If youâ€™re travelling with your partner or enjoy going on camping trips together then a double sleeping bag is a great travel item to take a little bit of luxury with you. Why sleep in separate sleeping bags when you share the same bed together at home? Double sleeping bags are also a lot cozier as you share body heat so they are great for camping and sleeping in cold conditions.
There are many different types of double wide sleeping bag available and the type you choose depends on where you will be using it and how you will be carrying it. If you are travelling by car and weight and space isnâ€™t an issue then you can choose your double sleeping bag based on comfort alone. However if youâ€™re backpacking and carrying everything with you, you will want a really lightweight double sleeping bag that packs down small.
The Coleman double sleeping bag is a popular choice for many couples and comes in a range of styles. Many of these sleeping bags have a flannel lining for extra comfort which is really cozy when you are camping or staying in a drafty cabin or caravan. The padding of the sleeping bag is made from hollow fiber which is a great insulator as well as being lightweight. They are great for camping, music festivals or just keeping in the home for extra house guests. However these double sleeping bags are a little on the heavy side so they are probably not so suitable for backpackers.
As well as your sleeping bag you will probably want to buy a double sleeping bag liner. This will give your sleeping bag an extra layer, usually adding a few degrees of warmth to the temperature rating. They also protect the inside of the sleeping bag meaning you do not need to wash it as regularly â€“ you can just pop the liner in the washing machine whenever it needs to be cleaned. You can buy these sleep sheets in many different materials but a silk sleeping bag liner is a great choice as it works great in both hot and cold conditions, is light and packs down small and feels great against the skin.
When choosing the sleeping bag that is right for you, make sure to read lots of double sleeping bag reviews so you can see what other people thought of different models and the advantages and disadvantages. This way you know if you are getting value for money. Keep in mind what you need the sleeping bag for as you read the reviews â€“ a person using a sleeping bag as spare bedding in the house will probably not have the same view as someone taking it backpacking with them.
The best double sleeping bag will keep you warm but not too hot, be easy to clean, easy to carry and pack down small. Donâ€™t expect that a good quality bag will be cheap but if you use it a lot the cost will be well worth your investment. For more flexibility and value for money you might want to consider single sleeping bags that zip together in order to form one double sleeping bag.
