They won’t be 9 & 12 forever so get them a decent adult bag. Snugpak, Vango and Decathlon are usually very good value for money. Sadly with sleeping bags really cheap usually means really crap.Posted 4 years ago
Have a look for sales at online outdoor shops. Bags from Marmot and Mountain Hardware sometimes comes up in the sales. Mountain equipment are also very good quality and not too expensive.petrieboyMember
I’m not a camping expert by any means, strictly fair weather for us, but when it is cold I find keeping them in their normal pyjamas and letting the bag do the insulating works a lot better than wrapping them up inside the bag. A blanket over the top of the sleeping bags keeps them toasty (I have a few of the mesh type ones they use in ambulances)Posted 4 years agoElShalimoMember
If they wiggle around the liner moves with you
Top tip: a hot meal shortly before bed time helps an awful lot.
Synthetic and down insulation work the same way in that you heat it then it keeps you warm, so if your body is busy digesting food it’s generating warmth.
Another thing to remember is that your sleeping mat can be critical. You’ll lose downwards too. A decent mat will stop you losing heat to the ground. Opinions vary on the best way to do this but again good mats are not cheap but worth it if you get a good night’s sleepPosted 4 years agoworldrallyteamMember
Another one here for Vango Nitestars . I have the standard 350 and my wife and daughter have the 350 short.My daughter has had one for the past 6 years, since she was 7 and still fits with plenty of room to spare. Bag is still very warm as we found out last weekend when it was down at 3 deg during the night. We use a fleece liner as it helps protect the bag and gives a little extra insulation.Posted 4 years ago
