for temperatures as low as -14°C, yet super lightweight at the same time. It is best used in the snow, up in the mountains & in the winter. This winter sleeping bag definitely is not a good idea to use in warm destinations - too hot and you’ll be sweating your way & miss a good night’s sleep. 

We also offer other great winter sleeping bags that can stand temperatures as low as 5 Celcius. Besides being ultralight, they are really highly compressible & compact sleeping bags so they are very packable down to a compact size.

On the other hand, Novaprosports stocks ultralight summer sleeping bags that are also great compact sleeping bags - they can be packed down small so you can fit into your hiking backpack with ease. Great as hiking sleeping bags or camping sleeping bags. 

Are you adventuring solo or with a partner, or with your family?
If you’re hiking or biketouring solo, it doesn’t make sense to lug around the unnecessary weight of a 3 person family or couples sleeping bag. Keep your weight to a minimum, & pack compact to save valuable space. On the other hand, if you’re travelling with a partner or with one or two kids, you have the option to carry multiple one-person sleeping bags, or save space & weight with just one couples sleeping bag that can fit your partner or your kids - everybody cozy up for a good night’s sleep!

What sort of ground are you laying your sleeping bag on?
Are you sleeping on an airbed, or on the ground where sticks and stones might be protruding? If you’re sleeping on an airbed, your sleeping bag can afford to be not too thick, whereas if you’re sleeping on the ground with just a sleeping mat between your sleeping bag and the ground, you would need a more cushiony, thicker sleeping bag to be comfortable.

Are you going camping, hiking or cycletouring?
With this consideration, that means weight becomes a crucial factor. If you’re going to be on the move while carrying your sleeping bag and other hiking essentials, it’s important to carry an ultralight sleeping bag that is also compressible to help you save space & pack easily. On the other hand, if you’re going camping onsite while carrying your camping gear in your vehicle, then your camping goods, including your sleeping bag, does not have to be very lightweight in exchange for comfort. In short, if you’re going camping while carrying your outdoor camping goods in your vehicle, you are allowed more flexibility in terms of the weight for your sleeping bag.
