Sleeping Bag Size Guide
When you're choosing a sleeping bag, there's a few things to consider — where you're going, what the temperature is likely to be and which type of insulation you want. In addition, it's worth considering what size sleeping bag will suit you best. At Macpac, we know everyone's different, so we offer a variety of sleeping bag sizes across our range. With standard, extra-large and women's sizes available, you're sure to find the best bag for your next adventure.
To help guide you, we recommend considering your height and shoulder width. Check your measurements against those of our bags for the right size.
In general, we recommend the following:
- For 'mummy' shaped bags, we recommend the maximum user height is 25 cm less than the stated length of the bag
- For rectangular shaped bags, we recommend the maximum user height is 30 cm less than the stated length of the bag
- For kids' sleeping bags, we recommend the maximum user height is 20 cm less than the stated length of the bag

Choosing the right size
It's important to have the right size sleeping bag for a few reasons. Firstly, to maximise warmth and comfort, and secondly, to minimise weight. To maximise warmth, you want to reduce the amount of air space between you and the inner walls of your bag — however you still need enough room to move comfortably and to allow the down to fully loft for thermal efficiency. Remember, if you're still unsure or think you're between sizes, it's best to visit a store to try them out.
Designed for women, these sleeping bags have a more feminine shape with increased room at the hips and a slightly narrower shoulder. Featuring the same fill weight (or quantity) of down as our regular sleeping bags, the women's specific version is marginally shorter in length. This provides a greater concentration of down for improved core insulation.
This measurement is taken inside the bag, from the top of the hood down to the foot seam.
