Choosing the right sleeping bag makes the difference between sleep comfortably or spend endless night.
After a day of camp the body needs a good night ‘s sleep. There is a myth that says that in camp not rest or sleep uncomfortable and bad. If we take certain precautions and equip ourselves accordingly we will ensure that this does not happen.
On many occasions I have heard comments acampantes about how uncomfortable it is to sleep in camp. On more than one occasion, invaded by doubt, I asked to see inside their stores which equipment used. Huge surprise I took to see that the sleeping equipment they used was not suitable either for a short nap, at other times I have seen people trying to spend the night in his tent on the ground only a thin blanket homestyle, no sleeping bag , no insulation or mattresses.
For this to happen we must know what the team sleep in camp; and possibly supply us with the necessary elements according to the type of activity that we develop on Andyoutdoor.
The sleeping bag is the place where we rest, where we will recover after an active day outdoors. Knowing how to choose the right sleeping bag will make the difference between sleep comfortably or spend endless night.
Fiber sleeping bag
There are basically two types of bags: The synthetic padding and feather or duvet.
The synthetic filler tend to be cheaper but heavy and bulky.

Moreover they are heavier and therefore not compressed when saving in the backpack. Another disadvantage of the synthetic fibers against the feather is that with time and use more rapidly deteriorate, lose volume and capabilities coat
There are different types of synthetic fibers such as Holofill, Polaguard, Quallofil, Liteloft, Primuloft or Thinsulate, with different results as far as shelter is concerned.
