Sleeping bags are pretty much second only to water bottles in terms of things that you’re guaranteed to need while backpacking. At some point you’re going to want to sleep outdoors in a tent, or you might just need a bit more cover in a chilly hostel one night. Here’s our selection of them, for a variety of seasons. We’ve also included a couple of sleeping mats, because no one really wants to sleep directly on the ground. It may be hardcore, but it’s seriously uncomfortable!
