Synthetic Sleeping Bags

These sleeping bags are more severe, absorb more moisture, less durable, and, again, more suitable for Nedalny travel by car, because they more aesthetically reminiscent of the bed, a soft, pleasant to the touch, do not rustle. They also need people who are allergic to synthetics. Synthetic lighter, more protected from getting wet, more wear-resistant and easier to wash, and they are more expensive than the bags using natural materials. Finally, the main division accounted for filling the bags. The first group – it's down sleeping bags. It is well known advantages of down, like a heater, but the main parameter of choice is the quality of the fluff, and not its quantity. Alas, the fluff has its disadvantages.

For example, the inability to use in high humidity, because in spite of the natural lubricant and special impregnation, down perfectly absorbs moisture and dries very bad. Therefore for the winter tours to areas with moderate humidity downy sleeping great, and for other cases it is necessary to choose other fillers. Synthetic fillers can also be divided into two main groups – a synthetic padding and silicone hollow fiber. Sinteponovye sleeping best known in this country. They are the cheapest, designed for temperatures of -5 to a maximum of -10 degrees, weigh from 1100 to 2300g and have received the most widespread. In principle, for hikes on the Karelian Isthmus in summer, for water hikes for summer trips to the Kola Peninsula, for the garden and giving the perfect option – what is called a "cheap and cheerful". The main drawback syntepon – fast enough "caking", resulting in a few years sleeping bag will lose 20 percent of its thermal characteristics.

More insistent lately we declare themselves sleeping with silicone hollow inside fillings. They are lightweight (900g), warm (down to -25 degrees), it is easy obliterated very quickly dry, absorb minimal moisture. These sleeping bags have virtually no drawbacks, except for relatively high prices, although prices are gradually falling with the advent of new, cheaper technologies. The principle of conservation of heat in these fillers are more or less the same: a hollow "makaronine contains the air that does not give you the warmth of you to leave. These materials differ from each other in density, thickness fibers and the number of internal holes in each fiber.
