Episode 51: Duck, Duck Goose Down Bags

On this episode we talk all about sleeping bags – from down to synthetic and everything in between. We will offer you pro tips on how maximize your sleeping bags life and loft. Then answer the age old question – what is the best sleeping bag out there. Is there really a “best one”?

On this podcast we talk about:

  • EN Ratings / TEMP CONTROL
  • How to buy a sleeping bag? Work backwards
  • Q & A – We answer your questions about sleeping bags.

Pro Tips:

In an 80% relative humidity environment, an untreated 15-degree down sleeping bag loses up to 30% of its loft over a period of eight hours. A 30% loss of loft essentially turns a 15-degree sleeping bag into a 30-degree sleeping bag. DriDown™ sleeping bags avoid this loss of thermal efficiency by retaining 98% of their loft.

Hang your sleeping bag up by the loops on the foot of the bag in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
This allows the insulation to be fully uncompressed while your bag is in storage and ensures a long life for you bag.
If you’re short on space, lay your bag under your bed so it stays fully lofted and out of your way.
