Best Sleeping Bags For Solo Camping

Don’t sleep on choosing new bedding for your next voyage to the Great Outdoors.

A quality sleeping bag is one of the most important items you can pack for a camping trip—and a solo camping trip, in particular, since the only body heat you'll have to keep you warm is your own. Trust us when we say that you do not want to get caught on a cold, windy night without a bag that keeps you comfy and insulated! Some things to consider is whether you'll be car camping or backpacking, and how much money you want to spend.

Sleeping bags made of down insulation tend to be more expensive than synthetic fill but pack easier and retain more heat. In any case, these options are a good start.
