I really don’t want you to be misled into thinking the same novelty bag you bought your little tyke for sleep overs will work just fine. Those novelty bags aren’t insulated sufficiently for outdoor use. So you might ask, “Why don’t I just buy an adult bag? The kids are just going to grow into it anyways, right?” Wrong! It just won’t work that way.
Let me explain why children need their very own kid sized bags. The same principles that apply to your adult body warming up a bag, apply to a kid warming up an adult size sack. The sack is warmed up with body heat. A snugger fitting bag will eliminate extra dead air space, keeping the little ones more cozy.
You’ll be able to find the perfect fit as the sizes of children’s bags will vary up to 5 feet 5 inches in length. So you can be sure to buy the right children’s sleeping bags for camping with your child. Your kids will be thrilled to have their very own bag just like mom and dad’s. A mini mine!
It used to be most children’s sleeping bags for camping didn’t have much style or flare. I remember those big bulky and smelly rectangular bags my dad had for us kids. Today that has all been changed. Kid’s camping bags nowadays feature a wide variety of styles and colors.
You will find children’s sleeping bags for camping in mummy, semi-mummy and rectangular just like adult bags. As well as the same temperature ratings and fills as adult sized bags.
There are many options for children’s sleeping bags for camping. Some bags come with pillows attached. Others will have an external pocket for keeping their favorite toy and headlamps handy. Shop around and you are sure to find exactly what your child needs.
I recall sleeping out under the stars during a meteor shower as one of the most exciting things besides making and eating s’mores, or going on a snipe hunt on a camping trip when I was growing up. Heck, I still enjoy a meteor shower and taking a newbie out for a good ol’ snipe hunt. Maybe I’m one of those that won’t grow up!
My point is you can find children’s sleeping bags for camping that will keep them toasty, warm and as snug as a bug all night long. A good youth bag is money well spent in getting your kids to explore the great outdoors with you enjoying nature as it was intended to be.
