I can't decide which branch in the military I want to join. I'm torn between the army and the navy. Any opinions?

Do you like sleeping in the mud or in a hot tent - join the Army.
If you want an air conditioned bed on a clean ship with hot showers - Go Navy.

Would I feel the cold while I'm inside the sleeping bag?

Some people feel the cold more than others, if this applies to you then remove about 5 Celsius from the lower comfort temperature. For example, a bag with a comfort rating of 0 Celsius might be better, if you are susceptible to the cold, than a bag that has a comfort rating of 5 Celsius.

How to pick the right temperature rating?

This is very important so pay attention. When manufacturers tell you a bag is rated for -10 Celsius, they mean that it will keep you alive at a temperature down to -10 Celsius. They don't mean you'll be comfortable. You'll freeze but you'll survive to tell about it. For comfort, you need a sleeping bag rated about 20 Celsius to 25 Celsius colder than the expected nighttime temperature on your camping trip. For example if you are expecting zero degree nights, then buy a -20 Celsius to -25 Celsius sleeping bag.

What is a sleeping bag temperature rating?

When choosing a sleeping bag, you should choose one rated for the lowest temperature you expect to be exposed to.

Interestingly, it's been scientifically proven that women (on average) sleep colder than men. As a result, most sleeping bag manufacturers have adopted the European Norm (EN) 13537 as the standard for temperature ratings. This is a 3 part spectrum rating (a rating for women, men, and a survival extreme).

What is the best to care for my sleeping bag?

When not in use, sleeping bags should be kept away from high heat and away from moisture.

Store in a dry location in moderate temperature.

During use, try to keep the sleeping bag dry and away from open flame.

After use, air dries the sleeping bag outside for several hours.

Follow the manufacturer's instruction for cleaning the sleeping bag. Instructions differ based on the type of material and insulation.
