One of the items in our kit that will be an invaluable resource to you in a cold environment is the Eureka sleeping bag. This bag is rated down to 0 degrees F which means you should be able to stay comfortable in it even if the temp is zero outside. While this is slick marketing on the part of the sleeping bag companies, you should note that not all bodies are the same. I have actually used this bag in weather, but nothing near 0 degrees, yet.
Telling people about sleeping bags on camera is not real exciting I must admit, so I try to add a little humor. All sleeping bags are mostly the same, right? This is true, but please take the time to watch the video, because I try to point out the things that I particularly like about this bag. The things I am pointing out are the things that I have discovered over 40 years of sleeping outside…….alot, will prove to be beneficial to you about this bag.
I cannot say enough about what seem like small things, but are actually big things. A strong zipper, a hood that will cinch around you, a headliner that wicks moisture, etc. These seemingly insignificant features make this bag one that you can use and practice with for a very long while. I have two of them now and we love them.
Until next time, I hope to see you on, or off, the trail!
