Found 18th Oct 2008
Can anyone help me please. Im looking for a sleeping bag for my son to go next week on his first overnight camp in a tent but I don't know what I should be looking for in the way of warmth, waterproof and comfort. Any advise ?


If you have a Blacks close to where you live then they will almost certainly be able to give you some advice. Alternatively you could email them a question through their web site:…ice

Alternatively, I've found another web site called which appears to provide the sort of advice you need:…asp

Sorry I can't help personally because I've never been camping, but hopefully the above two places will give you a start.

thank you Fireball I went and got one from Blacks who were very helpful and even gave me a discount as it was for the Cubs. My son reported back that he was nice and warm but the wind and rain kept him awake......Well you can't win them all I guess.
