  Recommendations for others (not JackL)
  Posted by: Waterbird on Mar-12-13 11:33 PM (EST)

Can't answer Jack's question because he wants sythetic, but for those looking for down, here are two sleeping bags that are hard to beat:

1) LL Bean semi-rectangular 35 degrees.

2) LL Bean 20-degree rectangular Red&productId=1287265

I've been using exclusively down for the last 10 years for backpacking and kayaking, after 25 years with synthetics. I've never gotten a down sleeping bag wet. It's really not difficult to keep them dry. For me personally, down has every advantage over synthetics.

Some sleeping bags have a water-repellent coating. Bean's uses "DownTek" which is treated to retain its loft when wet.
