One Consideration in Selecting a Light Weight Sleeping Bag

A lesson I have learned from some mountaineers is to select a child’s sleeping bag for light weight travel.

This may see odd but here is the reason for it. A child’s bag is lighter to carry, has less bulk and really only needs to cover your feet, knees and thighs. The mountaineers hood and big jacket will cover the rest of the body.

In a bug our situation or in a situation where weight is a big concern, this is a good match.

In other areas a back pack can be used in much the same manner to keep the lower extremities warm and dry.
