What should you pay attention to when buying a down sleeping bag?

In order to find the right model, you should pay attention to the following factors when buying a down sleeping bag:

1. Fill weight

The filling weight is a parameter for the amount of down used and determines the insulation performance. If you want to use your down sleeping bag primarily in spring and summer, a low filling weight is sufficient.

For year-round use, however, it's best to choose a 4-season sleeping bag with appropriate filling.

2. Shape

The shape is also an important component when choosing the right down sleeping bag. A mummy sleeping bag is cut close to the body and therefore achieves rapid thermal performance. If you prefer more freedom of movement and want to change your lying position more often, the egg shape is better for you.

These models have a wider cut in the hip and leg areas, but offer the same Turbo warmth mode in the foot area.

3. Size and weight

Nothing is worse than a sleeping bag that is too small and doesn't give you any freedom of movement. So make sure you get the right size before buying.
