Sleeping Bags for Fishing

Dimensions and shape

Why are bag sizes so important?A sack too large will make a much larger interior air layer and it will cost us more work to heat it.At the same time, a bag too narrow will not allow us to move freely (hurting our rest), nor that we can store objects inside (such as personal items or drums of water on very cold nights).Therefore, the best solution is a custom bag, but this will make the final price more expensive.

We can find two types of sleeping bags according to their shape:

  • Rectangular : They are very spacious and comfortable if we use them to sleep in very warm areas, since we can open them completely and use them as a blanket.But nothing recommended on very cold nights.
  • Mummy : As far as insulation and other properties are concerned, this is the most effective way, since it will weigh and occupy less.Its shape fits the body: kneeling down is narrower, in order to have less volume of air to heat and without being too tight so that the feet do not overcompress the insulation layers and lose heat.
Zippers

The zippers should be resistant to stress, dirt, wear and cold.They should be able to open the sack in both directions (neck or feet) to be able to fan it, as well as from both sides (from outside or from inside).

It is the weakest point in the construction of the bag, since it is an important point of heat loss, so that the bags of greater performance bring a kind of collar or thermal band along the whole zipper, even with the Same filling material as the rest of the bag, to avoid such losses.

Hood

The hood can vary from a summer sack to a winter sack.For a summer sack hoods are usually wider and open, while for a winter sack it is better to have a tighter hood that does not allow air to enter, ie heat loss by convection.On colder nights, we would appreciate that the hood has its own filling, as well as elastic bands that allow a better fit to our head.

Collar

The collar is placed at the level of the neck in the sleeping bag, just below the hood, and its function is to prevent air from entering the sac and lose heat by convection, especially when go outdoor activities such as fishing. Usually comes with some kind of cord inside to adjust it once we find ourselves in the sack.
