TIME : 2016/3/18 14:36:07
Some camping gear can be sacrificed on the way or left behind if you so desire. But there are certain pieces of equipment that you are going to want to have with you regardless of what happens along the way. Two of these items are the sleeping bag and the tent.

Someone new to camping might say that they are all the same and not to spend too much time worrying about which one you get. But a more experienced camper knows how important it is to make the right decisions.

So when you start making decisions, be careful to choose the right one. One of the factors you will want to consider is the comfort versus weight ratio.

There is always going to be some kind of tradeoff and you will only want to take one. So you will want to know what kind of conditions to expect on your trip.

After you determine what kind of weather you are in for than you can narrow down your choices. Many campers prefer down because it keeps you warm but is light.

And once you decide on a sleeping bag, you will turn your attention to the tent. You will again have to decide between comfort and weight when looking at tents.

And for both decisions, you'll want to know how many people intend to use the equipment. The more people, the bigger the size you will be needing.

That being said, in the warmer months you can go a bit lighter. But in the colder months you will be forced to go with heavier options so you can have more protection.

So once you figure out what you are going to have to be prepared for then you can start choosing the appropriate equipment. The first step is the most important so spend some time figuring it out before you buy.
