Okay, so here we are at the polyfil or synthetic sleeping bag page.
As was discussed before, the advantages of the poly fill bags are lower cost, thermal retention even when wet, and comparable loft to the more expensive Down bags.
If you are less concerned about weight and more concerned about cost and being warm even if you are wet then this is the right place.
Hopefully the right information will here to help with good camping gear choices.
Man-made materials have come a long way since the invention of the sleeping bag.
Now, poly fill bags are warm and very light weight. They pack down pretty small too.
They might be just a hair heavier and a little larger but unless you’re an ultra-light backpacker the difference will be minimal.
Here again it is a good idea to remember that some of the dealer brands are of very good quality and usually cheaper as well. So shop and compare.
Look below for some of our better finds and then shop the links.We hope to help you make great camping gear choices.
Starting with warm weather bags then moving on to some rated for colder weather.
