SNOWGUM Sturt 0c Sleeping Bag (RRP $159.95)
If a little unsure of the expected conditions on your upcoming adventure then the Sturt is a versatile option for 3 season camping or bushwalking in Australia. A sub zero temperature rating will keep you comfortable in inclement weather and at 1.6kg your back won’t be punished on the trail. The Sturt is an excellent bag for School camps, scouts or other youth groups as the filling will maintain insulation if damp and the bag is easy care and machine washable. This bag has double warmth on top and a single layer underneath so you must use it with an insulating mat.

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 and have either one or many 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.
