Don’t be like your Grandad, who doesn’t ever give in when you blackmail him for his top-secret cake recipe. A tip like this is worth sharing!
And it's our sales assistant Gaël who has the best solution for you.
Forget all those tiring methods (no, I'm not exaggerating at all) of folding your sleeping bag, where you end up on your stomach trying to get as much air out as possible. I can see you hurting your knees trying to roll your sleeping bag up as tightly as you can. Ah, you even folded it in half to compress it as much as possible, didn't you? Stop what you’re doing!
In fact, it's a lot simpler than you might think.
Just stuff it into its cover in a random, or I might even say, "haphazard" fashion. In no time at all, you'll see that the air escapes by itself, and you’ll be left with a perfectly compressed sleeping bag. As well as being a quick and effective method, this tip will help you keep your sleeping bag in good shape over time. Why? Gaël shares an important piece of information with us: Never fold your sleeping bag the same way every time because this will wear out the fibres and compromise its ability to retain heat. Remember to alternate between putting the top and the bottom of the sleeping bag in first when you put it in its cover.
I told you it was easy! I also recommend you watch the video so that you can become the king or queen of sleeping-bag folding.
