Down Versus Synthetic

Sierra Trading Post Tip: Down sleeping bags, such as the Moonstone sleeping bag line, are the choice of backpackers because of their light weight, excellent insulation, and ability to compress down to a tiny size. The Moonstone sleeping bag line has been rated a "Best Buy" from Backpacker Magazine. Moonstone makes a variety of sleeping bags in short and long models, with fill ratings down to zero degrees and below. What you choose is simply a matter of personal preference, budget, and necessity. Look for bags like the Moonstone sleeping bag that offer a variety of sizes, shapes, and fill powers to meet just about every need.
