2 season sleeping bags
A sleeping bag heats up thanks to the filling of the thermal partitions, which is only its thickness. The thicker, the more warm air retention; and, therefore, heats more isolating more optimally from the outside.
However. Both the quantity of the filling and the quality of it indicate its thermal performance. Between two sleeping bags with the same amount of filling, offers better thermal performance that has a higher quality pen because it expands more. Therefore, it heats more.
However, feather sleeping bags regulate temperature better; that is, with the same pen and fiber weight the synthetic filling heats less, occupies more and weighs more. When looking for an extremely hot bag from Vertic we recommend discarding the fiber. In addition, a sleeping bag with feathers has a longer life than synthetic ones.
The quality of the filling, that is, of the pen, is expressed through CUINS (CUbic INCHES or cubic inches). For optimum performance from Vertic we recommend the use of at least 600 CUINS on the mountain. At the same time, the amount of pen is also important. In other words, the total grams.
In addition to the quality and quantity of the filling, when buying a sleeping bag you must also take into account other features such as the temperature range, the type of outer fabric, its breathability, water repellency or maintenance.
The sleeping bags -10 of mountain are designed for activities in the mountain during the summer or in time of halftime. Its optimal use is designed for shelter, tent or bivouac; always, now well, depending on the weather conditions.
For the pen to extend correctly through the thermal partitions, it is necessary that the outer fabric is light to facilitate its expansion. Otherwise, the thermal performance is reduced despite having a high filling in both quality and quantity.
Most sleeping bags are water repellent, which is not the same as waterproof. To achieve impermeability, from Vertic we recommend the use of bivouac covers. And, if they were waterproof, they would not perspire enough.
Breathability is a transcendental attribute, since it expels the sweat generated by the body in the form of vapor, avoiding condensation. Thus, a beneficial microclimate is generated for a proper rest.
To keep it at home, and not to lose thermal performance, from Vertic we recommend doing it by inserting the front part into the compression sleeve first. In this way, the pens do not stay in the same way. Above all, you do not have to roll it up. You have to keep it in any way so that the feathers are not always in the same position.
Another important aspect is ventilation. Now, never do it under the sun's ultraviolet rays even if it's wet.
