Mummy, rectangular, ultralight, synthetic, down, water-repellent down, full zip, no zip, and the list of sleeping bag options continues. It’s no wonder why customers’ heads spin when starting a sleeping bag search, which poses a substantial opportunity to connect with your shop. With OBJ’s Retail College: How to Sell Sleeping Bags online course, sales associates will dive into the sleeping bag styles, pros and cons of different insulations, decipher temperature ratings, and get tips on how to direct consumers to what they need. With this course you’ll learn the ins and outs of closing a sleeping bag sale.

To create this course, we partnered with Mike Grobicki of Alpenglow Sports. With his expert input, we’ve developed a course full of actionable tips and tricks that you can start implementing immediately in your store’s sleeping bag department.

In a special video lesson, retail rock star Malcolm Daly drops some pro tips on how to help customers understand R-Values and the importance of matching your sleeping bag to your sleeping pad.
