How To Roll Up a Sleeping Bag: Step-by-Step Guide

If you have ever been camping or slept outdoors, you are and must be familiar with the sleeping bag. It can be the best and the worst thing for you, depending on how you use it.

Sleeping in a sleeping bag is fine and it may not be the most comfortable sleep in the world but at least you are warm and cozy. What is worse is when you have to get up the next morning and have to roll it back up and try to put it back in the cover.

Have you ever had that moment where you thought how was it easy to get the sleeping bag out of its cover but putting it back in is just a complete nightmare?

That feeling is something that almost every person who has used a sleeping bag has felt and gone through.

How Can You Roll Up the Sleeping Bag in a Simple Way?

Now, in order to know how you can roll up the sleeping bag nicely and carefully so that it fits perfectly in its cover, you first need to make sure that you are prepared to go through all the steps.

Following each step properly and completing it in a proper way is enough to start the process.

Here is a step-by-step process on how to roll up a sleeping bag to make it look perfect and beautiful.

Step One: Make Sure all the Materials Are There

So, now that you are starting, make sure that you have all the necessary materials pertaining to the sleeping bag.

The things that you will need is the sleeping bag itself, some straps that will help hold the bag down and keeping it secure and someone else present, in case the sleeping bag doesn’t go inside the carry bag easily. 

Step Two: Put Sleeping Bag Down

Now, let’s begin. Simply, put your sleeping bag evenly on the ground and try to flatten it as much as you can. The reason for that is because the more you flatten the sleeping bag, the easier it will be to fold it.

Step Three: Fold the Sleeping Bag

Now, this is where it may just get a little tricky. Once you have laid out your sleeping bag, you now need to fold it in half the long way. This means that the length will be bigger than the width. By folding it from the top you will flatten it again.

Step Four: Roll the Bag Tightly

Place a heavy object on the head of the sleeping bag so that it can easily and tightly be rolled up. Slowly go upwards towards the top of the sleeping bag and then use the straps to hold it in position and tie them tightly. 

Now that it has been strapped tightly, you can pick it up and place it in another bag for safekeeping. This way you can take care of your sleeping bag in an organized way.
