Square Sleeping Bags

Square sleeping bags are all the rage at the moment, as many people start to appreciate the room that they provide. Generally, they are more spacious than the traditional style 'mummy' sleeping bag and because of this are ideal for people who tend to move a lot in their sleep or like to have as much space as possible!

Who would choose a square sleeping bag?

Whilst mummy sleeping bags are great, they can be quite restrictive when you sleep and we appreciate they aren't for everyone. For people who can get a little claustrophobic, the square sleeping bag seems to be the better option as it provides more room to move around and consequently doesn't leave you feeling as hemmed in. Because the square sleeping bag isn't as tight to the body and provides more manoeuvrable space – we think you’ll find yourself feeling a lot more comfortable in these products. They certainly come recommended from us!

What else can I use this bag for?

Planet Camping has a variety of square sleeping bags for you to consider in this section too. Whether you’re in need of extra-wide options for more sleeping space than you could possibly dream of, a warmer option for those chiller expeditions or just a lightweight option as a spare bed around the house – we’ve covered all of your needs. We even have cotton sleeping bags for those who just want a cosy indoor option!

Do square sleeping bags have good insulation?

Despite square sleeping bags having a reputation as not being as warm as the original style offerings, many brands are closing the gap and offer square sleeping bags with excellent insulation qualities. We know that these products can now give the traditional sleeping bag model and shape a good run for its money and that’s great news for you – with insulation technology and more innovative design than ever, you can now just go for the shape that really suits you. Happy sleeping bag shopping!
