Stay dry
Posted by Rutting Moose on May 01 2006
I agree you don't want a Down sleeping bag. You also don't want a wet sleeping bag. It will happen as Mike pointed out. What I do to protect my sleeping bag from getting wet: I use plastic bags (large 55 gallon bags). I put one over the bag and I will sleep in one to protect the inside of the bag from my wet clothes if I need to.

I could also recommend you spend lots of $$$$$ on other types of bags, for a dollar you can't go wrong. If you want to double your protection used 2 bags.

People who used Down sleeping bags also use plastic on long hikes to protect the bags.
