Re: Down or Synthetic?

Re: Down or Synthetic?

WOW :shock: Thanks for all the info. I also will try to copy the blue one. Maybe I'll get some material this weekend. I looked at Walmart but couldn't find any webbing.

Re: Down or Synthetic?

Thanks Guy. I've seen pictures of bags like the one on the left. I think using a cinch on one side would cause the bag to curl to that side and you would have to work the bag under the tightened strap to compress the other side. What dia. are these bags?

Re: Down or Synthetic?

Thank you, I'll have to get a compression bag next. It's been washed and is in a large bag(too big). With two cats in the house I don't want it where it will collect cat hair and holes from their clawing :x

Re: Down or Synthetic?

I've used an older synthetic mummy bag rated to 32F car camping but it's too large in it's attached stuff sack. Do you think I can compress it without damaging it?
