Best sleeping bag 2019: Get a good night’s sleep wherever you are with these sleeping bags
Holly Pyne

Having the best sleeping bag is important whether you’re out in the wilderness of your back garden, or somewhere a little more treacherous. That doesn’t mean a good sleeping bag is easy to find - especially if you’re shopping within a budget.

The ideal sleeping bag will all depend on what sort of climate you’re sleeping in. If you’re sleeping in a campsite in Cornwall, you’re probably not going to need the same thickness as someone hiking up Everest.
If you’re trekking, you’ll also want to consider how heavy a sleeping bag is. A lightweight option is probably going to be a lot more beneficial if you’re spending day after day lugging it around. On the other hand, if you’re simply driving to a campsite, you don’t have to worry as much and can afford to get a heavier sleeping bag.
Below you’ll find an array of options, ranging from premium to the more reasonably priced - along with a variety of shapes, materials and sizes thrown in for good measure.
As always, upvote the ones you like the look of and be sure to comment below to have your say.

1. Salewa Eco

£137.99
View now at Amazon

If you’re worried about the environmental impact of your sleeping bag, the Salewa Eco may be a good option. Made using recycled down from old sleeping bags, which is then silverised to make it odour-resistant (an added bonus when you’re out in the wilderness without a shower for any period of time).

It can also be opened up fully to create a blanket if you don’t like the restricted feeling some sleeping bags cause. The Salewa Eco is ideal for those going hiking, trekking or mountaineering.
