Comfort temperature -temperature where a woman will sleep comfortably.
Temperature Limit -lower temperature where a man sleeps comfortably. Also known as transition temperature.
Extreme temperature – is the temperature where the technology employed in the sleeping bag can’t stop the cold outside and there is risk of damage to health or hypothermia.
NEVER buy a sleeping bag based on extreme temperature! Understand that that is a standard measure of SURVIVAL in case of emergencies. Watch brands that sell their products with very large variations, example: “Serves 10 C to -20° C”.
The video above is in newvilleoutdoor.com but explains a little about the temperature of a sleeping bag. Interesting what they say the temperature limit. “At this temperature you will live to see the sun rise”, IE is a temperature of much discomfort.
What means of transport? This will help in choosing between bags stuffed by feathers or synthetic, as if there’s no great volume and weight restriction, can be choose a lot cheaper.
The question about the wind indicates whether you must use a sleeping bag or a double-layer “Liner” that can be a bag type thinner inside the main sleeping bag. Some sleeping bags as simple and compact are normally used for this, but there are also “Liners” of “fabric Fleece” that are also used for trails.
The environment is very important because the sleeping bag must always be dry. The way was already wet, you’re going to spend a terrible night. In this case I would recommend that the sleeping bag is transported in a watertight bag type compression the Sea to Summit, which in addition to being water-resistant, has compression straps to reduce the volume. I have one of these with a capacity of 15 litres where take some clothes and a sleeping bag, too, so that they are always very dry.
As for the question about gender, male or female I hope everyone can answer off the top of my head. Studies show that women have less cold tolerance, mainly feel more cold feet. Consider buying a sleeping bag is right for you.
The clothes you wear to sleep are very important because they can make up for in a cold night or the use of a sleeping bag cheaper. You must add as many layers as necessary, but special fabrics help to retain heat and dry super fast. Cotton clothes are apparently well warm but wet takes too long to dry.
A hot drink before bed is very important on cold nights. With the heat generated by a good cup of hot chocolate, your body will be radiating more heat which will help to quickly warm up the sleeping bag when you enter it. Be well fed, well if you’re hungry, your metabolism will be reduced to save energy and thus produce less heat.
The last question is the most important. It does not help you find the best sleeping bag for you cost over $700.00 and that does not exist in Brazil if you can’t pay for it. I opted for the Marmot NanoWave as already mentioned in the post Ultra Light Equipment for backpackers. There are many options in Brazil of brands: Nautika, Quechua, trails and Paths, Deuter, North Face and many others. A quick spin through the Free Market can give you the reference values, even if you choose to buy in a store.
Now just goes cold who you want.
Good adventure for everyone and thanks for visiting.
Walgran and family.
