    Plenty more vendors in the US, may well work out cheaper than Germany or finland.

    Have a look at them mate, decide on your colours/budget/intended weight and then you can check back in here to the great HF hivemind if your not sure.

    It will drastically reduce the amount of trapped moisture and you won't have to dry your bag out.

    Everytime I get in a sleeping bag on a mat in my hammock, it gets damp. Using it as a quilt, it always comes out dry.
    Thanks for that!! That is an excellent tip!
