What is a sleep sack? Well they are a light weight, easily storable sack that you simply tuck yourself into like a sleeping bag. What makes them so popular is that not only are these sleep sacks convenient to use but they are a cooler alternative to other types of blankets. The sleeping sack can also provide warmth depending on the material you choose.
These sacks are more commonly used as liners for sleeping bags as they help keep your bag from getting dirty inside. It is much easier to throw one of these sacks into the wash after sleeping in them from a camping trip or a sleep over, rather than sending your whole bag to a dry cleaner which is more costly.
Sleeping sacks do come in different kinds of fabric material ranging from cottons to fleeces depending on your needs and likes. There are also different sizes of sacks, so if you want a single or if you are sharing your sleeping quarters, they come as double, queen or king as well. You can also have the option of either slipping into your sack from an opening on top like a conventional bag, or you can slip into it from the side with a zip-up or velcro system.
The sleeping sack is not only great for camping but if you travel a lot and do not want to use those hotel sheets simply take it out of its own sack and it is ready to use. You are guaranteed clean bedding for the night. Also, hotels generally have cotton linens so if you suffer from allergies you can get a sack in silk and you won’t have to worry about sniffling and sneezing all night.
Sleeping sacks are a great multi-purpose bag to sleep in. Convenient to have whether it be just for home, camping or traveling you will be glad you had one of these sacks to sleep in.
