Choosing The Right Sleeping Bag

Having the wrong sleeping bag leads to not much sleep at all. When choosing a bag, match the temperature rating of the bag to anticipated temperatures of the location you’ll be in. Keep in mind, not all rating systems are the same between manufacturers.

Consider the following when choosing a bag:

1. What are the lowest anticipated temperatures?
2. Sleeping surface?  Snow? Rock? Scree?
3. What is your sleeping style - Do you sleep cold or hot?
4. Wet climate or dry?

Peter Whittaker: Mountain Guide"Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. That’s my philosophy. I always go with a bag that’s 5-10 degrees colder than the anticipated low temperatures. For me, the extra ounces are worth it for a little more warmth and a good night’s sleep. " Peter Whittaker
 

 

 

"I sleep cold in the mountains, so I tend to bring a bag rated  colder than the forecasted low temp." - Solveig Waterfall

Tips for Layering in the Mountains

Mountain climbing demands a lot from your body.  One of the biggest challenges in cold environments is regulating your body temperature, which is critical for optimum performance. The best way to stabilize your temperature is through layering.  Layering allows you to:
    a. Manage body temperature efficiently
    b. Minimize sweat
    c. Insulate from the cold
    d. Protect from wind, rain, snow

Shed a Layer - If you are comfortable when standing still, you will overheat quickly once you start climbing.

Keep Cool - If possible, avoid sweating.  Once your layers get wet it is difficult to dry them out during a day of activity.

Regulate Your Temperature - Climbing efficiently is directly related to how hot or cold your body is running. Taking the time to shed or add a layer will improve your climb.

Layer Up at Rest Breaks - Quickly throw on a jacket or your parka at a break to trap the heat you generated climbing.
