Hi all,

Bought a couple of sleeping bags awhile ago, one left one right.

One of the bags tore on the inside and I am getting it replaced under warranty. The only problem is was it the Left or the Right the only place it states which one it is is on the storage bag, which have now been mixed up. Store owner wasn't much help either and it is an online store so I can't check out which is which.

Can anyone help me work out which is left/right?

I'm fairly sure that when you are lying down in the bag, if the zip is on the right, then it is a right hand bag and vice versa. I'm sure the manufacturer would know how they label their bags....surely!

Are you dinkum mate?
left and right hand sleeping bags?

We have a couple that can be unzipped completely and laid out flat, or zipped together to make a double bag.

But they are identical. When you lay one on top of the other, the zips are oriented opposite to enable them to join together.

Fair dinkum mate!!!

They are a mummy style -5 lightweight that are great to travel with as individual sleeping bags, but when we take the trailer away we can join them together and use them as one.

Does it really matter, left or right , I wouldn't care, it isn't hard to unzip or zip up a bag..! If you can't tell which bag is left and right by looking at them then that about somes up the whole thing.! LOL

If the bag does not have a hood then usually there is no left or right. Simply by placing one on top of the other they should zip together.
If they have hoods then usually there is a difference. The right hand bag if laid open flat will have the hood on the right. Obviously then the left hand will have the hood on the left.
Normally there is a tag sewn onto most bags with details of the temp rating, fill type etc & also has a RH or LH printed on it as well if there is an option to join them together.
Don't be concerned Kelvin by the negative responses as it only highlights their lack of understanding ;-)
