Sleeping bags: Specific criteria are the focus of manufacturing techniques

Camping enthusiasts who place high demands on a sleeping bag know that the focus is on the insulating effect if sleeping bags are to fulfill their function. It is the user who warms the sleeping bag and the quality of the insulation is connected with it. Basically, sleeping bags differ in their different filling materials. Down sleeping bags as well as synthetic sleeping bags meet different criteria, which are primarily geared to the temperature of the area of ​​use. The fine breast fluff of ducks and geese is called down, which, in contrast to the conventional feather, has no keel and is all the softer. Down is ideal as insulation against extreme cold. The air that is bound between the down prevents circulation and thus ensures sufficient warmth at low temperatures. The special effect of the air binding means that the camper benefits even at high temperatures and is protected from overheating in the sleeping bag. The individual mixing ratio of the down in a sleeping bag influences the quality that a good model should meet. Basically, the higher the proportion of down, the more efficient the degree of air insulation.

Sleeping bag made of synthetic fibers: innovative materials set trends

In the online shop of you will find a large selection of well-known sleeping bag manufacturers who have switched to new development methods for synthetic sleeping bags that have already proven themselves in practical tests.

This sleeping bag convinces with a surprisingly small pack size and the versatility of handling in the outdoor area. In this particular variant, too, the area of ​​application determines the type of filling. While the fine down is suitable for extremely low temperatures and dry cold, the synthetic fiber not only impresses with its easy-care properties, but also with quick drying.

The most important sleeping bag shapes at a glance

Mummy sleeping bags

Made of down, synthetic fiber or wool

Mummy sleeping bags are definitely best suited for lower temperatures because their shape guarantees optimal insulation. Due to an exact fit to the body, no unnecessary material is required, which means that the mummy sleeping bag can score with a low weight and small pack size. In order to take full advantage of the warming properties of the mummy sleeping bag, it is important to buy the right size sleeping bag.


Filling: down or synthetic fiber?

Down is certainly the filling that offers the best sleeping comfort. In contrast to synthetic fibers, it can regulate the temperature much better, which makes a significantly larger temperature range pleasant. Down sleeping bags are also significantly lighter and have a smaller pack size.

In the case of sleeping bags with down filling, a distinction can first be made between goose and down feathers. Goose feathers are of higher quality, but of course also a little more expensive. Another feature of the filling is the manufacturer’s information about the filling:

90/10 filling = 90% down, 10% feathers
(Easiest and warmest – but quick clumping in high humidity. Good sleeping pad needed, because the compression of the durums under the body is strong)

80/20 filling = 80% down, 20% feathers
(slightly heavier than 90/10 and less insulating (still very good!), but not very sensitive to moisture)

70/30 filling = 70% down, 30% feathers
(Actually no weight and heat advantages compared to a good synthetic sleeping bag. But it is very comfortable and durable)

The main advantages of synthetic fiber over down are:

Dries faster

Compression less. That means you always have a thick cushioning layer under your weight, which is sometimes lost when compressed down.
Synthetic fibers are cheaper than down (but they also have a shorter lifespan)
Especially in the tropics, where down sleeping bags are endangered by the high air humidity and the possible infestation by microbes, a synthetic sleeping bag can be much more suitable.

Filling: wool

In addition to down and synthetic fibers, some manufacturers also use wool (new wool) as insulation material in their sleeping bags. It also lends itself very well as a filling material because it:

– can effectively store heat
-insensitive to moisture
– is moisture regulating
-also has a cooling effect in warmth
– is a natural and renewable raw material that can be recycled
– offers a favorable ratio of heat output and weight
-easy to wash

A sleeping bag made of wool is particularly suitable if you are traveling to areas where it is a bit humid, you do not have to look at every gram and value sleeping comfort and sleeping climate. Wool sleeping bags are the ideal companions in spring, summer and autumn, in a mix with down (e.g. 70% down / 30% wool) also for winter.

Outer material: nylon and polyester fabric

Humans lose 250g – 500g of moisture during the night, which is ideally transported outside by the sleeping bag fabric. In order to get the fabric down-proof, it must also be extremely tightly calendered (treat with special rollers). However, this makes the fabric stiffer. The denser the original fabric, the less calendering is required and a soft feel is retained. Most manufacturers offer sleeping bags with outer materials:

-Nylon (easiest)
-Polyester (most comfortable)
-Microfiber fabric (extremely heat-insulating and water-repellent, but somewhat heavier than nylon)

Temperature range

For the measurement, the sleeping bags are tested by the manufacturers in certified laboratories, which unfortunately use different measuring techniques. However, the following 3 measuring ranges are distinguished:

-Comfort: A ‘standard woman’ (25 years, 60 kg, 1.60 m) can just sleep without freezing
-Limit: A ‘standard man’ (25 years, 70 kg, 1.73 m) can just sleep without freezing
-Extremely: A ‘standard woman’ (25 years, 60 kg, 1.60 m) does not get frostbite yet. However, we consider this value to be extremely critical.

The comfort value should therefore always serve as a guide when buying a sleeping bag. At this point it should be noted that the sleeping pad also makes a significant contribution to the sensation of warmth in the sleeping bag. Very good insulating mats are, for example, self-inflating thermal insulation mats. However, caution should be used when the temperature is below zero: condensation in the mat can freeze, which means that the insulating effect is lost. Classic mattresses are much better for such purposes.

It should also be noted that this standard cannot be applied to children’s sleeping bags. There is currently no uniform solution for children’s sleeping bags.
Further purchase criteria

The right sleeping bag size

Especially when used in cooler and cold areas, it is absolutely crucial that the sleeping bag is the right size. You cannot feel comfortable in a sleeping bag that is too tight and you can quickly overcool due to the restricted freedom of movement. The same applies to sleeping bags that are too large: existing cavities must also be filled with warm air, which of course means that energy is already lost. You can possibly find a remedy here, for example by stuffing clothes into the empty foot area.

Hood and warm collar

Since people release up to 30% of their body heat through their heads, it is pleasant to have a hood on the sleeping bag in cold regions, which can be tied with a drawstring. This minimizes heat loss and keeps the body warm longer. Some sleeping bags also have a filled thermal collar that can be placed around the neck and thus prevents the warm air from escaping from the inside of the sleeping bag.

Hood and warm collar are often only available for mummy sleeping bags and a few egg-shaped models.


With good sleeping bags, the zips are covered on the inside, so that they don’t press uncomfortably and secondly, the insulation is guaranteed. Often there are protective strips on the left and right of the zipper to prevent jamming when opening and closing.

There are many sleeping bags with zippers on the left or right side. In principle there is no standard recipe which side is more suitable. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether left or right is more comfortable for them. Here are a few tips:

Right-handed people generally find it easier to open when the zipper is on the left and vice versa
If you often travel with a partner, it is nice to take a sleeping bag with a zipper on the left and one with a zipper on the right.

If you have two sleeping bags of exactly the same model, right and left zippers can even be coupled so that a large sleeping bag is created.

For people who might want to couple their sleeping bag with a bivy bag, a zipper on the right is recommended, since this is often only available on the right.
