Sleeping Bag Insulation
High technology has struck again. This time, the technology has struck
the sleeping bag market. Not too many years ago, sleeping bags were all
made from goose down or polyester. Today, however, in an effort both
to improve sleeping bag insulation and to dazzle consumers about their
products, manufacturers now use a multitude of "cool" sounding names
for sleeping bag insulation.
Since anyone who is searching for a sleeping bag will inevitably stumble
across this terminology, I thought it would be helpful to prepare this
guide that explains the terminology about the different types of sleeping
bag insulation available.
So lets get started. And at the bottom of the page I'll recommend what
types of insulation you might want to get for differing camping situations.
The Five Primary Types of Sleeping Bag Insulation
There are five major types of sleeping bag insulation a consumer will
stumble across when searcing for a sleeping bag. While other insulation
types DO exist, these five are by far the most common.
Goose down insulation is the classic insulation
used in sleeping bags, and, despite all the technological advances, still
the most efficient insulation around. Goose down provides the most warmth
for the least bulk, allowing for very warm sleeping bags that are in
very, very small packages.
