Camping trips can be viewed as an escape back to nature. No electricity, no roof over our heads, and no bed to sleep in. When the temperature begins to drop, camping at night isn't quite as fun if you haven't brought a sufficient sleeping bag. Shopping for the best sleeping bag for cold weather is a task that will surely pay off on those chilly nights.

The North Face Cat's Meow

This sleeping bag is a mummy-style bag, meaning the sleeping bag encompasses your entire body including your head. The Cat's Meow bag has been recommended by several different magazines as the best sleeping bag. Made with an insulation called Climashield, this sleeping bag is lighter and softer than many others made with synthetic insulation and is rated for temperatures as low as -6.67 degrees Celsius. Owners rave of its durability and light weight, weighing in at only 1.36 Kilogram. Every North Face Cat's Meow bag comes with a one-year warranty and averages around £97.

Western Mountaineering UltraLite

This sleeping bag comes highly recommended by users and magazine editors alike. Weighing in at just under 0.907 Kilogram, the Western Mountaineering UltraLite bag is regarded as the lightest and warmest sleeping bag around. This sleeping bag is made with down insulation and a breathable water repellent cover. Owners receive a lifetime warranty with the purchase of the Western Mountaineering UltraLite sleeping bag, making its price of around £234 a bit more reasonable.

GoLite Adrenaline 0

With temperatures tested down to -17.8 degrees Celsius, this may be the sleeping bag for you if you're planning a trip to somewhere below freezing. The GoLite Adrenaline 0 has been rated as the top sleeping bag by several different camping gear guides. Made from water repellent material and insulated with 800-fill down, this bag is still surprisingly light at only 1.25 Kilogram. The GoLite Adrenaline 0 sleeping bag comes with a lifetime warranty and averages around £260.

Named the Editor's Choice by Backpacker magazine in 2009, this sleeping bag is tested to temperatures as low as -9.44 degrees Celsius. Made from water repellent microfiber and filled with down insulation, this sleeping bag still manages to weigh in at only 0.907 Kilogram.
