How to attach sleeping bag to backpack

Carrying your sleeping bag on your back during a hike can be a bit of a challenge. If you don't have it securely attached to your backpack, it can be a distraction causing you to be less steady on your feet and could throw you off balance. In this quick read, we'll show you a few different ways to attach your sleeping bag to your backpack so you can keep it with you and wear it comfortably on all your adventures.

Lots of backpackers roll their sleeping bag like a bedroll and use carabiners, bungee cords or straps to secure the sleeping bag horizontally across the top or bottom, or vertically up the side, of their backpack.

Carabiners

One way to attach your sleeping bag to your backpack is by using carabiners. You can thread the straps of your sleeping bag through the loops on the carabiners and then clip them onto the outside of your backpack. This method is quick and easy, and keeps your sleeping bag easily accessible anytime during your hike.

Bungee Cords

Another way to attach your sleeping bag to your backpack is by using bungee cords. You can thread the bungee cords through the loops on your sleeping bag and then loop them around the outside of your backpack. This method is secure and keeps your sleeping bag tightly packed against the back of your backpack.

Straps

You can also use straps to attach your sleeping bag to your backpack. Thread the straps through the loops on your sleeping bag and then loop them around the outside of your backpack. This method is adjustable, so you can make it as tight or as loose as you need it to be.

There are a few different ways to attach your sleeping bag to your backpack. Using carabiners is quick and easy, and using bungee cords or straps keeps your sleeping bag securely in place. Choose the method that works best for you and enjoy carrying your sleeping bag on all of your adventures.

Do You Enjoy the Outdoors as Much as We Do?

If you like to listen while walking or relaxing outdoors like we do, you can get lots of great music with Amazon Prime Music or 2 FREE Audiobooks from Audible Plus!

I love learning and I never give myself enough time to read books, so I love listening to a great book or motivating myself with great songs when out for my daily walks.

Plus, if you want to take advantage of 2-day shipping, get a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. ( I used to think free shipping was the biggest benefit of Amazon Prime, but have you seen how many new movies have been added to Amazon Prime lately?) PLUS, did you know if you receive qualifying government assistance like SNAP or Medicaid, and others you can save even more with Prime Access.
