Once you have found a tent for your camping in France, the next thing you have to buy is a sleeping bag. This is because tents don’t come with that and if you don’t invest in a good one, you will not be able to sleep very well at night.
There are 6 things you have to look for when are looking for a sleeping bag namely size, shape, warmth, fabric, weight and price.
If you are the one who is going to use the sleeping bag, naturally this should fit you. There should be room enough for you to lie on your back and also be comfortable if you move to your side.
The next thing you have to consider is the shape of the sleeping bag. These days, you can find them in mummy or tapered shape, one that is narrower at the bottom or the most common which is the shape of a rectangle.
Of the three shapes, the best is the mummy or tapered shape sleeping bag because it provides the most warmth and it is the least bulky when you are packing it with the rest of your gear.
Speaking of warmth, there is no standard set in the industry. This depends on the manufacturer but to give you an idea, if it is given a 3 star, the sleeping bag is good for you use only during the summer. If you go camping during the winter, it is best to buy a 4 star rating sleeping bag.
