A Note on sleeping bags.
Purchasing the correct Recon Sleeping Bag for your needs is important, we are pleased to offer these simple facts to help you decide which one is best for you, how to maximise it’s performance and what to realistically expect from your choice.
To help maintain the temperature rating and get the best out of your Recon Sleeping Bag you must take into account the following.
The Thermal Temperature Rating provided on all sleeping bags is just a guide - what you do, wear and eat will affect your sleeping experience. So
Always Use a camp mat or equivalent on the ground to increase protection and the temperature (thermal resistance) of your sleeping bag.
Always use a top cover or a shelter around your sleeping bag to increase protection and the temperature (thermal resistance).
Always place your bag / camping ground area out of wind, go behind a rock or tree or in a crevice to get out of the wind ( this helps in reducing your exposure to the wind chill factor )
If you expect to be out in the open with no shelter whatsoever then purchase a sleeping bag cover (bivvi ) this will add water/rain resistance plus an additional layer of protection therefore increasing the thermal resistance even more.
If you know you are a hot or cold sleeper then go up or down a level in temperature to allow for this
It Is known that certain types of food affect your sleeping comfort and can make you colder or hotter therefore be aware of what you are eating and how it may affect you
Alcohol will decrease your body temperature therefore reducing the sleeping bags ability to keep you warm.
Always wear layers of clothing inside a sleeping bag, remove shoes if possible and wear thick socks and a beanie on your head, heat transfers out of your extremities so keep them covered!!
The retailer and manufacturer request that you take these facts into account so that you have the best sleeping experience possible. Sleeping bags are unable to be returned unless there is a fault in the workmanship so please choose carefully.
