Sleeping bag advice please.
My daughter is going to stay in an old castle for a week with school in mid November.
They have to take a sleeping bag. I’m thinking a 3 season one would be about right.
Any advice or suggestions please. I have looked at Field and Trek and they seem to have some good deals on.Posted 4 years agoadjustablewenchMember
Id consider how small it needs to pack down to, how likely it is to get damp, how tall your daughter is etc
And how often will she use it.
There are junior bags that will do the job, but if shes over 10 id look for an adult or small adult bag (they do short bags in decathlon).
And there a lots of cheap bulky 3 season bags that will do the job, if she doesnt have to carry it far.Posted 4 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber

If you have to buy, it is one of those things that
you can use for bikepackingshe can use occasionally for a good few years to come.
Big brand, hollow fibre, you wont go much wrong. Buy a full size – then she can use for DofE etc as she gets older. MountainEquipment starlight are great for warmth and pack size, if tad heavy. Vango are great value and OK perfomance.
Tesco had some silly cheap down ones in a couple of winters ago having said that…OllyMember
Go full size for sure. Go synthetic for sure (if there was any doubt) and i would aim for a 3 season. after that you get what you pay for i figure! if she is likely to do DofE and all that jazz, get the best you are prepared to fork out for! Muntin Equipment ones are jolly good, mine has an elasticated inner, which holds the internal lining against you, helping the insulation to loft.Posted 4 years ago
