Hi we want to replace our old sleeping bags. We have a budget of around £60/£70 each. Not mummy bags though!!.
Our old ones were Argos and to be fair did keep us warm for a good few years. Any advice is welcome, thank you Lorraine 😁
Then search for sleeping bags that give you some wiggle room on that. Maybe 5*C or so. You can always put more clothes on. Weed out bags based on comfort temperature only. Never consider limit or extreme temperatures. Develop a complete distrust of temperature ratings on all retailer websites, Amazon, eBay, etc.
For example, picking one at random, Amazon UK lists a Coleman Heaton Park as -12*C to +7*C comfort.
Decide whether you want a soft cotton interior or the standard polyester material. Left or right zip (usually left zip for right handers).
Pick the one with the colour that matches your tent/car/eyes/dog's hair*. Or the cheapest you trust. Zips on cheaper bags tend to be annoying but the rest is much of a muchness providing it has the required and genuine temperature rating.
Also remember that what you sleep on has a major impact on whether you are warm at night.
Hello, just to add something different, I can recommend a Motion Sac (a sleeping bag in the shape of a onesie). I found it really warm and comfortable too, because I can move my arms and legs as much as I want. When it wears out it will probably be replaced with another one. Here's a link (I hope 😀)
