Sierra Trading Post Tip: Down comforters can be used all year because of their insulating properties. Make sure your down sleeping bag fully unzips if you plan to use it for a comforter, too. Some sleeping bags now come with "pillow pockets," where you can stuff a nylon jacket and it becomes an instant pillow, and sleeping pads that attach via pad loops, to keep the bag and pad together even under the most restless sleeper. Most of these options are not available on a discount sleeping bag. Ask your retailer about the options available on the bags they carry.
