We’ve put together a list of the best sleeping bags for your camping trips in 2022.

Types of the Best Sleeping Bag

There are many types of sleeping bag, all serving different purposes – but all designed to keep you warm.

Mummy Sleeping bags are one of the most popular and trusted types of sleeping bag – they are designed to maximise warmth, and their shape hugs the body, making them great for camping in harsh temperatures.
