Sticky Note

Left or right zip

A little question but so many people ask us that we think it is worthy of its own sticky. So just what do we mean by a left or right zip?

Basically it is the side the zip is on when you are laying face up in your sleeping bag. So most right handed people would go for a left zip since it is easier to reach across your body and operate the zip.

With some of our range you can connect two sleeping bags side by side with opposite zips - so this could help if you want to get cosy. Currently our SkyeHigh, AlpineDream and ArcticDream bags have compatible left and right zips but please check with our Customer Support Heros to make sure.
