Buying a wholesale sleeping bag is suitable for clubs, scout groups and anybody wanting to buy bulk lots of sleeping bags. Just be careful with the type and quality of bag you a buying as usually you'll be buying from an online store and it's very difficult to return the product if you have a problem.
If you choose a sleeping bag that isn't comfortable, doesn't have the features you want, or isn't warm enough, you may toss and turn all night and be completely useless and unable to enjoy yourself the next day. What a way to ruin a great camping trip!
So what should you be looking for when perusing camping sleeping bags for sale? First, the most important quality of any wholesale sleeping bag is its warmth rating. Not only is sleeping too cold uncomfortable, but it can also be downright dangerous in colder temperatures. Fortunately, most sleeping bags, even cheap sleeping bags, come with a with a temperature rating. However, picking the right temperature for your sleeping bag is not as simple as it might seem.
The important thing to remember when choosing the correct temperature for your wholesale sleeping bag is to err on the side of caution. What is the coldest temperature you will likely be out in? Take that number and subtract ten or fifteen degrees, just in case. Also keep in mind that there are additional features your sleeping bag will need to have to ensure warmth.
These features include things called a “draft tube” and “draft collar”. These are features that protect your body from cold air better than a traditional wholesale sleeping bag. Another important feature for warmth is a close fit. The more tightly a sleeping bag fits around your body, the better it will keep warm air around your body. You will also want to choose a sleeping pad or mat to place underneath your sleeping bag – an insulated mat will also help keep you warmer.
Along with the fit of the bag, you should also carefully evaluate the type of bag to choose. “Mummy” bags tend to fit closer to the body and hence are warmer. They also compress to a very small size compared to the degree of warmth they provide, so they are great choices for backpackers or anyone who likes to camp light. Rectangular type bags are more expensive and can be quite comfortable, but they do not tend to be quite as warm.
You can also pick a synthetic sack filling if you are allergic to goose down. Synthetic fillings are inexpensive, and can be quite warm, although they do not tend to be as warm and come in as high-quality sleeping bags as down. Try to avoid fillings that are not down or synthetic down, as these fillings are not very warm.
Finally, when deciding on a warmth rating for your wholesale sleeping bag, make sure to keep in mind that everyone has their own favorite temperature range. If you tend to “sleep cold” or “sleep warm”, you will want to adjust the warmth rating of your bag accordingly. If you will be eating lightly and doing a lot of physical activity while camping, it is also a great idea to choose a warmer sleeping bag, as these conditions can make it harder to warm up during the night.
Remember, choosing the right sleeping bag depends on a number of factors, but you should always be cautious when selecting a sleeping temperature, so that you don't suffer from excessive cold.
If you choose
the right wholesale sleeping bag, you will be ensuring that you have an
enjoyable camping trip and are able to sleep in comfort.
