It’s a scorcher! If you’re going camping this summer you may want to pick a 1 season, summer sleeping bag.
As the UK basks in a heat wave you may find your trusty two season sleeping bag a little two toasty, so if the fine weather continues (*crosses fingers*) it may be worth investing in a lightweight one season bag. Summer bags are ideal for trekkers and festival goers who wish to back a few more cans of cider.
