Nothing beats going out into the beautiful countryside and reconnecting with nature. With so many options available, from wild camping to glamping, you'll need to ensure you get packed with all the right gear. It can be overwhelming with endless possibilities and many awesome gadgets and equipment to choose from. With such unpredictable weather in the UK, staying warm and dry is the difference between a trip of a lifetime and a trip to forget. In this article, we'll talk about what to pack and how to pick the best sleeping bag.

What To Pack When Camping

Choosing what to pack with you when camping is crucial for a fun and stress-free camping adventure. What you end up packing largely depends on the type of camping you are looking to do and what the weather will bring into the mix. If you're planning on taking your car, you'll be able to pack in many more luxuries like a bigger tent, blow up beds and a bbq. However, if you're planning on doing a trek with camping over multiple days, the weight will be your biggest obstacle. 

Some things are essential regardless of whether you're going on a backpacking adventure into the wild or heading off to a luxury family glamping pod. Picking the correct tent for your trip is the first thing to consider, and if it's going to rain, you'll want a waterproof one. The next most essential item on your packing list is the sleeping bag. Having a cosy sleeping bag will make or break the camping experience and is often overlooked.

Choosing The Right Sleeping Bag For Camping

When picking the best sleeping bag for your needs, there are many factors to consider. What the weather is doing and the season you plan camping in, play the most significant role. Usually, when looking at sleeping bags online, you'll see them marked as four seasons. This often refers to how the sleeping bag will perform at keeping you snug in the different seasons of the year. One season is suitable for summer only, and four can keep up with the cold winter months.

We recommend you look out for a three-season sleeping bag that can quickly adapt to be warmer or cooler, depending on the situation you find yourself in. We've developed a 3-in-1 three season sleeping bag, which is perfect for every occasion, whether camping, caravaning. It's easily adaptable to be one big double or two smaller singles, so you and your partner can cosy up together. It's designed to feel like a duvet, giving you the best night's sleep, so you'll wake up fresher than ever, ready for the day's adventure.

When you go camping, especially for multiple days where showers are a luxury, things can get dirty and smelly really fast. Having an easily washable sleeping bag is vital. We've designed our Night Owl Sleeping Bag to be just that; just put it in the washing machine, and it will be ready for your next adventure in as little as two hours.
