Do you hike or camp with your kids? They need quality equipment also. Don’t skimp. Keep them safe and warm.

Here are some considerations for choosing a sleeping bag that will do just that.

1. Think about your child’s warmth and comfort while he or she is sleeping outdoors or in a tent.

2. Make sure you choose a high-quality bag that will perform in unpredictable outdoor weather.

3. Choose a bag, for quality and size, that will last several years until the child grows out of it.

4. If your kid will be carrying his or her bag in a backpack, consider carefully the weight. Sleeping bags typically make up a good deal of the weight carried on one’s back.

5. Consider a bag that has a draft collar and a hood to keep the little body warmer and prevent air from entering the bag.

6. Consider buying a bag that has a draft tube protecting the zipper from invading cold air.

7. Look for a sleeping bag that has no cords that your kid can get tangled up in while sleeping.

Camping and hiking with kids can be very rewarding. Providing good sleeping bags and other quality equipment is important to make the experience pleasurable and safe.
