Best Sleeping Bags for Mountaineering

In the past mountaineers ignored how many grams feather stuffing in sleeping bag has to assess how warm it will be.


They were aware that bags of less than 500g feather fillings are summer and winter looking for bags of 900g or more filling. Then taking into account the strength of the filling. For example, a bag of 500g stuffed with fluff-700 (footnote. BC. – “A 500g 700-fill bag”), provides “warm 500-gram bag.” But those were the days when users of sleeping bags are well informed and know exactly what they want.

Once mountaineering has become a market for the masses, manufacturers had to invent a way to show how warm sack them, people who slept only at room temperature.

In an attempt to make choosing and buying easier, introduced temperature ratings. With this simplification, however, not only was introduced “the producer interpretation temperatures” and also the people were pushed away from being well understood the mechanics of the operation of sleeping bags.

Since your individual metabolism and what actually heats the bag for you is extremely important to fully understand the functions of a fill weight, his strength, the inner width of the bag, etc. This simplification, in this case, may not be of any help for the user. Only if you understand how it works sleeping bag, you as a customer can make the right choice. To this day, manufacturers still made ​​in the specifications the weight of the filling, due to the immense usefulness of this information.

To evaluate the warmth of one bag only by its temperature rating is highly discouraged. Temperature ratings are nothing more than a rough guideline and should be used only as a starting point. In addition, the ratings differ greatly between manufacturers, and some manufacturers even temperature ratings are literally dangerous.

To give you an idea of ​​the use of different sleeping bags, Ezinesports has a sample classification based on the weight of the filling. The classification assumes that the sack benefit from well-fed pospalanko wearing thin thermal underwear and sleeping on better insulating mat.

* 200-300g filling (1+ season / +5 / 0 ° C). High quality down and construction will allow this bag can be used in soft spring or autumn conditions if it happens in a tent and pospalanko in good shape well dressed and well fed. It is common for ultra-light weight “marathon” bag.

* 350-550g filling (2+ seasons / 0 / -5 ° C). Such heard izaplnyava similar role as before, but has a slightly broader in not much more weight. Good weight of the bag for summer cold pospalnkovtsi. In well-dressed sleep with a good metabolism, this bag can be used in winter, but do not expect to you completely comfortable. Such bags are good as a light summer alpine or as lightweight trisezonni heard of trekking.

* 600-800g filling (3+ seasons -5 / -15 ° C). A good sleeping bag for general use, suitable for use in Four-tent. Well-dressed climber can use this bag comfortably even outdoors in the high mountains. Bags with such weight of the filler used by most climbers of the expedition.
