  1. It’s amazing just how little time some people spend on finding the right sleeping bag!

    I think it should be one of the most important decisions you make when it comes to camping gear…you are going to spend 6-8 hours per night in it and count on it to keep you warm and comfortable.

  2. Good post. I have found that air mattresses make all the difference when trying to get a good night rest while camping. However make sure to blow them up before you take them out to ensure you have the right air pump.

    Happy Camping


  3. Camping and sleeping outdoors are fun experiences if you have planned and prepared well.Make sure you always bring the right camping gear to make your camping adventure enjoyable and unforgettable.

  4. Another important aspect of sleeping bags is the “diameter.” Some sleeping bags are really constrictive. I like to have more room to wiggle around. Definitely worth taking it out of the box and getting in the bag before you buy.
