Sleeping Bag Care

In this usage tips, we have compiled some valuable tips for you take care of your sleeping bag and have it handy and in full operation for much longer:

This fiber expansion process, filling it with air, is what provides the efficiency of filling, since the air is the best insulator there is. Some models have computer tech and you can leave it on the hanger. Another good way to save it is inside a huge cotton bag, away from the dust and without compressing it, but this alternative may require a physical space that you don’t have.

And let it dry a bit of condensation of your body during the night. But be careful not to let him eternally in the Sun, which is also detrimental to the nylon.
