Snowgum uses synthetic fillings that have been created to emulate the air trapping characteristics of down.

Our synthetic fillings are made from a hollow fibre about the size of a strand of hair with several hollow channels in them. These are too small for the naked eye to see but they are very effective at trapping warm air and thus keeping your body warm. The fibres loft well (fluff up when removed from the storage sack) and are sewn into panels that are placed strategically around the bag for best performance (eg. some have more on the top than the bottom). Synthetic bags are not as warm as down bags for the same weight of filling but they do maintain their warmth when wet, and dry quickly - this is a significant advantage over down.
